Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas will visit the southern border Friday for a briefing on the influx of the unaccompanied children arriving at the border.

Due to Covid-19 precautions, the trip will not be open to the media and there will be no post-tour press brief.

According to a press release, Mayorkas will arrive in El Paso, Texas with a bipartisan delegation of Senators, including Se. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) to view operations and receive a briefing on the processing, shelter and transfer of unaccompanied children arriving at the border.

“We’ll be looking at some of the issues including this huge problem with unaccompanied kids coming across the border,” Portman said to reporters Thursday. “Those numbers have increased even more dramatically to the point that right now we have a true crisis in the detention facilities … We’re gonna talk about that tomorrow and we’ll see some of those facilities.”

The announcement comes after the Biden administration’s reported gag order on border officials.

Sara Carter joined Steve Hilton on Fox News Sunday night to describe something so terrifying, it ‘even frightens the Democratic Party.”

People from all over the world are crossing our borders and they are not being vetted. People from “over 150 nations have already crossed this border.”

Violence is escalating on the border and Carter does not expect it to slow down. Carter adds 1.7 million migrants entered the U.S. in the last fiscal year “and being apprehended. So we expect a lot more people coming in this year.”

This is “just the first year of the Biden administration. What can happen in the next three years literally frightens me.” Carter concludes it’s so drastic, “it even frightens the Democratic Party.”
