The US military is using passenger aircraft to fly illegal immigrants within the US from an Air Force base in Texas, according to documents seen by Fox News. The operation, confirmed by the Pentagon, is being conducted in secret.
In the coming days, weeks and months, passenger aircraft will transport illegal immigrants from Laughlin Air Force Base in Del Rio, Texas, to undisclosed locations. That’s according to an email from a colonel at the base to his subordinates, supposedly given to Fox host Tucker Carlson by a whistleblower.

The email explains that the flights will be operated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Del Rio Border Patrol, and the colonel, Lt. Col. Matthew Burrows, instructs personnel at the base to keep the operation under wraps.
“Do not take photographs and refrain from posting anything on social media,” Burrows wrote. “If anyone asks you about it, refer them to public affairs.”
The destination of these flights is unknown. A Pentagon spokesman told Carlson’s show that the flights were part of a “non-citizen movement” program, and referred Carlson’s team to ICE.
“ICE did not deny they were using Laughlin Air Force Base to relocate large numbers of foreign nationals into the interior of our country and do it secretly,” Carlson said on his show on Wednesday night. Carlson said that ICE promised to provide additional details, but never did.
The operation, if it exists as Carlson claims and ICE doesn’t deny, would not be unprecedented. Back in March, the Center for Immigration Studies, a right-wing think tank, reported that the Department of Homeland Security was apprehending migrants near the Mexican border in Texas and releasing them to a charity organization to be placed on buses and sent as far north as Georgia,
