In an exclusive report from the Texas border for “Hannity“, journalist Sara Carter spoke directly with multiple agents who were shocked at statements made by our Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas in a House committee hearing on Wednesday.
The agents also have a very strong message: illegal migrants should not be entrusting their lives to Mexican cartels.
“It’s incredible,” Carter told Hannity. “A lot of agents have been stunned by his statements.” In the hearing, Mayorkas said the greatest terrorist-related threat comes from “domestic violent extremism” rather than other threats such as those one a terror watchlist or criminals and terrorists who are being apprehending when attempting to cross the border in the U.S.
“I’ve been o the phone with ICE officers, as well as Border Patrol agents who really cannot believe what Alejandro Mayorkas is saying” said Carter.
“Many of them have called for his resignation. So this is certainly not going to end here and lawmakers are certainly going to continue to challenge him and the Biden administration in the upcoming months,” she said.
Those sentiments were echoed in the hearing by several questioners, including Rep. Clay Higgins, R-La., who also went further and pledged support for impeachment proceedings against Mayorkas if the GOP wins back the House.
“I ask you as a man: own this thing,” Higgins entreated the secretary, adding that his handling of the border crisis is causing “disintegration of our national sovereignty.”
Carter also interviewed Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz, who urged migrants not to put their lives in smugglers’ hands:
“[Cartels] aren’t taking into consideration that this is human life, and they’re going to put them in dangerous conditions whether the back of a tractor-trailer, crossing the Rio Grande river at night with small children, or whether it’s putting them in a train car,” Ortiz said.

NYC Mayor Adams’ budget cuts slash total number of police and education funds
“No city should be left to handle a national humanitarian crisis largely on its own, and without the significant and timely support we need from Washington, D.C., today’s budget will only be the beginning,” said New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams about his decision to make budget cuts as a result of the overwhelming migrant crisis.
However, those who will suffer from budget cuts to the city’s services to offset the cost of dealing with the ever-increasing number of migrants are those that are in place to make the city better.
“The cuts will see police freeze hiring and bring the total number of police officers below 30,000. It would further slash the education budget by $1 billion over two years and affect a litany of other agencies” reports Just The News.
Albeit, Adams admitted: “In all my time in government, this is probably one of the most painful exercises I’ve gone through.” More than 110,000 migrants have arrived in New York City over the past year, including roughly 13,000 sent from Texas by GOP Governor Greg Abbott as part of his ongoing bussing plan to send new arrivals to the U.S. to sanctuary cities.
However, similar to other leaders of sanctuary cities, Adams is unwilling to put his money where his mouth is. In September, Adams warned that the crisis would “destroy New York City” and begged the federal government to pay for his mess.
“I’m gonna tell you something, New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this,” Adams said at the time. “The federal government needs to do its job. We need the federal government, the Congress members, the Senate and the president to do their job: close the borders,” said Adams’ advisor Ingrid Lewis Martin insisted in early October. “And until you close the borders, you need to come on with a full-on decompression strategy where you can take all of our migrants and move them through our 50 states.”
