(PatriotWise.com)- The New York Post reported last Friday that the Biden administration’s late-night charter flights transporting illegal alien minors from the US southern border to New York State have resumed.
According to the Post, last Thursday, an Avelo Airlines flight arrived at Westchester County Airport after dark where the illegals on board were then transferred to three buses that took them away from the airport.
One of the buses crossed into New Jersey and stopped at the Walt Whitman Service Area along the turnpike near Cherry Hill. Several illegals got off the bus and left with awaiting adults. The bus then left the service area around one in the morning and continued south on the New Jersey Turnpike.
According to flight records, the Avelo Airlines plane that brought the illegal minors to Westchester originated from El Paso International Airport in Texas and stopped in Jacksonville, Florida before making its way to New York.
Former Westchester County Executive, Republican Rob Astorino, has been raising the alarm about these nighttime flights from the border into New York since last fall. He told the Post that the Biden administration resuming these flights “is a big middle finger to hard-working New York taxpayers.”
Calling the practice, “frustrating” and “outrageous,” Astorino blasted New York’s Democrat Governor Kathy Hochul for being “complicit in this.”
Astorino, who is running in the New York Republican gubernatorial primary, told the Post that the Biden administration resumed the shuttle flights from the border to New York sometime last month.
However, a source from Immigration and Customs Enforcement told the Post that while the late-night flights may have been paused in Westchester County, they “never stopped” at other airports around the country, adding “It’s like the Energizer Bunny. They just keep going and going.”
In a statement to the Post, the US Department of Health and Human Services said it was their “legal responsibility to provide safe, appropriate care to unaccompanied migrant children” in their custody, including transporting them to “vetted sponsors” while their immigration cases are being processed.
