Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) reached out to Tucker Carlson during his Wednesday night broadcast to confirm his report that the US military has been moving illegal immigrants secretly around the country.
At the top of the hour, Carlson reported that "the Biden administration has enlisted the US military to move illegal immigrants secretly around our country. That is happening at Laughlin Air Force base in Texas."
He said that Lt. Col. Matthew Burrows explained all this to subordinates, and instructed them not to say anything about it. The email, Carlson revealed, reads "Over the next few days, weeks or months, you may see passenger aircraft on our ramp transporting undocumented non-citizens."
The email instructed people to "not take photographs," and to "refrain from posting anything on social media." No national security justification was offered, Carlson said, noting that there really isn't one. "He just told the people who work for him not to talk."
This information came via a whistleblower who reached out to the show. "During the last administration... the Pentagon firmly refused to protect America's southern border," Carlson said, noting that they claimed it was "too political." Only now, they are directly helping the Biden administration with their open border plans and policies.
"According to this document, here was the very same US military leadership at the Pentagon helping the Biden administration with maximum enforced stealth, with secrecy, to subvert this country's core immigration laws," Carlson said.
"It was hard to believe that could be happening, but it is happening." It has been confirmed by the Pentagon, who instructed the Tucker Carlson team to reach out to ICE. They did that. And later in the episode, these reports were confirmed by that agency.
"ICE," he said, "did not deny they were using Laughlin Air Force base to relocate large numbers of foreign nationals into the interior of our country and do it secretly."
But where are "all these people going?" He asked. ICE did not answer that question. However, illegal migrants have been shipped across the country. The Biden administration has made many allowances and exceptions for illegal immigrants who want to enter the country. Unaccompanied minors are accepted without question, as as women who were recently pregnant, pregnant, or nursing. Families are accepted, as are those seeking asylum as they await a hearing of their case.
Toward the end of the show, Carlson broke in with an alert to report that ICE had reached out to answer questions, and confirmed his reporting. "We've just received, during the show, a statement from ICE confirming what we've reported. There have been flights of illegal immigrants, foreign nationals, from Laughlin Air Force Base to other locations within the United States," Carlson said.
A "memorandum of agreement" was signed in June between DHS and DOD. It was "pursuant to the MOA" that ICE began making these flights. "Since June 29, approximately 780 non-citizens, here illegally, were transferred via ICE air on 6 ICE air flights departing from the military installation," Carlson quoted ICE's statement.
ICE praised the collaboration between federal agencies that allowed them to "transfer non-citizens safely and humanely between ICE field offices where the appropriate level of custody and supervision will be determined."
Carlson was left with still more questions, such as what other military resources are being used to deal with non-citizens being moved secretly around the country? And "where are these people going?"
This is all being done without congressional oversight. "Whose country is this? Who is in charge?" He called on Republicans in Congress to figure out what is going on.
