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.

For those who can’t comprehend the magnitude of what the Biden administration’s poor border policies have done, the nearly 7.3 million migrants who have illegally crossed the southwest border  on Biden’s watch is a greater amount than the population of 36 individual states.

A Fox News analysis looked at data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), which shows the total number of southwest land border encounters since Biden assumed office in 2021 is 7,298,486. The CBP already reported 961,537 border encounters in the current fiscal year, which runs from October through September.

Fox News reports:

If the current pace of illegal immigration does not slow down, fiscal year 2024 will break last year’s record of 2,475,669 southwest border encounters — a number that by itself exceeds the population of New Mexico, a border state.

That is larger than the population of 36 U.S. states, including Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

The analysis found that compared to the largest U.S. states, the 7.3 million number is about 18.7% of California’s population of 39 million; 23.9% of the state of Texas and its 31 million residents; 32.3% of the population of Florida; and 37.3% of New York. It’s more than half the size of Pennsylvania, Illinois and Ohio.

Were the number of illegal immigrants who entered the U.S. under President Biden gathered together to found a city, it would be the second-largest city in America after New York. And the total does not include an estimated additional 1.8 million known “gotaways” who evaded law enforcement, which would make it bigger than New York.

This unprecedented surge in illegal immigration isn’t an accident. It is the result of deliberate policy choices by the Biden administration,” said Eric Ruark, Director of Research for Numbers USA, a nonprofit that advocates for immigration restrictions.
