California Launches Investigation into Private Jet Carrying Migrants to Sacramento

California officials are investigating after a private jet carrying migrants arrived in Sacramento this afternoon. The plane, which was carrying 13 individuals, was intercepted by federal authorities at Sacramento International Airport.

According to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, the individuals on board included several families and unaccompanied minors. The group had reportedly flown to Sacramento from an unknown location in Central America.

The individuals were taken into custody by federal officials, who are now working to determine their identities and immigration status. The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that they are cooperating with federal authorities in the investigation.

The incident has fueled concerns about illegal immigration and the handling of migrants at the southern border. Governor Gavin Newsom, who has been a vocal critic of President Trump’s immigration policies, said in a statement that the incident “underscores the urgent need for comprehensive immigration reform at the federal level.”

The investigation is ongoing, and officials have not yet released any further details about the individuals on board the plane or where they were headed.
