Abandoned 10-year-old illegal found sobbing in Texas desert




Quote:The U.S. Border Patrol has released a heartbreaking video taken by an agent who was approached by an abandoned 10-year-old migrant boy last week in a Texas desert near the U.S.-Mexico border.

The child is seen sobbing and asking for help, telling the off-duty agent who was on his way home, "They can rob me, kidnap me, I'm scared."

What are the details?
The video is taken from the perspective of the agent who is seen driving down the road when he sees the boy walking toward him. The agent parks and exits his vehicle, and the boy asks him twice in Spanish, "Can you help me?"

"What happened?" the agent asks, according to translation provided by CNN.

"It's that I was walking with a group and they left me behind, and I don't know where they're at," the boy cries.

The agent then asks, "You don't know where you're at? They left you behind alone?"

And the boy replies, "Of course they left me."

"They left you behind by yourself?" the agent asks again, "You're not traveling with your mom or dad or anybody?"

The child, still sobbing, says, "Nobody. I was with a group to turn myself in with you, and they left me behind and I came to look for help."

"They left you behind and told you to seek help?" the agent asked.

"No," said the boy, "I came looking because I didn't know where to go, and they can also kidnap me."


According to Univision, the footage was first released on social media, and the border agent did take the unidentified child into his vehicle and to safety. The outlet reported that the boy "survived throughout the night in an area of the desert where rattlesnakes and wild animals abound."

Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Chief Brian Hastings also shared the video with CNN "to underscore the concern over the danger associated with the increase in unaccompanied children" crossing into the U.S.

According to Hastings, "migrant families are 'self-separating' in Mexico, sending children alone to cross into the United States after first having been expelled," the outlet reported.

Anything else?
The abandoned boy was reportedly found April 1, just one day after the Border Patrol released footage of smugglers dropping 3-year-old and 5-year-old sisters from a 14-foot border wall and abandoning them. All three children were taken into U.S. Customs and Border Protection custody for care.

RE: Abandoned 10-year-old illegal found sobbing in Texas desert
I would be in 100% favor of a military takeover of central and northern South American countries. Put Mexico on notice that they will help or we will take over their county as well. Seek help from more stable democratic S. American countries. The rest of the world can **** off. This has become a serious national security issue - more so than middle east oil supply. Maintain the individual countries as US territories, disband all govt institutions at regional and national level. All out war on cartels. I'd rather be in the nation-building business in our own hemisphere than on the other side of the planet. Allow for independence under new constitutions after a 25 year period. No individual currently in power or related to a person in power at a national level will be allowed to be either a representative as a US territory or run for office after the 25 year period.

It's crazy how a simple statement on the campaign trail can lead to an abandoned kid wondering alone lost in the desert scared of being robbed and/or kidnapped. I have a feeling he isn't the only one. And no, the current admin has NO CLUE how to go about correcting this mess.

Propaganda Phantom... where were all these concerned threads when Trump was in office? While I'm happy to see threads of concern for immigrants at the border and their wellbeing... I have to wonder what magically overtook your conscience that only since January are these threads of concern for children's wellbeing at the border being posted?



That said, our border is a mess and has been for decades. Democrats alongside Republicans have let us and immigrants to the south down.

My conscience is the same. I didn't give a fck about them then and I don't give a fck about them now. Toss em back over the wall. Not our problem.

They don't care about actual people. The left claims compassion but they use and disregard people.

Anyone who approves of Demleft tactics is just as cold-hearted, uncompassionate and vile as the globalists who sit back and enjoy screwing with people's lives.

Not sure what you are going on about. There were't thousands upon thousands of solo migrant kids crashing the border then. This is all on the current admin. Hell, they have even recently said they will complete some of the wall. That tells me they KNOW they messed up. I guess in this case, words really do have consequences.

Just demonstrating the hypocrisy of the left. They're the ones who virtue signal about how they care.

And yet when they're in control they hide from their failures. And this isn't just a run-of-the-mill failure. This is a human catastrophe.

So this who "look at the right phantom" defense is nothing but desperation and deflection.

Seriously?

Where is all the outrage from the Left about the current conditions children are being kept in at the border? I guess all the rage about “kids in cages” was feigned outrage.

Trump had worked out deals with all the major player countries to stop this onslaught and was building a wall - which served as much as a symbolic deterrent as a physical barrier - and reinforced a consistent message that the only way into the US was through proper channels.

People don’t pay traffickers $20,000 to smuggle in their kid when they know they won’t likely be successful. Biden let them know they would be successful, so here we are.

You're full of shite. Where were all the abandoned children left in the desert when Trump was POTUS? Your side started this crap with kids in cages and you just keep spreading the democrat lies.

RE: Abandoned 10-year-old illegal found sobbing in Texas desert
Quote:Some Democrat lawmakers and immigration activists hammered U.S. President Joe Biden’s approach to the border crisis by wasting valuable time on determining the long-term root causes of migration rather than dealing with the problem now.

