President Biden has been quietly sending taxpayer-funded charter flights filled with migrant children, teens, and young adults into U.S. communities under cover of darkness, according to a shocking report in the New York Post.
From there, they are loaded onto buses and quietly resettled in various locations throughout the U.S., including parts of New York, Connecticut, Tennessee, and Florida.
The covert nature of the operation exposes the lengths to which the Biden administration is willing to go in order to subvert immigration law and avoid scrutiny when it comes to America’s unprecedented border crisis.
According to the report, the “midnight flights” originate in Texas, where at least 30,000 mostly-Haitian migrants have illegally crossed into the U.S since August. According to an unnamed source for the Post who has knowledge of the activity, passengers are flown in after dark and then loaded onto charter buses that transport them to government-contracted facilities or predetermined meeting sites where they can connect with family members or sponsors.
The Post details a migrant flight coming into Syosset, Long Island at around 12:30 a.m. Saturday. From there, passengers were taken to MercyFirst, a nonprofit Catholic charity offering residential services and resources to vulnerable children. According to its website, MercyFirst is contracted by the federal government to provide housing for “immigrant youth.”
Many of the flights coming out of Texas touch down at the Jacksonville International Airport, where the Post reports witnessing between 10 and 20 migrant passengers wearing matching baseball hats and carrying duffel bags emerge from a Boeing 737-700 at around 10 p.m. As police officers stood by, they were escorted to a non-operating cargo terminal and placed on a charter bus. From there, they were taken to a juvenile detention center in the Apalachicola National Forest near Tallahassee where they were greeted by staff
The Post further reports flight-tracking data showing that, since August 8, 21 flights carrying approximately 2,000 illegal immigrants have landed at an airport near White Plains, NY, many touching down between midnight and 6:30 a.m., during which time a voluntary curfew is in effect for that area.
According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, 37,805 unaccompanied minors illegally entered the US in the months of July and August, many of whom were left abandoned by “coyotes” paid to smuggle them across the southern border.
On Wednesday, two buses picked up approximately 100 passengers from the Westchester Airport. One of the buses was seen stopping at a service area along the New Jersey Turnpike close to 1 a.m.
A woman living near the airport confirmed that planes have been arriving between 2 and 4 a.m. recently and remarked that the airport appears to be “much darker than usual” during this time, “I guess so you can’t see what’s going on,” she said. She also reports seeing buses bearing “out of service” signs gathered in the airport’s parking lot in the middle of the night.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino, who once served as a Westchester County Executive, said he reported the clandestine activity in August but was ignored:
Since I first broke this story in August, the number of flights & migrants being transferred from the southern border to Westchester and beyond has only increased. Our politicians have now created a sanctuary nation – no borders, no ramifications and no worries. @mirandadevine https://t.co/pYtrdIk6Ey

Astorino first became aware of the midnight flights when citizens began complaining about curfew violations. He reported seeing between 50 and 75 migrants arrive at the airport, most of whom appeared to be men older than 20, during an August press conference. “No one has explained where they’re going and who they are,” he said, adding, “The Biden administration is systematically spreading the southern border crisis to communities all around the country, often shrouded in secrecy and under the cloak of darkness.”
The sad thing is that @RobAstorino held a press conference at White Plains airport on August 16 to blow the whistle on the Biden Adminstration’s clandestine migrant flights – and he was ignored and traduced as a racist https://t.co/ZJsQ8JJWtY

“Why is the Biden Administration refusing to share even the most basic information about illegal alien resettlement in communities throughout our state and the entire country?” asked Ron DeSantis spokeswoman Christina Pushaw. “Washington DC sets immigration policies that do not affect them, and states — that lack information about migrant resettlement and do not have the authority to change federal immigration policy — are expected to bear the brunt of Biden’s reckless open-borders agenda,” she said.
Meanwhile, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services spokesperson Jorge Silva said the department has a “legal responsibility to safely care for unaccompanied children until they can be swiftly unified with a parent or a vetted sponsor.”
