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.

NYC Mayor Adams’ budget cuts slash total number of police and education funds
“No city should be left to handle a national humanitarian crisis largely on its own, and without the significant and timely support we need from Washington, D.C., today’s budget will only be the beginning,” said New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams about his decision to make budget cuts as a result of the overwhelming migrant crisis.
However, those who will suffer from budget cuts to the city’s services to offset the cost of dealing with the ever-increasing number of migrants are those that are in place to make the city better.
“The cuts will see police freeze hiring and bring the total number of police officers below 30,000. It would further slash the education budget by $1 billion over two years and affect a litany of other agencies” reports Just The News.
Albeit, Adams admitted: “In all my time in government, this is probably one of the most painful exercises I’ve gone through.” More than 110,000 migrants have arrived in New York City over the past year, including roughly 13,000 sent from Texas by GOP Governor Greg Abbott as part of his ongoing bussing plan to send new arrivals to the U.S. to sanctuary cities.
However, similar to other leaders of sanctuary cities, Adams is unwilling to put his money where his mouth is. In September, Adams warned that the crisis would “destroy New York City” and begged the federal government to pay for his mess.
“I’m gonna tell you something, New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this,” Adams said at the time. “The federal government needs to do its job. We need the federal government, the Congress members, the Senate and the president to do their job: close the borders,” said Adams’ advisor Ingrid Lewis Martin insisted in early October. “And until you close the borders, you need to come on with a full-on decompression strategy where you can take all of our migrants and move them through our 50 states.”
