Border Patrol Video Exposes Smugglers Abandoning Toddlers At The Border

U.S. Customs and Border Protection released a video on Wednesday to show how quick smugglers will get people over the border. Two toddlers were abandoned and smugglers were seen fleeing the area after the children were dropped over the border wall into the United States.

According to Fox News, the smugglers abandoned,  “a 5-year-old girl and a 3-year-old girl at the border in the New Mexico desert in the middle of the night — after dropping them over a 14-foot border barrier.”

The video was released by El Paso Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gloria Chaves and she said the two smugglers scaled the fence and dropped both of the children onto the ground as well as some belongings.

According to Chavez, both girls were left miles away from the nearest residence but were picked up by agents after being spotted from the surveillance technology.

“I’m appalled by the way these smugglers viciously dropped innocent children from a 14-foot border barrier last night. If not for the vigilance of our agents using mobile technology, these two tender-aged siblings would have been exposed to the harsh elements of desert environment for hours,” Chavez said according to the outlet.

“We are currently working with our law enforcement partners in Mexico and attempting to identify these ruthless human smugglers so as to hold them accountable to the fullest extent of the law,” she added.

Senator Ted Cruz has been open in allowing the press to see the Donna facility in Texas where he said, “President Biden should have listened to me sooner, but I’m glad he is listening now and letting press into the Donna facility. Press saw what we saw on Friday: a CBP facility at 1,700% capacity. Enough is enough. We need to address the border crisis.”

The Biden administration is struggling to get a handle on the border as more unaccompanied minors continue to show up.

Fox Reported, “The number of UACs has been rising for weeks, with the administration opening centers in an effort to house them. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) currently has more than 5,000 child migrants in custody, while Health and Human Services (HHS) has more than 11,000.”
