It was an awfully expensive plane ride to Martha’s Vineyard

To the Editor:

If you want to send migrants out of Florida, find a cheaper way to do it. Gov. DeSantis spent $615,000 to fly 50 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard in an effort to embarrass Democrats.
I checked with commercial airlines and found tickets for $287 to $777 DeSantis spent $12,300 per migrant. I could have spent, at the most, $38,850.
Where is the Tea Party at this outrageous waste of taxpayers dollars?
I thought Republicans were fiscal watchdogs. Could it be they are as wasteful as they have accused Democrats of being?
