Illegal immigrants flown to Bay State: Sheriffs warn move may threaten safety
The Boston Herald ^ | July 13, 2014 | Owen Boss and Joe Dwinell

Posted on 07/13/2014 1:34:50 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Illegal immigrants are being secretly flown to Massachusetts and kept in local lockups in an under-the-radar operation that has alarmed lawmen who are raising health and security concerns amid recent spikes in detainees coming up from Texas during the latest border crisis.

“We’re all becoming border sheriffs now with these people being carted all over the country,” said Bristol County Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson.

“The blame goes all the way up. It’s a travesty and people ought to be upset,” Hodgson said. “This is un-American and has raised the stakes to the public health and public safety threat.”

Hodgson said buses from his facility were recently used to transport six planeloads of illegals sent up from San Antonio to Hanscom Field in Bedford en route to the Plymouth County 
Correctional Facility.

The sheriff said he’s also heard of 100 immigrant children recently arriving in his county. But he couldn’t say if they are part of the deluge of 50,000 unaccompanied kids crossing the nation’s southern border.

On the receiving end of the buses from Hodgson’s facility was Plymouth County Sheriff Joseph D. McDonald Jr., who said he’s seen a jump in illegal immigrants arriving at his jail and had to deal with “scenarios where we’ve had 100-plus detainees coming in at the same time.”

Hodgson called for sheriffs across the United States to “mobilize” on the red-hot immigration issue and confront the feds over their failure to communicate with local officials.

He said he’s heading to the Texas border Tuesday with other sheriffs from around the country to meet with ranchers and immigration officials to address the porous border crisis.

After weeks of denying an increase in flights to the Bay State, federal immigration officials finally admitted this weekend that four planes filled with detainees captured at the southern border have been flown to Hanscom and Logan International Airport since April as part of a “large-scale nationwide response” to the crisis.

Three other flights chartered by ICE since then have stopped in Massachusetts to pick up illegals and deport them, Daniel Modricker, an ICE spokesman said. A small percentage were granted asylum in Massachusetts, he added.

Modricker declined to comment on Hodgson’s report of other flights of illegals into Hanscom.

News of the covert flights comes as President Obama battles congressional Republicans over his request for nearly 
$4 billion to deal with the flood of kids as well as 30,000 illegal immigrants who crossed the border in recent weeks.

Syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin, who first reported the secret flights in June after hearing that two planeloads of detainees had quietly landed at Hanscom and Logan, said last night she wasn’t surprised when officials originally lined up to deny her story.

“This administration isn’t forthcoming about anything,” said Malkin, whose columns appear in the Herald. “This isn’t just a border crisis. It’s becoming a nationwide problem.”

Massachusetts citizens have long helped make the rest of the country suffer by their fanatical love of liberal policies. Maybe by flooding that liberal bastion with illegals it will be “pay back time!”

I’m thinking the gubmint is PRACTICING the logistics of moving people around.. PRACTICING for the REAL operation involving Americans, later. Who knows, most of the people involved in this nightmare (pilots, escorts, aides, etc.) are probably U.N. hacks or other foreign operatives. Such workers DON’T OPERATE UNDER OUR LAWS and would do whatever they’re told, legal or otherwise.

Should send some to Martha’s Vineyard so that the billionaires who want them here can enjoy them. House them in some mansions and at the country club.

Sending them to Plymouth County is sticking it to one of the more conservative counties in the state.

The criminal “children” will hang the HEADS of Law Enforcement Officers from the T (like Mexico),
and their mules will bring in every diseases known
and a few weaponized as well,
as Obama and Holder have planned.

I'm concerned this could backfire bigtime on Obama and any democrats supporting it. First of all it reminds me of what was done to the Japanese. Secondly, if deaths from desease begin to occur among the children it could become an even bigger problem for Obammy.

Any stories out these in the local Central American news of parents missing their children. 100% of these children were actually sent by their parents or are some of them victims of kidnappings?

Before we send them back to their homes we need to find out their planned destination and arrest those for child endangerment and abuse. Whoever these kids were planning to meet (parents or not) are not much better than the father who left his kid in the backseat to die.

Fly them home now and subtract the costs from the foreign aid we give to their home countries.

THIS is child abuse. Send them home where at least they are familiar with the culture, the language and the neighborhoods.

That would be a great idea if they leave when the millionaires leave.

Unfortunately that isn’t the case and the many people who work for or wait on the millionaires will be stuck with them.

Well, if they do send us to those camps (which is what I’m assuming you’re getting at) at least our lawns will be well manicured and the linens will be nice and clean.

And since the Hamptons are just a hop, skip and and jump across Long Island Sound, why not drop a planeload or five over there while they are at it.

The problem here in "Caliph"ornia is not so much the drought as it is our Commie politicians tearing down our dams and shutting off the water to our farms and orchards.

But, strangely enough, not to the golf courses. At least not the ones Ubama plays when he's here.

Thank you
I hope people in all the other states wake up.
It looks like that POS BO is sending a few hundred here and a few hundred there so people don’t notice.
This is not just Texas’ problem as most of the illegals getting “ detained ‘ now are not staying in Texas.
The question is can we the people actually do anything to stop this.

New 'Rat voters are coming in.

I would not support if they were new Tea Party voters. Wrong is wrong. It's true what you say but is not how we win the illegal immigration debate.

What McCain, Bush, Obama have been supporting is inhumane and that's how we win the debate. Legalized Slavery, that's what it is. Now with these kids... it's even worse and not something that any humane person could support. They need to be back home with their family (uncles, aunts, brothers, sisters).

Before they go back, get the names of the people they are suppose to meet up with on this side of the border and charge them with child endangerment (even if its the parent).

Politics aside, wrong is wrong and this is wrong.

Shame Obama and the dems for their support for inhumane activities. This is a war on latino youths if I've ever seen one.
