What Is The deal With Joe Biden’s ‘Ghost Flights’ of Illegal Aliens

What’s the deal with Biden’s ‘ghost flights’ of illegal aliens?

By: William Davis

Is the Biden administration quietly importing large numbers of illegal aliens through midnight flights?

That would be a reasonable conclusion based on recent reports about the Biden administration’s resettlement process. The White House is being accused of chartering flights for hundreds of “mostly minor-age” illegal aliens to Pennsylvania, according to a report.

The “ghost flights” allegedly took place over the course of three weeks during the month of September, and concluded shortly after the Christmas holiday. Flight tracking websites showed at least one flight from El Paso, Texas to Scranton, Pennsylvania on Dec. 17. That flight was chartered by iAero Airways, which contracts with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Jim Gallagher, president of Aviation Technologies Inc., the Scranton airport’s fixed-base operator, claimed that he observed mostly young, non-English speaking people exiting planes and leaving on busses at the Scranton airport.

The allegations garnered the attention of two of Pennsylvania’s top Republicans, Rep. Dan Meuser and former Rep. Lou Barletta, a candidate in the state’s upcoming gubernatorial election. Both Meuser and Barletta wrote letters to ICE Director Tae Johnson and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas ripping the administration’s handling of the border crisis, and demanding answers over the flights.

This mismanagement is now directly impacting the people I represent, and I expect you will provide me the answers I need to address my constituents’ concerns,” Meuser wrote.

Now we see evidence of more flights on Christmas night, and people want to know if illegal immigrants are being transported to our community, whether they’ve undergone background checks and health screenings, and why no one was notified that this was happening,” Barletta wrote.

Barletta later shared photos of what he claimed showed a flight full of illegal aliens at Lehigh Valley Airport in Allentown, Pennsylvania, while suggesting that the Biden administration shifted the flights from Scranton to Allentown following the initial backlash. Meuser has also accused the Biden administration of using funds intended to fight the COVID-19 pandemic to resettle illegal aliens into the U.S.

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf denied that migrants were being resettled into his state. Wolf, a Democrat, claims that the migrants were simply passing through the state en route to their final destination, and accused Republicans of engaging in a “political PR stunt.” However, this is not the first time the Biden administration has been accused of resettling illegal aliens into the U.S. through secretive, midnight flights.

Just last month, Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis accused the Biden administration of effectively running a “human smuggling operation” by sending planes full of illegal aliens into his state. DeSantis accused the administration of having sent 70 such flights to the state over a six-month period. DeSantis has earmarked $8 million in his proposed budget to ship illegal aliens coming into his state to Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware.

The Biden administration has not addressed any of the accusations emanating from elected officials in Florida and Pennsylvania, likely because their allies in the corporate media have not bothered to cover the accusations. However, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki previously acknowledged that the administration was flying planes full of illegal aliens to New York under cover of darkness. It seems likely, based on the White House’s pattern of behavior, that the accounts from officials in Florida and Pennsylvania are true.

The Biden administration has an established pattern of secrecy when it comes to its immigration policies, and it’s not just about the ghost flights. This month, it was reported that the Biden administration had been hiding the arrest records and terrorist ties of new arrivals. The White House has also withheld an annual report on the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deportations. It was the first time in more than a decade that ICE failed to release an annual report, ending an era of bipartisan transparency on this subject.

Given Biden’s horrific approval ratings, it’s no surprise that his administration is dispersing illegal aliens throughout the U.S. in secret. But, we should all be grateful to local and state officials who work to bring the consequences of the administration’s anti-borders agenda into the light.

4 Comments on What Is The deal With Joe Biden’s ‘Ghost Flights’ of Illegal Aliens

  1. The Obama administration is offering FREE transportation for illegals AT TAXPAYER EXPENSE from three Central American countries and a special refugee/parole program with “resettlement assistance” and PERMANENT residency.
    Under the new initiative the administration has rebranded the official name it originally assigned to the droves of illegals who continue sneaking into the U.S. They’re no longer known as Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC), a term that evidently was offensive and not politically correct for the open borders movement. The new arrivals will be officially known as Central American Minors (CAM) and they will be eligible for a special refugee/parole that offers a FREE ONE-WAY flight to the U.S. from El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras. The project is a joint venture between the Dept of Homeland Security (DHS) and the State Dept.
    Specifically, the “program provides certain children in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras with a safe, legal, and orderly alternative to the dangerous journey that some children are undertaking to the United States,” according to a DHS memo obtained by Judicial Watch this week. The document goes on to say that the CAM program has started accepting applications from “qualifying parents” to bring their offspring under the age of 21 from El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras. The candidates will then be granted a special refugee parole, which includes many TAXPAYER-FUNDED PERKS and BENEFITS. Among them is FREE education, food stamps, medical care and living expenses!
    During a special teleconference this week officials from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the State Department explained how CAM will work. Only “FRIENDLY” (‘friendly’ to the Democrats) groups and individuals invited by the government were allowed to participate and THE EVENT WAS NOT OPEN TO THE MEDIA. (They do NOT want taxpayers to know about this!) Judicial Watch attended as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) with interest in the matter. Obama administration officials offered an overview of the new CAM initiative and confirmed that the U.S. has already deployed staff to the region to handle the influx of applicants. A State Department official promoted CAM as a “family reunification” program that will be COMPLETELY FUNDED by American TAXPAYERS, though the official claimed to have no idea what the cost will be!
    A U.S.-based parent will initiate the application to bring his or her child in from any of the three Central American countries. To qualify they must be a permanent resident, a parolee or a beneficiary of Obama’s recent amnesty or deferred action. Many have probably lived illegally in the U.S. for years. The only out-of-pocket cost is for a DNA test to assure the child belongs to the applicant but Uncle Sam will reimburse the money if the result is positive. A U.S. official will interview the child, then a medical exam and “cultural orientation” will be conducted before the minor flies to the U.S. Once in the U.S. the illegal alien will get “resettlement assistance,” the State Department official confirmed during the teleconference.
    If the applicant doesn’t qualify for the more desirable refugee status he or she can be considered for parole, a USCIS official explained in the teleconference, which was attended mostly by immigrant rights groups known for advocating on behalf of illegal aliens. Refugee status is a form of protection offered to those who are deemed of special humanitarian concern to the United States. Parole allows individuals who may be otherwise inadmissible to come to the U.S. on a case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit. The State Department official assured that applicants need not express or document a credible fear to qualify under CAM because “WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THIS PROGRAM IS OPEN TO AS MANY ILLEGALS AS POSSIBLE.”
