So, ice flew migrants across the country under cover of night a few months ago?
Looking for verifiable sources. If so, how is it different from what Texas and Florida have done recently?
“Immigrants who enter the US at the southern border are sent to various cities where they are released, said a former Immigration and Customs Enforcement field officer.
Government-contracted planes transport migrants from the border to the custody of ICE field offices across the country, Fox News reported Tuesday. At least tens of thousands of people have been released from these destinations, the news outlet added.
“It’s happening on a massive scale,” said Tom Feeley, a former director of the ICE Buffalo Field Office. “[Field offices are] getting beat up every day answering calls from headquarters about who they can release to make room for more people at the border. And the following week, they get more calls almost daily, again, about who can be released to make room for more people at the border.
“Basically all we’re doing is catching them at the border, sending them inland, releasing them and getting more and then releasing them and then getting more and releasing them.”
iAero Airways, a major government contractor, flies migrants to places like Chicago, Denver, Minneapolis, New York City, Yakima in Washington and Harrisburg in Pennsylvania.
