Dead After 100MPH Border Patrol Chase of SUV Packed with 14 People

Fear of separation shadows immigrant families crossing US border

Fear of separation shadows immigrant families crossing US border

The U.S. Border Patrol has objected to the media's use of the word "cages" when describing the conditions of the detention center in South Texas used to separate migrant children from their parents as they are "not being treated like animals".

The other 12 passengers were undocumented immigrants, Boyd said.

"We really don't want anybody to get a free pass", Deputy Chief Raul Ortiz said at the time.

Sunday's crash, Boyd said, is a "perfect example of why our borders need to be secure". "It endangers American lives as well as those people from Mexico or other countries coming here ... for whatever reason they're coming".

The facility has spanned multiple presidential administrations but a new "zero tolerance" policy - which Trump's own top staff and Cabinet officials have explicitly said is causing children to be taken from their parents as part of an effort to deter border crossings - has turned the spotlight on it. The driver was among those hospitalized and he and the passenger were in custody. "The driver was not ejected".

A total of nine people were transported to the hospital, including five who went to San Antonio Military Medical Center and the rest going to local hospitals.

Border Patrol agents were called to the scene to assist with the apprehension of the illegal immigrants and one U.S. Citizen. According to Padilla, that fee, commonly known as "Piso" is only for access to the Rio Grande and is separate from any arrangement the individual has with human smugglers. "The driver of this vehicle, we have handled before. We created this situation by not doing anything", Padilla said.

In a later interview, Boyd said the vehicle reached 100 miles per hour before the driver lost control and crashed.

According to a statement released by Remes' family, they hope the video will "contribute to greater justice for O'odham families and all victims of Border Patrol violence, both inside and outside the Tohono O'odham Nation".

He and Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) then went to the McAllen-Hidalgo-Reynosa International Bridge, where agents have reportedly refused entry to families showing up with asylum requests citing a lack of detention space, leaving migrants camping out on the border bridge with scant food and water.

"Every day, my deputies are getting into pursuits", he said. A toddler inside the 60-bed facility caught her eye - she was crying uncontrollably and pounding her little fists on mat. "Most of it is smuggling traffic".

Boyd said there needs to be a wall built because this is a "real problem" in the area.

"If it can be built, then I think it should be built, but along with that, I think there needs to be cameras", Boyd said. First, we don't get to hear much from the people carrying out the policies, and Padilla's perspective adds considerable nuance to what has been cast, ridiculously so, as the equivalent of concentration camps.
