    Unhappy Border Patrol K-9 Dies from Extreme Heat While Tracking Illegal Immigrants

    A U.S. Border Patrol police dog (K-9) died from extreme heat complications, while looking for illegal immigrants in distress. The K-9 and his partner had been at a ranch in the remote area known as Falfurrias which is located about 80 miles north of the Texas/Mexico border.

    Agents assigned to the area located in Brooks County were tracking down a group of illegal immigrants that needed help on Monday. K-9 Lazer and his handler had been part of the group searching for the illegal immigrants in the remote area when the dog began to show signs of heat exhaustion, information provided to Breitbart Texas by U.S. Border Patrol revealed.



    The agent tried to cool down his partner and rushed him to a veterinary clinic. The efforts to save the dog at the clinic proved unsuccessful, as Lazer eventually died from heat related complications. According to Border Patrol, Lazer had been behind 93 apprehensions during his time with the agency.

    The U.S. Border Patrol has an immigration checkpoint near the ranching city of Falfurrias. While the checkpoint is approximately 80 miles north of the Texas border, the area continues to see very large numbers of drug and human smugglers traversing the area.

    In an effort to get around the checkpoint, human smugglers force illegal immigrants to take long hikes across the harsh brush terrain of the ranches near Falfurrias. As the summer temperatures reach over the 100 degree mark, additional dangers are faced not only by the immigrants but also by the agents and the K-9s that work in the area.

    “K-9 Lazer was an asset to the Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Search Trauma and Rescue (BORSTAR) team. He was used in numerous trainings, events and apprehensions,” said Border Patrol RGV Sector Chief Manuel Padilla. “Our sector suffered a great loss as these loyal companions have given their lives to ensure their handlers, fellow agents and out community members stay safe.”

    Oh that just breaks my heart. Poor dog. They are so smart, so earnest, so devoted to their mission, so much training and effort put into each one to ready them for the job, lost forever, searching for illegal aliens who shouldn't even be in our country to begin with.

    BUILD THE WALL!

    DEPORT ILLEGAL ALIENS!

    ENFORCE THE LAW!

    STOP THE CARNAGE!

    Illegal aliens are the most despicable of all people on the planet in my opinion. They have no regard for the law, no regard for Americans, no regard for the members of law enforcement who have to handle them, process them, deal with them, no regard for taxpayers, no regard for anyone but themselves. They are the most selfish, self-centered, despicable people on earth, and it doesn't matter what country they're from or what race or ethnicity they are. They are all the same. Moochers and Cowards.
