    Migrant Stowaways Lose Limbs After Train Accident in Texas near Border

    Migrant Stowaways Lose Limbs After Train Accident in Texas near Border



    by RANDY CLARK 14 Oct 2021

    EAGLE PASS, Texas — Members of a Honduran migrant family suffered severe injuries after falling from a moving freight train. Three of the four family members lost limbs. A Maverick County Sheriff deputy came across the grizzly scene and summoned medical personnel to assist on Tuesday.

    A 32-year-old man’s arm was severed above the right wrist after falling under a moving train. The man’s one year old child was injured as the wheels severed a finger. The man’s wife suffered a leg amputation. According to a Border Patrol report, the family members were not placed into custody at the accident scene due to the severity of the injuries. The family’s other child was uninjured.

    Four unrelated migrants, later arrested by the Border Patrol, provided first aid to the family until law enforcement arrived. The family was transferred to a hospital in San Antonio, Texas, for advanced care.

    Freight trains are notoriously unfriendly to stowaways. Accidents and fatalities can occur when migrants are struck, crushed by shifting cargo, suffocated, or overexposed. As reported by Breitbart Texas, law enforcement authorities across the southwest border are routinely encountering migrants using the freight trains to leave the immediate border area.

    With the ongoing surge in border crossings and accompanying burdens of providing humanitarian aid, fewer agents are available to conduct train inspections. The staffing challenges preclude the Border Patrol from conducting routine freight train inspections at rail yards. The task mostly falls to local and state law enforcement authorities as a result.

    How are these people going to work and care for themselves? I know they probably won't be sent back.

    EXPEL THEM ALL.

    Their health problems are NOT a free pass to come here.

    We have millions of our Veterans who have lost limbs fighting for our country.

    Send them back!
