Skip to comments.Illegal immigrants flown to Bay State: Sheriffs warn move may threaten safety
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.
Were 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. Its 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 hes also heard of 100 immigrant children recently arriving in his county. But he couldnt say if they are part of the deluge of 50,000 unaccompanied kids crossing the nations southern border.
On the receiving end of the buses from Hodgsons facility was Plymouth County Sheriff Joseph D. McDonald Jr., who said hes seen a jump in illegal immigrants arriving at his jail and had to deal with scenarios where weve 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 hes 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 Hodgsons 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 wasnt surprised when officials originally lined up to deny her story.
This administration isnt forthcoming about anything, said Malkin, whose columns appear in the Herald. This isnt just a border crisis. Its becoming a nationwide problem.
Is anybody else concerned with all these interment camps that are popping up all over The U.S.?
Go back to sleep, citizen.
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.
Spread the pain enough and you’ll never notice it...
Yeah right! DHS, ICE and the White House are pushing and pushing hard. I don’t think any of us are going to like it when they reach their end-goal.
If Hodgson is concerned, why did he allow buses from his facility to be used? Who is in charge?

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.
Maybe they could put them up in Plymouth town.
How fitting.. And a lot of the old buildings are winterized.. Soooo..
Notice they are saving space in certain other camps?
Don’t we now our gay tin foil..falala lala LA LA LA laaaa
Don. Not Don’t .. Dam spillchicker..
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.
“Should send some to Marthas Vineyard so that the billionaires who want them here can enjoy them”
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.
Chicago greets the new MS-13 rookies!
‘why did he allow buses from his facility to be used? “
I missed that part in the article. did it say the sheriff sent buses to take the illegals?
Exactly. They are allowing it then bitching.
Not if they’re in Kaliforniyaaa,, drought and all
If ya get one shower a month, ya’ll be lucky..
Like most libs would notice the difference,,nhaaa.
“Should send some to Marthas Vineyard so that the billionaires who want them here can enjoy them.”
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.
But, strangely enough, not to the golf courses. At least not the ones Ubama plays when he's here.
I guess their older undocumented workers are too old to wash the car, clean the house, and perform those other jobs no one else wants to do....these are the replacements evidently.
There, fixed it.
Send them to Chappysquiddick!
Will someone please wake up the f##kers who are suppose to be representing us
WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU DAMN PEOPLE!!
The Bay State is where they belong, where liberal compassion runs a mile deep in every nook and cranny.
See excerpt below:
"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
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.
But...., you have to do the bidding of those who provide you with MRAPs and other toys for free!!!
Around here the Sheriff runs the jail. He’d be well within his authority to say “no” loudly and often.
Old white "bitter clingers" will use the same process in reverse, heading to a one-way "resort" in the SW deserts.
Think I'm joking?
What’s done is done. Obama ramped up this conspiracy. No one will be deported.
The only thing which can be done is if some governor has the balls to do it.
Blame the Commie pink fag that occupies the WH.
If they’re spending all that money and effort to transport illegals, why not transport them DEEP into Mexico—to Veracruz for example?
Their seeding the country....Been going on for decades now...
“I guess their older undocumented workers are too old to wash the car, clean the house, and perform those other jobs no one else wants to do....these are the replacements evidently.”
Just wait until these “children” apply to bring their parents here to live with them.
I just hope that the welfare load breaks Massoftwoshits. It will serve them right.
>>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. <<
So? I hope this explodes in Obama’s face and blows his ass out of the WH!
I don’t see Obama leaving the WH in 2016 unless Michelle O is the next President. He’ll use his “pen and phone” if i takes that to remain in the WH.
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.
And just what do you expect the American public to do when he say, “I am now your dictator and I am not leaving 1600?”
Probably threaten to "sue him".
No, the people aren’t elected legislators. I expect they’ll kill him.
