Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX) appeared on “The Sara Carter Show “Thursday to talk about the latest developments in the border crisis. While he wasn’t allowed into a DEA intelligence facility in El Paso, Texas recently, he told Sara what he’s seeing in other immigration facilities.

About a month ago, Babin visited the Donna facility in Rio Grande, Texas, just on the opposite side of El Paso. “It was a facility that had a maximum capacity of 250 people,” Babin said. “5,700 kids were in this facility.”

There has been an uptick in illegal immigration overall, especially for children. The Department of Homeland Security recently began giving children exemptions to the Title 42 public health order, letting them into the country despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Lately, their situation is beginning to look more and more like “child abuse” according to Babin.

“Where are the democrats that shed tears and gave these impassioned speeches on the floor of the House of Representatives about how cruel and inhumane the previous administration was?” Babin said.

“Are you starting to think that those were crocodile tears?” Sara asked.

Babin also visited the Fort Bliss facility. The facility received its first 500 unaccompanied migrant children at the end of March. Now, Babin says they have almost 5,000 there too. “They don’t even have surveillance cameras, even around the facility there,” the Texas lawmaker said.

“You are 100% right when you call this policy, child abuse,” Carter said.

DHS Secretary Mayorkas Says We Cannot Remove ‘11 Million Undocumented Individuals’ Unlawfully in U.S.

Troubling details were unearthed during the questioning of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas by the Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-IA). Grassley asked Mayorkas about a DHS memo from September 30 which reads: “The fact an individual is a removable noncitizen will not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them.”

“Does that reasoning apply to the [1.2] million illegal immigrants who have received due process and been given a final order of removal by an immigration judge?” Grassley asked Mayorkas.

“We cannot remove 1.2 million individuals, nor can we remove more than 11 million undocumented individuals, individuals who are unlawfully present in the United States, who might not have final orders of removal” Mayorkas answered.

Mayorkas also stated that he had issued the due process policy after drawing on “tremendous experience not only as a member of the Department of Homeland Security but as a federal prosecutor.”

Grassley pressed Mayorkas, asking, “should any of them be removed?”

“Of course,” Mayorkas said. “I do believe that individuals who pose a public safety threat, who pose a national security threat, who pose a border security threat, should be removed, and we should be smart and effective in our use of resources, and we should focus on the well-being of our communities and prioritize individuals for removal.”

In his opening statements, Grassley addressed Mayorkas and stated, “When you allow the ACLU and open-borders immigration activists rather than career law enforcement professionals to dictate the terms of your immigration and border policies, then you shouldn’t be surprised when record-shattering numbers of people start showing up at the border to take advantage of that.”

Grassley continued, “When you run DHS like it’s an ‘Abolish ICE’ fan club, you shouldn’t be surprised when you have an illegal immigration crisis on your hands.”
