Border Patrol officials say 8 migrants were found dead in Rio Grande at Texas – Brospar Daily News

VIDEO ABOVE: New York and Washington are scrambling for Texas bus immigration, officials said Friday, at least after dozens attempted a dangerous crossing near Eagle Pass, Texas. Eight migrants were found dead in the Rio Grande. U.S. Customs and Border Protection, along with Mexican officials, were spotted Thursday as a large group of people crossed the river after several days of heavy rain that caused particularly rapids. According to a statement from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. officials recovered six bodies, while the Mexican team recovered two more. US workers rescued 37 other people from the river and arrested 16 others, while Mexican officials arrested 39 migrants, the agency said. Officials on both sides of the border continue to search for possible victims, CBP said. The CPD did not specify which country(ies) the migrants came from, or provide further information on the rescues or searches. The local Texas agency involved did not immediately respond to a request for additional information. The Del Rio Border Patrol area, which includes Eagle’s Mouth, is quickly becoming the busiest illegal border crossing. The industry could soon overtake Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, which has been in the spotlight for the past decade. The region attracts immigrants from dozens of countries, many of whom are families with young children. The area, which stretches 245 miles along the Rio Grande, is particularly dangerous because the river can feel fast and change quickly. Crossing the river can be a challenge even for able-bodied swimmers. At a press conference last month, the CPD said it had found the bodies of more than 200 migrants who died in the area from October to July. As the number of attempted border crossings rose, so did the death toll, according to surveys by the United Nations International Organization for Migration and others. Over the past three decades, thousands of people have died trying to enter the United States from Mexico, often from dehydration or drowning. In June, 53 migrants were found dead or dead on a San Antonio road in the deadliest tragedy. Take the lives of migrants smuggling across the border from Mexico.

At least eight migrants have been found dead in the Rio Grande after dozens attempted a dangerous crossing near Eagle Pass, Texas, officials said Friday.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Mexican officials made the discovery Thursday while responding to a large group of people crossing the river, which is flowing particularly rapidly after days of heavy rain. US officials recovered six bodies, while the Mexican team recovered two more, according to a statement from US Customs and Border Protection.

US crews rescued 37 other people from the river and arrested 16, while Mexican authorities arrested 39 migrants, the agency said. Officials on both sides of the border continue to search for possible victims, CBP said.

The CPD did not specify which country(ies) the migrants came from, or provide further information on the rescue or search. The local Texas agency involved did not immediately respond to a request for additional information.

The Border Patrol Del Rio district, which includes Eagle Pass, is quickly becoming the busiest route for illegal border crossings. The industry could soon overtake Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, which has been in the spotlight for the past decade. The region attracts immigrants from dozens of countries, many of whom are families with young children.

The area, which stretches 245 miles along the Rio Grande River, is particularly dangerous because the river can feel fast and change quickly. Crossing the river can be a challenge even for good swimmers.

In a press release last month, the CPD said it had found more than 200 bodies of dead migrants in the department from October to July.

As the number of attempted border crossings rose, so did the death toll, according to surveys by the United Nations International Organization for Migration and others. Over the past three decades, thousands of people have died trying to enter the United States from Mexico, often from dehydration or drowning.

In June, 53 migrants were found dead or dead in a tractor-trailer on a San Antonio road, the deadliest tragedy to claim the lives of migrants smuggled across the border from Mexico.
