Fox News Channel personality Tucker Carlson has long been a critic of President Joe Biden’s approach to immigration.
This week, however, Carlson presented some new evidence that added a chilling new dimension to his criticism.
“You may see passenger aircraft”
During his broadcast on Wednesday evening, the host asserted that a whistleblower provided his show with a damning email from Air Force Lt. Col. Matthew Burrows. The document reportedly warned military personnel that undocumented immigrants would be arriving at Laughlin Air Force Base in Texas and advised them to keep the news quiet.
“Over the next few days, weeks, or months you may see passenger aircraft on our ramp transporting undocumented non-citizens,” the email reportedly stated.
According to the revelation this week, Burrows went on to explain: “In coordination with the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Del Rio Border Patrol will be using the Laughlin AFB runway to transport undocumented non-citizens via a Boeing 747.”
The email reportedly instructed military personnel to avoid taking photos or sharing information on social media.
“If anyone asks you about it, refer them to public affairs,” Burrows reportedly wrote.
“An impeachable offense”
As Carlson explained, Pentagon spokesperson Chris Mitchell “described the flights from Laughlin as non-citizen movements, part of what he called the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s mission.”
The Fox News host posed questions related to where the immigrants were taken after arriving at the military base.
“Into what communities were they placed?” Carlson asked. “How many federal dollars were spent doing this? Did the people into whose neighborhoods they were placed have any say in it at all?”
Of course, Carlson is not alone in criticizing Biden’s border and immigration policies. Former Trump administration senior adviser Stephen Miller appeared on the same show and asserted that the current administration’s actions amount to “an impeachable offense.”
Miller argued that when the president “put his hand on the Bible and swore an oath to take care of the laws we faithfully executed, to uphold, protect, and defend the Constitution, to ensure a republican form of government in every state, he has violated every single one of those commitments.”
