Border Patrol Assists Multiple Distressed Migrants

Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents assisted five distressed migrants during three Easter-weekend incidents in southern Arizona.

On Friday, agents from the Ajo Border Patrol station received notification of a 9-1-1 call involving two distressed individuals. Agents were in route to the area when the caller, an El Salvadorian national, again called 9-1-1 to say that his travel partner needed medical attention. Two agents, one of which is an emergency medical technician, arrived on scene and determined the sick individual, a Mexican national, was severely dehydrated. The EMT agent provided immediate aid until an Ajo ambulance arrived and transported the man to an area hospital for further evaluation.

Also on Friday, agents from the Three Points Substation responded to a 9-1-1 call originating from Topawa, on the Tohono O’odham Nation, and encountered two Guatemala nationals who were in good health and declined medical care. Both subjects told agents they were just tired.

Ajo agents working Sunday, assisted by an Air and Marine Operations helicopter crew from Yuma Sector, responded to a 9-1-1 call from a male Mexican national in distress. Agents used GPS coordinates from the 9-1-1 system, as well as landmarks relayed by the caller, and found the man standing on a bombing target on the Barry M. Goldwater Air Force Range. He did not require medical attention.

All of the migrants had entered the United States illegally and therefore were arrested and will be processed per Tucson Sector guidelines.

  1. So if they entered the country illegally they are illegal aliens, not migrants.

    The word migrant comes from migration, meaning constant wondering. So by definition, they can’t not be migrants, since once they arrive they never leave. In essence they are primarily like more then Mexicans living abroad.
    But migrant sounds friendly and peaceful Vs. criminal alien which sounds cold and harsh, and since the leftist lamestream media is pushing the only publicly offered narrative with the hopes that even if it’s a lie, if you hear something long enough it becomes the truth.
    The Tucson city clowncil is pretending to be a welcoming city. This play on words is designed to hide the facts that the city is basically operating as a publicly funded criminal enterprise by failing to follow the vary laws the police are empowered to enforce.
    Drug dealers are not unlicensed pharmacist and any defense using such terminology would be luaghed at and rejected by the powers that be, but under libtard leadership rebranding lies and criminal behavior is totally acceptable if it fits the leftist agenda.
    Migrants: NO.
    Criminal Aliens: YES

    And please vote NO on any upcoming bonds or tax increases. We seem to have endless funding to thumb our nose at the feds over our pick and choose adherence to laws. Having gun shows at the TCC could generate money, selling confiscated guns could generate money, and yet the city doesn’t need the money. But a tax increase is needed because the city needs more money. So which lie is it?
    Pima county has so much disposable money that they give it away in cooperate welfare gifts. The only gift I get from the county is sewer rate and property tax hikes. Money gifted that could have used to meet legitimate needs. And since actions soak louder then words, again they don’t really need more money.


  3. They are dang lucky our country is good hearted, if they had been in trouble in Mexico they would not have had it so good. Abusive behavior and jail time in their bad prisons would have been their fate.
