Unaccompanied brother intercepted by CBP with contact details of loved ones scrawled on t-shirts

A heartbreaking photo shows two unaccompanied brothers aged just two and six years old being intercepted by border agents after traveling from Guatemala to Texas.

The siblings, who have not been identified, had contact details of US-based relatives scrawled on their t-shirts.

Border Patrol agents found the children Tuesday morning near La Grulla, Texas, along with a group of more than a dozen other Guatemalan migrants, including six other children stranded without legal guardians.

Both boys had a parent’s information in the United States written on their white shirts, which Border Patrol agents must rely on to get the children to safety.

It is not known if the young people are on their way to these relatives and if officers are able to contact their relatives.

Their plight glaringly exposes the ongoing crisis on the southern border, which has seen a record number of people intercepted crossing illegally – and conservatives blaming President Biden’s politics for encouraging them to attempt the journey often dangerous.

A Border Patrol statement read, “Many of the unaccompanied children encountered by Border Patrol are very young and unable to provide names or phone numbers of family members.”

“To locate a next of kin (of a child), officers must rely on information written on clothing or handwritten notes found among their belongings, adults within the group, and/or their country’s consulate. ‘origin.”

Unguarded minors who arrive at the US southern border are not, unlike some illegal migrants, immediately deported.

The children were found with a group of 18 illegal immigrants, including six other children, in an area near La Grulla, Texas.  Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley have intercepted more than 70,000 unaccompanied minors this year alone

Instead, children are turned over to federal agents until the child’s family or other connections can be located in the United States.

If no family can be found, unaccompanied children should be sent back to their country of origin.

Current policies, according to New York Postenabled more than 140,000 unaccompanied migrant children to arrive at the southern border in 2022 alone.

It has also increased the number of illegal migrants who attempt to pose as children in order to avoid deportation. Border Patrol said it has apprehended nearly 700 child imposters in the El Paso, Texas area since October.

This week, border authorities released new figures showing that more than 2 million arrests of illegal migrants at the southern border took place this fiscal year. This figure is a considerable increase from the 1.6 million arrests in 2021, and represents an increase of more than 400% compared to the 405,000 arrests made in 2020.

Biden’s border crisis hits another yearly record – with a month to spare! Two MILLION migrants arrested at the Mexican border in one year for the first time in history

More than two million migrants have been arrested at the Mexican border in one year for the first time in history.

The record, revealed in Customs and Border Patrol records compiled at the border, comes amid a steady stream of migrants into Texas, Arizona and California.

The numbers show a peak this spring, with 241,000 encounters with law enforcement, with numbers remaining above 200,000 every month since even after a drop.

The total was 203,000 in August.

The figures cover an 11-month period, so the grand total won’t be revealed until after the year-end on September 30.

Migrants from Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua were apprehended by law enforcement at 56,000 last month, down from 50,000 in July and 23,000 in August, administration officials said. This includes 18,000 encounters with Venezuelans, mostly around Eagle Pass and Del Rio, Texas.

It is more difficult for the United States to send migrants back to these host countries because of political tensions.

Border Patrol said officers in the Rio Grande region alone have encountered more than 70,000 unaccompanied minors this year.

GOP leaders across the country have underscored the seriousness of the border crisis and point to the lack of capacity available in U.S. border towns to deal with the continuing flood of illegal migrants.

Last week, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis drew both praise and backlash when he sent 50 migrants to Massachusetts’ elite vacation island, Martha’s Vineyard. Now the governor appears to be ferrying more migrants to Delaware, particularly an area near President Joe Biden’s Rehoboth home.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott flew migrants from his state to Washington, DC. A group was recently dropped off outside the vice-presidential residence of Kamala Harris.

Red state governors denied acting out of cruelty, but instead highlighted the Biden administration’s failure to respond meaningfully to the escalating border crisis.

“I am so upset that this is happening.

The 50 migrants were put on a bus by Governor Charlie Baker (R) less than 48 hours after landing, and given a police escort to take a ferry to Joint Base on Cape Cod 32 miles from Martha’s Vineyard.

Lawyers for 30 of the Venezuelan migrants flown to the vineyard earlier this week called for a criminal investigation into DeSantis, accusing him of “falsely promising them (the migrants) jobs and immigration assistance.”

He is accused of “preying” on migrants, although DeSantis said the migrants knew where they were going and signed waivers before boarding the plane.

On Tuesday, Democratic Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar of Texas announced he would open an investigation into whether the migrants had been “kidnapped” by DeSantis.

He initially claimed there was a degree of criminal activity involved.

DeSantis has since aggressively dismissed the claims, pointing out the Texas sheriff’s hypocrisy after 50 migrants died in a tractor-trailer over the summer in his jurisdiction.
