Border Patrol Agents Rescue 6-Year-Old Abandoned By Smuggler

Ajo Station Border Patrol agents rescued a 6-year-old Costa Rican boy after he was abandoned on the border road Tuesday evening.

Agents discovered the child west of Lukeville, Arizona and just north of the border, in temperatures over 100 degrees. The child told agents he was dropped off by his uncle and that Border Patrol would pick him up. He added that he was on his way to see his mother in the U.S.

The child, who was found in good condition, was transported to Tucson for further processing.

This incident highlights the dangers faced by migrants at the hands of smugglers. Children in particular are extremely vulnerable, not only to exploitation, but also to the elements in the environment.


  1. How unfortunate that after such a pleasurable trip North to the border, that nasty federal agents will irreversibly and perhaps even permanently traumatize the boy with food and water, medical care and air conditioning.
    Surely some sort of “humanitarian” award should be bestowed on the uncle for just dumpling the kid out in the heat in hopes he’d be picked up. What a guy!
    Sadly it’s simply another consequence of the lingering failed policies of the most transparent presidency in history when the chocolate Jesus intentionally, willfully and deliberately failed to uphold the law of the land.

    The Oracle

  2. Thank God President Trump increased the number of Border Patrol agents on patrol in the desert. Obviously. with a greater number of Border Patrol agents. the chances that this child was found before he was harmed was significantly increased.
