Amid reports of immigration surges among families and unaccompanied children, Sara Carter appeared on Hannity Thursday to share what the people of Texas border towns have to say about the border crisis.

Carter interviewed Jimmy Hobbs, the Texas farmer who found five abandoned girls on his property Sunday. He and his wife Katie have lived in Quemado, Texas all their lives. Moreover, their family has lived in the area for generations but only now are they feeling the adverse effects of a weak immigration policy.

“We don’t feel like we’re a sovereign nation any more,” Katie said. “We don’t have a border down here in the south.”

Del Rio Mayor Bruno Lozano also talked to Carter about what it’s like running a city as it experiences a surge in illegal immigration.

“This administration is telling the American people, taxpaying citizens, that [the border] is under control,” Lozano said. “How is an increase of 396% under control, while this time last year it was 18,000 detainees — we are at 97,000 in this sector alone.”

Lozano is disappointed that the Biden administration isn’t called out enough for their failure at the border. “There’s no accountability,” Lozano said. “I was elected to do a duty that is to protect my community and if it means calling out a person from the same party, so be it. I am not going to back down.”

The first month of 2023 at the southern border is already looking bleak; just take a look at the numbers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso, Texas have seized over 500 pounds of hard drugs in January alone.

Additionally, the agency apprehended 62 people they were able to identify as having outstanding arrest warrants. Among the criminals were sex offenders.

The devastating numbers are not surprising, given that in December, the El Paso mayor declared a sate of emergency “after record numbers of people were released onto city streets and sidewalks by the Biden administration” reports The Center Square.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also “sent 400 National Guard troops to restore order and provide humanitarian assistance” adds the media outlet. Border Patrol data showed in December, 55,766 illegal foreign nationals were apprehended in the El Paso Sector.

There were also 32,632 known and recorded gotaways in December, meaning they were able to evade getting captured by law and immigration officials. law enforcement officers told The Center Square that despite the skyrocket high numbers, “these seizures and apprehensions represent a fraction of the amount of people and drugs being trafficked to the southern border between ports of entry.”
