The federal government has been ferrying illegal immigrants seized at the southern border throughout the nation, using a secret itinerary dependent on chartered flights and small regional airports, a Daily Wire investigation has shown. Even as the number of illegal immigrants met at the border has got to record levels topping 200,000 every month, the Biden administration has been secretive regarding where those allowed to stay are sent. Word has typically trickled out from states where uninvited flights land and immigrants disperse.

Ron DeSantis’ (R-FL) public safety czar, explained to the Washington Examiner. The Daily Wire identified nearly three dozen charter planes thought to have been deployed to move illegal immigrants. Using flight radar data from FlightRadar24, we reconstructed the planes’ itineraries to reveal a breathtakingly complex network. The data follows the movement of the planes, mainly Boeing 737s owned by a handful of charter-jet companies, over the last six months of 2021.

Still other times, they seem to be flying illegal immigrants to small airports across the nation where they frequently land in the dark of night to be settled nearby. On Christmas night, for instance, two flights carrying roughly 240 migrants from Texas landed in eastern Pennsylvania, igniting one lawmaker to observe that the border disaster was now a national problem. “‘Wilkes Barre and Scranton are now border cities as a direct result of the Biden administration’s policies,’” Rep. Dan Meuser (R-PA) commented. It cannot be determined from available data that all of the flights involve the transport of migrants. And some stops in the interior could be to pick up migrants to deport rather than drop them off. ICE flights are known to transfer detainees between 24 airports near field offices and make many stops at such facilities on their way out of the nation, though those sites only account for a fraction of the cities on the map. Nonetheless, the data, combined with the White House’s secrecy, reporting from local news media, and information uncovered by local officials, strongly indicates the federal government is basically picking up where coyotes left off to provide illegal immigrants the final leg of transportation into the interior of the U.S. [tweet_embed] June 23, 2022[/tweet_embed] DeSantis’s office only learned of the flights coming into Florida from local law enforcement. When state officials attempted to determine who was behind the mystery flights, the Biden administration declined to say who was on them, where they were going, or even who was managing them, Keefe explained to the Washington Examiner.
