James O’Keefe sprung a trap on one limousine driver dropping off migrants at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, brazenly asking the man about his business of picking up individuals who crossed the southern border and helping them board flights to other parts of the country.
O’Keefe, who earlier this year left his founding company Veritas to establish O’Keefe Media Group, chased down a chartered bus as it was pulling into Phoenix Airport, asking departing passengers if they were migrants before making his way to the driver.
“Are you dropping off migrants at the airport?” O’Keefe asks.
“Why?” replied the driver.
“Because I’m an investigative journalist. I’m an investigating reporter. A lot of the airline people here are talking about buses pulling up to the airport. Are those migrants you just dropped off?”
“Yes,” the driver confirms.
The back and forth goes on for several minutes as the driver asks O’Keefe what he’s investigating and why airline staffers are reportedly upset about the drop-offs.
“They’re upset because of the hygiene. Hygiene on the airplanes and there are concerns, health concerns,” O’Keefe explains.
“You might want to take that up with the city or the state,” the driver replies.
Asked who he worked for, the driver identified his company as Jet Limousine but wouldn’t disclose his name, who hired his company, or where he was meeting migrants to pick them up. The video may leave viewers with more questions than answers about the ongoing attempts at the border to deal with transporting record-breaking numbers of migrants.

On Monday Texas officials reported that migrant crossings broke a single-day record as more than 12,600 individuals crossed into the U.S. in search of asylum. The crossings came the same day as another 3,000 individuals arrived through the Arizona border, and homeland security officials reported that detainment facilities in the areas were operating at 260% capacity.
In response to the crisis, Texas Governor Greg Abbott and other Republicans have chartered buses and airplanes to send migrants to sanctuary cities like Chicago and New York, both of which have become overwhelmed as liberal politicians attempt to welcome tens of thousands of new arrivals at the expense of American citizens. Over 100 Democrats have signed on to an open letter slamming President Joe Biden for failing to stem the flow of migrants into the U.S., fearing the crisis could cost their party the White House next year.
