In an exclusive report from the Texas border for “Hannity“, journalist Sara Carter spoke directly with multiple agents who were shocked at statements made by our Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas in a House committee hearing on Wednesday.
The agents also have a very strong message: illegal migrants should not be entrusting their lives to Mexican cartels.
“It’s incredible,” Carter told Hannity. “A lot of agents have been stunned by his statements.” In the hearing, Mayorkas said the greatest terrorist-related threat comes from “domestic violent extremism” rather than other threats such as those one a terror watchlist or criminals and terrorists who are being apprehending when attempting to cross the border in the U.S.
“I’ve been o the phone with ICE officers, as well as Border Patrol agents who really cannot believe what Alejandro Mayorkas is saying” said Carter.
“Many of them have called for his resignation. So this is certainly not going to end here and lawmakers are certainly going to continue to challenge him and the Biden administration in the upcoming months,” she said.
Those sentiments were echoed in the hearing by several questioners, including Rep. Clay Higgins, R-La., who also went further and pledged support for impeachment proceedings against Mayorkas if the GOP wins back the House.
“I ask you as a man: own this thing,” Higgins entreated the secretary, adding that his handling of the border crisis is causing “disintegration of our national sovereignty.”
Carter also interviewed Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz, who urged migrants not to put their lives in smugglers’ hands:
“[Cartels] aren’t taking into consideration that this is human life, and they’re going to put them in dangerous conditions whether the back of a tractor-trailer, crossing the Rio Grande river at night with small children, or whether it’s putting them in a train car,” Ortiz said.
