Sara Carter encountered a nine-year-old Guatemalan boy crossing the border and helped him contact his estranged mother for the first time in years late Wednesday night. Carter talked about her most recent trip to the southern border in Texas during an appearance on the Sean Hannity Show Thursday.
The boy borrowed Carter’s phone to call his mother, who’s living in the US already, to let her know he’d made his way safely. He crossed the border without any family members or friends, but Carter told Hannity it appeared his family had hired smugglers to help him get there.

“It was very emotional for me,” Carter said of the phone call. “I’m a mother.”
His story is common. Children have been found abandoned on farms, at the Rio Grande river, and even in open fields along the border. “We have children coming across our border and he is really only one of 20,000 children that are now in our custody. Probably more than 20,000 in over 200 shelters across the United States.” Carter told Hannity Thursday.
And more attempt to cross every day. “Last night, after the show, we went back out on the river… But roads were filled with people. You can see across the river, just you could hear them in the darkness. Making their way with the smugglers down along the river. And then the smugglers loading people up into rafts bringing them across the river with no indication of fear or worry that they were going to be arrested,” Carter said. She spoke to National Guardsmen who say that many of the people in this those boats are families with young children and even pregnant women.
“Because remember,” she said, “this young boy is one of the lucky ones. He actually made it. What about all the children that we never see, that we never hear about, the children that don’t make [it through] this journey?”

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.”
