TUCSON, AZ (AP) - Authorities say the U.S. Border Patrol has located a mother and 8-year-old daughter from India who had been with a 7-year-old daughter whose body was found in the Arizona desert near the U.S.-Mexico border.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Friday in a statement that the missing mother and older daughter were taken to a hospital for treatment of dehydration after they crossed back into the United States late Thursday night and surrendered to agents.

The statement said the mother and daughters reportedly had been traveling with two women and that smugglers dropped all five near the border.

 

According to the statement, the 7-year-old’s body was found Wednesday after agents encountered the other two women who told agents they had become separated from the others hours earlier.

No identities were released.

The mother should be thrown in jail for this abusive and fatal death of her own child. Then deported

Build the wall and deport all illegals. If they want to come here, do it the legal way.

THE STAMPEDE AT OUR SOUTHERN BORDER: Lets see, we have Democrat / Socialist / Activists in the Northern Triangle of South America & Mexico; even as you read this instructing the populations the "benefits" & laws of coming to the USA and to make sure you bring your children and use the the magic words....."credible fear." Mexico recently arrested two socialist activists who were instrumental in the organizing of prior caravans, Then you have a Democrat House saying the crisis is "manufactured" as literally thousands attack our border daily? National Sovereignty is a myth to Democrats. The crisis is manufactured...by the Democrats themselves. Make no mistake about this, Democrats want this to happen and never stop.. They will with hold border security support allowing as many illegal aliens to enter the country as possible overwhelming our BP & ICE before assisting in border security (if ever). THE LIE OF TPS / DACA: To Democrats/Progressives/Socialists (whats the difference?) programs like Temporary Protective Status (TPS) or Deferred Action for Childhood arrivals (DACA) or the "visa lottery" program (Chuck Schumer's idea) are permanent programs. There is nothing "temporary or deferred" about these programs to Democrats. These programs are designed to admit refugees (usually from the third world) then Democrats fight to keep them here permanently using the charge of racism, religion, guilt, against anyone opposed. Simple formula works great. The current migration at our border is costing taxpayers a Kings ransom. Fleeing persecution? or fleeing for freebies? they sure don't stay in Mexico when they reach "safety" or ask or offered political asylum in Mexico. Why? because Mexico will give them NOTHING. So they make the long journey to our border, our generous Democrats, and our tax dollars. Notice how many have made the long, difficult, dangerous journey to our country 8-9 months pregnant? Just a few examples of the more outrageous costs associated with illegal immigration, we will pass this burden on to our children & grand children as has been passed on to us. * City emergency services Taxpayer pay for every police, fire, paramedic service call for illegal aliens in their city. Taxpayers also pay for all hospital, emergency room treatments, ambulances, medications....everything. Hospital wait times for citizens are negatively impacted. *Cost of educating illegal aliens is staggering. From K-12 it costs taxpayers on average $122,000 for EACH illegal alien student. This does not include the millions spent on bilingual ED, instructors, special need children & day care. It is estimated nearly 100,000 illegal aliens graduate each year......you do the math. School class size are also negatively impacted by illegal aliens and our students suffer as a result. *Taxpayers in some states are funding "in state college tuition" discounts for illegal aliens. (AZ voted to terminate this taxpayer expense.) Cost to taxpayers over a billion dollars annually. *About one in five inmates in federal prison are foreign-born, & more than 90% of those are in the U.S illegally. This does not include local jails and state prisons. At roughly $24,000 per year expense per inmate. *$3Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate, process Illegal aliens in the criminal justice system. *$2.2 Billion dollars a year is spent on is spent on food assistance programs such as SNAP, WIC, & taxpayer funded school lunches. *Mexico received 33 billion last year in remittance from our country. $120 billion total was sent out of the United States in total remittance last year. *Every child birth by illegal aliens in the U.S is paid for with tax dollars.In the US, the average cost to have a baby without complications during delivery, is $10,808, which can increase to $30,000 when factoring in care provided before and after pregnancy (July 9, 2018 google.) * Section 8 housing. Illegal aliens take full advantage of this program. Citizens & their families in poverty in many cases wait years behind non citizens for emergency housing.
