PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) – A new bill by U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) introduces relocating immigrants from the southern border to thirteen communities across the nation to be processed- including places in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

“That’s why today I am introducing this crucial legislation to alleviate the massive overload at the southern border by establishing new ports of entry in Democrat-led communities such as North Hero, Vermont, where Bernie Sanders spends his summers, and Martha’s Vineyard, where Democrat elites host their cocktail parties,” Sen. Cruz said in a statement.

It’s called Stop the SURGE Act. It would mandate that all immigrants who arrive in Texas be transferred to these ports for processing.

Other locations mentioned on this act include:

  • Block Island, R.I.
  • Greenwich, Conn.
  • Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.
  • Cambridge, Mass.
  • Governors Island, N.Y.
  • Rehoboth Beach, Del.
  • Nantucket, Mass.
  • Newport, R.I.
  • Scarsdale, N.Y.
  • Palo Alto, Calif.
  • Yountville, Calif.
  • St. Helena, Calif.
  • North Hero, Vt.

Rhode Island lawmakers promptly responding. Congressman Jim Langevin telling Cruz to ‘keep Rhode Island’s name out of your mouth’.
