Tuesday evening, an unruly guest at Atlanta’s airport was a Republican state senator from Georgia who was attempting to obtain documentation of unlawful immigrants who were utilizing the facility.
The Daily Caller reports that Georgia Freedom Caucus vice chairman State Sen. Colton Moore stated he visited Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta after receiving information from a whistleblower regarding the presence of unauthorized immigration at the airport.
He discovered a room occupied by unauthorized immigrants who were being guarded by what appeared to be a United States soldier.
“Migrants discovered in a ‘hidden room’ at the Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International airport, guarded by a U.S. service member. The footage was taken by Republican state Sen. Colton Moore who received a tip that migrants were flowing through the facility,” conservative commentator Colin Rugg posted on X.
The video depicts a group of individuals, predominantly males, seated in a room while others enter and exit. One individual Moore engaged in conversation with identified himself as a volunteer for Team Libertad, an organization that assists in facilitating travel connections for undocumented immigrants.

“We’re all getting them flights to where they need to be,” the man said.
“These are just recently documented travelers getting released from ICE getting to where they need to be,” the man said, referring to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
“There’s people that, they get dropped off here from ICE detention with no help,” the man said.
While Moore had been recording the conversation on video, the situation escalated when he requested to record again and raised his phone for a better angle.
“Actually, you cannot get a video,” the man said as a voice from the room called out, “You’re not allowed.”
Moore said the uniformed man eventually took his phone away to prevent further filming.
“The room was absolutely packed with people from every continent on this planet,” Moore told the Daily Caller.
“When I took my phone and reached it up above the guy to get a better view of all the illegals in the room, that’s when chaos broke out. That’s when the U.S. Army guy took the phone,” he said.
“It was a scrimmage between he and I in order to get the phone back. And then he proceeded to tell me to get out of there and just made a real big scene out of it.”
A representative of the Georgia National Guard said it was “not aware of the incident in question or any such activity involving the Georgia National Guard at the airport.”
