SAN ANGELO, Texas – Authorities recovered the body of a 10-month-old child Thursday after a raft carrying migrants capsized Wednesday in the Rio Grande along the Texas-Mexico border.

Three others are missing, according to a news release from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

“What we’re dealing with now is senseless tragedy,” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz. “The men and women of the U.S. Border Patrol have been doing everything in their power to prevent incidents like this. And yet, callous smugglers continue to imperil the lives of migrants for financial gain.”

Migrants often try to cross the river, mostly in poorly constructed rafts with no safety gear, and the water can be deceptively high and fast-moving.
On Wednesday evening, Border Patrol agents from the Eagle Pass South Station detained a man on charges he illegally entered the United States. While in detention, the man told them a raft carrying nine people had overturned and his baby son and nephew had been swept into the Rio Grande.

An adult male and female child also were among the missing, according to the release.

An intensive search operation began in the area. Shortly afterward, cries coming from the river alerted agents to a woman and a child struggling to stay afloat, according to the release.

An agent jumped into the river and rescued the pair, later identified as the wife and child of the man who made the initial report, the release states.
The 6-year-old boy was treated by Border Patrol Emergency Medical Personnel on site, and rushed to a hospital for advanced treatment, the release states.

A man and his juvenile son were found a short time later on the U.S. bank of the river. They did not require medical assistance and were transported to the Eagle Pass South Station, according to the release.

The 10-month-old boy was found deceased several miles downriver by Del Rio Sector's Border Patrol Search, Trauma and Rescue team.
A record number of Central American families are crossing the border, some on foot and some via the river. Just last week, border agents rescued 10 people in a sinking raft in the same area, including a 3-year-old child who had become separated from her mother on the Mexico side.

During the last budget year, U.S. Customs and Border Protection rescue teams responded to more than 4,300 emergencies. There were 283 deaths, including those who drowned or died in the deserts. The high was in 2005’s fiscal year, when 492 people died.

The number of border crossings last month was a 12-year high; more than 103,000 people were encountered, including more than 53,000 people traveling as part of families.

Homeland Security officials say the system is straining under the crush of families who require different care and have different needs from the people agents and officers used to see crossing the border, mostly single men from Mexico.

The White House on Wednesday asked Congress for an additional $4.5 billion in funding for the border. Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan told a Senate subcommittee Thursday the department needed the supplemental funding to help manage the crush of migrants and to provide proper care.

But Democrats are wary of giving the administration more money, especially after the longest government shutdown in history over President Donald Trump’s demand for border wall funding. Trump eventually declared a national emergency declaration to circumvent Congress to get the funding elsewhere. The new emergency funding would not be used to build any of the wall, officials said.

Everyone knows the old sayings about broken clocks and blind squirrels, but I'll confess to being genuinely surprised by this one. The editors of the New York Times, one of the most reliably liberal mainstream publications in America, are no longer able to ignore or abide the ongoing chaos at the Southern border. In a new house editorial, they acknowledge reality and urge Congressional Democrats to get serious about the problem -- including a call to fulfill the Trump administration's latest budget request on this front:



The piece includes some throat clearing and shots at the president, but its overall message is at least somewhat constructive. And it's a far cry from Democrats' bogus "manufactured crisis" rhetoric of recent months:

President Trump is right: There is a crisis at the southern border. Just not the one he rants about...But as record numbers of Central American families flee violence and poverty in their homelands, they are overwhelming United States border systems, fueling a humanitarian crisis of overcrowding, disease and chaos. The Border Patrol is now averaging 1,200 daily arrests, with many migrants arriving exhausted and sick...On Wednesday, the White House sent Congress a request for $4.5 billion in emergency funding to help manage the surge. In a letter to lawmakers, the acting director of the White House’s budget office, Russell Vought, sought to convey the scope of the challenge. “In February, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) encountered more than 76,000 illegal border crossers and inadmissible aliens, and in March that number exceeded 100,000 — the highest monthly level in more than a decade,” Mr. Vought wrote. He described what he said were “alarming numbers” of women and children jammed into Border Patrol stations never intended as long-term shelters.

