US Border Patrol saved 6-month-old child almost drowning in Rio Grande during pursuit human traffickers
About 220 Mexican illegal immigrants tried to sneak across the US border on rafts. When border patrols caught up with traffickers, the criminals threw a 6-month-old baby and his mother with a broken leg into the water.
According to The Post Millennial, the mother paid $ 3,500 to be transported to the United States. In addition to them, the Texas Department of Public Safety's South Texas Special Operations Group managed to detain an additional 67 adult illegal immigrants and 150 children.
"Our South Texas Special Operations Group, Texas Rangers Division, are an integral asset in border security. On 03/16/21, this specialized group assisted U.S. #BorderPatrol in Roma with a 6mo female child who had been thrown out of a raft and into the Rio Grande River by smugglers.
"The child's mother had been assaulted by smugglers in Mexico resulting in a broken leg. This specialized group is a highly trained tactical team whose primary responsibility is to carry out specific missions, usually along the Texas-Mexico border region or wherever needed.
"The team is designed to conduct both overt and extended covert operations in remote areas where conventional law enforcement cannot operate. The teams focus is to gather intelligence, conduct interdiction, and disruption of criminal activity usually associated with drug cartels."
The Texas Department of Public Safety announced that the incident involving the rescue of the child and his mother took place on March 16. Official information appeared only two weeks later.
