New York gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino (right) said on Tuesday that the Biden administration’s “secret flights” of illegal immigrants from the southern border were increasing.
Astorino joined “Fox & Friends” in slamming the Biden administration for encouraging illegal immigration, adding that flights are landing in New York with no response from the federal government on who is on the planes.
In January, the former Westchester County leader released a video showing migrants arriving in the area on what he called secret flights. Astorino has released new video of flights he says “regularly land” at Stewart International Airport in Orange County with Navy and National Guard soldiers present.

“They get off the plane, but then they line up and get on their buses. … There were a few small children, there were women and girls, but a lot of them are teenagers in their late twenties , clearly early twenties. And I don’t know what’s in those duffel bags. Maybe it’s a dinero from the US government because they get a free phone when they cross the Rio Great,” he told host Brian Kilmeade.
Astorino said migrants are being bussed all over New York and other states and “no one is told” their whereabouts or identity.
Astorino criticized Democratic Governor Kathy Hochul for “inciting” illegal immigration.
“We give everything to non-citizens as gifts, including Hochul. A $2 billion fund from New York State. So we encourage everyone to come,” he said.

Astorino demanded transparency from the federal government on the thefts.
“The federal government, nor the state, don’t give any information to citizens who pay the bill for all this, non-citizens being treated as citizens, citizens being told, fuck off, you get no information of your own government. And by the way, our hospitals, our schools, our communities, our housing, all of that has to be provided by us, the citizens,” he said.
Meanwhile, a caravan currently heading to the United States via Mexico could become the the largest ever reached the southern border of the United Statesthe current number of nearly 10,000 migrants expected to increase to around 15,000.

In January, the White House pushed back against Astorino’s claims after the video made headlines.
“Secret flights don’t exist,” a White House official said in response to a query from Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy.
