In the video, the man makes a sensational statement: “If you were smart enough you would know who I am, but you are really not smart enough to know ow who I am, but soon you are going to know who I am…”
“If you were smart enough you would know who I am, but you are really not smart enough to know ow who I am, but soon you are going to know who I am…”
Now we know who this illegal immigrant is.

“Movsum Samadov, also know as Movsum Mardan oglu Samadov. He is the chairman of the Islamic Terrorists group Azerbaijani Islamic party. He was sentenced to 12 years after being convicted of trying to overthrow the government. His charges were
•Arms Trafficking and illicit use of weapons
• Criminal premeditation and conspiracy terrorism.
• Treason and sedition
He was convicted October 7th, 2011. He was released January 19th, 2023.” wrote Fields.
It should be noted that Movsum Samedov was arrested in 2011 on charges of preparing a terrorist act and attempting a coup d’état. He was sentenced to 12 years in prison and released in January 2023.
After Fields’ recording gained popularity on social networks, correspondents from American publications “Voice of America” and the Azerbaijani service “Radio Free Europe” contacted Movsum Samedov. However, the former leader of the Azerbaijani Islamists denied the information, accusing its creators of falsification, stating that he is currently in Azerbaijan and could not be on the Mexican-American border as he is banned from leaving the country.
Moreover, Samedov pointed out that the person in the video does not resemble him.
“Look closely, there is very little resemblance, except for the glasses,” he emphasized.
American media found out that the video shared by Sarah Fields was filmed by 1st responders Media, created by a group of people who travel along the southern borders of the United States and photograph migrants illegally crossing the border. Literally the next day after Fields’ fake message came out, on January 24, an X user under the nickname Rayne was the first to refute the authenticity of the widespread message. However, no one paid attention to the veracity of the rebuttal of another American.
Significantly, Fields’ publication appeared amid a heated debate between Republicans and Democrats over protecting the southern borders of the USA.
The US Customs and Border Protection Service declares a historic record: from January 1, 2020, to September 30, 2023, 8.4 million migrants tried to illegally enter the country from Mexico.
Donald Trump, the main opponent of the current US administration and a presidential candidate, assures that if he wins, he will immediately close the border with Mexico and deport millions of illegal immigrants from the country. In Congress, Republicans have linked the proposed aid package for Ukraine and Israel with the demand for strict measures to guard the southern borders. In Texas, the political crisis is still escalating in light of the state governor’s decision to sabotage the American court’s ruling to remove barbed wire from the border. The governor sent troops to the border, trying to prevent the crossing of illegal migrants despite the White House’s ultimatum. Other Republican governors supported him.
This is not the first case when fake news about Azerbaijan is spread in the American segment of the X social network. Last fall, after Hamas’ attack on Israel, radical Islamists published on the X platform a video of “captured Israeli generals.” But in reality, the video depicted leaders of Armenian separatists arrested in Karabakh by Azerbaijani law enforcement agencies.
