During a Fox News interview, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) responded to reports that the Biden administration was secretly flying planeloads of underage illegal immigrants into New York, saying that the Biden administration is attempting to hide the consequences of its “open border policy” by flying “in the dead of night.”

“The obvious reason why they’re flying these migrants across the country in the dead of night is that they don’t want to reveal the consequences of their open borders policy,” Cotton said. “So they’re trying to hide the consequences of that policy in the dark night.”

“This is the moral catastrophe of Joe Biden’s immigration policy,” Cotton said, adding, “They act like it’s some great moral victory when in reality it’s creating incentives for very dangerous and immoral behavior.”

Cotton’s explanation comes in response to a report from the New York Post, which claims to have witnessed two planes that “originated from Texas land at the Westchester County Airport, where most of the passengers who got off appeared to be children and teens, with a small portion appearing to be men in their 20s.”

“Planeloads of underage migrants are being flown secretly into suburban New York in an effort by President Biden’s administration to quietly resettle them across the region,” the New York Post reported. “The charter flights originate in Texas, where the ongoing border crisis has overwhelmed local immigration officials, and have been underway since at least August, according to sources familiar with the matter.”
