Sara Carter illustrated on Sunday her encounters with unaccompanied migrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border on her recent trips there.

The investigative columnist told Fox News program “The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton” that, based on her interactions at the border, the migrants arriving there as part of the recent surge made the journey because of President Joe Biden’s immigration policy and messaging.

“There’s nothing more heartbreaking than when you run into a group of migrant children,” Carter said during a segment on the program Sunday evening.

“A young girl I ran into was 13 years old, the youngest in the group was four years old, 16-year-old boys, 14-year-old boys—and they traveled over three months, alone, on a journey that was so dangerous,” she recanted. “They said that some of the people they traveled with had actually lost their lives.”

Coming from Honduras, the children made the perilous northward trek to the United States, Carter reported, “because they had been told—and they absolutely believe—that Biden had opened the borders for them, that they would not be returned.”

“And frankly, they were right,” the journalist added, then touched on Biden reversing former President Donald Trump‘s immigration policy.

“Biden said in early February that he was ‘eliminating bad policy,’ he was saying he was ‘eliminating’ [former President Donald] Trump’s ‘bad policy,'” Carter told host Steve Hilton. “The message was loud and clear throughout Central America; and the human traffickers, as well as the drug cartels, take advantage of that.”

“And when you have terrible foreign policy and terrible messaging,” she concluded, “that’s what they do—and what we’re seeing now is a result of that.”

The first month of 2023 at the southern border is already looking bleak; just take a look at the numbers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso, Texas have seized over 500 pounds of hard drugs in January alone.

Additionally, the agency apprehended 62 people they were able to identify as having outstanding arrest warrants. Among the criminals were sex offenders.

The devastating numbers are not surprising, given that in December, the El Paso mayor declared a sate of emergency “after record numbers of people were released onto city streets and sidewalks by the Biden administration” reports The Center Square.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also “sent 400 National Guard troops to restore order and provide humanitarian assistance” adds the media outlet. Border Patrol data showed in December, 55,766 illegal foreign nationals were apprehended in the El Paso Sector.

There were also 32,632 known and recorded gotaways in December, meaning they were able to evade getting captured by law and immigration officials. law enforcement officers told The Center Square that despite the skyrocket high numbers, “these seizures and apprehensions represent a fraction of the amount of people and drugs being trafficked to the southern border between ports of entry.”
