Despite released video, White House says ‘no such thing as secret flights’

The White House is saying there is ‘no such thing as secret flights’ about bodycam footage showing, well, secret flights. Through a Freedom of Information Act request (FOIA) by former Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, footage was obtained showing migrants being transported on charter flights in the middle of the night.

The story first unfolded in October when the New York Post captured video of the charters at the airport in White Plains, New York. The flights arrived from areas near the southern border such as McAllen, Texas and Houston, Texas.

The flights “only stopped after the outlet captured footage of the landings in October” reports Fox News. The White House, however, claims not only that it’s “not news” but also that the “not news” is “not new.”

“There are no such things as secret flights” a White House official responded to Fox News’ White House correspondent Peter Doocy. “The video footage your network has been running endlessly is from six months ago in August. Which by the way, Jen [Psaki] and others in the administration addressed this then too, Not new or news.”

The White House claimed “the footage is of unaccompanied minors being transported…either to a vetted relative or [to] a sponsor, and yes they passed through Westchester County, New York men route to their final destination.”

On the recorded footage released from an officer’s body camera on the tarmac of the Westchester airport on August 13, 2021, a federal contractor can be heard saying, “the government is betraying the American people.”

In the 51-minutes of footage, Westchester Police Sgt. Michael Hamborsky is “peppering federal contractors early in the morning with questions about the after-hours flights and why local police were not provided details” reports Fox News.

“You’re on a secure facility here; we really don’t know anything and we’re in charge of security…this is anti all our security stuff” Hamborsky tells a contractor.

    Is there anything that the Whitehouse administration and President Biden can say that is the truth? As they continue to destroy this country why is nothing being done to stop it? Impeach Biden, Harris and Pelosi at the same time so that we can have our country back.

    Their “Take” on this is the same as when they’re caught with the Proverbial “HAND IN COOKIE JAR” DENY, DENY, DENY,! Somebody will believe their LIES! Someone has to do something about this Reckless Release of Illegal Immigrants into America under their own recognizance carrying their own “ARREST WARRANTS” which they are using as Identification at TSA Inspections in order to fly! America is at Stake here and Elected Officials Must do something to bring it back on Course

    WHY would they deny it when their is so much evidence that it is happening?? This is another big chunk out of their credibility. I don’t think there is very much left.

Report: Denver area migrants cost $340 million to shelter, educate

Published

A report by the free-market Common Sense Institute found the more than 42,000 migrants who have arrived in Denver over the last year and a half have cost the region as much as $340 million. The city of Denver, local school districts, and the region’s health-care system have spent between $216 million and $340 million combined to shelter, feed, clothe, and educate the migrants, and to provide them with emergency medical care.

National Review explains the report builds off a previous report from March that conservatively found that the migrants had cost the region at least $170 million. “Costs are never localized,” said DJ Summers, the institute’s research director. “They expand outward.”

Democratic leaders are being blamed for their welcoming posture toward immigrants generally, and their sanctuary-city policies, which curtail law enforcement’s ability to cooperate with federal immigration agents. Since late December 2022, at least 42,269 migrants — or “newcomers” as Denver leaders call them — have arrived in the city, adds National Review.

The Common Sense Institute report found that the migrant crisis has also hit local emergency rooms hard with extensive expenses. Since December 2022, migrants have made more than 16,000 visits to metro emergency departments. At an estimated cost of about $3,000 per visit, that has resulted in nearly $48 million in uncompensated care.

Summers said those costs are “stressing existing health care organizations,” but they also indirectly hit residents in their pocketbooks through increased insurance prices.

Metro school districts have endured the biggest financial hit — estimated between $98 million and $222 million — according to the Common Sense Institute report. The large range in costs is due to the difficulties researchers had identifying exactly how many new foreign students are tied to the migrant crisis.

The researchers found that since December 2022, 15,725 foreign students have enrolled in local schools. Of those, 6,929 have come from the five countries most closely identified with the migrant crisis — Venezuela, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

On average, it costs a little over $14,000 to educate a student for a year in a Denver-area public school, but Summers said migrant students likely cost more.

“They have transportation needs that are different, they have acculturation needs that are going to be different, language assistance needs that are going to be different,” he said. “Many of them might need to get up to speed in curriculum. They might need outside tutoring.”

Earlier this year, Colorado lawmakers approved $24 million in state funding to help school districts statewide plug budget holes related to the migrant students.

Summers said the updated Common Sense Institute tally is likely still missing some costs related to the ongoing migrant crisis.

“There are definitely additional costs. We just don’t have a great way to measure them just yet,” he said, noting legal fees, crime, and unreported business and nonprofit expenses.
