This Week in South Florida: Jason Pizzo

When the State of Florida recruited a group of Venezuelans to take a plane flight from San Antonio to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, it may have violated the law that authorized migrant relocations.

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – When the State of Florida recruited a group of Venezuelans to take a plane flight from San Antonio to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, it may have violated the law that authorized migrant relocations.

Public records about the flights were made public this weekend by several news organizations.

They appear to indicate the Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and the Florida Department of Transportation broke the law by flying those Venezuelan migrants from San Antonio to the posh resort island in Massachusetts.

State Senator Jason Pizzo filed a lawsuit as an individual citizen, challenging the legality of what the state did with those Venezuelan migrants.

He’s a Democrat from northeast Miami-Dade and he joined This Week in South Florida hosts Michael Putney and Glenna Milberg to discuss. Their conversation can be seen at the top of this page.
