Obtained Video Shows Federal Contractors ‘Betraying the American people’

By: George William

A 51-minute footage was obtained under a Freedom of Information Act request by former Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, a Republican candidate for governor in 2022 shows illegal immigrants being let off a plane and onto busses headed for the interior of the country.

Throughout the footage, police Sgt. Michael Hamborsky expresses frustration that local police have been given no information about the flights arriving after curfew at the airport, in breach of security protocols.

The bodycam footage shows Hamborsky courteously but persistently questioning a dozen federal contractors who are bustling around the tarmac overseeing migrants disembarking and boarding American Dream charter buses waiting on the tarmac between about 6:15 and 7 a.m.

Hamborsky asks to see the ID of the MVM contractors.

“I can give you my state ID,” replies one man, “but work IDs we’re not allowed to.”

Hamborsky tells the contractors: “I’m just trying to figure out what’s what, who’s who and how I’m supposed to keep this secure.”

The contractors start giving him the lanyards from around their necks.

One says: “We’re not allowed to have our picture taken when we get on base.”

“Un-f–king-believable,” Hamborsky replies. “And who’s that by? DHS [Department of Homeland Security]?”

“Yes, and the United States Army,” is the reply. “You’re on a federal installation but DHS wants everything on the down-low.”

Hamborsky asks another contractor why they come to a small airport like Westchester.

“You don’t want to be in somewhere the spotlight is,” is the reply. “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. Like we don’t even know where we’re going when they tell us.”

Another contractor tells 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.”

One of the bus drivers waiting for his migrant passengers to board tells Hamborsky he has no idea of his destination.

“They didn’t tell you where it’s going?” asks the cop.

The driver replies: “They never do.”

Hamborsky learns from one of the MVM contractors that Delaware and Virginia are two destinations. Later he is told two more buses are heading for Madison, NJ, with one continuing to Maryland.

“You’re trying to figure out what this is?” asks one of the bus drivers. “Good luck with that.”

Later in the bodycam recording, a contractor tells Hamborsky: “I get the whole secrecy and all that s–t but this is even above my f–king pay grade … the f- -k, you know what I mean?”

Hamborsky replies: “And why? You know why?”

The contractor replies: “You know why, look who’s in office. That’s why, come on.”

Hamborsky says: “But what’s the big secret?”

Contractor: “You know why. Because if this gets out, the government is betraying the American people.”
