“You just have to go there and see it for yourself before you even talk about it,” Sara Carter

President Trump touted his plan to end the government shutdown Saturday to no avail, as Democrats continue begin their week by battling against a border wall. Trump described the humanitarian crisis for women and children being trafficked and said he would extend provisional status for DACA and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for those qualified for three years to find a compromise with Democrats.

Despite the gesture, Democrats didn’t budge and have refused to negotiate.

“To every member of Congress: Pass a bill that ends this crisis. To every citizen: Call Congress and tell them to finally, after all of these decades, secure our border. This is a choice between right and wrong, justice and injustice. This is about whether we fulfill our sacred duty to the American citizens we serve.”

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-NY said on Twitter, “Unfortunately, @realDonaldTrump keeps putting forward one-sided and ineffective remedies.” Adding the only solution is to reopen government, and then negotiate.

Humanitarian and National Security Crisis At The Border

There is a humanitarian and national security crisis happening on both sides of our Southern border, said Carter, who recently visited McAllen, Texas.


“You just have to go there and see it for yourself before you even talk about it,” said Carter to Sebastian Gorka on Salem Radio’s “America FIRST.”

Carter At The Border

This is exactly what Carter did. At the end of 2018, Carter followed the second migrant caravan in Guatemala, where she found roughly 1,500 men and less than 200 women and children.

Embedded in that caravan were several group leaders who led an orchestrated effort to overwhelm officials at the Guatemalan border. Carter told Gorka that Guatemalan officials had to remove seven children from the group because they were with people who were not their parents.

More recently, Carter took her reporting to Mcallen, TX where she encountered two Bangladeshi men illegally crossing the border.

The men are considered “Special Interest Aliens” because they come from countries tied to terrorism, DHS officials said.  They contend the extension of the border wall in particular areas will help law enforcement better manage resources.


The border wall will not only save American lives but will also save the lives of many attempting to enter the U.S. illegally.

In one case,  a child was used as a prop by multiple illegal aliens attempting to cross the border, Border Patrol agents and ICE officers said. Eventually, it was discovered the mother of this child had been renting the child out for per $400 per crossing.

“They had noticed that there was one child in particular in the same area of the Rio Grande Valley that had been returned to Mexico and then showed up with another family,” Carter said.

The border wall will not only save American lives but will also save the lives of many attempting to enter the U.S. illegally.
