Sara Carter spoke with Fox News host Sean Hannity on ‘Hannity‘ Wednesday about the Sinaloa Cartel from an area on the Arizona-Mexico border that has become notorious for illegal crossings and smuggling operations.
Carter, speaking to Hannity from the border near Sasabe, Arizona, explained why there has been an exponential increase in narcotics trafficking near the Arizona-Mexico border.
“Border patrol agents in Arizona and the Border Patrol union are warning this is a serious crisis,” Carter said. “Here, there is an exponential increase in narcotics trafficking. What’s happening here is we have an enormous drug war on the other side of the border. [The] Sinaloa Cartel controls this area in Sasabe, Arizona, which borders Sasabe, Mexico.”
Carter then went on to explain that Border Patrol officers are spread too thin due to the influx of minors illegally crossing the border into the U.S and President Biden’s order to halt the border wall construction has increased narcotics trafficking in these areas.
“There’s a lot of concern that while our Border Patrol agents are spread so thin dealing with young people… the drug cartels are using the open spaces, because the Biden administration basically halted the continuation of the border wall, they’re using those open spaces to bring those drugs in.”

NYC Mayor Adams’ budget cuts slash total number of police and education funds
“No city should be left to handle a national humanitarian crisis largely on its own, and without the significant and timely support we need from Washington, D.C., today’s budget will only be the beginning,” said New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams about his decision to make budget cuts as a result of the overwhelming migrant crisis.
However, those who will suffer from budget cuts to the city’s services to offset the cost of dealing with the ever-increasing number of migrants are those that are in place to make the city better.
“The cuts will see police freeze hiring and bring the total number of police officers below 30,000. It would further slash the education budget by $1 billion over two years and affect a litany of other agencies” reports Just The News.
Albeit, Adams admitted: “In all my time in government, this is probably one of the most painful exercises I’ve gone through.” More than 110,000 migrants have arrived in New York City over the past year, including roughly 13,000 sent from Texas by GOP Governor Greg Abbott as part of his ongoing bussing plan to send new arrivals to the U.S. to sanctuary cities.
However, similar to other leaders of sanctuary cities, Adams is unwilling to put his money where his mouth is. In September, Adams warned that the crisis would “destroy New York City” and begged the federal government to pay for his mess.
“I’m gonna tell you something, New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this,” Adams said at the time. “The federal government needs to do its job. We need the federal government, the Congress members, the Senate and the president to do their job: close the borders,” said Adams’ advisor Ingrid Lewis Martin insisted in early October. “And until you close the borders, you need to come on with a full-on decompression strategy where you can take all of our migrants and move them through our 50 states.”
