“Hoekom vlieg die administrasie duisende migrante van die grens na Florida & New York in die middel van die nag?” Peter Doocy van Fox News het Psaki Dinsdag gevra.
“Wel, I’m not sure that it’s in the middle of the night,” Psaki responded before being cut off by Doocy who read the flight times aloud.
“2:30 AM, 4:29 AM,” Doocy said before Psaki interrupted him saying, “Here we are talking about early flights, earlier than you might like to take a flight.”
“It is our legal responsibility to safely care for unaccompanied children until they can be swiftly reunited with a parent or a vetted sponsor,” Psaki added. “In onlangse weke, unaccompanied children have passed through the Westchester airport…en route to their final destination to be reunited with their parents or vetted sponsor. It’s no surprise that kids can be seen travelling through states, it’s not just New York.”
Die New York Post berig on Monday that planeloads of unaccompanied underage migrants have been secretly flown in the middle of the night into suburban New York on charter flights from Texas.
The report stated that around 2,000 illegal immigrants have landed at a New York Airport outside of White Plains on 21 flights since August 8.
Records show that many of those planes landed between midnight and 6:30 AM.
Ten minste 160,000 illegal immigrants have been vrygelaat into the Amerikaanse., often with little to no supervision, by die Biden administrasie since March – including a broad use of limited parole authorities to make more than 30,000 eligible for work permits since August, Border Patrol documents obtained by Fox News show.
Sedert Maart 20, ten minste 94,570 illegal immigrants have been released into the U.S. with Notices to Report. Those who receive such a notice are only required to check in with an ICE office when they get to their final destination – which could be anywhere across the country. Those who check in are not deported or detained as their immigration proceedings move forward.
