Sara Carter interviewed house minority leader Kevin McCarthy on “The Sara Carter Show” podcast Thursday about the border crisis.
McCarthy sent a letter to President Joe Biden on Friday requesting a meeting to discuss the rising numbers of unaccompanied migrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border and has yet to receive a response.
“I sent him the letter asking for a meeting, no response whatsoever,” McCarthy told Carter.
According to McCarthy’s letter, 117,000 unaccompanied alien children will be crossing into the border this year.
At the height of the Obama administration’s unaccompanied minor crisis from 2013, there were over 66,000 unaccompanied minors that were accounted for that year, Carter noted.
“The worst part about this, it’s created by Biden, this is Biden’s border crisis,” McCarthy said. “Had he not reversed the actions of the last administration, we wouldn’t be here today.”
“He’s the migrants’ president, he’s encouraging this to happen,” McCarthy added.
Carter noted that the violence at the border has increased tremendously since Biden took office.
“[Border Patrol agents] actually said the policies that were put in place during the Trump administration mitigated a lot of this of this disaster, especially in the last year of President Trump in office, they noticed a huge decrease because people knew they weren’t going to get away with it,” Carter said.
“It’s unbelievable how quickly the border has become a crisis because of the new administration,” McCarthy said. “100,000 is an unbelievable number, just in that first month. What do we think it’s going to be three months from now?”
McCarthy will be traveling to the border with a committee and is hoping President Biden will meet with him when he returns to discuss solutions to the crisis.
“I hope the President will meet with us when we come back. Because we have solutions for the problems. And we want to make sure our borders secure,” McCarthy told Carter.
McCarthy is urging his fellow Americans to speak up and take action against the new administration’s rules.
“Don’t stay quiet. Speak up right now,” McCarthy said. “Follow what you’re doing and you get educated on it. Call the White House. Call the speaker. Tell them you want action taken on this. You don’t want it to continue to be the way it is.”
“There is a crisis at the border, no matter what the Biden administration is trying to say to you, they are not telling you, the American people, the truth. They’re just not telling you the truth,” Carter said.

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.”
