What’s the connection among China, the Mexican cartels, the opioid crisis and your backyard? What if I told you it all starts at the southern border? What if I told you that the threats posed by the border crisis are not confined to the southern border at all but are also very real within your state, your town, and even your neighborhood? You’ve heard about the crisis at the southern border… but never like this.

Welcome to the Dark Wars

Dark Wars: The Border is a new podcast series, hosted by award-winning journalist Sara Carter, that conducts in-depth investigations to expose what you are not being told about what’s happening at our 2,000-mile-long border with Mexico.  It uncovers how this crisis touches you and every other American across the country.  Dark Wars is a joint production of Radio America and The Dark Wire.

Dark Wars: The Border follows award-winning investigative journalist Sara Carter on her perilous journey to uncover information that reveals how the porous U.S.-Mexico border has become a national security threat, unlike anything America has ever encountered. During the Spring and Summer of 2022, Carter embedded with border patrol agents via foot, horseback, car, and helicopter – interviewing coyotes that work for the cartel and migrants alike – to reveal chilling stories that have not been told by the media.

She traveled to El Salvador and Guatemala to understand how cartels use social media to recruit migrants under the guise of easy passage and a better life, only to encounter abuse, rape, and death. Carter also obtained a rare, in-person interview with Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei about his perspective on America’s immigration crisis. In this chilling documentary series, you’ll learn how China, America’s greatest foreign adversary, is leveraging the border crisis to expand America’s opioid epidemic and weaken U.S. security, while strengthening its influence in the region. Welcome to the Dark Wars.

About Sara Carter

Sara A. Carter is a national and international award-winning investigative reporter whose stories have ranged from national security, terrorism, immigration and front line coverage of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Sara is currently an investigative reporter, host of the Sara Carter Show on Radio America and a Fox News Contributor.  Sara also writes for her eponymous website SaraACarter.com. She formerly worked as a senior national security correspondent for Circa News, as well as with the Los Angeles News Group, The Washington Times, The Washington Examiner and has written numerous exclusives for USA Today, US News World Report, and Arutz Sheva in Israel.

In 2006, she received her second National Headliner Award for her multiple part series Beyond Borders. The project consisted of groundbreaking investigations that focused on immigration and national security concerns along the southwest border. Her investigative work on immigration also earned her the 2006 Eugene Katz Award from the Center for Immigration Studies, in Washington D.C.

Sara was the first to uncover U.S. documents disclosing the number of Mexican Military incursions into the United States and her feature on Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Nachoâ Ramos and Jose Compean led to a national movement to pardon the agents who were sentenced to 12 years in prison after an altercation with a convicted Mexican drug smuggler in Texas. After a two-year investigation by Sara, President George W. Bush commuted their sentence on his last day of office.

Sara’s work along the U.S. Mexico border paved a new path in national security-related stories and her investigations have also uncovered secret tunnel systems, narcotics-trafficking routes and the involvement of Mexican federal officials in the drug trade.

Her investigative reports have won regional, state, national and international recognition. She is the recipient of two National Headliner Awards, one of which, Jamie’s Story, focused on a child born into the Mexican Mafia and gangs in Southern California. The in-depth and at times life-threatening stories led to the forced retirement of city officials and led to changes in law, education and programs in San Bernardino and Los Angeles Counties.

In 2008, Sara was awarded the Society of Professional Journalists nationally recognized Sigma Delta Chi award for her multiple-part series in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico that uncovered the brutality of the Gulf and Sinaloa Cartel wars along the border.

Sara grew up in Saudi Arabia and has traveled extensively throughout the Middle East, Africa, Europe and Mexico.  Sara, who speaks Spanish fluently, is the daughter of a Cuban immigrant mother and her father was a Marine and veteran of two wars. She has six children and is married to a war-hero, who was blinded while on a mission fighting terrorists in Afghanistan for the Defense Department.
