After several reporters pressed her, Vice President Kamala Harris finally announced that she will be visiting the border personally this Friday. This comes after over 90 days since Harris became the border czar.

The White House confirmed she will visit El Paso, Texas alongside Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. This is the same facility where congressional delegation was previously denied access into.

Previously, Harris defended not visiting the border admits the crisis by saying she was working on the root causes of migration. Mayorkas has visited the border several times since his nomination. The Vice President told reporters “we’ve been to the border” in reference to his visits. But now, she will finally see it for herself.”

Continuity Global Solutions CEO Jerry Torres shared his insight on the rise of cartels at the border with Sara Carter. According to his experience as a defense contractor and documentarian, immigrants aren’t leaving their countries because of the cartels, but for economic opportunity. 

“I’ve met with our special operations forces,” Torres told Carter on the latest episode of The Sara Carter Show. “They have been training on the El Salvador and Special Operations folks, and I met with the deputy director of their special ops folks there. And they said there are no MS-13 here. There might be pockets of them here and there in small neighborhoods, but they pretty much wiped them out.”

Yet, the Biden administration considers the treat of MS-13 a pillar of their lax immigration policy. Instead, Torres says they’re not a threat at all. The locals actually get along fine despite the organized crime. “They’re not in fear of their country, they’re not in fear of the police, they’re not in fear of MS- 13. They just want a better life,” Torres said. “And the thing is, is if you take a look at what they’re claiming asylum, well, asylum is not for economic reasons.”

Meanwhile, the cartel has taken on a new role: human trafficking. Immigrants aren’t afraid of MS-13 because they turn to them for advice. Sara Carter has been reporting on this symbiotic relationship for years. “They’re basically rehearsing with a lot of the people, the migrants that are coming across, this is what you need to say, when you get across. This is what you need to ask for, or you won’t be able to stay,” Carter said. “So it’s kind of like a dress rehearsal of sorts. Before they come here, they are taught: what are our loopholes and what do you need to say.”

Under the Trump administration, the Department of Justice established a task force to fight the murders and other serious crimes committed by MS-13 members.
