Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Challenges Disney District

The Disney District, also known as the Reedy Creek Improvement District (RCID), is a special district in the state of Florida. The district encases the Walt Disney World theme parks and its neighboring resorts and is spread out across the two counties of Orange and Osceola.

But now, this land and its unique zoning laws have been infringed upon by the state’s own governor.

Florida Governor Ron Desantis’s Recent Inhumane and Xenophobia Attempt to Secure Reelection

Ron Desantis, Florida’s Republican Governor, used taxpayer money to lure a group of 50 immigrants on a plane sent for Martha’s Vineyard. Unable to find enough immigrants in Florida to use as his political pawns, he also transferred undocumented people from Texas, where Governor Greg Abbot had already begun implementing similar relocation policies. The people were tricked into boarding the plane and were lied to about the plane’s destination. They are currently in temporary housing on the wealthy, progressive island. California Governor, Gavin Newson, has denounced Desantis’s actions and requested that the Department of Justice investigate the Floridian politician for violating anti-trafficking laws.