Funding for vital services is not expected to last through the fiscal year, Mr. Vought said. Most urgently, the program that deals with unaccompanied minors is expected to run dry next month, requiring resources to be diverted from other programs and leading to a further deterioration in conditions...Nearly three-quarters of the funds, $3.3 billion, would be earmarked for humanitarian needs, with much of it flowing to the Office of Refugee Resettlement, the agency responsible for unaccompanied minors. None of the money would go toward Mr. Trump’s border wall. Several hundred million dollars would, however, go toward shoring up border security operations, including increasing the number of detention beds overseen by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE. This, for Democrats, is a nonstarter...The Democratic chairwoman of the House Appropriations Committee, Nita Lowey of New York, said that the administration was seeking billions of dollars to “double down on cruel and ill-conceived policies” and bail out ICE for locking up more migrant families than it could humanely accommodate. But until better policies are in place, Democrats need to find a way to provide money for adequate shelter.

Consider how extraordinary it is that the Times feels compelled to describe any effort to enhance border security -- even excluding 'the wall' -- or to provide additional detention beds as 'nonstarters' for Democrats. Both of these priorities are urgently needed. The editorial rightly tells Democrats that "until better policies are in place," they need to "find a way to provide money for adequate shelter." Unfortunately, a significant portion of the Democratic Party is overtly or effectively in favor of "catch and release" policies that inexorably increase the number of illegal immigrants living inside the United States. A number of them have even proposed decreasing border security and enforcement mechanisms, even as this undeniable crisis is playing out. Meanwhile, we see verifiable evidence of traffickers creating false families to exploit our broken status quo, which creates an incentive to illegally enter US territory with children in tow:



So what are the chances of Congress adopting a sensible, Ron Johnson-esque approach to these acute and unrelenting policy challenges? One can always hold out hope, but consider the political backdrop of House Democrats being unable to rally behind a bill to implement the sort of "clean" DREAM Act they've been demanding for years. Why? They're fighting amongst themselves about whether or not that sort of amnesty (which I generally favor) should be extended to illegal immigrants with criminal records. Yes, really:

House Democrats have shelved plans to advance legislation protecting “Dreamers” next week, delivering a setback to the caucus on a top legislative priority. The bill is stalled because of an intraparty fight over providing citizenship to undocumented immigrants with criminal records, multiple lawmakers and aides said Thursday, and a likely committee vote is now delayed...Democrats are worried the bill as currently written couldn't even survive a committee markup and have privately fretted about the potential amendments Republicans will offer. Senior Democrats are also concerned that Republicans could weaponize the Dreamers bill on the floor and force immigration votes on amendments that could be tough for swing district Democrats to oppose...The bill, authored by Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.), would allow undocumented immigrants to commit three misdemeanors before they’re disqualified from seeking citizenship. But some Democrats worry the language in the bill is too broad and want to consider changes so that committing only certain misdemeanors would allow people to remain on the path to citizenship.

I'll leave you with a question for every Democratic presidential candidates: How many crimes should an illegal immigrant be allowed to commit while maintaining his eligibility to become a citizen?

Since mid-April, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) agents have worked alongside Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents in the El Paso sector to help process alleged families that illegally crossed into the United States. Three teams were initially launched into Las Cruces, New Mexico and El Paso, Texas. A couple weeks later three more HSI teams were sent to the Rio Grande Valley, Del Rio, Yuma, and El Centro Border Patrol Sectors, Breitbart reported.

“We have been working these cases from an investigative standpoint for quite a while,” Acting ICE Director Matthew Albence told Breitbart. “What we’re doing now that is a little different is surging the additional resources to the ports of entry and Border Patrol stations where these individuals are being arrested and being processed. We’ve got teams in seven different locations who are conducting interviews of people who appear to be fraudulent families or where we have concerns that they are not who they say they are.”

According to Albence, three out of every 10 families are frauds.

“The results have been staggering thus far. In just a couple of weeks, we’ve interviewed 256 family units and identified 65 fraudulent families. Almost three out of every ten families we’ve interviewed have become fraudulent," Albence said.

To make matters even worse, the children are being utilized repeatedly to help adults stay in America. The children will show up at the border with the adults, where they pretend to be a family. Once the adults are released the child is sent back to their home country and they're used again, over and over, in the same way. The kids are either flown home or cross back into Mexico illegally, where they catch a bus and go back to their home country.

“Within the first week of the operation, we found a little seven-year-old girl from Guatemala, her mother rented her three times in the past year to be brought here to this country so that the adult can be released," he said.

And, the worst part? It's not uncommon for Border Patrol and ICE agents to see the same children, over and over again.

