Leaked Video Shows Migrants Landing at Airport in Secret: ‘The Government is Betraying the American People’
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1813: Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is published by Thomas Egerton in the U.K.
Leaked body cam footage shows migrants landing at an airport in Westchester, New York on secret charter flights in the middle of the night.
In the video, federal contractors criticize the Biden administration for the “hush-hush” operation, saying that “the government is betraying the American people.”
The 51-minutes of footage were obtained under a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by former Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino.
“Our government is completely out of control right now. They have lied to us. They’ve lied to the American people,” said Astorino, a GOP gubernatorial candidate for 2022, during an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.
Astorino said he personally saw the migrants being put on a bus to a Costco, where they were “then released into cars into the community.”
The footage shows Westchester Police Sgt. Michael Hamborsky asking the federal contractors questions about the after-hours flights and why local police were not given details.
“You’re on a secure facility here; we really don’t know anything and we’re in charge of security,” Hamborsky told one of the contractors.
“I’m just trying to figure out what’s what, who’s who and how I’m supposed to keep this secure.”
“We’re not allowed to have our picture taken when we get on base,” one contractor told the officer as they began showing him lanyards around their necks.
“Un-f–king-believable,” Hamborsky responded. “And who’s that by? DHS [Department of Homeland Security]?”
“Yes, and the United States Army,” the contractor responded. “You’re on a federal installation but DHS wants everything on the down low.”
Another contractor told Hamborsky: “Listen, my thing is I like to comply but technically we’re not supposed to show IDs or anything. Like I said, everything is supposed to be hush hush.”
New York Reps. Nicole Malliotakis (R) and Claudia Tenney vehemently criticized the Biden administration after the footage surfaced on Thursday.
“This is a complete, aggravated dereliction of duty, which is why last night on Twitter I called for Joe Biden to be impeached and removed,” Tenney said.
“His primary obligation as the commander-in-chief and president of the United States is to enforce our laws, to live up to his oath, to enforce our border security and to tell the truth to the American people.”
Malliotakis said that aiding and abetting illegal immigration is a violation of the law.
“And you have it coming from the president of the United States. It is completely unacceptable. The Supreme Court ruled that he had to reinstate Remain in Mexico and he’s clearly not done that,” Malliotakis said.
