The White House is coordinating with state and local officials in Delaware amid reports that a plane used to transport undocumented migrants to Martha’s Vineyard earlier this month would travel from Texas to President Joe Biden’s home state.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters that the administration had “received word” about the flight, but that the notice did not come from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. Flight tracking website FlightRadar24 showed the plane was expected to depart Texas and stop in Florida, before proceeding to Delaware.
