The Pentagon has confirmed to Tucker Carlson that they are using an Air Force base in Texas to fly illegal immigrants on passenger planes across the country to be 'resettled' in the U.S.
The transportation of migrants away from the border and inland on buses had been reported before, as had the flying of migrants from one border crossing to another for deportation, in what are termed 'lateral flights'.
The military airbase, Laughlin, was previously used by ICE in 2019, under Donald Trump, according to San Angelo Live.
'This show has confirmed that the Biden administration has enlisted the U.S. military to move illegal immigrants secretly around our country,' said Carlson on Wednesday night.