According to Albence, Congress has the ability to put a stop to this. The Flores Settlement and the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act prevent prevent ICE and Border Patrol agents from detaining illegals while a thorough investigation is completed.

“If they changed the laws to allow us to detain these families as a unit together for a short period of time as we go through the immigration process, this would almost stop,” Albence said.

Back in 2014 when ICE detained these "families" to investigate, the numbers plummeted. Smugglers knew they could no longer get away with the fake families at the border. Albence said that could happen, once again, if Congress takes action. But, until they do, the broken laws and loopholes allow these smugglers to put children in danger.

“This industry of smuggling children and trafficking them has been allowed to flourish. These are extensive criminal organizations. They are transnational criminal organizations that have people that work for these organization both in the foreign countries — their working with the cartels in Mexico — and they’ve got people here domestically," he explained. "They’re all working together to facilitate this scourge of human trafficking.”

One of the main reasons HSI agents were deployed along the border is to help identify these fake families and, ultimately, try to protect the children who are being abused. More likely than not, the children who are being "rented" for their journey to the United States are victims of sexual assault and physical abuse.

The agency is implementing DNA testing this week so agents know whether or not a child truly belongs to the adults claiming him or her. The first set of results are supposed to be released next week.

Well, we still have a national security problem. And no, it’s not this silly Russian collusion myth that’s being peddled by Democrats. The surge in illegal alien arrests at the border is now at a boiling point. One could argue that it’s been that way for the past few months, but April’s detention numbers were staggering. Over 100,000 people were arrested in April, the highest in 12 years (via WaPo):

The number of border-crossers taken into U.S. custody topped 100,000 for the second consecutive month in April, U.S. border officials said Wednesday, deepening the crisis that has derailed President Trump’s immigration agenda and has defied his myriad attempts to fix it.​
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) detained 109,144 migrants along the boundary with Mexico last month, a 6 percent increase from March, as monthly arrests reached their highest point since 2007. Unauthorized border crossings have more than doubled in the past year, and they are on pace to exceed 1 million on an annual basis, as Guatemalan and Honduran families continue streaming north in record numbers with the expectation they will be quickly processed and released from custody.​
“Our apprehension numbers are off the charts,” Carla Provost, chief of the Border Patrol, said in testimony to senators in Washington on Wednesday afternoon. “We cannot address this crisis by shifting more resources. It’s like holding a bucket under a faucet. It doesn’t matter how many buckets we have if we can’t turn off the flow.”​
[…]​
…the evidence of the U.S. immigration system being overwhelmed continues to build.​
DHS officials for the first time this week said the agency is running out of space to jail single adult migrants, who arrived in April at the highest level in five years. One DHS official warned of a complete border breakdown if single adults who cross illegally can no longer be detained and deported.​
The Department of Homeland Security does not have the resources to deal with this endless surge of illegals. Money from other parts of their budget has been diverted to dealing with housing these migrants, especially when it comes to health care. Yet, acting DHS secretary Kevin McAleenan was quite clear that his department needs more money in dealing with this border crisis. At last, The New York Times editorial board has acknowledged that a border crisis exists. The Washington Post also said Trump was right, though Democrats, emboldened by their 2018 midterm wins, are not playing ball. Not one dime for the wall or for ICE, which has become a favorite punching bag for the far left that wants an unfettered flow of illegal aliens into the country.

Luckily, some policy changes are in the works. For starters, the Ninth Circuit, in a surprise ruling, said that applicants for asylum could be sent back to Mexico while their case remains under review by immigration courts. Also, DHS is trying to give Border Patrol on-the-spot authority to accept or deny asylum claims at the border, a move that will certainly meet a legal challenge by left-wingers.

An illegal alien, who previously self-deported to Mexico, has been arrested and charged with vehicular manslaughter after allegedly killing a couple and their 10-year-old daughter in a drunk driving crash.

Ismael Huazo-Jardinez, a 33-year-old illegal alien, is accused of crashing into the trailer home of 38-year-old Jose Alberto Pacheco and 34-year-old Anna Grisalda Pacheco, the parents of a 10-year-old daughter, Angel Alberto Pacheco-Espinoza, and an 11-year-old daughter, in Sutter County, California, over the weekend.

