    Texas Deputy Sheriff: County Spends ‘Half Of Our Budget’ On Illegal Alien Body Recove

    Texas Deputy Sheriff: County Spends ‘Half Of Our Budget’ On Illegal Alien Body Recovery

    March 24, 2015 - 4:10 PM

    CNSNews.com) - Chief Deputy Sheriff Benny Martinez of Brooks County, Texas, revealed to members of Congress Tuesday that since 2008, his officers have recovered the bodies of 443 illegal aliens along their 934-square-mile section of the Southwest U.S. border at the southernmost tip of Texas. This is a rate of about six bodies per month.

    Although the Brooks County Sheriff’s Department has spent nearly $700,000 in body recovery efforts -- about half of the department’s budget -- Martinez estimates they recover less than half of all illegal aliens who die while being smuggled across the unsecured border in Brooks County alone.

    “The sad reality is that many of those who are being led through the brush by the smuggler do not survive the demanding journey,” Martinez explained during Tuesday’s hearing before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

    “In the past six and a half years, the county has recovered 443 bodies of undocumented crossers,” he added. “We estimate that we recover less than half of all those who perish.”

    “From 2008 to 2014, Brooks County has spent almost $700,000 for body recoveries,” Martinez continued. “That is half of our budget.”

    While hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border every year, crossings that result in death are all too common. CNSNews.com reported several deaths last year, including an 11-year-old boy from Guatemala found dead in Texas and a 32-year old pregnant woman who died along with her unborn child after being abandoned by smugglers in California.

    During the hearing, Martinez went on to explain how Mexican gangs and drug cartels control the southern U.S. border and take advantage of unsecured areas to smuggle drugs and people across privately owned ranches in Brooks County, forcing local law enforcement to expend money and resources simply to recover those who don’t make the journey.

    Despite law enforcement efforts, the problem appears to only be getting worse, Martinez warned.

    “The Mexican cartels and transnational gangs continue to increase the level of organized criminal activity in the Rio Grande Valley,” Martinez said, explaining the cartels are “very active into the home invasions, felony evasions, extortion, kidnapping, sexual assaults of undocumented crossers and the recruitment of Texas children to transport drugs, people and stolen vehicles across the border.”

    Presidents like Obama who encourage illegal immigration are personally responsible for all those deaths. Without statements of support for illegal aliens, without actions to defy our immigration laws, without amnesty programs to issue illegal aliens social security numbers, work permits, tax credit welfare, no risk of deportation, and on and on and on, most of those people wouldn't have died here, because they wouldn't have come here in the first place.

    Another example of the feds raping local jurisdictions. The feds are responsible for border security, therefore since they did not do their job, these people deaths are the responsibility of the federal taxpayer. It most certainly is THEIR responsibility not the local taxpayer responsibility! The feds tax us to provide border security, but after taxing us make us pay for cleaning up after their screw-ups. That is not the way it works in most US courts. Americans and their justice does not pass the smell test here!!
