President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) could use taxpayer-funded Amtrak train service to transport commuters and illegal aliens to the United States, according to House Republicans.
Although Biden was blocked by a federal judge from ending the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Title 42 authority at the US-Mexico border, his administration pledged to end the policy when and if it receives the green light.
The authority, first imposed by former President Trump in March 2020, allows Border Patrol agents to quickly return illegal aliens to Mexico. Already, Biden has ensured that DHS is increasingly using Title 42 to immediately remove illegal aliens.
In a letter to Amtrak officials this week, Republicans on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee warned that Biden could use Amtrak to ferry commuters and illegal aliens into U.S. communities once Title 42 ended.
We are concerned about the impact a much larger border surge could have on your services and the potential use of Amtrak in the administration’s response to its self-created border crisis. [Emphasis added]
If Title 42 ends, causing a massive wave of migrants at the border, we are deeply concerned that Amtrak’s resources – especially those supporting the Sunset Limited route – will be used to transport these undocumented people. Such a situation would cause disruption for Amtrak customers. as well as the interruption of freight traffic which could further aggravate the supply chain crisis. Such actions would also be an unreasonable use of large amounts of taxpayers’ money and resources to facilitate the vast movement of illegal migrants into American communities. [Emphasis added]
Such a policy would add another transportation vehicle for cross-border commuters and illegal aliens conscripted into Biden’s massive capture-and-release operation.
Currently, the Biden administration — with the help of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) such as Catholic Charities and Jewish Family Services — shuttles and transports thousands of cross-border commuters and illegal aliens to American communities every few days for free.
In cases where commuters and illegal aliens are airlifted into the interior of the United States, the Biden administration has authorized nearly 1,000 people to use arrest warrants and deportation orders as valid identification documents to board domestic commercial flights.
From February 2021 to May 2022, more than one million cross-border commuters and illegal aliens were released into American communities by the Biden administration. Release figures for June and July have not yet been released.
Today, most Americans think there’s “an invasion” on the southern border, as nearly 4.9 million people are estimated to have arrived at the country’s borders since Biden took office. with between 11 and 22 million illegal aliens already living in the United States
