As the border crisis continues to escalate, Sara has been speaking with multiple officials forced to deal with the deteriorating situation placed upon them by the Biden administration. In an exclusive interview, Sara Carter went to the border and interviewed a senior border patrol agent who recently retired.
The agent “wants to make clear what is happening on the border is being purposefully done by the Biden administration and their hands are tied behind their backs” Carter tells Fox News host Sean Hannity.
The agent conducted the interview concealing his identity for his safety. “What I’m seeing now is something that I have never seen before” and “the most concerning thing is that it’s being done on purpose” he begins.
The agent goes on to say how working under different administrations with “their feelings and their policies regarding the border.” He says that under the Obama administration when problems were brought up, while there was a feeling of “oops I got caught” at least there was a sense of “let me correct, let me see what I can do.”
As for the Biden administration, “this time around, what I see is we can bring politicians down here, do our ‘dog and pony show’ and all that and we show them, and it’s like we keep screaming” said the agent.
“Look at this. I mean, look at our processing center, look at the border, look at the deaths. Look at all this, but nothing is done.” Instead, “they double down and continue on.” He also laments that the policies the administration is putting into place, “in their view this is success…I don’t think this is by mistake.”
“We signed up to protect this nation and we are not being allowed to do that. But there is another aspect of this and it’s the suffering that we see directly because of these policies.”
“We see things that no human should be seeing ever in their lives. We see death, we see suffering and when this suffering is being brought on by the very same people that feign so much concern about that population, ok, it makes it even worse
“These policies, like I said, are successful for them because this is what they wanted from the get-go.”

Authorities confirmed 1,700-foot tunnel that ends in a San Diego warehouse near the U.S. Border Protection Otay Mesa Port of Entry was used to traffic drugs.
U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of California Randy Grossman said the 61-foot deep and four feet across at the widest part was complete with “reinforced walls, a rail system, and electricity for ventilation.”

Authorities stated a whopping $25 million worth of drugs were seized form within the tunnel over the weekend. Fox News reports that among the drugs were “1,762 pounds of cocaine, 165 pounds of meth, and 3.5 pounds of heroin.”
Authorities found the tunnel after surveilling a truck that was going to and from the warehouse with large boxes. “In a span of a few hours, agents watched five vehicles come and go from the stash house and this warehouse, we allege that the defendants were driving into the garage and loading or dropping off cardboard boxes full of drugs to further the movement or distribution of drugs throughout the United States, the federal agents were watching the whole time,” Grossman said.
After raiding the warehouse, authorities found no other drugs, but did spot the tunnel opening carved onto the floor.
“There is no more light at the end of this narco-tunnel,” Grossman said. “We will take down every subterranean smuggling route we find to keep illicit drugs from reaching our streets and destroying our families and communities.”
Fox News reports six California residents, aged 21 to 55, were arrested and charged with conspiring to distribute cocaine, meth, and heroin. “Together with the Mexican government, we have been collaborating in trying to eradicate these tunnels, which should not exist because that is where a lot of crime happens, and a lot of the suffering that we see,” U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Ken Salazar told the news outlet Zeta. “This needs to stop.”
Fox News adds “authorities said that drug-smuggling tunnels are not uncommon. They are usually used by drug smugglers to evade authorities and transport a large quantity of drugs. More than 15 tunnels have been found since 2006, officials said.”
