Another Child, 2, Dropped by Smuggler Over Border Wall: CBP Video

Chief Patrol Agent Aaron Heitke of the San Diego area published a distressing video of a smuggler dropping a 2-year-old child from an 18 feet high border wall to the child’s father, who was standing at mid-altitude on a concrete structure.

Heitke said that the incident occurred on Sunday and that, luckily, the child wasn’t hurt.

“Sunday, #BorderPatrol agents witnessed a smuggler drop a two-year-old child from atop the 18-foot-high border wall into the arms of the child’s father,” wrote Heitke. “This event could have been catastrophic. Luckily, the child was not injured.”

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released an operational update last week, which stated that more than 172,000 illegal immigrants were apprehended in March along the Southwest border.

Compared to February, March has seen a 100 percent increase of unaccompanied minors from Central America—18,890, the agency stated.

Additionally, Chief Patrol Agent Austin Skero of the Rio Grande sector published two shocking photos, showing a lot of people stuffed in under boards in a trailer.

“An inspection located 2 children (ages 10 and 15) trapped under the trailer boards with 18 adults,” Skero wrote.

“With temperatures on the rise, smuggling attempts like these have a high potential to turn deadly.”

The chief patrol agent didn’t specify the origin of the illegal immigrants.

The Biden administration is considering sending cash to Central American countries to alleviate economic problems that motivate their citizens to leave for the United States.

Alongside the conditional cash transfer program, they are also considering sending CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus vaccines to those countries, the White House’s southern border coordinator Roberta Jacobson told Reuters.

“We’re looking at all of the productive options to address both the economic reasons people may be migrating, as well as the protection and security reasons,” the White House official said.
