Migrants dying by the thousands on dangerous trek to US, Texas morgues overwhelmed: ‘It’s a crisis’

One of the rarely considered humanitarian side effects of President Joe Biden’s failed policies at the Southern border is the countless deaths of migrants who attempt the dangerous trek to reach the United States but ultimately fail.

Although millions have illegally crossed the border successfully, over 300 bodies have been processed at just one small morgue in Laredo, Texas which is so overwhelmed with migrant deaths that the facility’s cooler is at capacity.

“It is full. I currently have not a single space in that cooler,” Dr. Corinne Stern, the Webb County Medical Examiner told Fox News.

As the bodies continue to be wheeled in almost daily, Stern slammed the situation as an outright crisis.

“It is a crisis. I have labeled it. There you go, we are in the middle of a crisis,” the 20-year veteran medical examiner said. “Every single one of those [deaths] was preventable.”

Citing CBP sources, Fox News reported “that more than 3,000 migrants have died while trying to cross into the U.S. since the beginning of last fiscal year.”

Texas Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-Texas) believes the flood of illegal immigrants will continue indefinitely until Congress takes definitive action to stop it.

“Today it’s Del Rio and Eagle Pass and El Paso. Tomorrow, it’s your city, whether that’s Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Florida,” Gonzales said in an interview with Fox News. “This is spreading. There’s no end in sight.”

One item he thinks Congress could fund to better track are 33 foot high autonomous surveillance towers that rely on artificial intelligence to track and detect migrants in the border territories.

“Every border sector is asking for more of these,” the Navy veteran said. “What you don’t hear too much about – the ‘gotaways’ – these are people that we know entered the country illegally, but we don’t know where they went. These towers would help with that. We would be able to identify these ‘gotaways.’”

The technology is part of the “Commitment to America” proposal put forth in the House of Representatives earlier this week that includes other measures to secure the border such as ending loopholes for catch-and-release migrants.

The Texas representative noted how the increased use of technology could have prevented the deaths of migrants that died in the back of an 18-wheeler driven by a Houston man who was high on meth.

“About 2 months ago, there were 53 migrants that found cooked in the back of a trailer, that’s in my district,” Gonzales said. “That could have been prevented if there was technology at the border to identify these trucks.”

Gonzales pointed out that the border problem is resolvable with a Republican-controlled House.

“The other thing is this – people forget – the House has the power of the purse,” Gonzales said passionately. “And it is time for the House to lead again.”
