In a recent visit to Lancaster, California, Sara Carter joined Rep. Mike Garcia (R-CA) to investigate an illegal pot farm with alleged ties to the cartels. The two visited miles and miles of warehouses and fields that stood as testaments to President Biden’s border policy failures.

“This is the border crisis basically in our backyard; some 3- 400 miles away from [Mexico]. It’s affecting everyday American lives right now: it’s not good for Americans [or] those who are here illegally,” Garcia said.

Carter appeared on Hannity Thursday night to share part of her investigative report. She said she was stunned to see alleged cartels operating illegal marijuana fields in the open.

“They have become extremely more brazen,” Carter said. “They are not afraid of hiding it, they don’t hide it because they don’t feel they will ever be held accountable for it and they continue to sell their product – not only across the United States, but according to law enforcement, they are moving millions of dollars, if not billions, overseas, and we don’t even know where that’s going.”

On the other hand, many of the residents near the farms did not want to appear on camera, for fear of retributions from the cartels. At one point, a car spotted Carter’s cameras from down the road, shifted in reverse, and drove quickly out of sight of the cameras.

“It’s unbelievable,” Carter said, commenting on what it’s like to live near such a “sophisticated operation.”

Later, Carter and Garcia came in contact with workers attempt to seemingly intimidate them. Alleged cartel workers filmed the two.

Carter interviewed Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva, who told her Los Angeles County is overwhelmed.

“The origins of the L.A. County sheriff department date back to 1850. This was literally the Wild West. Fast-forward 171 years, it’s becoming the Wild West again,” he said.

Report: Deportations Dropped By 90% Under President Biden

Deportation

Deportations of illegal immigrants have dropped by 90% under President Biden, according to a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies.

“Immigration enforcement, as measured by the number of aliens removed from the country, has collapsed to the lowest level since the mid-1990s, according to ICE deportation records the Center has obtained. Under policies imposed by the Biden administration, removals dropped by 80 percent since last year’s low point during the pandemic lockdown, and by 90 percent since 2019, the last normal year for ICE operations,” Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, said in the report.

The report explained that, “Under Biden Policies, ICE Removals Have Plummeted to a Fraction of Normal Levels. On his first day of office (January 20, 2021), President Biden issued a directive halting virtually all deportations for 100 days and greatly restricting immigration enforcement activity. Following a lawsuit by Texas asserting grave fiscal and public safety harm to its citizens from a near-suspension of federal immigration enforcement, within two weeks federal judge Drew Tipton halted the deportation freeze and later enjoined it indefinitely pending further legal action.”

“The restrictions on other enforcement actions have remained in place with some minor modifications, meaning that, in effect, ICE has been limited to removing known or suspected terrorists, aliens convicted of very serious crimes (mostly those defined as ‘aggravated felons’), and recent illegal arrivals,” the report added.

“The number of aliens removed who had serious criminal convictions also has declined by over 50 percent from 2020 and by 65 percent since 2019,” the report observed.
The Biden administration’s restrictions on ICE have resulted in the highest levels of illegal immigration on record as the agency has been “functionally abolished.”

The Washington Post reported, “ICE under President Biden is an agency on probation. The new administration has rejected calls from some Democrats to eliminate the agency entirely, but Biden has placed ICE deportation officers on a leash so tight that some say their work is being functionally abolished.”
