2 Girls Dropped Over U.S. Border Wall

U.S. Border Patrol officials said agents rescued two young children Tuesday night after smugglers dropped the children from the top of the border wall in a remote area west of El Paso, Texas.

A Border Patrol agent operating a camera pointed at a section of the barrier just west of El Paso spotted the two young girls, ages 3 and 5, as they were dropped from the top of the 14-foot wall. Border Patrol released a video showing the smuggler on the wall dangling the children before dropping them one by one. The older girl quickly stands up after she lands on the ground. The younger girl sits for a while before getting on her feet. The individual on the fence also tosses a small bag to the U.S. side of the border with the children. The video then shows two men quickly leaving the area on the Mexican side of the barrier.

The children were alert when agents arrived at the scene in a remote desert area of Santa Teresa, N.M., just west of El Paso, according to a statement from the Border Patrol.

“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,” said El Paso Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gloria Chavez.

“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 said.

The little girls are among a growing number of children and teenagers, many from Central America, crossing the U.S.-Mexico border alone, about 9,400 in February according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The majority arrive at the border with a smuggler paid for by a relative in the U.S. Many of the young children are coming to the U.S. to reunite with parents.
