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.”

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
