The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport in Pennsylvania has been reported as the latest location to receive concerning nighttime flights transporting illegal immigrants from the nation’s southern border.
“Fox News Primetime” host Lawrence Jones shared images from former Rep. Lou Barletta on Dec. 25 that showed flights appearing at the airport from El Paso, Texas.

Not the First Time
The late night flights from Texas filled with illegal immigrants have been reported in other cities as well. In Florida, Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis addressed similar flights arriving in Jacksonville.
Other flights were reported in New York state and in Chattanooga, Tennessee, with immigrants picked up by charter buses and moved to other locations.
“I think it’s quite obvious they don’t want the American people to see what they are doing, which is interesting to me because they don’t seem to care that our border is wide open,” Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren told Jones on “Fox News Primetime.”
“I am extremely concerned by recent reports that the federal government has flown illegal immigrants to the Wilkes Barre-Scranton International Airport…
“It is my understanding that a total of 130 immigrants, 118 minors and 12 adults, arrived aboard an iAero charter flight on Friday, December 17 and were subsequently transported on buses from a private hangar,” Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Dan Meuser wrote.

“James Gallagher, president of Aviation Technologies, which is based at the airport, confirmed the four flights arrived — Dec. 11, Dec. 17 and two on Dec. 25 — and he said a fifth flight is scheduled to arrive Dec. 30 at 5 p.m. Gallagher said at least two of the flights were diverted to AVP from other airports,” The Times Leader said.

The news doesn’t look good for the Biden administration’s claims to be more transparent with the American people as he nears the end of his first year in office.
