Bill McSwain Calls on Governor Wolf and AG Shapiro to answer for ICE flights

West Chester, Pa. — Bill McSwain, Republican Candidate for Governor, today called on Governor Tom Wolf and Attorney General Josh Shapiro to provide answers surrounding news that a number of secret “ghost flights” were chartered by the U.S. Government to carry illegal migrants into Pennsylvania. McSwain condemned this practice, as well as the Biden administration’s soft-on-crime agenda:

We are a nation of laws. This requires our government leaders to uphold the rule of law – and not do things like transport illegal immigrants into Pennsylvania in the dead of night. These ‘ghost flights’ are a slap in the face to law-abiding Pennsylvanians, and yet another example of Joe Biden’s willingness to prioritize taxpayer-funded accommodation of lawbreakers over the safety of American citizens. The people of Pennsylvania deserve better than to be duped into receiving hundreds of unvetted illegal immigrants into their communities. 

I am calling on Governor Wolf and Attorney General Shapiro to address whether they were aware of these flights, what they will do to stop further ghost flights from landing in Pennsylvania, and how they plan to work with local law enforcement to locate and detain any illegal immigrants transported into Pennsylvania this month. 

As U.S. Attorney appointed by President Trump, I enforced our nation’s immigration laws. As Governor, I would uphold law and order and use every tool at my disposal to fight the Biden administration’s dangerous and lawless policies that encourage and perpetuate illegal immigration.


Appointed by President Trump, McSwain’s record as US Attorney demonstrates his fierce defense of constitutional rights, dedication to upholding law and order, and history of putting criminals and corrupt politicians in jail. 

Prior to becoming an attorney, Bill served as a scout/sniper platoon commander in the U.S. Marine Corps. He was born in Philadelphia and raised in Chester County, where he lives today with his wife, Stephanie, and their four children.More information on McSwain’s background and platform is available here.
