During Wednesday’s episode of “The Sara Carter Show” podcast, Carter was talking about her recent trips to the U.S.-Mexico border to report on the deteriorating situation as detention facilities are struggling to cope with the surge in migrants—especially unaccompanied children—crossing the border.
“Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who said there wasn’t a crisis at the border, he was lying,” she charged, going on to mention Mayorkas’s planned Friday trip to the border.
“He wouldn’t even allow the media to come with him when he came out here to the border, or follow him, or go into any of those facilities because he’s lying to you,” Carter continued.
Mayorkas, who was born in Cuba, “said there isn’t a crisis. There is a crisis at this border. And he even admitted himself that it’s going to grow exponentially,” Carter said before accusing the homeland security secretary of “gaslighting”.
Moreover, she went on to rail against Mayorkas and doubled down on her accusation that he’s lying.
“And now I’m here at the border,” Carter said, “and I’m saying, ‘Guess what, Homeland [Security] Secretary Mayorkas? Just because you have that title doesn’t make everything that comes out of your mouth true. It’s a lie. Why? Because I’m here on the border. Why? Because I speak Spanish and I talked to those kids, and I talked to the people that are traveling here. Why? Because I can see it with my own eyes. My eyes are not playing tricks on me. Why? Because we have documents that prove that what went on inside, and what is going on inside, that facility is plain wrong. And you cannot hide that truth. We are not stupid. And, and we’re gonna find out.'”

20 states suing Biden administration over migrant parole program
President Joe Biden has expanded a humanitarian parole program leading to a significant increase of migrants entering the United States illegally each month. As a result, 20 states have geared up to sue the Biden administration.
Tuesday, 20 Republican states and conservative legal group America First Legal, announced their plans to sue the White House over the legality of the administration’s parole program. The program “allows up to 30,000 migrants from Haiti, Nicaragua, Cuba, and Venezuela into the homeland each month” reports Foreign Desk News.
Reports shoot the lawsuit was filed by Texas, the America First Legal and the other states in the Southern District of Texas in hopes to block the parole program.
Foreign Desk News reports of the history:
In October, the administration announced the program for Venezuelans, allowing a limited number to fly directly into the U.S. as long as they had not entered illegally, had a sponsor already, and passed certain checks. In early January, President Biden announced that the program would expand to include Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Cubans, allowing up to 30,000 a month into the U.S.
The program also allows migrants to receive work permits and a two-year authorization to live in the U.S. and was announced alongside an expansion of Title 42 expulsions to include those nationalities.
In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs argue that the program is unlawful given the “exceptionally limited” parole power the federal government has, adding that they have up to 360,000 migrants that could be allowed into the homeland a year.
The suit’s focus is on the limits placed on parole by Congress, saying that the authority is to be used on a “case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit.”
“Every state in America, especially border states like Texas, is being crushed by the impacts of illegal immigration,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement to Fox News Digital.
“The Biden open borders agenda has created a humanitarian crisis that is increasing crime and violence in our streets, overwhelming local communities, and worsening the opioid crisis. This unlawful amnesty program, which will invite hundreds of thousands of aliens into the U.S. every year, will only make this immigration crisis drastically worse.”
