According to their latest report, U.S. Customs and Border Protection encountered 208,887 migrants at the southern border in August alone. While that is 2% less than the number of encounters in July, it’s a 317% increase since August 2020 and a 233% increase from August 2019.

Of all those migrants who attempted to cross the southern border, a quarter of them had at least one prior encounter in the last 12 months. The vast majority, over 150,000 were attempting to cross for the first time. Meanwhile, only 14% attempted twice in 12 months throughout 2014-2019.

However, 93,414 of the encounters were turned away under Title 42, a public health order meant to protect U.S. citizens from increased COVID-19 positive migrants. But that’s only 44% of the total encounters. Generally, many of those turned away, 75%, were single adults.

Now, CBP found 1,002,722 unique migrants during 2021. Last year, there were 851,513 migrants at the border. In the meantime, more than 10,900 CBP employees tested positive for COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic. A total of 43 have passed away. Eight of those deaths happened in August alone.

Sara Carter joined Fox News’ Primetime ‘Jesse Watters’ show to discuss “how heartbreaking” the tragedies occurring at the southern border are. Speaking for those who cannot, Carter goes in depth as to her discoveries of human smuggling stories at the border.

Carter witnessed it all first hand, when she was given the opportunity to join a “multi-agency human smuggling sting.” The sting, Carter says, showed her the significant lack of control that the Biden administration has over the border crisis.

Carter agrees with the assessment that Biden is the “trafficker-in-chief.” Over 130,000 children entered shelters in the United States in the last fiscal year alone, explains Carter. And that “doesn’t include all the children who disappeared on the journey here” or those who have gone missing inside the country.

Carter says she hopes the Biden administration is watching, as they are responsible “for every child that gets murdered, that gets taken” and abused in child or sexual slavery if they don’t change their course of action.
