The heartbreaking moment a crying migrant child approached a U.S. Border Patrol officer near the Mexico-United States border in Texas and asked for help has been captured on video.
The boy can be seen walking towards the Border Patrol agent and asking for assistance because he had ben dumped near the Rio Grande.
‘It’s that I was coming with a group and they abandoned me and I do not know where they are at,’ the child told the officer.
The boy is one of hundreds of unaccompanied children crossing the border each day.
New government statistics released last week revealed that 171,000 migrants were caught by US authorities at the border in March – the highest monthly total in two decades and the latest sign of the mounting humanitarian challenge confronting President Joe Biden…
…The agent asked the boy if he had been instructed ‘to come ask for help,’ but the the child replied, ‘no, I am coming because if I did not, where am I going to go? Somebody could abduct me, kidnap me. I am scared.’
