President Joe Biden has essentially made no secret of the fact that he intends to pursue an open borders policy and to prevent enforcement of the nation’s immigration policy, but recently-leaked video of migrants being transported to the country’s interior under cover of night has some lawmakers calling for the commander in chief’s impeachment, as Fox News reports.
Miranda Devine of the New York Post explained in detail what the footage, produced under a Freedom of Information Act request made by Republican New York gubernatorial hopeful Rob Astorino, reveals about the mysterious flights landing in Westchester County, among other places, from points of origination including El Paso, McAllen, and Houston, Texas.
In the video, recorded in August of 2021, local police Sgt. Michael Hamborsky is heard questioning federal contractors hired to facilitate passenger movement, saying in exasperation, “The government is betraying the American people,” and lamenting the fact that the activity at the airport is occurring on a secure facility, but “we really don’t know anything and we’re in charge of security.”
The footage shows Hamborsky requesting identification from one of the federal contractors assisting at the airport and being told “I can give you my state ID, but work Ids we’re not allowed to,” causing the police sergeant to declare, “I’m just trying to figure out what’s what, who’s who and how I’m supposed to keep this secure.”
Later, Hamborsky asks why the contractors and migrants are sent through smaller airports such as Westchester, and the answer he receives is “You don’t want to be somewhere the spotlight is. You want to try and be as down-low as possible. A lot of this is just down-low stuff that we don’t tell people because what we don’t want to do is attract attention. We don’t want the media.”
Speaking to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson about the security personnel’s commentary in which he expressed frustration about the secrecy surrounding the arrivals, Astorino blasted the Biden administration’s migrant machinations, saying, “Our government is completely out of control right now. They have lied to us,” and he noted that he personally witnessed flight passengers subsequently being bused to a Costco store whereupon they were “released into cars into the community.”
The entire controversy has since prompted two New York Republican legislators, Reps. Nicole Malliotakis and Claudia Tenney, to demand answers from the Biden administration and even call for the president’s impeachment, according to Fox News.
“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,” said Tenney, adding, “His primary obligation is 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 concurred, emphasizing that aiding and abetting the process of illegal immigration is a violation of the law and for it to be happening under the auspices of the president is “completely unacceptable,” but whether any real consequences for the administration will follow the emergence of these disturbing scenes is something only time will tell.
