A sheriff’s office in Texas is recommending criminal charges in connection with last year’s flights of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard.

The incident happened in September, when 49 migrants were flown to the Vineyard from Florida after being picked up in Texas. 

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has claimed responsibility for the move. 

Back in Texas, the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office on Monday said several accounts of unlawful restraint were filed. 

The case was being reviewed by the Bexar County District Attorney’s office as of Monday afternoon.

A similar situation to the Martha’s Vineyard flights happened on Monday when a plane with 20 migrants on board landed in Sacramento, California. Previously, on Friday, 16 migrants were left at a Sacramento church without warning.

The same company with Florida ties appeared to be involved in both incidents.

California officials have since launched an investigation into the matter
