Biden Administration Quietly Flies Illegal Immigrants to New York in Middle of Night: Report
According to a new report, the Biden administration has been quietly flying underage illegal immigrants from Texas to New York for more than two months to relocate the tens of thousands of migrants detained at the border in recent weeks.
Analysis of the New York Post's online flight tracking data suggests that approximately 2,000 migrants have landed at suburban New York City Westchester County Airport on 21 flights since Aug. 8. Many of the planes landed between midnight and 6:30 a.m. when there is a voluntary curfew.
The report describes night flights that arrive under cover of darkness and are filled with children and young people. New York Post reporters watched two planes land at the airport.
Many of the migrants were then seen meeting with relatives or sponsors in New Jersey, or being dropped off on the campus of MercyFirst, a nonprofit sponsored by the Catholic Sisters of Charity, in Syosset, Long Island. MercyFirst offers housing and services for "children and young people who are victims of social problems," it says on its website.
Someone familiar with the situation reportedly told the point of sale that migrant minors typically arrive with backpacks and are bus driven to locations in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Newburgh state, and Bridgeport and Danbury, Connecticut.
The report adds that many of the Texas flights land in Jacksonville, Florida first before continuing on to Westchester. On Saturday, reporters saw a Boeing 737-700 land shortly after 10 p.m. at Jacksonville International Airport. A group of 10-15 people boarded a charter bus near a quiet cargo terminal and drove two hours to the Twin Oaks Academy, a juvenile detention center in the Apalachicola National Forest near Tallahassee.
A Florida governor spokesman Ron DeSantis asked why the Biden government is "secretly" relocating migrants when it is "so confident that its open borders policy is good for our country".
"Why is the Biden administration refusing to share even the most basic information about illegal resettlement of foreigners in communities across our state and across the country?" Said spokeswoman Christina Pushaw.
Former Westchester County executive Rob Astorino, a Republican candidate for governorship, told the newspaper that April was the first time smaller planes arrived. At the beginning, the flights were not "so frequent," he said.
He described a press conference he held at the airport in August that saw a flight arriving with at least 50 to 70 migrants, most of whom were men over 20. The migrants boarded a bus that stopped next to the air staircase, obscuring the view of the people boarding it.
He accused the Biden government of "systematically expanding the crisis on the southern border to communities across the country, often in secrecy and under the cloak of darkness."
The White House announced on Monday that the flights will only carry children and teenagers.
"It is our legal responsibility to safely care for unaccompanied children until they can be quickly reunited with a parent or verified sponsor," said the US Department of Health.
"Our Office of Refugee Resettlement makes it easier for the children in his care to travel to their families or sponsors across the country," said HHS spokesman Jorge Silva of the sales outlet. "In the past few weeks, unaccompanied children have passed Westchester Airport on their way to their final destination to be reunited with their parents or a verified sponsor."
The report comes when border guards met 37,805 unaccompanied minors at the border in July and August alone.
