Over a month has passed since Vice President Kamala Harris was named the Biden administration’s Border Czar and she has yet to visit the Southern border or give a press conference on the current migrant surge. Now, reporters are visiting the border themselves to get the real story. Michael Yon has reported on wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Now, he’s reporting on what he describes as another “war” at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The former Green Beret walks today’s “trail of tears,” as he calls it. He’s experiencing the border crossing just as these migrants do. He called into the Sara Carter Podcast from the Darien Jungle in Panama.
“It’s literally a war out there,” Yon said. “It’s war-time level dangerous.”
For many of these migrants, Yon explains, they’re traveling from the eastern hemisphere. People from all over the Middle East and Africa make the trip to the South American continent. They enter via Brazil or Ecuador because neither country requires a visa at entry. Yon is stationed at the Darien gap, a stretch of land between Colombia and Panama, where most of these migrants travel through.
The migrants he talks to don’t recommend that anyone make the journey. Even though they tend to travel in groups, they tell Yon stories of all those that die along the way. Often no one bothers to bury these bodies that are left on the sides of the path, he said, adding that women also face the danger of being raped as they traverse these countries.
It’s been heavy work to record the stories of these migrants. Luckily, Yon says he’s coped with it by going on nature walks.
“You got to get in the sunshine,” Yon told Sara. “I find it extremely helpful to just go for long walks.”

20 states suing Biden administration over migrant parole program
President Joe Biden has expanded a humanitarian parole program leading to a significant increase of migrants entering the United States illegally each month. As a result, 20 states have geared up to sue the Biden administration.
Tuesday, 20 Republican states and conservative legal group America First Legal, announced their plans to sue the White House over the legality of the administration’s parole program. The program “allows up to 30,000 migrants from Haiti, Nicaragua, Cuba, and Venezuela into the homeland each month” reports Foreign Desk News.
Reports shoot the lawsuit was filed by Texas, the America First Legal and the other states in the Southern District of Texas in hopes to block the parole program.
Foreign Desk News reports of the history:
In October, the administration announced the program for Venezuelans, allowing a limited number to fly directly into the U.S. as long as they had not entered illegally, had a sponsor already, and passed certain checks. In early January, President Biden announced that the program would expand to include Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Cubans, allowing up to 30,000 a month into the U.S.
The program also allows migrants to receive work permits and a two-year authorization to live in the U.S. and was announced alongside an expansion of Title 42 expulsions to include those nationalities.
In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs argue that the program is unlawful given the “exceptionally limited” parole power the federal government has, adding that they have up to 360,000 migrants that could be allowed into the homeland a year.
The suit’s focus is on the limits placed on parole by Congress, saying that the authority is to be used on a “case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit.”
“Every state in America, especially border states like Texas, is being crushed by the impacts of illegal immigration,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement to Fox News Digital.
“The Biden open borders agenda has created a humanitarian crisis that is increasing crime and violence in our streets, overwhelming local communities, and worsening the opioid crisis. This unlawful amnesty program, which will invite hundreds of thousands of aliens into the U.S. every year, will only make this immigration crisis drastically worse.”
