A Central American human smuggler spoke exclusively and anonymously to investigative journalist Sara Carter about his illicit trade and the true state of the U.S.-Mexico border, which he suggested is controlled by Mexican cartels and not either government at this point.
Carter told Fox News the trafficker voluntarily agreed to the interview in part because even with his role in the open border crisis, he is uncomfortable with the plight of foreign children being smuggled into the United States.
“I am the guy who takes people to the U.S. – immigrants, to be exact,” the man told Carter.
“I like to take the risk of doing it, and I knew that people would get a lot of money out of it.”
The unidentified criminal organization he works for has a pipeline of sorts from El Salvador to the United States, he said, adding it becomes more dangerous when the Mexican cartels get involved farther up the line.
“It’s more risky because once we get to the cartels, they are asking for children, for them to traffic with drugs and everything. So it’s definitely more risky,” he said.
The smuggler said it is “horrific” to see children who get murdered by cartels at times while human cargo in their mass trafficking operations, adding it “really scares them to just see the reality that they can go through.”
When asked whether one political leader or an “all-out-war” would be needed to loosen the grip the cartels have on the United States border under the Biden administration, the smuggler replied: “there’s no way back.”
“They already have so much power. The cartels that he thinks that it’s too late to stop them,” he said.

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’
Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social, “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”
Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”
It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.
Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.
And the escalation of war is visible.
Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.
Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.
Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”
Morning. Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”
F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.
Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
