Newly Released Police Video Shows Federal Contractors Flying Illegal Immigrants Into New York Airport
Police bodycam video obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request shows illegal immigrants being flown by federal contractors into an airport in White Plains, New York.
The footage was obtained by former Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, now a Republican candidate for Governor in New York.
“Our government is completely out of control right now. They have lied to us. They’ve lied to the American people,” he told Fox News host Tucker Carlson Wednesday after they aired the shocking video.
Fox News describes the flights as being “under the cover of night” and showing “migrants” from southern border states arriving at Westchester County airport.
Footage captured shows a police officer asking federal contractors a myriad of questions about the after-hours flights. The contractors in turn provide some shocking commentary about their government-paid work.

Police Video Released Under Freedom Of Information Act
Police video of illegal immigrants being flown into the Westchester County airport seems to confirm a previous story by The Political Insider that the Biden administration is flying illegal immigrants to New York in an effort to resettle them into the region.
The New York Post in October reported that, based on a combination of personal observation by their reporters and sources familiar with the matter, the flights have been conducted there since August.

The fresh police bodycam footage shows federal contractors seemingly disagreeing with what is happening by transporting the illegal immigrants to the airport in the dead of night.
“The government is betraying the American people,” one contractor can be heard telling a police officer.
Betraying the American People
Westchester Police Sgt. Michael Hamborsky insists to those conducting the transports that his department is in charge of security on the facility but they have not been informed of the flights.
At one point in the video, Hamborsky attempts to explain that he is trying to keep the facility secure, but one contractor responds, “We’re not allowed to have our picture taken when we get on base.”
“And who’s that by? DHS?” the officer responds.
“Yes, and the United States Army,” the contractor replies. “You’re on a federal installation but DHS wants everything on the down-low.”

The video of illegal immigrants being flown into the New York airport shows contractors explaining why the federal government is using a location 35 miles north of New York City – and 2,000 miles away from the southern border.
“You don’t want to be in somewhere the spotlight is,” one contractor states. “You want to try and be as down low as possible.”
He goes on to note in the video that they have no desire for media attention regarding the flights carrying illegal immigrants to the Westchester airport.

A contractor in the video claims that “everything” being done at the airport “is supposed to be hush hush.”
The bombshell police video comes as statistics released by the CBP show a Biden administration unable or unwilling to get border crossings under control.
According to reports, there were 178,840 illegal immigrants apprehended at the border in December, breaking the previous record under DHS for that month by over 100,000.
All told, nearly 2 million illegal immigrants have been apprehended at the border since Biden took office just over one year ago.
Earlier this week, The Political Insider reported on video showing a mass release of single adult illegal immigrants into the country.

After being dropped off at a parking garage in Brownsville, Texas, taxi cabs reportedly arrived and transported illegal immigrants to a nearby airport where they were then being sent “to destinations including Miami, Houston and Atlanta.”
The contractor in the Westchester County airport video explains why these flights are being conducted seemingly outside the glare of the public eye.
“You know why. Look who’s in office. That’s why. Come on,” the contractor told Hamborsky.
“But what’s the big secret?” the cop replied.
“You know why. Because if this gets out, the government is betraying the American people,” the contractor said.
The Biden administration has argued that the after-hour flights are designed for the safety of “unaccompanied children.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, responding to reports of the flights in October said, “It is our legal responsibility to safely care for unaccompanied children until they can be swiftly reunited with a parent or a vetted sponsor.”
DOOCY TIME (from earlier — wasn’t at my desk when it aired): “Why is the administration flying thousands of migrants from the border to FL & NY in the middle of the night?”

Astorino contends that the notion these are simply unaccompanied minors is false.
“Now they keep saying ‘it’s just unaccompanied kids.’ Completely a lie. And that these kids were not going to go into our own area. Completely a lie,” Astorino told Carlson. “[They’re being put] into schools in Westchester, Long Island, the surrounding suburbs.”
“So it is a complete breakdown of our system,” he concluded. “It is a betrayal, as that gentleman said, a betrayal to the American people.”
