Illegal aliens departing government-provided buses in New Jersey Thursday called police on a Fox News reporter trying to interview them.
“And things got a little contentious,” said Lawrence Jones, host of the network’s show “Cross Country.” Jones explained to the officers he wasn’t harassing the illegal immigrants. Jones told Fox host Sean Hannity he informed police he was just trying to do his job and report on the situation.
Jones posted a teaser for his Thursday interview with Hannity on Twitter. “Exclusive: Cross Country received a tip that the Biden admin is back secretly flying migrants into NY,” Jones proclaimed. “We saw 150+ migrants leave the plane. They were loaded on 3 buses. Our cameras followed one of the buses.”
The reporter was following up on a tip he said a source provided that indicated the Biden administration had resumed flying and busing illegal aliens to interior U.S. municipalities. President Joe Biden reportedly said the government would stop flying illegals to cities in early morning flights after Florida and other states sued. The action was reportedly designed to handle a record surge of illegals at the Southern border. In December 2021, Border Patrol agents reported capturing as many illegals as they had in the previous three Decembers combined.
“Instead of commencing immigration court proceedings against illegal immigrants caught at the border, the federal government is releasing them into the interior without even starting the legal process for their removal,” Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis said in a January statement.
“The amended complaint comes after shocking evidence uncovered dozens of adult male illegal immigrants brought to a U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement office, and then bussed to a nearby airport to be sent to their chosen destination inside the United States.”
So, when the Fox reporter got a tip that the feds were flying illegals around the country again, he investigated.
“We got a tip from a source saying that they were doing these flights yet again,” Jones explained. “They had quit them for a moment. But we did something different. They get on these buses, about three buses.” He counted about 150 illegals on those buses, comprised of women, children and men and his team followed one of the buses in New Jersey. He tried to interview some of them as they got off the bus.
“I wanted to go up there and talk to them and see where exactly did they come from and where were they going,” the reporter said. “So, as I began to do that, I guess it agitated some of the migrants. They started flashing our cameraman with lights and everything and trying to conceal their identity. ”
Jones said they stopped that but appeared reluctant to get off the bus near his cameraman.
“Eventually the migrants – the people here illegally – called the police on me,” he said. “And things got a little contentious.”
