(FeaturedNews.com) – On Saturday, California Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom and state Attorney General Rob Bonta announced a probe into the unexpected arrival of more than a dozen of migrants in Sacramento by plane in order to determine whether there were any crimes associated with the arrival.
In a statement released by Newsom, he noted that the migrants had first been moved from Texas to New Mexico before being transported by plane to Sacramento and left in front of a local church. There had been no warning of the arrival of the immigrants. He further noted that they would closely collaborate with the mayor’s office and local and nonprofit partners in order to ensure that all the new arrivals are being treated properly, and that they will be assisted with arriving at their intended destination.
The governor further explained that they were launching an investigation to determine who had played a role in transporting the immigrants and determining if there were any criminal wrongdoings associated with the movement.
In a separate statement, Bonta stated that all of the migrants had documentation that alleged that they were from Florida. He added that as part of the probe, they would potentially be pursuing criminal or civil action against those who had been responsible for the transportation of these immigrants.
He concluded by stating that they will continue to gather evidence in order to determine what has occurred.
At this point in time, it is still unclear exactly who is responsible for this latest movement of migrants to California. Multiple states have also transported migrants to sanctuary cities in the past, including migrants being moved to New York City, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.
