US Rep. Dan Meuser (PA-9), who represents Schuylkill County in Congress, addressed the issue of so-called “ghost flights” on a recent appearance on Fox News.
“This message is very important. The American people need to know the details of the tragic situation the Biden administration has created,” Meuser says.
These “ghost flights” allegedly carry illegal immigrants presumably being held at detainment facilities near the US-Mexico border have been arriving at airports in several US states.
Meuser says he was informed by airport employees that some of these ghost flights have arrived at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport in Avoca. The last of the flights apparently happened on Christmas night.
“If they’re so proud of how they handle the border and how they’re handling children in such a compassionate way, why isn’t Jen Psaki and others talking about it? Riddle me that,” Meuser says, appearing from Palm Beach, FL, where he’s clearly working on his tan. “We have flights coming into Wilkes-Barre in the middle of the night, just as that occurred in Florida and other places. There were two flights that came in on Christmas evening.”
In a previous report, it was confirmed these flights often contain unaccompanied minors.
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf finally addressed this issue late last year but said that the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton airport wasn’t the flight’s final destination, merely a “transfer” point, as if that makes it any better.
Meuser wonders if politics is behind the migrant flights ending up in states like Pennsylvania and Florida.
“That gets to the end game here,” he says. “Why such an upside down, backwards, senseless, illogical policy would be in effect now for the last 11 months that is a disaster for all, for the American people and the poor people who are part of this.”
Meuser believes drug cartels are responsible for bringing people across the border, including the unaccompanied minors.
He says he’s sent a letter to the Health and Human Services Dept. asking for transparency regarding this policy and ghost flights.
