PATCHOGUE, NY - Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1), member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, just issued the following statement in response to continued reports that the Biden Administration is secretly chartering flights full of migrants from the southern border to New York:

“There is a full blown crisis at our southern border that continues to get worse because of the Biden Administration’s disastrous leadership, policies and statements. Time and again, this Administration has failed to take meaningful action to secure our border and rein in this crisis. Now, it has come further to light that the Administration is secretly flying unaccompanied, underage migrants to New York in the middle of the night. The shadiness and lack of transparency from the Biden Administration is completely unacceptable. We have no concrete information about what sort of vetting these migrants have gone through, why they are being relocated, where they will stay, who was involved in this decision making process and so much more. Instead of conducting these covert flights and covering up these decisions from the public, the United States needs to start better securing our border, supporting our law enforcement agents working hard under increasingly difficult conditions, stopping the surge of illegal immigrants, drugs and other unknown dangers into the United States, and upholding our rule of law.”