Biden has been reaching out to Congress members, staffers, and activists to push a narrative that the problem at the U.S. border is mainly former President Donald Trump’s fault in combination with the “root causes” of migration in Central America, Politico reported Saturday.

However, some Democrat lawmakers assert that the government is already fully conscious of what attracts people to America after looking into the issue for decades.

Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) welcomed Biden’s effort to address long-term causes of migration surge with combating root causes of migration but stressed that the U.S. also needs a solution for the problem afflicting the border now.

Cuellar, a border congressman known to criticize immigration policies from his party, told Politico:

We already know what the root causes are. We can send researchers down there, but we know the answers already. The question is, how do you address this issue? Private investment is going to be key. Foreign aid and private investment take time. It’s not going to be done today, tomorrow.

Biden is “betting big on nuance” to change what Americans think of immigration as a poll released Monday showed a majority disprove of the commander-in-chief’s handling of border security and immigration, particularly the flood of unaccompanied children, Politico noted, adding:

The revised approach from the administration is a tacit acknowledgment that their initial posture — in which they downplayed the problem and steadfastly refused to call it a crisis —wasn’t working, at least politically. But when it comes to actually fixing the conditions forcing migrants to flee their home countries, the White House has its work cut out for it.

On Monday, the Associated Press-NORC released a poll showing the border’s situation has put a dent on Biden’s approval rating on immigration.

A majority of respondents disapprove of the president’s handling of border security (55 percent) and immigration overall (56 percent).

More respondents disapprove of how Biden is handling the growing number of unaccompanied migrant children arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border.

While 40 percent of Americans somewhat or strongly disapprove of how the president is dealing with unaccompanied migrant children, only about a quarter strongly or somewhat approve. The remaining 36 percent neither support nor disapprove.

More Democrats (44 percent) approve of Biden’s way of handling unaccompanied children than disapproved (15 percent) by a substantial margin. Leaked pictures have shown the children in crowded cage-like enclosures.

Democrats blasted Trump for holding migrant children in detention centers.

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) stressed that the Biden administration needs to look beyond the root causes of immigration to solve the ongoing situation.

“We can’t just deal with the symptoms,” said Cleaver, who appeared more receptive to Biden’s new approach of changing how people view immigration. “That’s all that we’ve been dealing with for the last two, maybe three decades, are the symptoms. That won’t work anymore.”

The Trump administration warned the Biden folks that there would be problems if they rescinded the former president’s border security measures.

Some immigrant rights advocates suggested that Biden dismantled his predecessors’ border policies without a clear strategy to fill the vacuum left behind.

“The White House needed to be or should have been more proactive, framing and telling the story three weeks before they really started to do it. If you don’t define the narrative, you give your opponents the power to do so,” Lorella Praeli, executive director of Community Change Action, a progressive grassroots group, told Politico.

Republicans who have traveled to the border have lambasted Biden for not calling the situation at the U.S.-Mexico international boundary a “crisis.”

GOP lawmakers who have visited the border said the crisis is putting the lives of unaccompanied children and family migrants at risk, including girls who can get raped on the journey to the U.S.

They also pointed out the potential for jihadis from the Middle East and Africa and other terrorist countries entering the nation.

Biden appointed Vice President Kamala Harris to lead the White House response to what a majority of surveyed Americans consider a crisis despite the administration’s claim that it is only a “challenge.”

The president charged Harris with focusing on the root causes of migration that Cuellar, Clever, and activists note are not secrets.

Various U.S. presidents have devoted billions in U.S. taxpayer funds to improve Latin American conditions to prevent people from leaving to no avail. Biden has promised $4 billion.

Republicans and independents largely drive the disapproval rates of Biden’s handling of immigration and border security, the AP-NORC poll showed.

You know, it was your pedophile "president" who used the argument against Trump and claimed that he was separating children at the border. He responded that coyotes are using these kids and your side excoriated him over that to claim that he was simply being cruel, and looky looky, Trump is being proven correct. Coyotes are using these kids.

Personally, my conscience hasn't changed. The kid was used. It's sad, but it's not our problem. He needs to be returned to his country and let them sort it out.

That's laughable. You're for military conquests (which it is) of our southern neighbors. Heck, why don't we start fixing our country first then perhaps when we know how to do THAT perhaps we can offer them statehood. I'll grant you something I'll bet their countries have a lot more to offer landwise than those wanting PR as a state.

As for this: " No individual currently in power or related to a person in power at a national level will be allowed to be either a representative as a US territory or run for office after the 25 year period." Here in our OWN country we have politicians that make those in those 3rd world countries look like saints...and I'm talking about Peloser, Schemer, Schiff, etc. etc. Let's start with them.

Look, I know you're outraged, so am I but your solutions will not come to fruition and is just wishful thinking.
