Tucker Carlson reported President Joe Biden's administration is using Laughlin Air Force Base in Texas to "secretly" transport illegal immigrants, citing leaked correspondence.

The Fox News host posted an image of an email, which appeared to be from Lt. Colonel Matthew Burrows, that alerted members of the base that "passenger aircraft" would be utilizing runways under the direction of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Border Patrol. Carlson said on Wednesday the correspondence was obtained from a "whistleblower," adding the information was confirmed by the Pentagon.

“Over the next few days, weeks or months you may see passenger aircraft on our ramp transporting undocumented non-citizens," the email read in part. "Please review the attached public affairs guidance on this issue.”

The correspondence pointed recipients to a statement that would be issued if inquiries were made.

“In coordination with the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Del Rio Border Patrol will be using the Laughlin AFB runway to transport undocumented non-citizens via a Boeing 737," it read.

Burrows also told service members not to take pictures of the events, according to the correspondence.

“Do not take photographs and refrain from posting anything on social media," he said. "If anyone asks you about it, refer them to public affairs."

Carlson said Lt. Col Chris Mitchell, a spokesperson for the Pentagon, confirmed the authenticity of the email and said the military was helping to facilitate "non-citizen movement." Carlson remarked that ICE "did not deny" the utilization of Laughlin Air Force Base.

Neither the Department of Defense nor ICE immediately responded to requests for comment from the Washington Examiner.
