Midnight runs: Biden secretly flying underage migrants into NY in dead of night

Planeloads of underage migrants are being flown secretly into suburban New York in an effort by President Biden’s administration to quietly resettle them across the region, The Post has learned.

The charter flights originate in Texas, where the ongoing border crisis has overwhelmed local immigration officials, and have been underway since at least August, according to sources familiar with the matter.

Last week, The Post saw two planes land at the Westchester County Airport, where most of the passengers who got off appeared to be children and teens, with a small portion appearing to be men in their 20s.

Westchester County cops stood by as the passengers — whose flights arrived at 10:49 p.m. Wednesday and 9:52 p.m. Friday — got off and piled into buses.

Some of them were later seen meeting up with relatives or sponsors in New Jersey, or being dropped off at a residential facility on Long Island.

A Post analysis of online flight-tracking data suggests that around 2,000 migrants nabbed after sneaking into the US from Mexico have arrived at the airport outside White Plains on 21 flights since Aug. 8.

The clandestine nature of the operation raises questions about how the White House is dealing with surge in unaccompanied minors.

The most recent figures from US Customs and Border Protection show that just during July and August, 37,805 unaccompanied minors were caught entering the US from Mexico — sometimes after being abandoned by professional smugglers known as “coyotes.”

A source familiar with the operation at the Westchester airport said the underage migrants typically arrive carrying backpacks and are bused to locations including The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, upstate Newburgh and Bridgeport and Danbury in Connecticut.

On Friday night, one bus left the Westchester airport and barreled down the Hutchinson River Parkway — which is off-limits to commercial vehicles — at speeds greater than 75 mph before crossing the Throgs Neck Bridge.

Around 12:30 a.m. Saturday, it stopped in Syosset, Long Island, at the campus of MercyFirst, a nonprofit sponsored by the Catholic Sisters of Mercy that provides housing and services for “children and adolescents who are the victims of societal problems,” according to its website.

MercyFirst has a contract to supply the federal government with residential services for “immigrant youth,” according to the site.

MercyFirst CEO Renee Skolaski didn’t return a request for comment.

Later Saturday, a similar scene began playing out in Jacksonville, Fla., where many of the flights from Texas have touched down before continuing on to Westchester — and where The Post saw a Boeing 737-700 land shortly after 10 p.m. at Jacksonville International Airport.

As local cops stood by, a group of between 10 and 15 people wearing matching white baseball caps and carrying duffel bags got off the plane and onto a charter bus near a dormant cargo terminal.

After a two-hour ride, the group arrived around 1 a.m. Sunday at the Twin Oaks Academy, a juvenile detention center in the Apalachicola National Forest near Tallahassee, where staffers were waiting to open a gate topped with barbed wire.

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis expressed outrage at The Post’s findings, with a spokeswoman saying: “If the Biden Administration is so confident that their open-border policy is good for our country, why the secrecy?”

“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?” spokeswoman Christina Pushaw said.

“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.”

The Biden administration wants open borders, that's why the news media no longer says- Illegal Immigrants. They only use the phrase- Undocumented. This is to limit dissension and keep the flow of Illegal immigrants unimpeded.

Well of course they’ve been quietly and efficiently funneling these people into the country. That’s why you don’t hear about the “crisis at the border” anymore, the migrants didn’t stop coming, Biden just made it all move along smoothly so no more bottlenecks. They’ve got it domn to a science by now, just keep ‘em moving and no one will notice what’s really happening.

When I was growing up we had a refugee settlement camp in Central Florida, Camp San Pedro in facilities that belonged to the Catholic Church - uh oh. Anyway this was how it was used for a while

[quote] From 1961-1962 San Pedro’s camp was used for the temporary housing of Cuban children who were sent to Florida for safety by their parents during “Operation Pedro Pan,” the effort to assist unaccompanied minors fleeing Fidel Castro’s communist Cuba.

Everyone knew and accepted it as a refugee camp for children but it was never called that. There wasn't any opposition to it that I knew of. Maybe because these refugee children had fled communist Cuba.

But most of those Haitians were living in South American and Brazil and dropped their identifications before the border. There was something weird going on when over 10,000 people arrived at once to the border.

Oh r42, go back to defending Miss McCain:

"The fourth seat on the View is always intended to be the punching bag. A lightweight who just sputters ineffectually while the other three sneer and humiliate her. No Ann Coulters who can give as good as they got.

Meghan only got the job after Trump's election because her father was the leader of the anti-Trump wing and she was cast as the republican who is still a republican but just "CAN'T" go along with current party positions.

But interestingly Meghan actually started to fight back against the three harpies. I think that probably had less to do with defending Trump than just responding to the black holes of hatefulnerss she had to work with day after day.

Whatever she was paid to be around those people wasn't enough."

A New York Democrat demanded answers from the Biden White House on Tuesday about the underage migrants being secretly slipped into his district — after finding out about the situation from The Post.

Rep. Tom Suozzi, whose district includes parts of Long Island and Queens, said he was “very angry and frustrated that I wasn’t advised ahead of time.”

“Y’know, I first learned about it from The Post!” he said.

“I’ve been talking to the administration for six months. I said, ‘I want you to tell us, how many kids are coming to our area? What schools they are going to?’ And they haven’t given us detailed information yet.”

Suozzi also read from a Tuesday letter to President Biden, saying, “As of June 2021, the Office of Refugee Resettlement has reported 2,494 unaccompanied minors have been relocated to Queens, Nassau and Suffolk counties.”

Suozzi’s remarks followed an exclusive Post report that revealed how Biden’s administration has been flying planeloads of unaccompanied minors from Texas to airports in Westchester County and Jacksonville, Fla.

Biden's pick to head Customs and Border Protection, Chris Magnus, refused to classify the situation at the southern border as a crisis

Republican Senator Todd Young of Indiana pushed Magnus on the surge of illegal immigration under Biden during a confirmation hearing on Tuesday

'Does it really matter whether we call it a major challenge, a crisis, a big problem?' Magnus questioned, without saying if he thought it was a crisis

Also on Tuesday, 𝑺𝒆𝒏𝒂𝒕𝒐𝒓 𝑻𝒆𝒅 𝑪𝒓𝒖𝒛 𝒊𝒏𝒕𝒓𝒐𝒅𝒖𝒄𝒆𝒅 𝒂 𝒃𝒊𝒍𝒍 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒘𝒐𝒖𝒍𝒅 𝒎𝒐𝒗𝒆 𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒄𝒆𝒔𝒔𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒄𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒆𝒓𝒔 𝒇𝒐𝒓 𝒊𝒍𝒍𝒆𝒈𝒂𝒍 𝒎𝒊𝒈𝒓𝒂𝒏𝒕𝒔 𝒕𝒐 𝒘𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒆 '𝑫𝒆𝒎𝒐𝒄𝒓𝒂𝒕 𝒆𝒍𝒊𝒕𝒆𝒔 𝒉𝒐𝒔𝒕 𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒊𝒓 𝒄𝒐𝒄𝒌𝒕𝒂𝒊𝒍 𝒑𝒂𝒓𝒕𝒊𝒆𝒔'

This includes North Hero, Vermont, where Bernie Sanders spends his summers, and Martha's Vineyard, where Barack Obama owns a home

Cruz hopes this will alleviate pressures on southern border states and hit closer to home for Democratic elites, who he claims are ignoring the crisis
