North Carolina Rep. Greg Murphy (R) slammed the emerging concept of COVID-19 “vaccine passports” as a civil liberties issue, and accused Democrats of wanting a police state.

Appearing on Tuesday’s episode of “The Sara Carter Show” podcast, the congressman joined the growing chorus of conservatives in opposing such measures—whether or not these are government- or business-enforced.

“As far as these passports go, it is something of civil liberties,” said Murphy, who is also a urologist. “You know, when I see patients, the first thing I asked him, ‘If you had the vaccine, you’re going to get the vaccine.’ And that’s what it needs to be. […] I don’t ask people if they’ve had the flu vaccine, or if you’ve had this other vaccine, I don’t ask them what their cholesterol is. If they’re just in a public setting, I don’t think that’s good.”

“We’re turning into a police state, if that is the case, which is honestly what the Democrats want. They want a police state,” he continued. “But I don’t think that’s going to hold water in the free states in the United States.”

Host Sara Carter agreed with Murphy’s thoughts on the matter, and soon the conversation turned toward voter ID laws.

“Well, it’s funny, Sara—think about this: the Democrats don’t want voter ID, right? They don’t want you to be able to show who you are, when you come up to vote. You have to have it for all the other things. You have to get it to get food stamps, you have to get it to apply for credit. You have to use ID for everything,” Murphy argued.

“But now they do want an ID to show that you’ve had a vaccination. So […] where’s the logic in that?” he said. “So let’s just turn that back on themselves and say, ‘Look, this is there’s a reason for voter ID.’ But I don’t believe that we should ever get into the avenues of passports and everything else.”

CBP Union SLAMS Mayorkas: ‘Of course, there is a crisis on the border’



Alejandro Mayorkas

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas filibustered his way around every question posed by lawmakers and refused to admit there is a crisis at the United States southern border when pressed by Senators.

In contrast, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (USCBP) Chief Raul Ortiz stated emphatically that the United States had “no operational control” of  its border with Mexico when asked by House members at a border hearing earlier this month. Fox News contributor and Investigative columnist Sara Carter attended the House Homeland Security Committee’s field hearing in south Texas. At the hearing, Ortiz also said that the porous border   “represents challenges, and in some areas, a crisis situation.”

Mayorkas’ refusal to admit what is happening at the border has many Border Patrol agents infuriated with the administration.

Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council Chris Cabrera told this reporter Wednesday, that Mayorkas’ refusal to answer wether or not there is a crisis is not only disingenuous but risks the safety of the U.S. and agents hired to protect the nation.

“He should be ashamed of himself for not answering,” said Cabrera. “Does he think that if he doesn’t answer, the problem isn’t there? Of course, there is a crisis on the border. We are seeing numbers higher that I have seen in my 21 years as an agent. Unfortunately, I don’t see this crisis going away anytime soon.”

Shortly after Ortiz spoke to lawmakers in early March, Carter, who was joined by Texas DPS Lt. Chris Olivarez, spoke on Sean Hannity’s radio show . Carter stated on Wednesday, that  Mayorkas’ testimony directly contradicts Ortiz.

“It’s shameful how DHS Secretary Mayorkas lies to the public and lawmakers,” said Carter. “There is no doubt that there is a crisis at the Southern border and the situation is culminating into a national security crisis. More than 1 million known got-aways are in this country and we have no idea who they are and what their intentions might be. Terrorists have been apprehended at the border, children are dying that are being trafficked and our own children face a Fentanyl crisis, that is nothing short of poisoning and killing our citizens. Mayorkas needs to resign. He is a liar.”


Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas lashed out at Secretary Mayorkas’ handling of the border crisis.

“Mr. Secretary, I want to say to you right now, your behavior is disgraceful. And the deaths, the children assaulted, the children raped, they are at your feet. And if you had integrity, you would resign,” said Cruz.

The powerful Texas Senator continued to unleash on Mayorkas, “the men and women of the Border Patrol, they’ve never had a political leader undermine them. They despise you, Mr. Secretary, because you’re willing to let children be raped to follow political orders. This is a crisis. It’s a disgrace. And you won’t even admit this human tragedy as it is crisis.”

Asked if their are any new developments at the U.S. border with Mexico, Cabrera said, “we are experiencing an influx of Chinese Nationals.” He expressed that “the real issue is going to be the ending of Title 42. Does the agency have a plan in place for the removal of Title 42?” reached out to the DHS’ Office of Public Affairs,, asking if their is a plan in the works when title 42 comes to an end but has yet to receive a response.
