Smugglers drop 2 children over USA border wall

Migrants from Central America who arrived illegally from Mexico to the US to seek asylum across the Rio Grande river speak with border patrol agents after arriving at a makeshift processing center run by border patrol agents at the border city of Roma

On Tuesday evening, a Santa Teresa agent utilizing camera technology observed a smuggler dropping two young children from the top of the approximately 14-foot-high border barrier. The child bounces off the ground and lays stunned before getting up.

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. "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", stated El Paso Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gloria I. Chavez. The agents found the Ecuadoran children, who were "alert" at the time. They now remain at a Border Patrol temporary holding facility pending placement by the U.S. Health and Human Services Department.

In an effort to speed things up, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has ordered case workers who are tasked with facilitating these transfers to work seven days a week. CBP said the girls remain in the agency's custody. The tent complex held more than 4,100 migrants, including 3,200 unaccompanied children, a border patrol official said.

President Joe Biden's administration is facing growing pressure to confront the situation and criticisms about how the unaccompanied minors have been cared for while under United States government custody.

The lawmakers also called out Biden for reversing Trump-era immigration policies, a move which has encouraged migrants to make the risky journey north to the U.S.
