United Airlines Gives Free Flights To Illegal Aliens

Published

on

Flying is becoming more problematic for travelers these days as costs and waiting times increase. United Airlines has seen more than their share of bad publicity over various events. It’s not cheap to fly the friendly skies anymore either. Take for instance if you are thinking of traveling from Houston, TX to Phoenix, AZ on United Airlines tomorrow. Your ticket will probably cost you over $1,000 and that does not include insurance and change fees. It’s why discount airlines are doing so well these days and in fact, it’s why many people just choose not to fly unless they have to. Between costs, inconvenience and the TSA, flying just isn’t what it used to be.

If you are an illegal alien, it’s a different story. You can fly for free. That’s right! If you are breaking the rule of law, United Airlines will give you free passage. They are providing complimentary flights to illegal alien families who were separated when they crossed the border. United Airlines has partnered up with FWD.us. They are an advocacy group that is known for defending illegal immigrant rights. The deal was announced Wednesday. Funny, I don’t remember sweet deals like this for our military or for Americans period. Go figure.

The San Francisco Business Times reported Thursday that the pro-immigration lobbying group FWD.us announced United’s donation in a Facebook post, calling it “needed, timely, and critical.” They thanked United Airlines for joining the ‘Flights For Families’ campaign. Ostensibly, this campaign is meant to reunite children with their parents after being separated for legal vetting on the border. United couldn’t wait to post a comment on Facebook saying how “proud” they are to be flying people for free who have broken the rule of law to illegally sneak across our border. They are just proud as punch to support FWD.us and their work to help reunify immigrant children and families. That could very well alienate a bunch of potential customers.

“A growing community of support is coming together to reunite families who were separated at the border. We are so thankful and happy to announce that United Airlines is jumping in and helping,” FWD.us’ statement read. “Thanks to this partnership with United, we are able to provide travel to the recently reunited immigrant families to get to their next destination with dignity.” United replied by saying, “Our company’s shared purpose is to connect people and unite the world — we are proud to support your work and help reunify immigrant children and families. ^MM”

The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) also announced Tuesday that it would donate $3 million toward its “Flights for Families” project. RAICES, one of the groups working to reunite families at the border, said in the announcement that it would work with FWD.us and Families Belong Together on the initiative. FWD.us was founded by Microsoft’s Bill Gates, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Dropbox’s Drew Houston.

Frankly, I’m not sure as a business it is wise for United to insert themselves into the middle of the immigration battle. Either way they go, they upset people. It speaks of not supporting President Trump’s agenda on the border, the rule of law and law enforcement. That’s not great PR for the airline if you ask me. You let illegal aliens fly for free and give the military an extra bag for free. That doesn’t sound right or fair to me.

A recent CBS poll does show that most Americans want children kept with their parents who illegally enter the country. But the catch is, they also want them detained or deported as a family after they are caught crossing the border into America. Only 21 percent want illegal aliens and their children released onto America’s streets. 48 percent say that the government should “release the entire family back to their home country together.” I agree with that sentiment. 11% of Americans believe that the parents should be arrested, but have their children kept with them in the same facility.

Remember, United and Delta both scrapped discounts for NRA members recently. Priorities prevail and it’s easy to see where their loyalties truly lie.

United also told federal officials in June it wants “no part” in President Trump’s zero-tolerance immigration policy and therefore will not transport illegal immigrant children whose parents are detained. “Based on our serious concerns about this policy and how it’s in deep conflict with our company’s values, we have contacted federal officials to inform them that they should not transport immigrant children on United aircraft who have been separated from their parents,” a statement read from United CEO Oscar Munoz. “This policy and its impact on thousands of children is in deep conflict with that mission and we want no part of it,” Munoz added.

This was just the next step for United Airlines. Wonder how they will identify those claiming a free flight? Seems to me that United Airlines is more concerned with social justice these days than customer service. Needless to say, I won’t be flying United Airlines anytime in the near future or ever again for that matter.

Mueller Begs McConnell For Protection Bill – He Responds With Something Better

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell flatly rejected the need to approve legislation protecting the special counsel’s probe into the 2016 election, saying Wednesday there’s no evidence the investigation needs protection.

Mr. McConnell laid out Republicans’ goals for the lame-duck session of Congress, saying preventing a government shutdown is tops on the list, along with passing new rules to stop sexual harassment on Capitol Hill and approving a farm bill.

