Kevin McCarthy vowed to take action at the border, potentially starting with holding congressional hearings at the border. Such an action would force Democrats to actually visit the border and see it for themselves. The White House, however, called the border visit by Republican lawmakers a “political stunt.”

Sara Carter joined human smuggling sting operation along the border with multiple agencies and local law enforcement. Carter joined officials on an exclusive ride-a-long with agents where she was told about the immense increase in human trafficking.

One agent explains that the federal government is completely ignoring the crisis at the border. Carter tells Fox News’ Sean Hannity that when she was in Mexico City just last week, officials there told her the crisis was hard to contain because migrants are coming from all over the world and passing through Mexico in hopes of crossing the border into the United States.

The vulnerability of the northern border of the United States is being weaponized in the war on illegal migration. 2023 saw a 240% increase of individuals apprehended from just one year prior. Not only is the border with Canada significantly longer than its border with Mexico, but its ports of entry are often understaffed while the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is forced to prioritize the southern surge.

According to recent data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, in 2023 authorities halted over 12,000 migrants attempting illegal crossings at the Canadian border. The number is a 240% increase from the preceding year when 3,579 individuals were apprehended.

ADN America reports that approximately 70% of the illegal crossings took place along a 295-mile stretch along the northern New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire border called the Swanton Sector.

Chief patrol agent for the sector, Robert Garcia, posted on social media that the 3,100 individuals apprehended were from 55 different countries. 

Garcia wrote “the record-breaking surge of illegal entries from Canada continues in Swanton Sector” and he specifically mentioned that the arrest of 10 Bangladeshi citizens was prompted by a citizen’s report in Champlain, New York.

Surprisingly, ADN reports:

A significant number of those engaging in illegal crossings are Mexicans who exploit the opportunity to fly to Canada without a visa, also avoiding the presence of cartels in their home countries.

Experts suggest that migrants can purchase a $350 one-way plane ticket from Mexico City or Cancun to Montreal or Toronto. This route is perceived as offering a lower likelihood of being turned away compared to those crossing the southern border.
