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.”

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.”
