If you’re an illegal alien, however, you can fly for free…

United Airlines revealed the company will provide complimentary flights to families who were separated as they illegally crossed over the United States border.

United is partnering with FWD.us, an advocacy group known for defending illegal immigrant rights, which made the announcement Wednesday.

In a statement on Facebook, FWD.us welcomed United to the partnership and thanked the airline for joining the ‘Flights For Families’ campaign. The effort is working to reunite parents that have been separated from their children when they were detained illegally hopping the border. United will be donating flights to rejoin the families. –Daily Caller

United posted a comment expressing how “proud” they are to be flying people who have illegally crossed our borders around the United States for free, under the FWD.us post on Facebook: Our company’s shared purpose is to connect people and unite the world — we are proud to support your work to help reunify immigrant children and families. ^MM

Should United Airlines inject themselves in the middle of a very unpopular and divisive illegal immigration argument? We’ve seen many examples (like the one in the video below) of how the Left is using the illegal immigration argument to foment hate against President Trump and his followers, further dividing Americans.

A recent CBS poll shows that most Americans want parents and children who enter America illegally kept together as a unit, but prefer that the entire family is either detained or deported after they are caught crossing the border into America. In fact, just 21% of Americans believe that these illegal aliens and their offspring should be released into American streets.

According to a CBS poll, 48% of Americans says that the United States government should “release the entire family back to their home country together.” 11% of Americans believe that the parents should be arrested, but have their children kept with them in the same facility.

Does United Airlines want to be seen as the airline who sides with these people?
