... Americans can now know the locations of 45 U.S. cities whose domestic airports have received flights carrying hundreds of thousands of inadmissible aliens the Biden administration authorized to fly over the border into the interior of the country but then determinedly fought to shield from public knowledge.

Those 45 cities where the receiving international airports are finally came to official light via the House Homeland Security Committee (albeit in regions the Center for Immigration Studies already identified following a year-long Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for the data). Last year, the committee demanded the same data from DHS in a letter similar to the Center’s contested FOIA request and which, after administration stonewalling, evolved into a subpoena. The committee released the information to Fox News on Tuesday.

The administration’s tightly guarded city airport locations confirm a Center for Immigration Studies report published on April 1, 2024, which disclosed that Florida airports by far led all other states in flight landings of 326,000 immigrants through March, distantly followed in still significant numbers by Texas, New York, and California...

...  the Biden administration authorized nearly 34,000 to fly directly to New York airports from abroad...

No Democratic mayor has yet to mention the flights.

But upon learning from the Center’s April 1 report that his state led the nation in immigrant flights, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and his top lieutenants have voiced their displeasure that Biden’s government kept the program hidden from them.

“It is a secret because . . . they don’t tell us anytime somebody comes in,” DeSantis complained during an April 4 press conference when asked about the Center’s report of a few days earlier. “They don’t give us any information on it. They are not coordinating with state government at all. If they throw six people on a commercial flight coming from a foreign country, there’s no acknowledgement at all to state or local authorities. That’s just a fact.”...

Begun in October 2022 for Venezuelans and expanded in January 2023 to Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Colombians, the program approves flight travel authorizations for aspiring illegal border-crossers still in other countries to instead arrange commercial airline passage for themselves over the southern border and then receive temporary but easily renewable “humanitarian parole” from CBP officers at the airport, with immediate eligibility for renewable work permits...

The top 15 cities migrants flew into during the eight-month window were:

  • Miami, Fla.: 91,821
  • Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.: 60,461
  • New York City, N.Y.: 14,827
  • Houston, Texas: 7,923
  • Orlando, Fla.: 6,043
  • Los Angeles, Calif.: 3,271
  • Tampa, Fla.: 3,237
  • Dallas, Texas: 2,256
  • San Francisco, Calif.: 2,052
  • Atlanta, Ga.: 1,796
  • Newark, N.J.: 1,498
  • Washington, D.C.: 1,472
  • Chicago, Ill.: 496
  • Las Vegas, Nev.: 483
  • Austin, Texas: 171

... The other airports used for the program are located in: Aruba; Baltimore, Md.; Boston; Mass.; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, Virgin Islands; Cincinnati, Ohio; Columbus, Ohio; Charlotte, N.C.; Dublin, Ireland; Denver, Colo.; Detroit, Mich.; Fresno, Calif.; Fort Myers, Fla.; Honolulu, Hawaii; Indianapolis, Ind.; Kansas City, Mo.; Montreal, Quebec, Canada; Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minn.; Nassau, Bahamas; New Orleans, La.; Oakdale, La.; Ottawa, Canada; Philadelphia, Pa.; Phoenix, Ariz.; Portland, Ore.; Pittsburgh, Pa.; Providence, R.I.; Raleigh-Durham, N.C.; Sacramento, Calif.; San Juan, P.R.; Savannah, Ga.; San Antonio, Texas; San Diego, Calif.; Seattle, Wash.; Salt Lake City, Utah; San Jose, Calif.; St. Paul, Minn.; St. Louis, Mo.; Toronto, Ontario, Canada; Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada...