Huazo-Jardinez, according to police, was driving drunk when he crashed into the Pacheco’s home. The family of four was asleep. The crash left both Jose Pacheco and his wife, Anna Pacheco, dead, along with their daughter Angel Pacheco-Espinoza. The only surviving family member, their 11-year-old daughter, remains in the hospital following multiple surgeries, according to the Daily Mail.

“It’s horrible that this happened,” a neighbor and family friend told local media.
Eyewitnesses told police that the illegal alien attempted to flee the scene of the accident after the crash. After being arrested and charged with vehicular manslaughter, an investigator asked that Huazo-Jardinez be held on a $1 million bond. Instead, a California judge set the illegal alien’s bond at $300,000, and he was released from prison after posting bail.

After leaving jail, Huazo-Jardinez was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents, who confirmed that the Mexican national had been living in the country as an illegal alien.

In 2011, ICE officials told the Daily Mail the illegal alien was caught at the U.S.-Mexico border attempting to enter illegally. In that case, he was quickly returned to Mexico.

The illegal alien has a previous criminal history of reckless driving charges and traffic citations but was never turned over to ICE officials for deportation. California’s strict sanctuary state laws shield all illegal aliens, including convicted criminals, from being deported out of the U.S.
Now, Huazo-Jardinez is expected to be in court next month facing the vehicular manslaughter charges. The illegal alien faces up to four years in prison for each count of vehicular manslaughter and an additional three to six years for the fact that he injured other victims.

so how many more Americans and their children are YOU willing to sacrifice to people who aren't even supposed to be here?!

Two illegal aliens, one who came to the United States in 2015 as part of a "family unit" and the other unaccompanied in 2016, were released by the Prince George’s County Police Department after being charged with attempted first degree murder and other crimes. Upon release, they killed 14-year-old girl Ariana Funes-Diaz and dumped her body in a creek.

Prince George's County is a "sanctuary" for illegal aliens. Both are members of the extremely violent gang MS-13.

"Following the recent arrest of two unlawfully present teens suspected in the violent murder of a young girl in Maryland, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers in Baltimore are again seeking to take custody of the illegal aliens through the ICE detainer process following the Prince George’s County Detention Center’s (PGCDC) failure to cooperate," ICE released in a statement. "Josue Rafael Fuentes-Ponce and Joel Ernesto Escobar, both Salvadoran nationals, were previously arrested on May 11, 2018 when they were arrested by Prince George’s County Police Department (PGCPD) for attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, participation in gang activity, conspiracy to commit murder, attempted robbery, and other related charges."

ICE filed a request with the local Maryland police department to hold Fuentes-Ponce and Ernesto Escobar. In other words, they issued a detainer. Instead of being held, the two were released "on an unknown date and time without notification to ICE." At the time, Fuentes-Ponce had already been ordered for removal from the country by an immigration judge.

Last week on May 16, 2019, the same two men were arrested again and charged with first-degree murder.

“As law enforcement officers, we must continue to serve and protect the American public and act in the interest of public safety first,” Baltimore Field Office Director Diane Witte released in a statement about the situation. “These individuals had demonstrated violent criminal behavior before, and because they were released in spite of the lawful detainer, they were afforded an opportunity to take a life.”

Fuentes initially arrived in the U.S. on Dec. 23, 2015 as part of a family unit in Texas. They were ultimately paroled into the U.S. pending the outcome of the immigration case. On March 16, 2017, an immigration judge ordered Fuentes removed in absentia, yet he remained.

Escobar was found by immigration officials to be an unlawfully present unaccompanied juvenile on Aug. 23, 2016, near McAllen, Texas. Escobar was transferred to the custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement, and later released to a family member in the Washington, D.C. area.

A group that raised millions of dollars in a GoFundMe campaign says it has broken ground on a project to build its own stretch of border wall on private property.

We Build the Wall, a group founded by a triple amputee Air Force veteran, said in a series of social media posts on Monday that it had started construction on private property in New Mexico.
The announcement comes months after the group began its GoFundMe campaign to raise private donations for a border wall, and days after a federal judge blocked President Donald Trump from tapping into billions in Defense Department funds for his administration’s wall construction efforts.

