Looks like Joe Biden may be doing a little bit of “human trafficking himself”. As Democrats continue to point the finger at Governors Ron DeSantis (R-FL) and Greg Abbott (R-TX) for flying immigrants to ‘sanctuary cities’, Dems might want to look into their own party first, starting with President Joe Biden.
According to the Daily Wire, the number of people boarding flights from airports in Texas’s illegal immigration hot-zone skyrocketed in 2021 even as business plummeted at almost all other airports because of the coronavirus pandemic, a Daily Wire review of newly released Federal Aviation Administration data found.
The records as analyzed present a pattern that could suggest the scale at which the Biden administration and federally-supported charities have been moving illegal immigrants around the country.
While the vast majority of airports lost passengers from 2019 to 2021, among the 22 airports that grew the fastest were those in the Rio Grande Valley that play a key role in the federal government’s migrant-moving operation: Brownsville, McAllen, Harlingen, and Laredo. The number of passengers boarding flights out of those airports rose from 978,000 in 2019 to 1,110,000 in 2021, the Daily Wire reported.
“But even that 132,000-person increase may understate the growth of traffic at these airports. If ordinary Americans stopped using those airports in 2021 due to coronavirus at the same rate they did elsewhere, the surplus over the expected 2021 figure (70% of 2019’s total) could be as high as 425,000,” Luke Rosiak from the Daily Wire concluded.
In addition, Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio registered 13,000 outbound passengers in 2021, compared to only 936 in 2019 and 247 in 2018.
“This data illuminates the contempt that the Biden administration holds for those who oppose their agenda. After spending nearly two years quietly flying illegal immigrants all over the country, the Biden administration now wants to call Republican governors ‘human traffickers’ for giving them a taste of their own medicine. Shame on them,” Rep. Dan Bishop (R-North Carolina), a member of the Committee on Homeland Security and its Border Security subcommittee, said of The Daily Wire’s findings.
“It’s important to remember that Biden has been secretly flying illegal aliens late at night under the cover of darkness for over a year. Democrats, celebrities, and the media didn’t care about any of these flights until Governor DeSantis sent 50 illegals to Martha’s Vineyard,” RJ Hauman, director of government relations and communications at the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), which advocates for immigration controls, told The Daily Wire.
“Biden can learn from how Martha’s Vineyard responded — they essentially deported all the illegal aliens who were transported there within 24 hours. Start doing that down at the border and the crisis will end,” he said.
