Sara Carter blasted President Biden on Hannity Friday night, claiming he doesn’t really care about the border crisis. She told host Leo Terrell if he really cared, he’d stop illegal immigration entirely.
Earlier last week, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was caught in a leaked audio saying admitting the border crisis is out of control. “This is unsustainable,” he said. “We can’t continue like this . . . Our system isn’t built for it.” Terrell asked Sara how the left is getting away with the hypocrisy of mask and vaccine mandates in the states, but not having a system built to safely process migrants. Instead, there’s an open border for migrants who are potentially sick.
“If President Biden says he truly cares about the people coming in here, he’ll stop it,” Carter said. She pointed out the high COVID-19 cases among migrants. In some towns, it’s as high as 40%. Even border patrol agents are suffering, with 400 currently under quarantine. Meanwhile, according to Carter, local residents complain “resources are strained.”
“A lot of DHS officials I’ve spoken to, a lot of federal law enforcement and local law enforcement are saying flat out that President Biden is derelicting his duties,” Carter said.
As a result, Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) called for Secretary Mayorkas to resign last week.
“He has been an abject failure at securing our borders and our country,” Johnson tweeted.

CA to provide all low-income illegal immigrants health care at a cost of ‘$2.7 billion a year’
On Thursday, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a $307.9 billion operating budget “that pledges to make all low-income adults eligible for the state’s Medicaid program by 2024 regardless of their immigration status” reports the Associated Press.
The guarantee of free health care for low-income immigrants here illegally, is a “move that will provide coverage for an additional 764,000 people at an eventual cost of about $2.7 billion a year” adds the AP.
According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, a health care nonprofit, people living in the country illegally in 2020 accounted for roughly 7% of the population nationwide, or about 22.1 million people. The border crisis and number of migrants entering the United States illegally has skyrocketed to historic levels since 2020 when President Joe Biden took office.
Medicaid nationwide is the current combination of federal and state governments assisting Americans and low-income adults and children to receive free health care, but the federal government does not cover those living here illegally.
“Some states, including California, have used their own tax dollars to cover a portion of health care expenses for some low-income immigrants” reports the AP. “Now, California wants to be the first to do that for everyone.”
“This will represent the biggest expansion of coverage in the nation since the start of the Affordable Care Act in 2014,” said Anthony Wright, executive director of Health Access California, a statewide consumer health care advocacy group. “In California we recognize (that) everybody benefits when everyone is covered.”
While 92% of Californians currently have some form of health insurance, “that will change once this budget is fully implemented, as adults living in the country illegally make up one of the largest groups of people without insurance in the state” the AP concludes.
