Sara Carter went after White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Friday for labeling the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border a “crisis” instead of a “challenge,” accusing the Biden administration of lying about the situation, during a recent episode of her podcast “The Sara Carter Show.”

“I don’t want to sound like a broken record here, but at what point does it become a crisis?” a reporter asked Psaki at a White House press briefing, in a clip that Carter played on “The Sara Carter Show” podcast.
“I would say I don’t think we need to meet your bar of what we need to call it,” Psaki replied. “We had the secretary of homeland security yesterday conveying it as a challenge.”
“We’ve provided numbers publicly about how serious that challenge is,” Psaki continued. “We of course, because we are approaching this humanely, and we are approaching this in a way where we will keep the children safe and in a great break with the past administration, and because we’re doing this at a time of COVID, that is even more challenge challenging because most of these facilities are at 40% capacity, hence the number of beds that are being being utilized.”
“But again,” she added, “we’re going to approach this without labeling, we’re going to approach this with policy, with humanity, and with a focus on what we can do to keep these kids safe.”

“Oh my gosh, a ‘challenge,’ a ‘challenge.’ She doesn’t want you to know the truth. This administration is […] stunning. It’s stunning how they are consistently lying to the American public,” Carter charged.
“So while they have made you feel so horrible and berate anybody who doesn’t wear a mask, they’re letting people just stroll on into the United States—by the way, without identification on them, I saw it myself. In fact, the majority of people that come in don’t have identification on them,” the journalist claimed, referencing her trip last week to the border. “I saw a lot of people, and the people that I ran into were from Honduras, and El Salvador, and Guatemala. But there are so many people are arriving from other parts of the world.”

20 states suing Biden administration over migrant parole program
President Joe Biden has expanded a humanitarian parole program leading to a significant increase of migrants entering the United States illegally each month. As a result, 20 states have geared up to sue the Biden administration.
Tuesday, 20 Republican states and conservative legal group America First Legal, announced their plans to sue the White House over the legality of the administration’s parole program. The program “allows up to 30,000 migrants from Haiti, Nicaragua, Cuba, and Venezuela into the homeland each month” reports Foreign Desk News.
Reports shoot the lawsuit was filed by Texas, the America First Legal and the other states in the Southern District of Texas in hopes to block the parole program.
Foreign Desk News reports of the history:
In October, the administration announced the program for Venezuelans, allowing a limited number to fly directly into the U.S. as long as they had not entered illegally, had a sponsor already, and passed certain checks. In early January, President Biden announced that the program would expand to include Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Cubans, allowing up to 30,000 a month into the U.S.
The program also allows migrants to receive work permits and a two-year authorization to live in the U.S. and was announced alongside an expansion of Title 42 expulsions to include those nationalities.
In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs argue that the program is unlawful given the “exceptionally limited” parole power the federal government has, adding that they have up to 360,000 migrants that could be allowed into the homeland a year.
The suit’s focus is on the limits placed on parole by Congress, saying that the authority is to be used on a “case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit.”
“Every state in America, especially border states like Texas, is being crushed by the impacts of illegal immigration,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement to Fox News Digital.
“The Biden open borders agenda has created a humanitarian crisis that is increasing crime and violence in our streets, overwhelming local communities, and worsening the opioid crisis. This unlawful amnesty program, which will invite hundreds of thousands of aliens into the U.S. every year, will only make this immigration crisis drastically worse.”
