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.

Congressman Biggs to Unveil Impeachment Articles Against DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas
On Wednesday afternoon, Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) will unveil his 118th Congress impeachment articles against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Biggs, along with dozens of Republican congressional members, will hold a press conference at The House Triangle in the United States Capitol.
At least 15 members of Congress will provide remarks advocating for the impeachment of Secretary Mayorkas. Congressman Biggs was the first member of Congress to introduce articles of impeachment against Mayorkas, as early as August 2021.
The escalating border crisis during the Biden administration has led Biggs and other members to conclude Mayorkas’ “dereliction of duty in protecting our nation’s borders constituted high crimes and misdemeanors.”
In late December, The Washington Examiner reported on Biggs’ cited three examples of how he said Mayorkas broke the law.
“First, Secretary Mayorkas has failed to maintain operational control of the border as required under the law,” he said, quoting the Secure Fence Act of 2006’s definition of operational control as “the prevention of all unlawful entries into the United States, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics, and other contraband.”
He added: “Second, he may have lied to Congress when he testified that he was maintaining operational control of the border.
The third illegal action, Biggs said, was how Mayorkas had not detained illegal immigrants and instead released more than 1 million people into the U.S.
“The law is clear illegal aliens shall be detained,” Biggs said.
