Sara A. Carter described an “overwhelming” crisis at the U.S. Mexico border, during the Sunday night Fox News show “The Next Revolution” with Steve Hilton. Moreover, law enforcement officials attempting to mitigate the issue feel their “hands are tied,” she said.
Carter recently returned from two border trips to McAllen and Brownsville, Texas and Yuma, Arizona.
“Many of them (migrants)… they’re sitting there, people are crossing the border, turning themselves in, they’re asking them to take off their shoelaces, they’re asking them to remove their belts, they’re basically saying ‘welcome to America, you’re not going to be kicked out, let’s take you and get you processed,'” Carter explained.
She added, “And now the problem is is that it’s overwhelming right now. The facilities are overwhelmed. You have over 9,300 children in the month of February.”
Carter went on to emphasize that the issue is not only dealing with an influx of unaccompanied children but also concerns an influx in family units.
“The border is wide open,” she said. “So you have over 100,000 people in February that entered the United States. Now, this week alone, we’re seeing over 3,500 children, but we’re also seeing family units. And not all of those people are the actual parents or guardians of these children. So we’re seeing a lot of human trafficking as well.”

20 states suing Biden administration over migrant parole program
President Joe Biden has expanded a humanitarian parole program leading to a significant increase of migrants entering the United States illegally each month. As a result, 20 states have geared up to sue the Biden administration.
Tuesday, 20 Republican states and conservative legal group America First Legal, announced their plans to sue the White House over the legality of the administration’s parole program. The program “allows up to 30,000 migrants from Haiti, Nicaragua, Cuba, and Venezuela into the homeland each month” reports Foreign Desk News.
Reports shoot the lawsuit was filed by Texas, the America First Legal and the other states in the Southern District of Texas in hopes to block the parole program.
Foreign Desk News reports of the history:
In October, the administration announced the program for Venezuelans, allowing a limited number to fly directly into the U.S. as long as they had not entered illegally, had a sponsor already, and passed certain checks. In early January, President Biden announced that the program would expand to include Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Cubans, allowing up to 30,000 a month into the U.S.
The program also allows migrants to receive work permits and a two-year authorization to live in the U.S. and was announced alongside an expansion of Title 42 expulsions to include those nationalities.
In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs argue that the program is unlawful given the “exceptionally limited” parole power the federal government has, adding that they have up to 360,000 migrants that could be allowed into the homeland a year.
The suit’s focus is on the limits placed on parole by Congress, saying that the authority is to be used on a “case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit.”
“Every state in America, especially border states like Texas, is being crushed by the impacts of illegal immigration,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement to Fox News Digital.
“The Biden open borders agenda has created a humanitarian crisis that is increasing crime and violence in our streets, overwhelming local communities, and worsening the opioid crisis. This unlawful amnesty program, which will invite hundreds of thousands of aliens into the U.S. every year, will only make this immigration crisis drastically worse.”
