Lyng: Illegal Aliens Getting Free Flights While Fares Soar for U.S. Customers

When former President Obama curtailed immigration law enforcement during his eight-year reign, an emboldened illegal invasion across our southern border took hold and continues today.

Coupled with the Deep State, a massive media fake-news campaign, and with seemingly unlimited funding of leftist open borders organizations, America is clearly under attack not only from the south but from within our once admired institutions.

Recently, the invasion has picked up new momentum and, as usual, it appears to come with a steep price tag for our U.S. families. While millions of Americans must save all year to afford airfares and accommodations for their summer vacations, major corporations and open-borders non-profits are funding illegal aliens’ flights. United Airlines is offering free flights for illegal alien families to anywhere in the United States. Which begs the question, “When have you, the reader, been offered free plane tickets, hotel stays, and free meals by any of these multi-billion dollar corporations?”

Never, I would guess.

But the list of members of the pro-illegal alien cabal is large. FWD.US, backed by technology leaders including Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and Dropbox founder Drew Houston, are among the billionaire CEOs who are sacrificing shareholders’ profits to aid and abet illegals. Committed leftists, they will presumably shell out whatever it takes to shuffle illegal trespassers across our fruited plains and beyond.

But here is the twist: just one month ago, in direct defiance of President Trump’s “zero-tolerance” enforcement for illegal border-crossers, United asked the federal government not to use their aircraft to transport children that were being separated from their parents. As soon as the President rescinded his mandate for his common-sense separation, United jumped at the chance to fly these illegals to anywhere in the U.S., making their retrieval much more difficult.

Buoyed by the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Service (RAICES) and other advocacy groups, Bloomberg reported that FWD.US “plans to fly 600 to 1,000 reunited families for free on United flights through August 4, and longer if necessary.”

It may sound like a bad joke, but it is more than that. U.S. air travelers are forced to pay for more expensive tickets, better seats, and baggage fees, all while airline profits soared to over $38 billion in 2018 alone.

However, other Americans feel the sting in a much more personal, devastating way: the killings of their loved ones by illegal aliens.

For decades, Americans have been victimized by so-called “immigrants” who have invaded America in total disregard of U.S. law. The major airlines, while tripping over themselves to help “connect the world” of invading foreign nationals, disregard for the indisputable fact that significant crime is store for Americans, in part due to their latest public relations ploy. Looking at recent Texas crimes by illegals helps us understand the magnitude of this problem.

The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) recently reported 251,000 criminal aliens were booked in local Texas jails between June 1, 2011 and April 30, 2018, according to DHS status indicators. These criminal aliens were charged with more than 663,000 criminal offenses, of which 1,351 were homicides, 7,156 sexual assaults, 79,049 assaults, along with nearly 80,000 drug-related arrests, and thousands more personal property crimes. Needless to say, the most egregious crimes were perpetrated upon Americans through no fault of their own. And since, in almost all cases, these victims never thought that they would be victimized this way, one must wonder, “Which of us will be next?”

American corporations’ willingness to subsidize illegal aliens at the expense of American families for the praises of billionaires, tech tycoons, and agenda-driven fake-news media reporters is troubling, to say the say the least. More troubling, however, is the lack of understanding that the non-enforcement of immigration law has very real consequences to Americans who have been promised protections under the U.S. Constitution.

Airlines like United benefit from laws like the Fly America Act, which forces government employees to fly their airlines. If United or any other carrier refuses to help the brave men and women of DHS enforce our laws, then it’s time to take a stand for our immigration laws and do away with the Fly America Act altogether.

The American people have sent a clear message to their government: they want their borders enforced and protected and President Trump’s America First agenda fully funded and implemented. Too bad so many corporations refuse to heed the voters’ call. It is time for them and their enabling executives to pay the price.
