United Airlines, the corporation which killed a dog, banned a woman for wearing yoga pants, and demmanded police drag a passenger off the plane, has decided they will refuse to transport any immigrant children separated from their parents – even though the airline has never – not once – done so in the past.
United Airlines joined American Airlines in telling the federal government to “immediately refrain” from using its planes to transport children who have been separated from their families who crossed the US-Mexico border.
Like many other US airlines, American has contracts with the federal government that allow authorities to use its planes to provide for certain travel. For example, the company said it has “carried refugees for non-profits and the government.”
“We have no desire to be associated with separating families, or worse, to profit from it,” the company said in a statement Wednesday. “We have every expectation the government will comply with our request and we thank them for doing so.” (H/T – AOSHQ)
It’s obvious the shills at United have little to no knowledge of the country’s immigration laws, and even less motivation to read them. I believe the United CEO claimed they were upset with this “new policy;” yeah, the one which has been around since at least the Obama administration. Wonder why this is the first time airlines are complaining? Oh, that’s right, because there’s a Republican in the White House.
By the way, Obama’s Press Secretary Josh Earnest is the chief communications officer at United. No agenda there.
I have never been a fan of American or United Airlines, but I can assure you I will never fly their leftist airline again.
