United Nations-Tied Organization Hiring Coordinator To Facilitate Migrant Flights Into United States

 An international organization working in partnership with the United Nations is hiring a “flight management” position to facilitate travel by migrants into the interior of the United States, according to a job posting.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM), an intergovernmental organization classified as a “related organization” in partnership with the UN, is hoping to hire people to function as the “operations focal point” for “flight management” to assist with the flying of foreign nationals throughout the country, the job description states.

The role appears to be to facilitate the entire process of migrating into the United States. Among the responsibilities associated with the role are to “brief arrivals on procedures,” “escort them to the immigration area,” and “assist arrivals through procedures and ensure Customs and Border Protection (CBP) stamps all relevant documents.”

Flight management personnel must also “communicate with US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and resolve issues as they arise in coordination with the Senior Operations Assistant” while also ensuring migrants are “escorted to their connecting flights, ground transportation or hotel.” IOM is hiring flight management staff in multiple locations, including Houston, Texas and Atlanta, Georgia for year-long terms at $5,500 per month.

The organization calls itself “the leading intergovernmental organization in the field of migration and is committed to the principle that humane and orderly migration benefits migrants and society” before adding that it is “part of the United Nations system, as a related organization.” IOM specifically says that part of its mission is to help in “facilitating migration.”

IOM receives the bulk of its funding from the U.S. government, which gave the organization $942 million in 2022. More recently the State Department granted the organization another $16 million in taxpayer funds. The organization garnered another $241 million from United Nations Organizations. IOM recently requested a whopping $7.9 billion from member states to fund its activities, including migrant resettlement across the globe.

The IOM did not respond to a request for comment.

The Center for Immigration Studies discovered through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit that 320,000 “inadmissible aliens” flew into the U.S. in 2023, taking advantage of U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s One mobile app. While it is unknown where exactly the migrants were sent, Bensman’s report found that they arrived at 43 different airports across the United States.

Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN) recently proposed an amendment that would prevented federal funds from being used by the Biden administration to fly illegal immigrants into the interior of the United States. The measure was shot down, with every single Democrat in the U.S. Senate voting against it.

The United States also currently faces an unprecedented immigration crisis on the southern border, with officials recording about 9 million nationwide encounters and 1.7 million estimated gotaways since President Joe Biden took office, as well as high-profile violent crimes committed by illegal immigrants.