“Buckle up, we’re just getting started!” the group wrote in a Facebook post, sharing what it said were images of construction over the weekend.
Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, who chairs We Build the Wall’s advisory board, told CNN on Monday that the group has built a mile of border wall in the El Paso, Texas, area — something he says connects two 21-mile sections of existing fencing.
“Border Patrol told us it’s the No. 1 most important miles to close. The tough terrain always left it off the government list,” Bannon said. “And that’s what we focus on — private land that is not in the program and take the toughest first.”
CNN on Monday observed construction crews working with heavy machinery in an area of the US-Mexico border near the New Mexico-Texas state line.

Daniel Garcia Salinas, the director of a nearby museum on the Mexican side of the border, told CNN the new wall went up rapidly over the weekend, changing the horizon behind the Museo Casa de Adobe.
Garcia said that when he had left the museum Friday afternoon there was no fencing there. By Saturday morning, he said, portions of new wall had been constructed. “They moved very quickly,” he said.

We Build the Wall’s fundraising efforts began in December. At the time, founder Brian Kolfage told CNN he’d decided to move forward because of “inaction from our politicians.” The ongoing campaign has raked in more than $20 million in donations on GoFundMe.
Recent reports detailed how some donors questioned why they hadn’t seen any construction despite the millions donated, but organizers said they had to keep plans secret to protect the project.
“Remember powerful people want to stop our progress, so to not tip anyone off we are radio silent!” Kolfage wrote in a Facebook post shared by the group earlier this month. “The (American Civil Liberties Union) would file a lawsuit to impede our wall success if they knew where and when.”

An illegal immigrant in Phoenix has been arrested and charged after allegedly impregnating an 11-year old girl, according to KTVK-TV.

Police have been investigating 20-year-old Carlos Jacinto Cobos-Perez since November, after evidence surfaced that he was intimately involved with the 11-year-old.
The girl reported to her parents and confirmed to police that she was “in a relationship” with Cobos-Perez and that he had kissed her on the lips in the past. Cobos-Perez also admitted the same, and acknowledged that he was aware of the illegality of the relationship.

Cobos-Perez told police in December that he would no longer have contact with the girl, following the police investigation and interviews.
However, last week the girl was taken to the local children’s hospital and given a pregnancy test, which came back positive. The girl said it was Cobos-Perez who had gotten her pregnant.
The girl’s stepfather told KTVK that he had tried to take matters into his own hands to keep Cobos-Perez away from her, but the police told him to leave the situation alone.
“He (Cobos-Perez) kept insisting.” the stepfather said. “She is an 11-year-old girl. He’s 20. Almost 21. But he said he already knew what he wanted. He got in her head, and she fell for it easily.”

“I was angry. I wanted to take care of him myself, and the police said, ‘Don’t get involved, you’re gonna get yourself in trouble.'”
Cobos-Perez admitted to police that he had unprotected sex with the girl in a parked car near her school. He reportedly wrote in a letter that he knew he could go to jail for the relationship but he didn’t care.
Cobos-Perez has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault and sexual conduct with a minor. He is being held on $150,000 cash-only bond.

(Reuters) - A six-year-old girl from India died of heat stroke in an Arizona desert after her mother left her with other migrants to go in search of water, a medical examiner and U.S. Border Patrol said on Friday.

The girl, Gurupreet Kaur, soon to celebrate her seventh birthday, was found by U.S. Border Patrol west of Lukeville, Arizona on Wednesday, when temperatures reached a high of 108 degrees Fahrenheit (42 Celsius), U.S. Border Patrol and the Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner (PCOME) said.

The girl's death, the second recorded fatality of a migrant child this year in Arizona's southern deserts, highlighted the danger of summer heat as a surge of migrant families, mainly from Central America, cross the U.S.-Mexico border to seek asylum.

An increasing number of Indian nationals are entering the United States from Mexico, according to immigration officials. They are among thousands of Africans and Asian migrants making the arduous journey, led by smuggling cartels.

The girl and her mother were among a group of five Indian nationals dropped off by smugglers in a remote border area at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, 17 miles (27 km) west of Lukeville, a U.S. border town 50 miles (80 km) southwest of Tucson.

After walking some way, the girl's mother and another woman went in search of water, leaving her daughter with another woman and her child.
"Once they went to look for water they never saw them again," said U.S. Border Patrol Agent Jesus Vasavilbaso.

The mother and the other woman wandered in the rugged Sonoran desert wilderness for 22 hours before being found by a U.S. Border Patrol agent who tracked their footprints.

