Tennessee lawmakers have discovered The Biden Administration has been flying unaccompanied minors Into Tennessee under the cover of night, according to Fox News.
Biden’s administration is flying UACs into the airport in Chattanooga, TN.
From Chattanooga, the UACs are transported by bus to cities in the southeastern region of the U.S.
The GOP’s own Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee shared that illegal immigrants are being transported in “the dead of night without the knowledge or permission of the communities involved.”
Bill Hagerty says his stated residents deserve answers.
“I have warned for months that President Biden’s failure at the border would result in a systematic resettling of migrants in our communities, burdening our schools, hospitals, and law enforcement agencies, and bringing an increase in drug trafficking and human smuggling.”
“A new reality is happening in our country—every town is now a border town.”
Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee said, “The Biden Administration refuses to secure the border and is instead scattering unaccompanied kids all over the country with no regard for the consequences.”
“When we push back and demand answers, they cut off transparency and embolden one of the worst human trafficking crises we’ve seen at our border in the last 20 years.”
Blackburn said that Joe Biden is putting UAC’s and Tennessee residents at risk.
Blackburn stated that she also deserves answers from the Biden Administration.
The Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Health and Human Services did not respond to questions or requests for comment.
As recent as last week The HHS reported having custody of more than 20,000 Unaccompanied Alien Children.
From Fox News:
Lawmakers in the state are characterizing the situation as a symptom of the Biden administration’s policies and pursuant failure to control the flow of migrants at the border, which has now put their communities at risk.
Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee led roughly 20 other Republican governors in sending a letter to the Biden administration calling for action at the southern border, noting that the immigration crisis was spilling over into many U.S. states.
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said encounters at the border have declined to about 1,830 people per day but noted that a “fairly high” number of migrant children were still coming across.
