The Biden administration has been secretly relocating migrant children to New York by secretly chartering planes from Texas, a new report alleges.

According to the New York Post, the government has been ferrying the migrant children for more than two months.

Sightings of some of the flights containing underage migrant children have been reported by travelers waiting at Westchester County Airport, which is located near the suburb of White Plains, New York, the outlet noted. 

Journalists wrote that they witnessed children and teenagers leaving Westchester airport by bus in the early hours of the morning, which is when most of the flights containing the migrants have landed.

New York Congresswoman Elise Stefanik blasted the Biden administration's clandestine operation to resettle migrants on Tuesday, tweeting "Joe Biden’s border crisis is out of control! He is now shipping his problem to New York."

When asked about the resettlement program, the White House said it was only relocating underage migrants who were left unattended at the southern border.

In a statement obtained by the Washington Examiner, a Health and Human Services spokesperson said "it is our legal responsibility to safely care for unaccompanied children until they can be swiftly unified with a parent or a vetted sponsor."
