As word spread about a potential chartered plane carrying asylum-seekers and migrants to the Delaware Coastal Airport in Georgetown, state agencies and local community organizations rushed to make arrangements for its arrival.The plane was chartered through the same company Florida Governor Ron DeSantis used to send a group of largely Venezuelan asylum seekers to Martha's Vineyard last week – a political stunt that's prompted a criminal investigation in Texas, where that flight originated. The flight bound for Delaware Tuesday also began in Texas.
