Sara A. Carter gained exclusive access of a shocking email from a Border Patrol whistleblower that exposes new details of the migrant facility in Donna, Tx.
Carter joined “Hannity” on Tuesday and explained that the conditions in the migrant facility are far worse than what was initially reported.
“The Biden administration has clearly been lying to the entire country,” host Sean Hannity said.
The email sent from a border patrol official to the chain of command at Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is a “desperate plea for help,” Hannity said.
The letter described conditions inside the facility as “extremely unsafe and unhealthy for the detainees, agents, and civilian workforce.”
“The overcrowding is inhumane, especially for the children,” the letter continued. “Pod 3A is designed to hold 80 people and on this day we have 694 unaccompanied children with two agents maintaining custody. That is 867% of the stated capacity of this detention space. The agents cannot possibly provide for the care, health, and safety of aliens in our custody, nor can we reasonably do so for ourselves.”
The whistleblower went on to explain that the detainees were “stressed and fatigued” and becoming agitated as many have been in the facility for more than two weeks.
Detainees are forced to lay on top of each other because there is no room to sleep and unaccompanied children have to sleep on their side to save space, the email reads.
“If we have a fire, a carbon monoxide leak from the generators, a stampede, or any number of potential and likely occurrences, many people will die. This situation is a disaster waiting to happen. Someone with the proper authority must do something immediately to alleviate the severe overcrowding before we experience a tragedy.”
Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott responded to the email, saying he hears the whistleblower “loud and clear.” The U.S. Customers and Border Protection confirmed the validity of the emails with a statement, saying the facility is no place for a child and vowing to “protect the nation and enforce laws humanely.”
“[These children] have been through enough already,” Carter said to Hannity. “Some of these children are as young as 4, 7 years old. Some of them have traveled all alone, across three countries, to get here to the United States.”
“You have to imagine the stress on these children as they’re sleeping in these cramped-up conditions inside these tents,” Carter said.
“It’s a very, very stressful situation, not only for the people inside being held here, but imagine what it is for the border patrol agents, the civilian workers, the doctors and the other medical professionals that are here.”

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.”
