Representative Lance Gooden is a Republican from Texas. He has been in the House since 2019. Over the past two days, Gooden has made headlines for accusing some San Diego nonprofits of conducting a covert, organized effort to bring migrants into the country and then arrange for them to be transported across the country. country. The information came to him from an informant.
Gooden says he received information and decided to go and check it out for himself. He went to San Diego and saw what he said the whistleblower’s information claimed. He visited the border in San Diego and saw illegal immigrants buses travel to hotels that are closed to the public run by well-funded nonprofits.
“We followed the bus to the gates and kept watching it unload about 50 immigrants and it looked like they all had a sack of potatoes or a grapefruit bag full of items, clothing, etc.,” he said. “They were taken for COVID testing and separated, and we were told they would spend a night or two there before being taken to various destinations in the United States.”
“They are saying where they want to go and these private groups – I don’t know where they are getting their funding – these private groups are buying their plane tickets and giving them a packet of information on what to do when they arrive at the airport, how to pass [Transportation Security Administration] without an identity card, what to say and then how to enroll their children in school when they get to where they are going “.
“These buses run continuously throughout the day in these various hotels which they say are closed for construction, when they are very open and are only closed to the public,” he said.
There is an ORGANIZED operation to bring illegal immigrants to the United States.
Border Police now forecast 1.8 MILLION arrests of illegal immigrants in 2022.
Those who are helping illegal immigrants to come to the US must be STOPPED!

During his Fox and Friends interview Monday morning, Gooden was asked which nonprofits are helping with this operation. He cited both Catholic Charities of San Diego and the Jewish Family Association as two examples. He pointed to AT&T, Bank of America, and the federal government as funding sources for these organizations.
The envelope his office received from the whistleblower is the same as the one given to illegal immigrants. Flight information, copies of the CBP appearance notice, a list of pro bono legal service providers, maps of major US cities, and Spanish legal information and assistance were provided. The package also contained a letter from a non-profit organization that the migrant had to present to TSA officials. The letter asks that the stowaway be allowed to board a flight with limited identification. He states that the letter should be sufficient to be searched in the SecureFlight program. Regular legal residents of the United States have to do everything but Hokey Pokey to be able to board a flight, but illegal migrants are asked to simply dance on board with minimal identification, and often sooner. other passengers are allowed to board. Seems fair to me with this administration.
The Texas lawmaker said he spoke to the TSA about the packages and informed him that migrants sometimes show up with “very convincing letters” and in some cases are put on the plane before anyone else. An armed security officer reportedly told Gooden that migrants are often already on the plane when he boards early to notify the pilot of his presence.
Gooden said there is information on how to integrate into the community they move to and how to enroll their children in school. It seems exaggerated to expect them to assimilate when they arrived in the country by illegal means. If they continue as they started, why do they think they have the motivation to assimilate into their new communities? They do things their way and learn how to reap the benefits provided by the most generous country in the world, the United States. Who can blame them for taking Biden’s invitation seriously and crossing a border state?
