The new images that surfaced late last week of the horrifying conditions at a Donna, Tex Customs and Border Patrol facility spurred lawmakers and federal law enforcement officials into action. The news came just three days after Sara A. Carter broke the story about the Donna, Tex facility live on Hannity.
A whistleblowers email obtained by Carter revealed the “dangerous” and deplorable conditions at the facility for both the children, civilian workers and the law enforcement officials charged with taking care of the facility.
The images were first tweeted out by Sen.Ted Cruz Friday. It revealed the severe overcrowding and unclean, unsafe conditions. Cruz called it “a humiliation” and “public health crisis.”
“The CBP facility in Donna, Texas is a tragic superspreader event caused by the Biden admin,” Cruz tweeted Friday. “Per CBP, the Donna facility has a 10% positivity rate. Roughly 4000 aliens are cramped together into cages.”
Several GOP senators traveled to Donna, Tex. to see the conditions and to tour the border area. Cruz tweeted out another video of human traffickers yelling at the senator from Mexico as they moved to enter the United States.
A delegation of 18 lawmakers led by Cruz demanded entry into the Donna facility after Carter released a whistleblower email she obtained. The letter called the holding building “extremely unsafe and unhealthy for the detainees, agents, and civilian workforce.”
“The overcrowding is inhumane, especially for the children,” the letter continued. “Pod 3A is designed to hold 80 people and on this day we have 694 unaccompanied children with two agents maintaining custody. That is 867% of the stated capacity of this detention space.”
“The agents cannot possibly provide for the care, health, and safety of aliens in our custody, nor can we reasonably do so for ourselves,” the email reads.
Carter has recently spent time covering the growing migration crisis in Texas and Arizona. She is reporting on the unraveling situation.
“[These children] have been through enough already,” Carter told Hannity Tuesday. “Some of these children are as young as 4, 7 years old. Some of them have traveled all alone, across three countries, to get here to the United States.”

Migrants sick of waiting, surge border after judge temporarily blocks Biden from revoking Title 42
Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens tweeted recently, on May 17, that agents under his command apprehended 2,849 migrants last weekend. However, as migrants no longer want to wait for Title 42 to end, they have surged the border.
In a Breitbart exclusive, the media outlet reported the “number will be eclipsed as it appears the total could approach 4,000 this weekend.” Unfortunately, “the migrants did not appear to know or understand that the Title 42 will not end on Monday due to a federal court order. They expressed they were simply tired of waiting” the report adds.
Between April 1st and May 15 of this year, approximately 513,000 migrants illegally crossed the southern border.
Breitbart notes “whether Title 42 ends or not, migrants say they are tired of waiting and surged across the Rio Grande into the Eagle Pass, Texas, area of operations. As many as 3,600 crossed so far this weekend — eclipsing last weekend’s total of just over 2,800 migrant apprehensions in the Del Rio Sector — according to a source operating within U.S. Customs and Border Protection.”
In just a couple of hours on Sunday evening, agents apprehended more than 700 migrants. Agents identified majority of the migrants as Honduran nationals, and some as Colombian.
One source told Breitbart resources were not available to transport migrants from the border to the processing station. It also appears the NGOs who regularly shelter the migrants are overloaded as migrants are reportedly being dropped off at an Eagle Pass Stripes convenience store.
“The crossings are not without danger. On Saturday, seven migrants were swept off their feet in the middle of the night forcing Border Patrol agents to jump into action to save their lives” Breitbart Texas reported. Those seven were lucky, whereas the bodies of three migrants were recovered at the Del Rio Sector.
