Another heartbreaking episode involving an abandoned child along the U.S.-Mexico border has emerged, managing to somewhat escape a subtle media blackout on what largely remains a humanitarian crisis.
With record numbers of migrants crossing into the United States in April, and tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors in federal custody at one point or another, the media has lost all interest in a matter that reflects poorly on the Biden administration.
Video footage captured a frantic 5-year-old boy reportedly abandoned on the border Thursday night near El Paso, Texas, screaming, “Don’t go!”
He was purportedly yelling at those who left him behind, “Here, here! No, no! Don’t go, no!” the young boy is heard screaming in Spanish.
The woman who abandoned the child briefly returned to him following his outburst, but she eventually leaves alone a second time, clutching his teddy bear, AFP reported.
As the migrants likely count on with leaving the child behind, a move that allows them to move quicker and more freely, Border Patrol soon shows up and is seen escorting the boy away after talking to him.
Last month, at the height of the unchecked record flow of Biden-inspired humanity, a farmer found five abandoned migrant girls, all under the age of 7, on his land near the Rio Grande River.
The girls, practically babies, were found hungry and crying, with the youngest naked and crawling because she was too young to walk.
They were provided with shelter and food before authorities arrived, with the farmer saying he did not believe they would have survived if he had not spotted them, as the temperature was above 100 degrees.
There was no video, although a heartbreaking photo captured the desperate girls. Yet, there was nary a peep from the national media, outside of Fox News.
Just as the crisis on the overrun southern border is ignored or otherwise downplayed by the media, so too are migrants who die on the trek to America. Migrants largely enticed by President Biden’s pro-illegal immigration policies — a large caravan began the trip to America before Biden was ever sworn in, hoping to arrive as he was sworn in.
For January through March 25, of this year, 76 deaths were reported for the U.S.-Mexico border and interior of Mexico, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection shows that 7,216 people have died crossing the U.S–Mexico border between 1998 and 2017 — this being a stat conveniently ignored by Democrats when they talk about the humanity of open borders.
President Biden appointed Vice President Kamala Harris as the point person on the border crisis back in March — she has yet to hold a news conference and has still not bothered to visit the border as drug smugglers and human traffickers wreak havoc.
On Tuesday, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott issued a disaster declaration along the state’s southern border in response to the crisis on the border.
“President Biden’s open-border policies have paved the way for dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers, and deadly drugs like fentanyl to pour into our communities,” Abbott said in a statement. “Meanwhile, landowners along the border are seeing their property damaged and vandalized on a daily basis while the Biden administration does nothing to protect them. Texas continues to step up to confront the border crisis in the federal government’s absence, but more must be done.”
“By declaring a state of disaster in these counties, Texas will have more resources and strategies at our disposal to protect landowners and enforce all federal and state laws to combat criminal activities stemming from the border crisis,” the release added. “Working together with local law enforcement, the state will continue to take robust and meaningful action to keep our communities safe.”
