ALL Senate Dems Vote Against Stopping Biden Administration’s Charter Flights for Illegal Aliens

The United States Senate on Friday evening voted against amendments that would effectively stop the Biden administration’s secret program to charter illegal aliens into the United States.

Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN) spoke out on the Senate floor to advocate for his amendment to thwart the Biden administration’s importation of unauthorized migrants.

“In order to consider my very simple and reasonable amendment, it’s vital that the Senate must move the Democrat leaders blocking amendment out of the way in order to move forward with my amendment,” the senator said.

“Let me cut through the procedural language here,” he continued. “I’m bringing forward a vote on a very simple question: Do you support American taxpayer dollars being used to fly illegal immigrants from countries like Venezuela and Haiti into America to be settled in cities and towns near you? If so, then vote against me.”

“Vote ‘no’ to preserve this practice of using taxpayer dollars to charter planes that move and import thousands of illegal aliens into your states,” he added. “Make no mistake here, president Biden has been secretly flying hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens from foreign countries into Blue City airports. Just last year alone in 2023, it was reported that some 320,000 illegal aliens had been flown in using this method.”

The text for the proposed amendment is as follows:

“No funds appropriated by this Act may be used to facilitate, provide, or purchase air transportation from a foreign country to the United States for an alien in order for such alien to utilize a parole process described in–
(1) the notice of the Department of Homeland Security entitled “Implementation of a Parole Process for Venezuelans” (87 Fed. Reg. 63507 (October 19, 2022));
(2) the notice of the Department of Homeland Security entitled “Implementation of a Parole Process for Haitians” (88 Fed. Reg. 1243 (January 9, 2023));
(3) the notice of the Department of Homeland Security entitled “Implementation of a Parole Process for Nicaraguans” (88 Fed. Reg. 1255 (January 9, 2023)); or
(4) the notice of the Department of Homeland Security entitled “Implementation of a Parole Process for Cubans” (88 Fed. Reg. 1266 (January 9, 2023)).
(b) The limitation described in subsection (a) shall not apply in exigent circumstances in which an individual is being–
(1) provided emergency medical treatment; or
(2) brought to the United States for necessary law enforcement purposes.

However, the amendment was defeated in the Senate when every Democrat voted against it.

“Tonight every single Senate Democrat voted against my amendment that would stop Biden Admin from using taxpayer dollars to charter flights for hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens from their countries directly to American towns to be resettled,” Hagerty said. “Indefensible.”

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) added his support for another amendment, as he mentioned on X.

“Americans have to show a photo ID when boarding an airplane,” the senator said. “But illegal aliens don’t. My amendment would change that.”

“Senator Patty Murray just spoke against it, pointing out that making illegal aliens show photo ID ‘would cause long lines at airports’,” he added. “Can’t make this up.”

In January, Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) sent a letter to Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Administrator David Pekoske and called out the agency for allowing illegal immigrants to board commercial flights without valid photo identification.

“If this report is accurate, this is outrageous,” wrote Senator Hawley. “Millions of Americans are subject to the TSA screening process, which is often a burdensome, long inconvenience—and which includes photo identification. But every day, Americans take on this burden to increase the safety of their fellow passengers.”

He continued, “Therefore, it makes no sense to give special privileges to illegal immigrants, who should not even be allowed in the United States in the first place, let alone allowed to board U.S. aircraft. This is symbolic of the Biden Administration’s prioritization of open border policies over Americans’ safety.”

This is a battle that continues from 2022, when United States Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN) joined Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and eight other colleagues in introducing the Strengthening Enforcement to Curtail Unlawful, Risky Entrance to Flights Act, or SECURE Flights Act.

The Act would prevent the TSA from allowing illegal aliens to use immigration enforcement documents, such as arrest warrants, as identification when boarding commercial flights.

The Biden regime has acknowledged a secretive program to import ‘unauthorized’ migrants into the U.S.. Immigration attorneys defended the secrecy of this program by arguing that disclosing the locations of these flights may cause national security “vulnerabilities.”

“Customs and Border Protection has refused to disclose information about a program last year secretly chartering flights for thousands of undocumented immigrants from foreign airports directly to U.S. cities,” the Mail reported.

“It means that while record numbers of migrants were flowing over the southern border last year, the Biden White House was also directly transporting them into the country,” the report added.

The use of the CBP One app enabled the nearly unnoticed entry by air of 320,000 foreigners with no legal permission to enter the United States.

Polling firm Rasmussen Reports noted that most Americans disapprove of the Biden administration policy.

“60% of voters disapprove of these flights, 46% strongly,” the pollster remarked. “25% approve, 10% strongly.”

Initiated in secret, it is TREASON to import illegal aliens into America using Tax dollars!
How can any other inference be made? The Communist Infiltrators in our Guvmint are BUILDING AN ARMY to oppose the American people! Thus far, IN SECRET!
This is no Big Hearted humanitarian plan! It’s laying the groundwork for our destruction.
There is no pro-American justification for the INVASION! None.
