San Diego is expected to have one airplane full of illegal immigrants arrive every three days.
According to The Press-Enterprise, San Diego Sector Chief Paul Beeson told a town hall in Murrieta on Wednesday evening that “one airplane is scheduled to arrive in San Diego from Texas every 72 hours.”
“We will make decisions when they arrive where it makes the most sense to put them,” he said, according to the outlet.
When Breitbart Texas broke the story last month that illegal immigrants from Central America would be transferred from Texas to San Diego, the official Twitter account of the San Diego Border Patrol said Breitbart Texas Managing Director Brandon Darby’s report was “erroneous” and demanded that it be removed from the Internet. After the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) defended Darby’s report, the San Diego CBP deleted its original tweet, conceding that they were wrong.
After the federal government, following public outcry, canceled two flights that had been scheduled to transport illegal immigrants to San Diego, officials in San Diego warned that the federal government would transfer illegal immigrants to San Diego once people stopped paying attention. Less than a week after the cancellation, the federal government resumed the flights.
