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

Mexico gives 3,000 travel permits for migrants to ‘travel freely’ towards U.S. border
Instead of having some sort of immigration system in place, Mexico is allowing nearly 3,000 migrants to head straight through to the United States border. A migrant caravan arrived at Mexico’s southern border on Friday, and “rather than trying to stop the group, authorities issued permits and allowed them to continue north in a fragmented manner” reports Breitbart.
The travel permits were issued by Mexico’s National Immigration Institute (INM) which give the migrants “30 days to travel freely through the country.” According to INM, the Huixtla, Chiapas office handed out the permits in order to disrupt the caravan.
Breitbart writes: “The move by Mexico’s INM is a direct contrast to prior approaches dating back to the Trump era, where authorities would meet caravans with riot shields and batons.” As recently as last year, human rights activists accused INM agents of using excessive force against migrants.
Last September, “photographs and videos circulated on social media capturing numerous violent clashes” between migrants ad INM, reported Breitbart. “In one, a video shows an INM agent kicking a migrant on the ground, which led to the suspension of two agents and an ongoing investigation into police brutality.”
Human rights activists and liberal media personalities bashed Mexico’s government, claiming President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is doing the bidding of the U.S. by stopping the caravans.
