A Texas lawmaker has uncovered a secret operation that moves migrants across the United States. Among the locations the migrants are being left in are “abandoned hotels” reports Fox News. Additionally, migrants were reportedly given packets of information on how to get past TSA and enroll children in schools.
Speaking to “Fox & Friends” Monday morning, Representative Lance Gooden (R-TX) announced he had uncovered the secret operation being run by nonprofits from a whistleblower from San Diego who contacted him with the details.
Once Gooden was approached by the whistleblower, he flew to San Diego “and discovered that abandoned hotels in the California city were being utilized as shelters for the migrants. Some of the locations he mentioned included SeaWorld, The Four Points by Sheraton and a Ramada Inn.”
Gooden told Fox News, “I managed to get in the gates, I demanded entry once and was refused. I talked a guard into letting me in on another occasion and when I was in there I saw busses pulling up, probably about 100 migrants over an hour got off of these busses.”
Gooden said that upon arrival the migrants were “welcomed by people with open arms” before being processed, tested for COVID and then handed information packets.
“This packet is what I received from the whistleblower a few weeks ago,” said Gooden. “And these packets detail how to go to the airport, how to get past TSA without any identification, how to enroll your children in schools and assimilate in whatever community you desire to go in.”
Gooden also said he spoke to TSA about the packets and was informed that migrants sometimes show up with “very convincing letters” and in some cases are let on the airplane before anyone else. One armed security officer reportedly told Gooden that migrants are often already on the plane when he boards early to tell the pilot of his presence.

AZ Rancher Has 2,400% Increase of Illegal Immigrants on Property
A private property owner and rancher in Arizona is providing better insight into what is happening on the border with his own personal experience than the Biden administration. John Ladd’s ranch shares 10.5 miles of Mexico’s border. By 2019 he had an average of 12 illegal aliens crossing his land daily. He says Border Patrol was able to apprehend roughly half of them.
Ladd says unambiguously, the number of crossings rose right around the time Biden won the 2020 presidential election. And today, Ladd says about 300 individuals cross into his property, which sits between the US-Mexico border and Highway 92; a convenient route for smuggling.
The Border Patrol is only able to catch roughly 30 percent of the illegal immigrants, drug smugglers and human traffickers, on a “good day.”
Ladd told the Epoch Times in an interview in December, “I’m not going to say there’s no hope, but nothing is going to change as long as Biden is there and his administration is there…And what are we going to do? Let them pass?”
“These people cannot turn themselves in, they will be deported. These are the bad people. We’re dealing with the worst of the worst,” Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels said of those who cross in and near Ladd’s property.
The illegal immigrants coming through Ladd’s ranch aren’t seeking asylum: They’re mostly single young men dressed head-to-toe in camouflage and doing their best to avoid police forces and make it to Phoenix.
The Epoch Times reports:
Dannels’ border team has placed hundreds of trail cameras throughout the county since 2017 to detect illegal aliens, traffickers and smugglers.
“We put our cameras in areas where Border Patrol didn’t go,” he said. “We went to the river areas, we went into the mountainous areas, we went to the desert areas,” he said. The money for the cameras came from private donations—Dannels refuses to accept government money that comes with strings attached.

The drugs keep coming, but the cartels are making endless amounts of money smuggling people, so they’ve added a lucrative new source of revenue.
Currently, Dannels’ cameras are detecting about 6,000 illegal aliens a month in the county, while the Border Patrol detects another 10,000.
Detective Jake Kartchner, who is part of the sheriff’s border team led by Sergeant Tim Williams, said each illegal alien must pay the Sinaloa cartel between $7,000 and $9,000 on average to cross the border.
