Carter Border Exclusive: Over 800,000 ‘Gotaways’ Have ‘Just Disappeared into the Fabric of America’

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.

Biden Administration to allow 40,000 asylum-seekers per month into US with mobile app

Despite chaos at the border, the Biden administration is still pursuing expansion of a smart phone app which would allow nearly 40,000 asylum-seekers to enter the United States…per month.

“Starting in June, officials will allow more migrants waiting in Mexico to secure an appointment to enter the U.S. through a government phone app known as CBP One, which the Biden administration has transformed into the main gateway to the American asylum system” reports CBS News.

Department of Homeland Security Officials said border agents are preparing to distribute approximately 1,250 appointments per day, or 38,750 per month, to migrants in Mexico. They will then present themselves at ports of entry.

CBS News reports:

The CBP One app allows migrants north of Mexico City to request an appointment to appear at a southern border port of entry, where U.S. officials generally release them with an immigration court hearing in their respective destination. Migrants can fight their deportation in court by seeking asylum.

The app-powered system has been sharply criticized by migrant advocates, who say it penalizes the most destitute migrants who don’t have smartphones or an internet connection. They have also said the app does not allocate nearly enough spots to help the tens of thousands of migrants stranded in Mexico.

However, the app has facilitated “the largest expansion of migrant processing at ports of entry along the southern border in U.S. history” adds CBS News. “Since its use began in January, more than 120,000 migrants have secured appointments to enter the U.S. through CBP One, according to unpublished government figures.”

In addition to the CBP One process and the asylum restriction, the Biden Administration has begun allowing up to 30,000 migrants from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela to fly to the U.S. directly per month if they have American sponsors. In just several months, that program received over 1.5 million applications.