He flatly ruled out the chance of a partial government shutdown over border wall money and other spending fights.

And he dismissed the need for Congress to act on legislation Democrats and some Republicans want to protect special counsel Robert Mueller.

“I don’t think any legislation’s necessary,” Mr. McConnell said.

He said he speaks regularly with President Trump and while the president has made his distaste for the investigation clear, he’s never given an “indication” that he would attempt to shut down the probe.

Mr. McConnell said for his part he believes the investigation should be allowed to finish.

Democrats said they’re intent on getting Mueller protections approved during this lame-duck session of Congress.

Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer said Wednesday that those provisions, if they don’t pass as a stand-alone bill, need to be part of the year-end spending bill.

And Mr. Schumer drew lines over other parts of the spending bill, saying it should not go above the current $1.6 billion senators have included for new border security such as a wall.

Mr. Trump has demanded it include at least $5 billion in funding for his border wall. The House has passed a bill with that number, putting it on a crash course with senators.

Mr. Schumer said Congress should compromise by agreeing on the Senate’s number, and he told Mr. Trump to butt out of any negotiations.

“Every time he interferes, it gets bolluxed up,” the New York Democrat said.

Mr. Schumer also took a victory lap on last week’s election results, which saw his caucus likely lose one or two seats. The senator said that was still a victory for Democrats because it could have been much worse for them.

And he said voters sent a signal of support for Democrats’ policy ideas, which he said they’ll pursue even while in the minority in the Senate.

Elected Republican Majority Whip Just Announced – Will Shake Up The Senate

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Daily Caller

South Dakota Sen. John Thune was elected to serve as the Republican Majority Whip Wednesday.

Thune was nominated by former whip, Texas Sen. John Cornyn. This comes as Cornyn met his three-term limit in the position. The majority whip is the second-ranking position in Senate leadership.

Republicans voted for other leadership positions Wednesday, making Missouri Republican Sen. Roy Blunt the Policy Committee chairman, Iowa Republican Sen. Joni Ernst was voted in as vice chairwoman of the GOP conference and Wyoming Republican Sen. John Barrasso will serve as Senate Republican Conference chairman, according to The Hill.

Thune has served as chairman of the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee since 2015. He will now have to step down as chairman, after taking his new job as majority whip.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell praised Cornyn Wednesday, giving him a Louisville slugger baseball bat with “To John Cornyn – The Best Whip Ever,” written on it.

Meanwhile, The Hill has more on Joni Ernst elected to serve as vice chairwoman of the Senate Republican Conference:

Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) has been elected to serve as vice chairwoman of the Senate Republican Conference, becoming the first woman to be elected to a Senate GOP leadership position since 2010.

Ernst, a veteran of the Iraq War who served a total of 23 years in the military, is considered a rising star among her colleagues.

She defeated Sen. Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) in the only contested Senate Republican leadership race after months of quiet campaigning in the conference.

Senate Republicans saw Ernst as someone who might be a better communicator for the conference on television, while Fischer garnered praise as someone who worked diligently behind the scenes to build relationships with members of GOP leadership.

Ernst emerged as the winner after Senate Republicans met in the Old Senate Chamber on Wednesday morning to vote on the new leadership team for the 116th Congress.

McConnell was reelected as Senate majority leader, Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) was elected as majority whip, Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) was elected as Senate Republican Conference chairman and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) was elected as Senate Republican Policy Committee chairman.

Ernst burst onto the national scene in 2014 with an ad recounting her upbringing on a farm where she castrated hogs and pledging that she would “make ‘em squeal” in Washington by cutting pork.

Senate Republicans say McConnell has been eager to add a woman to his elected leadership team after he came under criticism in 2017 for not appointing a woman to a special health-care working group he created.

A woman has not served as a member of the elected Senate GOP leadership since 2010, when Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) stepped down as vice chairwoman of the GOP conference after losing her primary race to conservative challenger Joe Miller.

Former Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) served as chairman of the Republican Policy Committee from 2007 to 2009, the highest-ranking position a woman has held in the Senate GOP leadership since Sen. Margaret Chase Smith (R-Maine) chaired the Senate Republican Conference in the early 1970s.

Fischer and Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) already serve as informal counselors on McConnell’s leadership team.

Senate Republicans also came under scrutiny during Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings over the all-male GOP membership of the Judiciary Committee.

McConnell says one of his priorities is to recruit more women to the Judiciary panel.
