Carter, who has reported extensively on the border and immigration, told Fox News Digital at CPAC that Mayorkas is the last person to take on such a responsibility.

The Department of Homeland Security has been designated as the lead federal government agency responsible for coordinating national preparedness and response efforts related to Russiais at war Ukrainethe department announced Thursday.

Therefore, she said Mayorkas could not deal effectively with a potential second crisis, given the way he left his agents unprepared and unable to do their jobs.

“I’ve covered this border for probably almost 20 years. And I’ve seen the evolution of what’s happened on this border. And I can tell you that the threat to national security is the southern border of the United States. United,” she said.

“Why? Because first of all, our border patrol agents and our federal agents don’t have the ability to harness their power in the right direction because they’re so busy processing migrants. They can’t even not effectively police the border. And they will say so themselves. They feel like they are part of the humanitarian crisis that they are helping to smuggle people into this country. It’s a crazy idea.

Asked that the media largely ignores the crisis along the southern border, Carter said the situation doesn’t match the Democratic Party’s narrative.

MSNBC host Chris Hayes recently said that “immigration can mean a lot of things, but it’s at extremely low levels right now.”

A week later, the Center for Immigration Studies analyzed census data and found that the number of illegal and legal foreign-born immigrants to the United States in January was the highest number recorded since 1850. analysis showed that this figure had increased by 1.7 million. from 2021.

In addition, during the last fiscal year, deportations by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) dropped sharply, coinciding with many Biden Administration policies that prevented ICE agents from apprehending illegal immigrants.

“This is a perfect example — Chris Hayes’ tweet [claiming] we’re going to have the lowest number of people crossing the border that we’ve ever seen. And then all of a sudden there’s the real facts coming out that show it’s like more than double,” she said. everyone does…check it out yourself. You correct the file. But they don’t fix the record on the most important issues. Why? Because they are political narratives that fit a political party: the Democratic Party.”

Carter said other mainstream media “visibly” support Democratic candidates and “lie to the American people without hesitation.”

“Before, you’d make a mistake, you’d correct the record, you’d put a correction in the journal – I remember when it was ‘hold the presses’, and we’d be worried about that.”

Carter wondered if the press served the interests of the American people.

“I think that’s why we see their numbers dropping, why people don’t trust, for the most part, the press – why people are concerned and worried because they don’t know what the real news is” , she said.

“[That] That’s why I feel blessed to be able to go to the border and have a camera there and show the American people exactly what’s going on.”
