49 Deaths Confirmed By Border Official

49 Deaths Confirmed By Border Official

(AbsoluteNews.com) – The border crisis is still raging nearly five months into President Joe Biden’s term. Although he’s placed Vice President Kamala Harris in charge of the crisis, not much has changed. Now, a Border Patrol official reported multiple people are dead along the border.

On Tuesday, June 8, the US Del Rio Border Sector Chief appeared on Fox Business’ “Cavuto: Coast to Coast,” to talk about the crisis. He said agents have saved the lives of around 1,300 people this year who would’ve drowned had the officers not been there to rescue them. But they still lost about 49 others, some to drowning and some to brush exposure. He explained that crossing the Rio Grande River is dangerous even though it’s shallow in places. People often slip on “gravel bars and silt bottoms” and drown.

The news about the border deaths comes as law enforcement worries about the brutal summer ahead. Don White, a sheriff’s deputy in rural Brooks County, Texas, told the Washington Post that his county has found 34 human remains and bodies in 2021.

If Biden and Harris don’t get the border under control soon, many more people could lose their lives.
