    TX - Man dies after fleeing Border Patrol

    by Ashley Claster, Javier GutierrezSunday, March 11th 2018

    EL PASO, Texas — One man is dead after he and his brother ran from the Border Patrol near Sunland Park.


    According to Juan Ortega with Sunland Park Police Department, the two brothers who were undocumented immigrants who fled Border Patrol at the Santa Teresa Port of Entry.

    The brothers made it to the area of McNutt Road and Camino Real when one of them collapsed, according to Ortega.

    The other brother flagged down Border Patrol agents to help his brother.

    Ortega said the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

    According to Customs and Border Protection, on early Sunday morning agents were following two men suspected of entering the country illegally. They found the first man at an entrance to a landfill in Sunland Park.

    The man told Border Patrol agents that his brother was in a culvert nearby and needed medical help. CBP said agents found the brother and he was not breathing. A Border Patrol EMT tried to revive him and so did Sunland Park EMTs, but the attempts failed.

    Residents in nearby homes said they weren't surprised to hear the news.

    “A lot of people cross illegally," said Sunland Park resident Ernesto Chuca. "I live on the last street, and they stop there to hide. Sometimes they die along the way."

    "There’s always been border crossings here. It’s nothing new here," said Sunland Park resident Noah Roman. "But for somebody to die just like that? That’s something to be concerned about. What happened? Why did he all of a sudden die?"

    "I'm not surprised that a lot of people jump the border, because there's been many Border Patrol in this area. But I'm surprised he died,” said Sunland Park neighbor Rodrigo Arrelo. "I don't think he cared. It was his brother. He probably didn't care if he got in trouble or not."

    "I've lived here all of my life. I can say it's pretty safe,” Roman said. "You might see the fence, but there's still parts of it that's missing. So I'm pretty sure they're crossing through there, or there's always tunnels."

    The investigation is ongoing.
