Border Patrol Releases Appalling Video Of Smugglers Dropping 2 Little Girls From High Border Fence
No crisis at the southern border?… On Wednesday US Border Patrol officials made public a deeply disturbing video showing human smugglers scaling a 14-foot border barrier in the New Mexico desert with small children in tow.
El Paso Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gloria Chavez released the video which shockingly shows two little girls being dropped from the full height of the fence onto to the hard surface below.
Smugglers, under cover of night, scaled a 14 ft. border barrier and cruelly dropped 2 young children in the middle of the New Mexico desert. The girls, ages 3 & 5, were left miles from the nearest residence. Thank you STN Agents for rescuing these children! @CBP @CBPWestTexas pic.twitter.com/U91y2g8Lk1

The incident which happened Tuesday occurred during the middle of the night, and the Border Patrol statement indicted the dangerous fence-scaling involved a 5-year old and 3-year old girl who were essentially thrown over by two unknown adults. The children survived the terrifying ordeal and have since been identified as sisters from Ecuador.
“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 in a statement.
“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.
The first little girl seen falling in the video appeared to struggle for a long time to get to her feet, and likely sustained an injury. While the extent of their possible injuries and trauma from the fall were later reported as minimal. They are now said to be safe after being completely abandoned by the smugglers in the middle of the desert.
Further details of the aftermath were reported as follows:
Other border agents were alerted of the incident and directed to the remote location near Santa Teresa, New Mexico, where they rescued the two unaccompanied migrant children — a 5-year-old girl and a 3-year-old girl. The pair are sisters from Ecuador and both were “alert” when agents found them, according to a press release from CBP.
They were then transferred to an area hospital for “precautionary reasons and further evaluation.”
The smugglers are seen in the video fleeing on foot back on the Mexican side of the border after tossing what appear to be backpacks over for the children. Chavez indicated the pair were left “miles from the nearest residence” but were spotted only with the help of surveillance technology.
Based on current policy, after three days in their custody CBP will likely transfer the children to the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement, whose detention centers “specifically licensed to house young migrants” have been center of controversy of late – though one that has been very “inconvenient” for Democrats given it’s now Biden in the White House and not Trump.
Meanwhile and with no parking lot dramatics this time…
