The packets included a map with Martha’s Vineyard marked with a red star with the label “YOU ARE HERE,” written in both English and Spanish. The packets also had documents with local resources, including the contact information for community services and churches in the area, potential employment opportunities and public assistance programs.
“They were given rolling backpacks, food, snacks throughout, clothing, necessities like toothbrush, toiletries, etc.,” the source said. “This is what was in the packet given to every migrant.”
Despite being given the packets, some of the illegal migrants that were transported told multiple news outlets that they misinformed about their destination before boarding the planes.
Boston immigration attorney Rachel Self showed reporters Friday a map of the U.S. with Martha’s Vineyard clearly marked, according to The Miami Herald.
“To these wonderful people who find themselves plane-wrecked on our island, I have a message for all of them,” Self said. “You are not alone. We have your backs. We are proud to be here for you.”
