A House Republican, tipped off by a San Diego whistleblower, has seen documents from nonprofits in California which outline secret operations to reposition illegal border crossing migrants into the United States.
The nonprofits are providing illegals with documents and means to navigate their migration into the United States, Rep. Lance Gooden, R-Texas, told Fox News.
Abandoned hotels in San Diego were being used as migrant shelters, including The Four Points by Sheraton, and a Ramada Inn, Gooden told Monday's "Fox & Friends."
"I managed to get in the gates, I demanded entry once and was refused," Gooden said. "I talked a guard into letting me in on another occasion, and when I was in there, I saw buses pulling up, probably about 100 migrants over an hour got off of these buses."
The migrants were "welcomed by people with open arms" before being given COVID-19 tests and packets with instructions on how to assimilate into the U.S., according to Gooden after reviewing a packet he received from the whistleblower.
"This packet is what I received from the whistleblower a few weeks ago," Gooden told Fox News. "And these packets detail how to go to the airport, how to get past TSA without any identification, how to enroll your children in schools, and assimilate in whatever community you desire to go in."
Gooden noted TSA agents told him sometimes the migrants are brought onto flights even before armed air marshals. The TSA agents are reporting the migrants holding "very convincing letters."
While the legality of the operation remains in question, Gooden noted religious groups in the San Diego area are assisting nonprofits in carrying out the accepting, accommodating, and repositioning of the migrants, making it a difficult proposition politically to call out the groups.
