“It’s no surprise that kids can be seen traveling through states, not just New York.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was forced to admit Tuesday that the Biden administration is shipping planeloads of illegal immigrant children to New York City and elsewhere in the middle of the night after photos and footage was captured by The New York Post.
The practice has been ongoing, with destinations not limited to New York, prompting Fox News reporter Peter Doocy to confront Psaki on it.
“Why is the administration flying thousands of migrants from the border to Florida and New York in the middle of the night?” Doocy asked.
“Well, I’m not sure that’s in the middle of the night. But let me tell you what’s happening here,” replied Psaki, prompting Doocy to point out that 2am is the middle of the night.
Psaki continued, “It is our legal responsibility to safely care for unaccompanied children until they can be swiftly unified with a parent or a vetted sponsor. And that’s something we take seriously.”
“As a part of the unification process, our Office of Refugee Resettlement facilitates travel for children in its custody to their families or sponsors across the country,” she added.
Psaki then admitted that “in recent weeks, unaccompanied children pass through the Westchester airport, which I think is what you’re referring to, in route to their final destination to be unified with their parents or vetted sponsor.”
“It’s no surprise that kids can be seen traveling through states, not just New York. It’s something that we’re also working to unite children with their family members or vetted sponsors in other parts of the country as well,” Psaki further admitted.
Meanwhile, First Lady Jill Biden recently spoke at an event promoting the school of a donor whose non-profit instructs illegal immigrants on how to avoid arrest.
“El Centro’s nonprofit arm has published a series of videos on how illegal immigrants can avoid arrests, with tips such as ignoring ICE agents during any interactions and contacting ‘a member of the community who does have status,’” Fox News reported.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz has introduced legislation dubbed the “Stop the Surge Act,” which seeks to ensure that “Democrats face the disaster of their policies and the humanitarian misery they are causing” through normalizing illegal immigration.
In a statement, Cruz urged that “For the past ten months, President Biden and his administration have willingly surrendered the United States’ southern border to dangerous criminal cartels, with no thought given to the South Texas border communities like McAllen and Del Rio, which are running low on resources from dealing with this massive influx of illegal immigrants.”
The statement continues, “That’s why today I am introducing this crucial legislation to alleviate the massive overload at the southern border by establishing new ports of entry in Democrat-led communities such as North Hero, Vermont, where Bernie Sanders spends his summers, and Martha’s Vineyard, where Democrat elites host their cocktail parties.”
Labeling the surge at the border a “horrific humanitarian crisis,” Cruz further urged “If Washington Democrats had to endure even a fraction of the suffering South Texas families, farmers, ranchers, and small businesses have had to face, our nation’s immigration laws would be enforced, the wall would be built, and the Remain in Mexico policy would be re-implemented.”
