Migrants tell Sara Carter about their harrowing journey to the border

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.

DHS Secretary Mayorkas Says We Cannot Remove ‘11 Million Undocumented Individuals’ Unlawfully in U.S.

Troubling details were unearthed during the questioning of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas by the Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-IA). Grassley asked Mayorkas about a DHS memo from September 30 which reads: “The fact an individual is a removable noncitizen will not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them.”

“Does that reasoning apply to the [1.2] million illegal immigrants who have received due process and been given a final order of removal by an immigration judge?” Grassley asked Mayorkas.

“We cannot remove 1.2 million individuals, nor can we remove more than 11 million undocumented individuals, individuals who are unlawfully present in the United States, who might not have final orders of removal” Mayorkas answered.

Mayorkas also stated that he had issued the due process policy after drawing on “tremendous experience not only as a member of the Department of Homeland Security but as a federal prosecutor.”

Grassley pressed Mayorkas, asking, “should any of them be removed?”

“Of course,” Mayorkas said. “I do believe that individuals who pose a public safety threat, who pose a national security threat, who pose a border security threat, should be removed, and we should be smart and effective in our use of resources, and we should focus on the well-being of our communities and prioritize individuals for removal.”

In his opening statements, Grassley addressed Mayorkas and stated, “When you allow the ACLU and open-borders immigration activists rather than career law enforcement professionals to dictate the terms of your immigration and border policies, then you shouldn’t be surprised when record-shattering numbers of people start showing up at the border to take advantage of that.”

Grassley continued, “When you run DHS like it’s an ‘Abolish ICE’ fan club, you shouldn’t be surprised when you have an illegal immigration crisis on your hands.”
