More Planes Full of Illegal Immigrants Land in US

At least five flights carrying illegal immigrants have recently landed in Pennsylvania, with a gubernatorial candidate alleging that the most recent “ghost flight” was flown in secret.

Former congressman Lou Barletta (R) says the Biden administration sent a World Atlantic Airlines flight with undocumented migrants aboard to the Lehigh Valley International Airport (LVIA) last week in “the hope that no one would notice.”

The Republican candidate for Pennsylvania governor released a press statement, saying that other “secret charter flights” carrying illegal immigrants had previously landed in Scranton in the past few weeks.

“The incredible secrecy and disregard for Pennsylvanians continues,” Barletta said. “First, we had to discover for ourselves that illegal immigrants were being shipped into Northeast Pennsylvania on at least four flights. But then when people demanded information, the flights were shifted to the Lehigh Valley and they just hoped no one would notice. While the Biden administration is playing games with the safety of Pennsylvanians, Gov. Tom Wolf and Attorney General Josh Shapiro are just throwing up their hands and saying it’s not their problem.”

However, Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-PA) denied the flights were conducted in secret, saying that the US Department of Health and Human Services had authorized them. According to the local outlet WFMZ, Cartwright said the flights carried unaccompanied migrant children, who were then bussed to their parents or approved sponsors.

The LVIA confirmed that it had received charter flights from the DHS and could see additional flights in the future.

“Under grant assurances with the Federal Aviation Administration and as a federally-obligated public use airport, the Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority does not have the ability to discriminate against any aeronautical activity by refusing or denying aircraft from arriving or departing Lehigh Valley International Airport,” the LVIA said in a statement.

Still, Barletta says it’s impossible to determine the age of everyone on the flights. He cited a recent incident in Florida, wherein a refugee who claimed to be 17-years-old turned out to be a 24-year-old homicide suspect.

    Hard to believe that if this was done, that it was in secret.

      How do you think thousands of Somalis were smuggled in decades ago when W Bush and Obama were President?

      Not a secret then, just ignored, because the Midwest corporate farmers and meat packers wanted them and bribed Congress!.

        The biggest influx of Somali refugees over the past 15 years occurred during the FY 2004-2006 period, after which the numbers dwindled before picking up again from FY 2014-2016, State Department Refugee Processing Center data show.

        The man who carried out a terror attack at a mall in central Minnesota on Saturday night was identified by family as Dahir Adan, a 22-year-old Somali-American college student whose father said was born in Africa and came to the U.S. 15 years ago, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
        The figures were highest during the middle years of the George W. Bush administration, with 13,331 Somali refugees admitted in FY 2004, 10,405 in FY 2005 and 10,357 in FY 2006.
        The numbers declined towards the end of the Bush presidency, dropping to 6,969 in FY 2007 and to 2,523 in FY 2008.

    I am a resident of Pa. and find this policy of not only allowing illegal trespassers to be provided residency in our commonwealth but to give them aid and comfort at the taxpayers expense.
    How is this not itself a criminal act: to aid and abet a criminal in his actions?
    Please stop calling them immigrants for that hints of legally migrating which these people definitely are not doing. They are ILLEGAL ALIENS>

    1. pia says:

      All those who aid and abet should be ostracized.

        CRIMINALIZED 11111

    As these criminals attempt to depart the airport they should be arrested as the criminals they are. These arrests should be made by Pennsylvania State Police. If the State Police do not have the courage to do their job then the local police or county sheriffs need to make the arrests. Someone needs to do their job! Let’s please step up to the plate law enforcement, or are we more interested in traffic tickets while our country slowly slips away. If our government fails the country, eventually the populace will be forced to deal with governmental failure to fulfill their duties.

  4. Lyudmila says:

    I do not think that illegal immigrants secretly brought by someone to our state are criminals, I do not even think that the Pennsylvania police are criminal, they carry out the criminal orders of the Pennsylvania criminal authorities, which came to power in Pennsylvania by criminal means.

    1. Diane says:

      Of course the illegals are criminals. They entered this country illegally committing a criminal act. Just because they got aid from a government agency does not make them less a criminal.
      The Pennsylvania State Police could act but are being stopped by the Feds in collusion with our governor in sheep’s clothing, Wolf.

  5. Robert Gruber says:

    Will these illegals get frequent flyer miles? Illegals seem more benefits than the average American! I like Gov. Ron Desantis’s proclamation that he was going to round up all illegals in his state of Florida and transport them to Delaware. If Uncle Joe wants them in this country, it would only befitting to send them to Delaware!
