‘Why…So Secretive?’: Rep on Biden Admin’s ‘Ghost Flights’ of Illegals Into PA
A congressman from Pennsylvania wants answers on so-called ghost flights of illegal immigrants into his state.
“About 2,000 persons over the last three weeks were flown in and then shuttled off on buses to whereabouts unknown,” Rep. Dan Meuser (R-PA) told The Todd Starnes Show.
Some of the planes flew into the area including Wilkes-Barre and Scranton as well as Allentown.
“It’s been occurring now for the last three weeks, and when I say they’re trying to do it as secret as possible, it’s literally the dead of night,” said Meuser. “They sent in two planeloads on Christmas night, around 9 o’clock, and the only way I really found out about it was there were leaks at the airports where people are talking about it.”
The bus drivers have been very quiet about where they traveled, but Meuser said one driver did state that they were going to Brooklyn. Meanwhile, Meuser said he was told that everybody was getting COVID tested and that the majority of the passengers were under 18.
“For Customers and Border Protection (CBP) to determine somebody’s age is a guessing game at best,” said Meuser. “As for the vetting system, if you have no identification of whom the individual is, how could you possibly look for criminal records?”
“That’s just unacceptable,” said host Todd Starnes. “We’ve seen the same thing happen in Tennessee where flights were landing in the dark of night in Chattanooga and we’re not just talking about kids, but grown adults here.”
In October, when pressed about the secret, nighttime flights of illegals out of Texas, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that officials have a “legal responsibility to safely care for unaccompanied children until they can be swiftly unified with a parent or a vetted sponsor.”
Meuser called that spin.
“If this is such wonderful policy, why are they keeping it so secretive?”
Meuser went on to say that former President Trump’s border policies were working until President Biden entered into office.
“We had a secure border and now we have an open border, and it’s not because we have a refugee problem,” said Meuser. “I went to Department of Homeland Security (DHS), but since it was primarily unaccompanied minors, they sent it over to Health and Human Services (HHS) and they were very cordial but there was also the bureaucratic bologna that takes place of dancing around much of what I needed to know, such as ‘why are you doing this in the middle of the night?’”
