Border Crossers Flying for Free into U.S. with Help from Catholic Charities


report by the Daily Mail reveals the extent to which non-governmental organizations (NGOs) — such as Catholic Charities of San Diego, California; the Shapiro Foundation, and the Tripadvisor Foundation — are facilitating the release of border crossers into the U.S. interior, thanks to  President Joe Biden’s administration and often funded by American taxpayers.

In southern California, for instance, Biden officials and the state have worked out an operation that places border crossers into free hotel rooms at $71 to $90 a night. A similar scheme in Arizona and Texas — costing $86 million in total — is costing taxpayers about $72,000 per border crosser.

The southern California operation first provides the free hotel rooms to border crossers who stay for sometimes less than 48 hours before Catholic Charities puts them on commercial flights, for free, into the U.S. interior. The migrants, as the Daily Mail reports, are often headed to Los Angeles, California; New York City, New York; and Boston, Massachusetts.

Every day, according to Catholic Charities, border crossers are taken on buses to Yuma, Arizona, and San Diego airports.
