Sara Carter gave an exclusive report live from Eagle Pass Friday on ‘Hannity’ to discuss the record numbers of migrants entering the country each day. Fox News reporter Bill Melugin tweeted the breaking news last week:
“NEW: Per CBP sources, there have been 440,000 known gotaways at the border since FY’22 began on October 1st. DHS reports 390,000 known gotaways in all of FY’21. There have now been over 800,000 gotaways snice the beginning of FY’21. That’s bigger than population of Seattle.”
Carter explains to fill-in host Pete Hegseth that “800,000 known gotaways” means “people that they captured on video surveillance coming across the border that they couldn’t apprehend, people that left track marks, large groups, and those are just estimates.”
“There could be far more than that” warns Carter. “800,000 is more than the size of the state of Vermont. It’s more than the size of the state of Wyoming. It’s more than the size of the state of Alaska.”
Carter spoke to Jon Anfinsen, local 2366 National Border Patrol Council President in Del Rio, who said they have never seen numbers like this.
“There used to be weeks where we would see maybe 900 to a thousand for the entire sector in a week and that was busy, that was a busy week for us. But now our station in Eagle Pass are averaging about 700 encounters a day in just that one station” said Anfinsen.

This was in Eagle Pass last week.. it was a nonstop flow of people – mainly men in several 300 to 400 groups pouring across the border. Limited resources and a admin that wants chaos @BPUnion

NYC Mayor Adams’ budget cuts slash total number of police and education funds
“No city should be left to handle a national humanitarian crisis largely on its own, and without the significant and timely support we need from Washington, D.C., today’s budget will only be the beginning,” said New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams about his decision to make budget cuts as a result of the overwhelming migrant crisis.
However, those who will suffer from budget cuts to the city’s services to offset the cost of dealing with the ever-increasing number of migrants are those that are in place to make the city better.
“The cuts will see police freeze hiring and bring the total number of police officers below 30,000. It would further slash the education budget by $1 billion over two years and affect a litany of other agencies” reports Just The News.
Albeit, Adams admitted: “In all my time in government, this is probably one of the most painful exercises I’ve gone through.” More than 110,000 migrants have arrived in New York City over the past year, including roughly 13,000 sent from Texas by GOP Governor Greg Abbott as part of his ongoing bussing plan to send new arrivals to the U.S. to sanctuary cities.
However, similar to other leaders of sanctuary cities, Adams is unwilling to put his money where his mouth is. In September, Adams warned that the crisis would “destroy New York City” and begged the federal government to pay for his mess.
“I’m gonna tell you something, New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this,” Adams said at the time. “The federal government needs to do its job. We need the federal government, the Congress members, the Senate and the president to do their job: close the borders,” said Adams’ advisor Ingrid Lewis Martin insisted in early October. “And until you close the borders, you need to come on with a full-on decompression strategy where you can take all of our migrants and move them through our 50 states.”
