    Border Patrol Agents Rescue 63 Migrants from Rio Grand River

    Border Patrol Agents Rescue 63 Migrants from Rio Grand River

    Release Date: April 26, 2019

    Increased Water Releases from Amistad Dam Creating Dangerous River Conditions

    DEL RIO, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to Del Rio Sector rescued 63 migrants from the swift current of the Rio Grande River in three separate incidents.

    Agents assigned to Del Rio Sector rescued
    63 migrants from the swift current of the Rio
    Grande River in three separate incidents.

    An increase in water release from Amistad Dam has created a high flow to the Rio Grande River and is expected to approach and remain near flood stage for the next 25 days. Water is regularly transferred downstream to meet irrigation and municipal water demand in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, which creates dangerous conditions to anyone attempting to cross the Rio Grande River and to agents operating on or near the river.Crossing the Rio Grande River is extremely dangerous under the best of conditions,said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz. With the increased water levels, the river is running faster and higher than normal making any attempt to cross the river even more treacherous.

    Thanks to our agents’ vigilance, these attempted crossings did not result in the loss of life.”


    On April 12, Border Patrol agents from the Brackettville Station encountered 14 people stranded on an island in the middle of the Rio Grande River. Agents along with members of the Border Patrol Search Trauma and Rescue team deployed a rescue boat with swift-water equipment and safely transported all the people to the U.S. side of the river.

    On April 14, a CBP Air and Marine Operations helicopter pilot patrolling in the area spotted a group of 21 people stranded on the same island. The group was observed attempting to cross the swift-flowing river, only to be nearly swept away and forced to return to the island. The Del Rio Station marine unit and agents from the Brackettville Station were able to safely rescue all 21 people and transport them in a patrol boat to the U.S. side of the river.


    On April 18, agents from the Brackettville Station encountered another large group of people stranded on the island unable to return to Mexico or continue crossing the river to the United States. Border Patrol marine agents responded to the area with a patrol boat and successfully rescued 28 people from the island.


    All of the migrants were from Central America including unaccompanied children and family units. They were processed per U.S. Customs and Border Protection guidelines.


    U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between official ports of entry. CBP is charged with securing the borders of the United States while enforcing hundreds of laws and facilitating lawful trade and travel.

    Another misleading headline----they were stranded on an Island and our BP just aided their entrance,

    Hey, there are millions stranded in Honduras---soon we will be seeing headlines of BP sending planes to "rescue" them also.

    Another Migrant Drowns in Texas Border River

    Del Rio Sector Border Patrol agents recovered yet another body of a migrant who appears to have drowned while illegally crossing the Rio Grande border river. This is the fifth such drowning in this sector this fiscal year.

    Marine agents assigned to the Eagle Pass Border Patrol station encountered a body in the Rio Grande about one mile from a legal port of entry. It appears the migrant attempted to illegally cross the river that separates the U.S. from Mexico, according to information obtained from U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials.

    The marine agents worked with Eagle Pass Fire Department rescue teams to recover the body of the deceased migrant.


    “Del Rio Sector has rescued over 200 people this fiscal year, an increase of over 800 percent from the same time last year,” Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz said in a written statement. “Even with our agents on patrol and making these rescues, the Rio Grande is unforgiving and will take its toll.”


    “Any loss of life is tragic and this unfortunate event serves as a reminder of the dangers present when crossing the Rio Grande,” the chief stated.


    Officials did not disclose any information about the deceased migrant.


    Del Rio Sector officials reported this is the fifth water-related death in the sector this fiscal year. Fiscal Year 2018 began on October 1, 2018, and runs through September 30, 2019.


    Most recently, Del Rio Sector agents recovered another body in roughly the same area as this weeks discovery, Breitbart News reported.


    Agents also recovered the first migrant’s body just five days before Christmas, Breitbart News reported. The migrant appeared to have drowned while illegally crossing the border in an area where no physical barrier exists.


    On Valentine’s Day, agents recovered a second who died while crossing from Piedras Negras, Coahuila. This was about the time a group of caravan migrants arrived on the Mexican side of the border.


    About a week later, the Eagle Pass marine agents recovered yet another body. Agents were not able to identify any of the deceased migrants at the time of their respective recoveries.


    In addition to the four drowning deaths, at least two others died after illegally crossing the border.


    Del Rio Sector
    agents also conducted marine rescue operations that saved the lives of dozens in distress while attempting to cross from Mexico. Many of those rescues included young children.


    Since the beginning of April, at least 42 migrants died while or after crossing the border from Mexico into Texas–at least 77 nationally, according to the International Organization for Migrants’ Missing Migrant Project. This number is expected to rise during the summer months as cartel-connected human smugglers push large groups into the remote areas of the Texas-New Mexico-Arizona border areas.

    It must be a requirement for Bob Price to mention the word migrant 11 times in every article.

    Good point. If they were being stopped from attempting the crossing from the Mexican side of the border this would not be an issue!
