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.”

Roughly 20 miles northeast of Downtown Houston, Texas, is an entire town where cartels are operating from due to a local developer selling land to border crossers without any paperwork. William ‘Trey’ Harris has been accused of “creating a sprawling illegal migrant town” by “allowing buyers to purchase land without the need to prove income or credit” reports The Daily Mail. 

As a result of selling the plots at Colony Ridge without any documentation, an estimated 75,000 people, primarily illegal immigrants, have been able to buy homes and create a town which The Daily Mail reports has at least four separate cartels operating from. The settlement area is approximately 60 square miles in size, and has been developed by Harris through his company Terrano Houston, which uses Spanish language marketing.

Senior National Security Fellow Todd Bensman claimed Harris has been selling off plots direct to a borrowers for a few hundred dollars without conducting any background checks.

A statement on behalf of the company said: ‘The safety of our communities is our foremost goal, and all of our subdivision plots, roads and other infrastructure are built to code and approved by County engineering teams…Our developments have put the American Dream of home ownership within reach for tens of thousands of middle- and working-class Texas families.”

The statement continues: “In addition to these homes, we are also proud of our efforts to improve local infrastructure and bring businesses to the area, as well as our work with local public and charter schools to improve education for our residents’ children and our work with local law enforcement to enhance public safety.”