Four hours later, Border Patrol agents found the body of the deceased girl a mile (1.6 km) from the border.

Agents tracked the remaining woman and her 8-year-old daughter into Mexico, before the mother and child re-entered the United States and surrendered to Border Patrol.

The deceased girl died of hyperthermia and her death was ruled an accident, said Greg Hess, PCOME chief medical officer.
Up to May 30, PCOME recorded 58 migrant deaths in southern Arizona, most heat related. It recorded 127 deaths in 2018.
Border Patrol blamed Kaur's death on the smugglers.

"This is a senseless death driven by cartels who are profiting from putting lives at risk," Tucson Chief Patrol Agent Roy Villareal said.
Human rights activist Juanita Molina said U.S. border security measures were also partly to blame, along with the exhausted state of Indian child migrants once they reach the border.

"They're trying to unload people in places where they can avoid detection themselves," Molina, director of Tucson-based Border Action Network, said of smugglers.

"For a young child, death can come very quickly," she added.

The liberal idea of turning a city into a sanctuary for illegal immigrants nearly cost a wheelchair-bound woman her life, after an attacker — who was supposed to be deported to Mexico — repeatedly assaulted her.

According to Breitbart, Francisco Carranza Ramirez, 35, an illegal alien who had been living in America for an undisclosed amount of time, raped a disabled 32-year-old woman in her King County, Washington, home in September 2018.

After she survived the assault, thanks to quick thinking and dialing 911 after she convinced the attacker that she had to use the bathroom, police arrested the man. He was charged with third-degree rape.

Ramirez entered an “Alford plea” at his hearing, which means that while he wasn’t admitting guilt, it’s known that evidence that would be used against him in a trial would mean a conviction.

Although the victim pleaded with the judge to give him a heavier sentence, on June 13 the judge hit Ramirez with 12 months in prison, Breitbart reported.

Making matters worse, he was freed shortly thereafter as he’d already been credited with nine months served while he waited for his hearing.
And because King County takes part in sanctuary city nonsense, it meant further protection for Ramirez from being apprehended by ICE and deported back to Mexico.

In other words, the illegal alien — who would have been taken into custody by ICE in most other cities — attacked the woman and was quickly back on the street.

As with too many criminals who get released earlier than justice would require, he wasn’t done victimizing.
Unfortunately for the woman, it didn’t take long for her to become a repeat victim of the alleged rapist.

Two days after Ramirez was released, the woman told police that she spotted him near her apartment, which was a violation of the court order that he stay away from her.

But criminals, especially rapists, often don’t obey orders — especially those on paper.

He was obviously bent on attacking her again, which was evidenced by what happened the next day — in public view — as the victim was taking a walk with her 3-year-old child.

“He dumped me backwards out of my chair, and was choking me and … I couldn’t scream, I couldn’t breathe, I thought I was going to die in front of my kid,” the woman told Seattle news station KOMO.

She added that her child was extremely upset during the violent encounter.
“He was saying ‘My mama, my mama, don’t hurt my mama,” the woman said.

While Ramirez beat her and strangled her, a good Samaritan witnessed the attack and was able to get the illegal alien off of her before calling police. Unfortunately she suffered cuts, bruises, swelling and a seizure after the brutal attack.

Bryan Wilcox, Acting Field Office Director for Seattle ICE, regrets that his office didn’t have a chance to snag Ramirez while he was in custody.
“I think this was largely preventable,” Wilcox said. “It’s regrettable that we didn’t have the opportunity to properly engage this person while he was detained by King County and perhaps take him into custody of our own.”

The suspect is now clean-shaven with a haircut, according to the King Country Sheriff’s Office PIO account on Twitter.

The state of Washington has a staggering 20 jurisdictions that act as sanctuaries for illegal aliens who have committed crimes against American citizens.

There’s something inherently wrong with that.

Given this horrific incident and similar ones that will surely follow, someone needs to do something to prevent them — and fast.

Four bodies were found Sunday evening near the Rio Grande River, southeast of the Anzalduas Park in Las Paloma Wildlife Management Area, an area rife with human trafficking, authorities said.

The deceased appeared to be two infants, a toddler and a 20-year-old woman, Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra told ABC News Rio Grande Valley, Texas, affiliate KRGV.

Because the bodies were found on federal property, the FBI will handle the investigation.

The four people may have died from dehydration, investigators told KRGV.

ABC News
