New York, New York – A New York man refused to let a group of security officers and workers stop him from recording footage of a facility housing illegal aliens on Monday.
The man, who goes by Ely, recorded footage of his encounter, which was then posted on YouTube and later went viral on X (formerly Twitter).
What ensued was a tour de force laden with F words and other colorful language directed at the individuals attempting to violate his constitutional rights. Ely refuses to budge an inch even when they surround him.
Ely is able to turn the tables on the officers in the end and record in peace.
The video clip on X begins with Ely walking up to the facility before being stopped by a supposed security officer who tells him he cannot take footage of inside the facility or outside.
Ely then demands to know the man’s name who responds like a wise guy by asking who he is. This back and forth goes on for a few seconds before another security officer arrives.
This second officer says he cannot stand there while Ely continues to protest. The first officer then sarcastically replies “okay, you win, you win.”
Then the two surround Ely for some reason which confuses Ely. Was this an intimidation tactic?
Perhaps so because another person (perhaps a worker) surrounds the Youtuber as well and claims Ely is on his property which makes him scoff.

The worker tells Ely to talk to officer which Ely objects to. A portly police officer then arrive on scene and informs Ely the man is trying to bait him. This causes Ely to erupt.
I’m about to knock him the f*** out! That’s what I’m about to do!
He then turns to the first security guard and let’s him have it: “Who the f*** do you think you are!” You don’t come to the sidewalk and talk to me like that n*****! You hear me?
Ely then faces all of his haters: “Make sure this is the last you approach a member of the public giving them orders. On the f****ing sidewalk, n*****! Stick to your job!
After the second officer smirks and tell Ely it’s “his job” to tell him to move, Ely fries him: You don’t tell me to f***ing move! Your job is inside, not outside!
