Thousands of Americans and their Afghan allies abandoned by the Biden Administration are stranded in a medieval country hunted by fanatical Taliban killers while thousands of illegal aliens in America are being provided plane tickets and luxury buses to be transported around the country at taxpayer expense.
Detailed information and photos leaked out of the Jacksonville Florida International Airport (JAX) show chartered planes packed with hundreds of illegals arriving in the early morning hours on a daily basis. The occupants of these flights are met by luxury busses that transport them to destinations in Atlanta, Nashville, and New Jersey.
Fourth District Congressman John Rutherford (R-FL) told me during a phone conversation Wednesday, August 25, that despite the fact that he and other Republicans are working to stem the flow of illegals and secure the border, hundreds of thousands are getting across and being shuttled around the country in luxury by the Biden administration.
So far he said Biden’s Health and Human Services (HHS) function has routed 1,200 of these folks through the Jacksonville Airport, most from Mexico. “Many unaccompanied children are staying in the Jacksonville area and being cared for by local charities,” said the Congressman.
Democrats, he says, are thwarting his and other Republican efforts to plug what the Democrats have left standing of the porous southern border.
Rutherford illustrated the damage being done by the Democrats exclaiming: “They cut $960 million from the Customs and Border Patrol budget right in the middle of all this. We can’t stop them as long as they’re in the majority.”
When it was suggested that when the Taliban, Al Qaida, ISIS, etc. look at the leaky U.S. southern border they see a way in to attack the U.S. The Congressman agreed saying, “We have identified people from 150 different countries coming across our southern border.”
The Congressman said that more than 1.2 million people have come across the border since the first of the year, 212,000 in July alone. “The good news is that some 865,000 have been sent back because Title 42 is still being enforced but 466,000 stayed. The bad news,” he says, “is those are just the ones we caught.”
The Biden welcome mat embraces them all: drug smugglers, terrorists, Covid infected, human traffickers, rapists, pedophiles, murderers, who cares. Oh, and here’s your voter registration card already filled out for you. America’s back door is wide open to what Emma Lazarus’s Statue of Liberty poem asks for: “The wretched refuse of your teeming shore, send these…” And here they are, smack in our backyard.
My airport source says the immigrant flood there has been taking place for weeks, with planes discharging their illegal passengers onto waiting buses that are escorted by Jacksonville Aviation police cars.
Flights taxi to a remote section of the airport called Air Cargo 4, far from the passenger terminal and public view. It’s a gate used by NFL teams because of its remote location and easy access to Interstate 95. It’s also used exclusively by FedEx and other cargo carriers.
I watched from my car for more than two hours the other night along with columnist Steve Nicklaus of the local Fernandina Beach News Leader, as cargo planes taxied in and unloaded. There are no customs checkpoints, passenger lounges, or TSA agents, only freight handling facilities. Vehicles enter and exit the runway via a gate in a chain-link fence, with signs that warn unauthorized folks to stay out.
More than five hours after we left the airport Tuesday, an Avelo Boeing 737 arrived at 2:33 a.m. and 20-30 people deplaned and boarded two waiting buses from a Tallahassee company called Mike’s Limousine. My airport source says the flight number was VXP8401 and it originated in Houston.
The individual that provided us with the photos and alerted us to this situation with detailed information, is a veteran airport professional who reports that he witnesses this activity on a nightly basis.
He said that the ground handlers at the airport that meet the planes are paid three times the amount they normally receive because the government only gives them 3-4 hours advance notice before the flights arrive. “There’s not much work to be done,” he says, “because there is no luggage.”
The photo here shows people that deplaned boarding a bus Wednesday morning, August 25. It was taken from the Air Cargo 4 FedEx ramp. The only thing missing was a Mariachi band and a taco stand to welcome them.
I called Mike’s Limousine Service in Tallahassee and asked where the buses were taking these passengers. Someone named Ted said he couldn’t give me any information about the buses because I wasn’t the person who ordered them and abruptly hung up. The JAX Airport’s Public Affairs office politely suggested that I contact Customs & Border Protection officials with questions about the flights.
While in the middle of his Afghanistan debacle, will an oblivious and detached Joe Biden repeat his Sunday, August 22 warning similar to the one he told Tropical Storm Henri victims by saying to his Biden Express passengers: “Don’t forget that you may need to seek shelter while we’re still battling COVID-19 and the Delta variant,” he said. “So, wear a mask and try to observe social distancing.” He may want to add: “Have a pleasant flight and thanks for flying Air Biden.”
Democrats have a nasty track record of abandoning oppressed people and rewarding the oppressors. The current scenario reeks of what they did during World War II when they turned away ships loaded with German Jews fleeing the Nazis who were later murdered in concentration camps. FDR knew about the camps and didn’t destroy the railway system that was taking innocents to their deaths. After the war, his Democrat successor, Harry Truman, then snatched as many Nazi bomb and rocket makers as he could find to come and work in the U.S. exonerating them of any war crimes.
Democrats haven’t changed.
