Fox News hosts Greg Gutfeld and Jesse Watters criticized President Joe Biden’s administration over late-night flights transporting illegal immigrants across the country.
Gutfeld and Watters argued on “The Five” that the Biden administration appeared to be “hiding” the flights from public view by scheduling them to take place at four in the morning. (RELATED: Greg Gutfeld: ‘We Need To Abandon The Idea That These People In Power Actually Give A Damn About Us’)
“Jesse, anything I’m doing at 4 in the morning can’t be good,” Gutfeld began.
“That is my point, anybody that does something in secret, they are not proud of that. You’re not proud of that. No one is proud of what you are doing in secret in the middle of the night,” Watters agreed. “Joe knows he’s wrong. He knows he’s wrong. He feels guilty about it, that is why he’s hiding this like a coward.”
Watters then challenged the Biden administration to “own it” and come before the American people and make the case for the way they were handling the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border.
“He won’t because he can’t, he knows if people know about this policy, the country will be appalled and that’s why no one besides Fox will report this,” Watters continued.
He went on to argue that the administration’s failure to properly vet the refugees who were evacuated from Afghanistan ought to give people pause or at least make them question whether they were properly vetting sponsors as illegal immigrants poured across the border.
“You know that these sponsors are vetted? You know these are the real parents? Come on, you don’t know that. This is taxpayer-funded human trafficking,” Watters added. “Who are these people they are giving them to? Who are these agencies that are getting these fat federal contracts to receive these teenagers? Who are they?”
Watters concluded by saying that vaccine mandates were causing flight cancellations for American citizens who had paid for their flights, but Biden was effectively advertising free flights to illegal immigrants.
“It’s still weird, the timing, why does it have to be at 4 a.m.?” Gutfeld asked.
“Why do you think? He’s not even telling the governors he’s doing it. Doesn’t want anybody to know,” Watters replied.
Co-host Katie Pavlich noted that all the people being transported appeared to have a handler and paperwork, adding, “It is a very organized effort and somebody’s getting paid.”
