Sara A. Carter accused Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas of lying when he said there wasn’t a crisis at the southern border.

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.'”

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.”
