Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz Demands Inquiry Into Delta Airlines Transport of Illegal Aliens | The Gateway Pundit


Rep. Matt Gaetz speaks on the floor of the House of Representative on Tuesday, discussing the national debt.

Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz sent a letter to Delta CEO Ed Bastion on Friday demanding to know why the airliner is transporting illegal aliens across the country.

The congressman from Florida explained that Congress wanted to know if they were potentially working with the Biden regime or an NGO that would facilitate letting illegals on their airplanes.

Citizen journalist Ashley St. Clair brought attention to this topic after posting videos on Twitter (X) of illegals at the Phoenix airport.

Tampa Free Press reported:

Rep. Matt Gaetz on Friday demanded that the head of Delta Air Lines explain why and for whom his company is ferrying illegal immigrants around the country.

In a letter to Delta CEO Ed Bastion, the Fort Walton Beach Republican noted that Congress has a strong interest in knowing what “arrangements” his company may have with the Biden administration or any non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that allow illegals at the southern border to “book and travel” to areas in the interior of the country.

The issue came to light earlier this week when conservative journalist Ashley St. Clair posted a video on X of illegals lined up at the Phoenix airport for a flight to New York City. She was traveling on Delta and company officials refused to explain what was happening.

The letter included that NGOs commonly receive federal grants which means that there is a possibility that taxpayer money is going to fund illegal aliens flying aboard U.S. airplanes.

“Even more alarming than American taxpayers footing the bill for non-resident aliens to be transported into our communities is that they may not be properly vetted,” the GOP congressman added. As reported by the Tampa Free Press.

One of the other major concerns was that TSA was allowing other forms of identification that would not even qualify for an American citizen to use.

Congressman Gaetz wanted to know about the number of illegals that have flown with Delta since Biden was installed, NGOs process for getting boarding passes, if Delta got any financial incentives and what kind of IDs do illegals use that have been approved.

Gaetz wants transparency on the part of the airline in the interest of national security.


Rep. Gaetz called for Delta to answer a few questions:

•How many non-resident aliens has Delta airlines transported on behalf of nongovernmental organizations since January 20, 2021?

•How do NGOs purchase or reimburse your airlines for tickets of non-resident aliens? Are you now receiving, or have you ever received any incentive for reimbursement, including money, credit, or other benefits from the federal government in exchange for the transport of non-resident aliens?

•Has the TSA notified you of what forms of identification are acceptable for nonresident aliens to clear airport security and board your flights? If so, what are they?
