The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) secretly carried out multiple chartered flights transporting illegal immigrants to Scranton, Pa. in the middle of the night throughout December. The receiving airport said the federal government threatened to pull its funding to the airport if it attempted to block the flights.
Rep. Dan Meuser told the Times Leader on Wednesday the HHS confirmed to him it had organized the flights of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children, which it said was necessitated by the migrant surge at the US-Mexico border.
Four illegal immigrant flights to the Wilkes-Barre Scranton International Airport took place on Dec. 11, 17 and 25. Three additional flights are scheduled for Dec. 30, Dec. 31, and Jan. 1.
