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.”

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.”
