ICE shipping planeloads of illegal immigrants to Massachusetts

A Boston TV station has discovered that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been flying planeloads of illegal immigrants to Massachusetts over the past couple of weeks.

ICE officials confirmed to Fox 25 on Friday that at least six commercial, agency-owned charter flights have transported detainees to the Boston area. The agency told the station that moving detainees from the southern borders to other areas of the country is routine.

“There are a number of concerns,” said Jessica Vaughn spokesperson for the Center for Immigration Studies, adding that the crisis at the border is distracting U.S. agencies from their regular mission to deport illegal immigrants convicted of crimes.

Recent reports found that in May, ICE released 36,000 immigrants with criminal convictions into communities for a number of reasons, Vaughn said.

“This influx of people is a direct result of recent policies,” she said. “According to border patrol’s own intelligence, what the immigrants are telling them, is that they’re coming now because there’s a new law that gives them permission to stay.”

When Fox 25 questioned Massachusetts Gov. Duval Patrick about the flights, he said he was just hearing about the situation.

“I don’t know anything about it,” Patrick said.

“How does the governor not know anything about this?” the news anchor asked.

    Believe it or not this is actually routine procedure that has been going on for years and years. Way before this administration. This is NOT and Obama set policy. Stop letting people stir you up with fear mongering.

      Contrary to your assertion, (and you apparently aren’t able to read) . . .this is a “wave” of people who think they can just show up, and stay.But hey, I’m all for flooding those blue states with illegal/illiterate people, and let the taxpayers of blue states pay for their own ridiculous policies.I could care less how angry they get. . .Suck it up princesses – this is what you voted for – this is what you support. . .time for you to suffer the consequences of your own policies. . .welcome to reality.

        This is where your disconnection with reality happens. This is not something that has just started. This has been the govt policy for years. They house people at specific locations around the country while they are processed and either deported or given assylum. Noone voted for this. Obama didnt start this. These people can not vote. They are not given citizenship. They are simply housed and feed to keep them from being on the street. Most will probably be deported after processing. You should learn to do some research and fact checking rather than simply believe anything posted on this thread. Somethings may be true but not all.

          It has been the law in past administrations that children cannot be turned away at the border, but it is THIS president who has encouraged people to take advantage of this law through his well known pro-amnesty ideology.

    2. Yeah, I’ll go with “not”. GTFO, propaganda p1mp.

    Uber wealthy liberals can afford to “isolate” themselves from the problems their philosophies cause. We need to ship 1,000s of them to:Kennebunkport, Maine
    Martha’s Vineyard
    the Hamptons
    Georgetown (DC)
    Beverly Hills
    Swanky Manhattan
    Tiburon, CA
    Stamford, CT
    Columbia University Area
    “North Shore” area, IllinoisShip thousands and thousands to those swanky uber wealthy areas. . . .with their limos and mansions and Bentleys. . . .Open the bus door and say “Everybody out! Your new home!” and drive away.Dump them by the thousands in all the liberals’ beautiful neighborhoods. . . .within a month you’d hear the liberals screaming to close the borders.

    1. Law Picks says:

      Believe it or not most people that own homes in these areas are conservatives who are super wealthy and dont even live there full time.

    Let’s see how this flies. We now have a tremendous problem with undocumented minors crossing into this country over the Mexican border. People in charge are reluctant to return them to their homes, since their country of origin may not be firmly established (undocumented, no paperwork or poor language skills) and it presumes a meanness. I would suggest separation from family is the ultimate cru…elty that should be corrected expeditiously. Mexico has not been heard from in this mass exodus, implying satisfaction with the status quo. All foreign embassies anywhere in the world are considered to be small islands belonging to that embassy’s country, and exempt from the host country’s laws. I fail to understand why someone crossing the Mexican border cannot be presumed to be a Mexican National, and deported by returning the lost individual to the nearest Mexican Embassy or Legation. Then those officials in the Embassy can harbor, house and disposition these children back to their places of origin. Works for me, how about your ideas?

    There are three basic ways in which Obama’s behavior exceeds that of any his predecessors.

    The first is that Obama is using executive orders and actions to alter his own legislation.
    It’s one thing to claim that you are forced to act because Congress
    will not. It’s quite another thing to re-write the law after Congress
    has done what you asked–and after you have offered, time and time
    again, to entertain formal amendments to the legislation. Obama has
    simply invoked executive authority to cover up his own errors. That’s
    unprecedented.

    The second way in which Obama’s abuse of executive power is different is that he has done it to prevent the
    legislature from acting. It is now widely acknowledged that the
    president issued his “Dream Act by fiat” in 2012 not just because
    Congress wouldn’t pass his version of immigration reform, but to
    outflank Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who was preparing his own version,
    embarrassing Obama among Latino voters. Such pettiness is rare.

    The third way in which Obama’s behavior is unusual is that he
    commands sweeping executive power on some issues while arguing, on other
    issues, that he has no power to act. The president’s recent speech
    about the NSA surveillance programs is a prime example of such
    self-contradiction. There is no constitutional doctrine behind the
    president’s executive orders, actions, and omissions: there is just
    pure, cynical political expediency.

    I find it sad that some of the comments people are making are filled with prejudice towards people that they don’t even know. Always complaining about not understanding their language yet not bothering to educate themselves either.
    I live in America, but I do not limit myself to being just an American. I am a human, as you all are, and my home is Earth. This planet is for EVERYONE.

    I am neither Republican nor Democrat. I don’t need a label. I don’t particularly care for any politician. This countries politicians as well as all other countries politicians are failing. They don’t take care of the people, nor do they give a **** about them.

    If you want to be angry then direct it at the screwed up system. Don’t be angry at a human being for wanting what they deserve, a better life.
