EXCLUSIVE: Sara Carter speaks to Border Agents ‘Stunned’ at Mayorkas Statements

Alejandro Mayorkas

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.

    In the frame of mind (demented as that is) of this administration, Mayorkas was being truthful; they ARE successfully managing the border, in that they are managing, facilitating, and accelerating the total and intentional destruction of the United States as founded.
    Everything they are doing, and not doing, is by design. And this administration, and their sycophantic supporters everywhere, know full well that NOTHING will be done to them to stop it. They know that there is, will never be, a scintilla of accountability for their treason.
    What are you prepared to do?

    Add Mayorkas’ name to the already long list of kippah-gang members united in an effort to reduce the USA to a simple entity of a globalist NWO and you’ll have the answer. Of Cuban origin Mayorkas is nevertheless a jew like Schitf, Schumer, Nadler, Feinstein, Murkowsky, Rosenstein, Weisman, Feinstein, Cohen, Bolton, Yovanovitch, Vindman, Soros, Zuckerberg, Singer, the former AG Barr (being a convert doesn’t make a jew a lesser jew) and the present one… and so many more… do you get the picture?

    With conditions the way they are in this country under Joe Biden’s Administration, we can not afford more people coming into this country, especially the criminals. Where will food come from to feed them when we cannot find enough food in the grocery stores to feed our own? Send all the illegals back and forbid anymore to come across the border.

    Biden should be Impeached for failure to Defend the Country. We are being Invaded and these Clowns aren’t doing anything to stop it. The 101st Airborne Division and the 82nd. could stop this in a week. These people won’t walk through machine gun fire and all we have now is Agents helping them climb up the bank of the Rio Grand.

    Biden should be in Fed. Prison and/or have his Citizenship revoked and then deported to China and/or Russia along with the rest of the DNC hierarchy.

    Trump will be the next Pres. of this Country but I hope someone in Washington will have the Guts to stand up and Charge Biden with Treason for what he has NOT done which is to Defend this Country from Invasion.

    He seems to come to Congress intentionally ignorant of any facts. The “I’ll get back to you” is his only response.

    My comment is in reference to what I recently wrote a senator. It is just one of the issues, which I speak to all who will listen. There are many demonic so called leaders who have been turned over to a reprobate mind set. In reference to Iran, and Israel, and in reference to playing both sides of the coin. In reference to what true leadership from God is all about. The love of money is the root of all evil.For many years their has been great corruption some by the highest so called leaders and we wonder where is the justice in all they have done because of wanting all power in reference to a one world order. Then when we do get a man in office who truly does care about America we know what has taken place. When a so called leader, and most others in that party don’t care about the one’s really hurting just like Jesus said take care of the widow, the orphan, and the poor, but instead trying to make their own agenda about trying to change our nation by letting all kinds of people cross our boarders so they can stay in power, so they can make our nation a socialist country, and what eventually becomes just like a baby being aborted and we wonder why all these are being allowed to happen, our God is not pleased by what certain people are trying to do to bring about their own power, money, and greed. Just remember who in the world would ever thought America instead of caring what the Lord has spoken, and showed trying to show is love, and mercy, and grace not only to our nation but many other countries,but our nation, instead of helping God has made it by our so called leaders a den of thieves. We better wake up before it is to late.We better be willing to vote for the one’s that truly care about the innocent in the womb, who truly is not ours but belong to God,he just gives them to us to nurture, and take care of until they grow up.Many of our so called leaders need a true lesson about leadership.

Report: Denver area migrants cost $340 million to shelter, educate

A report by the free-market Common Sense Institute found the more than 42,000 migrants who have arrived in Denver over the last year and a half have cost the region as much as $340 million. The city of Denver, local school districts, and the region’s health-care system have spent between $216 million and $340 million combined to shelter, feed, clothe, and educate the migrants, and to provide them with emergency medical care.

National Review explains the report builds off a previous report from March that conservatively found that the migrants had cost the region at least $170 million. “Costs are never localized,” said DJ Summers, the institute’s research director. “They expand outward.”

Democratic leaders are being blamed for their welcoming posture toward immigrants generally, and their sanctuary-city policies, which curtail law enforcement’s ability to cooperate with federal immigration agents. Since late December 2022, at least 42,269 migrants — or “newcomers” as Denver leaders call them — have arrived in the city, adds National Review.

The Common Sense Institute report found that the migrant crisis has also hit local emergency rooms hard with extensive expenses. Since December 2022, migrants have made more than 16,000 visits to metro emergency departments. At an estimated cost of about $3,000 per visit, that has resulted in nearly $48 million in uncompensated care.

Summers said those costs are “stressing existing health care organizations,” but they also indirectly hit residents in their pocketbooks through increased insurance prices.

Metro school districts have endured the biggest financial hit — estimated between $98 million and $222 million — according to the Common Sense Institute report. The large range in costs is due to the difficulties researchers had identifying exactly how many new foreign students are tied to the migrant crisis.

The researchers found that since December 2022, 15,725 foreign students have enrolled in local schools. Of those, 6,929 have come from the five countries most closely identified with the migrant crisis — Venezuela, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

On average, it costs a little over $14,000 to educate a student for a year in a Denver-area public school, but Summers said migrant students likely cost more.

“They have transportation needs that are different, they have acculturation needs that are going to be different, language assistance needs that are going to be different,” he said. “Many of them might need to get up to speed in curriculum. They might need outside tutoring.”

Earlier this year, Colorado lawmakers approved $24 million in state funding to help school districts statewide plug budget holes related to the migrant students.

Summers said the updated Common Sense Institute tally is likely still missing some costs related to the ongoing migrant crisis.

“There are definitely additional costs. We just don’t have a great way to measure them just yet,” he said, noting legal fees, crime, and unreported business and nonprofit expenses.
