California Governor Gavin Newsom asked the Department of Justice Thursday to consider “Kidnapping” and other charges against Republican Governors who sent illegal migrants to blue precincts like Chicago, Washington, and Martha’s Vineyard.
Newsom sent an official letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland to intervene on the matter.
“Several of the individuals who were transported to Martha’s Vineyard have alleged that a recruiter induced them to accept the offer of travel based on false representations that they would be transported to Boston and would receive expedited access to work authorization,” Newsom wrote. “I urge US DOJ to investigate whether the alleged fraudulent inducement would support charges of kidnapping under relevant state laws.”
