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.

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.”
