Shocking Video: Mexican smugglers dropping 3 and 5-year-old kids from 14-feet high border wall
Mexican human traffickers were caught on camera dropping two girls, ages 3 and 5. The incident took place at night El Paso Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gloria Chavez posted disturbing footage of the transfer of children.
“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!” she wrote.

The girls were not injured and were rescued in time by the border patrol, authorities said. The smugglers managed to escape from the scene without crossing the United States border.
"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, according to Fox News. "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."
This is the second outrageous incident in which children have been involved. On March 16th US Border Patrol saved 6-month-old child almost drowning in Rio Grande. Her mother suffered a broken leg in a fight with smugglers.
Also, the Governor of Texas wrote a letter to the administration of the President of the United States with a demand to explain why tens of thousands of children are kept in cages. Around the same time, Project Veritas released a secretly recorded video showing hundreds of migrants sleeping on the ground under a bridge, watched over by armed border agents.
