Sara Carter on ‘Hannity’: Border Patrol agents are spread too thin

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.”

DHS Secretary Mayorkas Says We Cannot Remove ‘11 Million Undocumented Individuals’ Unlawfully in U.S.

Troubling details were unearthed during the questioning of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas by the Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-IA). Grassley asked Mayorkas about a DHS memo from September 30 which reads: “The fact an individual is a removable noncitizen will not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them.”

“Does that reasoning apply to the [1.2] million illegal immigrants who have received due process and been given a final order of removal by an immigration judge?” Grassley asked Mayorkas.

“We cannot remove 1.2 million individuals, nor can we remove more than 11 million undocumented individuals, individuals who are unlawfully present in the United States, who might not have final orders of removal” Mayorkas answered.

Mayorkas also stated that he had issued the due process policy after drawing on “tremendous experience not only as a member of the Department of Homeland Security but as a federal prosecutor.”

Grassley pressed Mayorkas, asking, “should any of them be removed?”

“Of course,” Mayorkas said. “I do believe that individuals who pose a public safety threat, who pose a national security threat, who pose a border security threat, should be removed, and we should be smart and effective in our use of resources, and we should focus on the well-being of our communities and prioritize individuals for removal.”

In his opening statements, Grassley addressed Mayorkas and stated, “When you allow the ACLU and open-borders immigration activists rather than career law enforcement professionals to dictate the terms of your immigration and border policies, then you shouldn’t be surprised when record-shattering numbers of people start showing up at the border to take advantage of that.”

Grassley continued, “When you run DHS like it’s an ‘Abolish ICE’ fan club, you shouldn’t be surprised when you have an illegal immigration crisis on your hands.”
