Sara A. Carter spoke with migrants as they crossed the southern border into the U.S. and recounted their harrowing experiences on a ‘Hannity’ exclusive episode Wednesday.

A migrant family told Carter they have been traveling for 8 weeks to reach the U.S. border and experienced several hardships throughout their journey. A woman told Carter that it was “by the grace of God” that she made it to the border without being raped.

Carter asked the migrant family why they took such extraordinary risks to travel to the U.S. and they said they believe the Biden administration has opened the border and wants them to come.

Carter also spoke with migrant parents who had children that fell ill during their journey. Carter said many kids suffered fevers, undernourishment and exhaustion.

Carter asked National Border Patrol Council Vice President Chris Cabrera what his message would be to President Biden and Vice President Harris about the border crisis.

“It’s really not worth a child’s life,” Cabrera told Carter. “I think one lost child is one too many and some of these kids aren’t making the journey. How much is enough?”

The Biden administration has launched an effort to open 11,000 emergency beds for migrant children in response to the historic number of unaccompanied children entering the border.

Border Patrol agents expect to apprehend more than 16,000 unaccompanied children in March.

There are no plans for President Biden to visit the border.

According to attorney Liam Schwartz, head of the Labor and Corporate Immigration Department at the Tel Aviv-based law firm of Goldfarb, Seligman, a new policy by the U.S. Immigration Authority aimed at Israelis seeks detailed explanations about military service, potentially to identify involvement in war crimes or other serious offenses.

“The U.S. Immigration Authority’s new policy is extremely worrisome,” Schwartz said. “Its impact on Israelis could be broad, affecting areas such as relocation for work, academic studies, and family reunification.”

This policy extends beyond green card applications. Israelis applying for visas at U.S. embassies outside Israel may also face rigorous questioning. Y Net News discusses the case of Yuval, a senior manager at a high-tech company in Silicon Valley, who recently received a surprising letter from the U.S. Immigration Authority regarding his green card application. The letter requested detailed information about his service in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) from 2005 to 2008, raising concerns about a potential shift in U.S. immigration policy towards Israeli applicants.

The letter demanded an affidavit under oath addressing several specific questions about Yuval’s military service. These included queries about his participation in combat, command roles, guarding detainees, and the use of weapons or explosives. Yuval must provide satisfactory answers within 87 days to avoid deportation.

Yuval expressed shock at the detailed nature of the questions, noting that he had previously provided basic information about his military service when applying for his work visa two years ago. “I feel as if questions were copied from the Office of the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague,” he remarked.

While cooperation with U.S. authorities regarding military service is necessary for visa or green card applications, Schwartz highlighted a conflict with Israeli laws on military confidentiality. He suggested that in some cases, it might be more practical for applicants to consider leaving the U.S.
