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.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers working at the Otay Mesa Commercial Facility discovered $18 million dollars’ worth of methamphetamine hidden within a shipment of squash.

Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) revealed in a press release on Monday, at approximately 6:47 a.m.,that CBP officers encountered a 44-year-old male driving a commercial tractor-trailer with a shipment manifested for squash. The driver, a valid border crossing card holder, was referred for further examination by CBP officers along with the tractor-trailer and shipment.

Non-intrusive scanning technology was utilized to conduct a full scan of the tractor trailer which showed irregularities and CBP officers requested a CBP human and narcotics detection canine. The canine team responded and alerted officers to the presence of narcotics.

A total of 1,419 packages concealed within the shipment of squash was discovered and extracted. The narcotics were tested and identified as methamphetamine with a total weight of 11,469 pounds with an estimated street value of $18,350,400.

“Our officers’ commitment to duty, excellence, and the safety of our nation is truly commendable. These results serve as an outstanding display of effectiveness in thwarting the illegal importation of narcotics,” stated Rosa E. Hernandez, Otay Mesa Area Port Director. “Their exceptional efforts truly embody the highest standards of service.”

The seizures are part of Operation Apollo, a holistic counter-fentanyl effort that began on October 26, 2023 in southern California, and expanded to Arizona on April 10, 2024, the CBP release reveals. Operation Apollo focuses on intelligence collection and partnerships, and utilizes local CBP field assets augmented by federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial partners to boost resources, increase collaboration, and target the smuggling of fentanyl into the United States.

The CDC states that more than 150 people die every day from drug overdoses related to synthetic opioids derived from fentanyl.
