It is not the first time Griffey got inspiration from current events for new legislation in his State. In January, he put forward HB1769, which would force the state to hand over legal fees for the defendants accused of violent crimes who are then successfully ruled to have acted in self-defense.
He said the bill “Kyle’s Law,” in honor of Kyle Rittenhouse, a teenager who was acquitted in Nov. of killing two men and wounding another during the BLM riots in August 2020.
This time, the general notion of Griffey’s bill came from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
At a press conference to describe his strategy for the upcoming Florida legislature sessions, Gov. DeSantis made the suggestion that he might send illegals to Delaware and Martha’s Vineyard, which are two areas where top Democratic politicians have vacation homes.
“If you send them to Martha’s Vineyard or Delaware, our border would get secured the next day,” DeSantis said in Dec., as Fox News said.
Griffey’s bill went beyond just Martha’s Vineyard and Delaware, though.
The towns listed are Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, Greenwich, Connecticut, Block Island, Rhode Island, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Governors Island, New York, Nantucket, Massachusetts, Scarsdale, New York, Newport, Rhode Island, Yountville, California, Palo Alto, California, St. Helena, California; and North Hero, Vermont.
President Biden’s home state is Delaware, and California is the home of VP Kamala Harris, Pelosi and many other liberals. Jen Psaki, the current White House media secretary is from Greenwich, Connecticut. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has a vacation home in the city of North Hero, Vermont.
