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.

“The border is secure” says Vice President Kamala Harris; yet almost two dozen states are sending up to 2,500 National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border. The assistance is aimed at helping federal immigration officials handle the border crisis.

“Groups that support tougher immigration restrictions say the deployment of the National Guard troops will help overburdened federal agencies deal with the surge of illegal immigration”, reports the Center Square.

The deployments were requested by the U.S. Department of Defense and Republican-led states like Kentucky, South Carolina and Arkansas, as well as Democratic-led states such as Rhode Island and Illinois will all be sending assistance. Other states sending troops include Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico, DOD officials said.

“Several other states – Mississippi, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Oregon, Utah and Washington – will be providing National Guard aviation support for border operations, according to the department.”

“The U.S. Virgin Islands has also committed National Guard troops to the mission, which is being overseen by the U.S. Northern Command.”

The Center Square reports:

The troops were requested by DOD to assist U.S. Border Patrol in dealing with a surge of illegal trafficking of people, weapons and drugs into the country. The troops will work only in support missions, a Defense Department spokesman said, and are prohibited under federal law from detaining undocumented migrants or others caught crossing into the United States illegally…

…The U.S. Border Patrol has apprehended migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border more than 1.8 million times since October, breaking previous records, according to the agency. The Center Square, through its sources, reported in August the number of illegal entries is nearly 5 million since Biden began to occupy the White House in January 2020.
