Outrage erupted on a Frontier Airlines flight Sunday after an Orthodox Jewish family was removed from the flight over allegations that their 18-month-old child was not wearing a face mask, the family and eyewitnesses said.

Video footage captured by another passenger shows the family being removed from Frontier flight F9-2878 after explaining that the child was under two years of age.

Frontier Airlines has since been accused of antisemitism.

“You’re going to pay the consequences,” the passenger recording the video is heard saying to the Frontier workers. “This going all over the news, you’re all going to suffer the consequences.”

“This is Nazi Germany,” another passenger yells.

The flight, which was preparing for departure from Miami to LaGuardia, was later canceled and passengers were asked to deplane and the flight was rescheduled for the next morning.

Frontier Airlines has denied the allegations claiming that “members of a large group, including adults, refused to wear masks” and that “the issue did not stem from a child under 2.”

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

Joe Biden

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
