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.”

BREAKING: DHS Secretary Mayorkas Supports Amnesty
During a heated testimony, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas expressed his support for amnesty and a path to citizenship for those who have entered the United States illegally.
Mayorkas tried to dodge at first, saying “only Congress can provide legal status or amnesty through the laws to those who enter the country illegally.” When prompted by Republican Congressman Andy Biggs of Arizona who said “we’re not talking about who passes laws or not, but your philosophy as the DHS Secretary, would you support amnesty?”
Mayorkas responded, “Congressman, I fully support and have for many years, legislative reform that once and for all fixes our broken immigration system…”
“So I take it that you won’t make that statement now…” said Biggs.
“No I will, if you’ll allow me” Mayorkas said, “and it involves a path to citizenship for those who have been in this country for many years, who have contributed to the wellbeing of our country.”
“The answer is you would support amnesty of some kind” Biggs said of his response.
