The non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that are being paid by the American taxpayer to fly border crossers and illegal immigrants into the country must be made public, according to a request from House Republicans to President Joe Biden.
The White House has been flying border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the United States on domestic commercial flights, permitting them to use arrest warrants and deportation orders as valid forms of identification, according to records from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) released in January.
Biden’s DHS airlifted almost 45,000 border crossers and illegal immigrants into the interior of the United States between January 2021 and October 2021. Nearly 1,000 of those passengers, according to TSA authorities, have boarded domestic commercial planes using arrest warrants and deportation letters as forms of identification since Biden assumed office.
The number of border crossers and illegal immigrants flown into the interior of the United States, the cost to taxpayers, and how much money NGOs profited from the operation are now being demanded by a group of House Republicans from Biden’s DHS.
The Republicans note that it is “very worrisome that TSA is permitting illegal immigrants to use nonsecure papers as IDs to board flights” given that “American citizens are frequently informed that their IDs will soon need to be REAL ID compliant to board an airline.”
“Members of Congress received confirmation from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in January 2022 that between January 1, 2021, and October 31, 2021, the TSA permitted about 45,000 illegal aliens to board aircraft without presenting identification (ID) on the list of acceptable forms of ID. These illegal immigrants showed DHS-issued credentials rather than approved forms of identification.”
“Furthermore, in testimony given last month, acting administrator David Pekoske said that so far this year, TSA had allowed “under 1,000” people to fly “with arrest warrants or deportation orders” rather than recognized forms of identification. Given that DHS has already allowed approximately 500,000 illegal immigrants into the country this year, this figure appears very low.”
“All law-abiding, tax-paying Americans should be outraged by the fact that money from the U.S. taxpayers is being utilized, either directly or indirectly, to pay for the transportation of illegal immigrants throughout the nation. DHS should invest that cash in expanding its detention facilities so that it can hold illegal immigrants as per the law, rather than utilizing public money to transport them.”
House Republicans are cautioning that, in addition to employing airplanes to transport border crossers and illegal immigrants into American neighborhoods, the Biden administration may begin using Amtrak to support his extensive catch-and-release program.
The congressmen responded, “We are gravely worried that Amtrak’s resources… may be exploited to carry these unauthorized immigrants.”
The Biden administration released over a million border crossers and illegal immigrants into American neighborhoods between February 2021 and May 2022. The numbers for releases in June and July have not yet been made public.
Since approximately 4.9 million people are projected to have entered the country’s borders since Biden took office and between 11 and 22 million illegal immigrants are already residing in the U.S., the majority of Americans now think there is “an invasion” at the southern border.
