Sara Carter joins Texas DPS at border, encounters woman stranded by smugglers

Carter called the situation at the southern border ‘extremely dangerous’

Investigative reporter Sara Carter highlighted the toll illegal immigration is having on migrants themselves Tuesday on “Hannity.”

Carter and the Texas Department of Public Safety flew over Big Bend National Park on Tuesday, where communications shared with them reported a woman had been seen stranded atop a mountain not far from the Mexican border.

The young woman later told Carter she had been left on the mountain by a group of people who promised to return for her but never did.

The reporter noted that the woman would have had to face very tough elements to survive where she was abandoned.

“She’s terrified, she’s crying, and she said there were 27 other people with her,” Carter said.

“There’s all kinds of elements out there that … if she would spend the night out there tonight, it would have dropped into the low 30s [Fahrenheit] — who knows if she would have made it.”

Carter added that the woman’s phone broke moments after she attempted to call authorities for help.

One of the agents Carter accompanied, Lt. Chris Olivarez, later said the case proves how human smuggling organizations in Mexico have no regard for human life.

“They’ll leave a person behind and keep moving on,” he said.

“It’s extraordinarily dangerous times,” Carter later told host Sean Hannity.

“Foreign service allies … are extraordinarily concerned about the national security and basically the porous border here in the United States.”

She later showed Hannity an area where a dead body had been discovered near Eagle Pass – both U.S. and Mexican authorities are trying to decide which country must recover the corpse from the middle of the Rio Grande.

Carter added that Texas Department of Public Safety is overwhelmed with receiving no help from the Biden administration.

    Why is it that virtually every illegal I see being apprehended is wearing camo? Is it provided by smugglers? I doubt that this is a fashion statement, but a cheap attempt to hide them as they work their way north. In court, this should be considered as evidence of intent to evade the border authorities.

    Biden’s Gang encouraging undocumented illegals to cross our borders is the root cause of the misery that both the illegals and our Nation are now facing.
    This is NOT about humanitarianism, it is about tearing down our nation and replacing it with their insane agenda. It is all about power and money in the end.

IG Audit shows nonprofit wasted $17 million taxpayer dollars on hotels to not house illegal foreign nationals

An audit report by the Inspector General shows enraging information as to exactly how millions of dollars from the American people were completely wasted.

One doesn’t need to read past the IG report’s headline to become furious: “ICE Spent Funds on Unused Beds, Missed COVID-19 Protocols and Detention Standards while Housing Migrant Families in Hotels.”

In summary, an unbelievable $17 million was wasted on not housing illegal foreign nationals. At the heart of the story is Endeavors, a nonprofit which has received half a billion dollars in taxpayer money “through no-bid government contracts to house foreign nationals who illegally entered the U.S. and were released by the Biden administration instead of being deported” reports The Center Square.

The audit evaluated the process used by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to grant no bid contracts to Endeavors and their compliance with federal law, the article explains.

The report evaluated an $86.9 million sole source contract first awarded to Endeavors earlier this year. The contract was awarded for six months to provide “temporary shelter and processing services for families who have not been expelled and are therefore placed in immigration proceedings for their removal from the United States,” The Center Square previously reported.

Months after it received its first no bid contract, Endeavors received a second $530 million contract and hired former Biden administration official Andrew Lorenzen-Straight as its senior director for migrant services and federal affairs, Axios reported.

The Center Square explains:

Sole source contracts are used when an agency can demonstrate the contract meets specific and justified criteria. If contracts don’t meet one of the criteria, they must be awarded through an open competitive process.

Endeavors has no professional history of providing housing services and has never provided beds or all-inclusive emergency family residential services, OIG auditors found. Those critical of DHS’ contract process argue the agency should be awarding contracts through an open competitive process to ensure that those bidding for funds can offer the services they claim they can provide.

Under the contract in question, for six months between March and September 2021, Endeavors was responsible for providing 1,239 beds and other necessary services in hotels. It used six hotels and repurposed them as Emergency Family Reception Sites to accommodate families staying less than three days while ICE considered conditions of release, including alternatives to detention.

The IOG made four recommendations for ICE to improve its contracting and oversight of hotel facility management and operations. “ICE concurred with one recommendation and didn’t concur with three. Based on information ICE provided in its response, the IOG said it considered one recommendation resolved and closed, and three recommendations administratively closed.”
