Cameras Catch Human Smuggler Dropping Small Children From Border Wall

Yuma Sector camera operators witnessed small children being dropped from an 18-foot wall, near the San Luis Port of Entry early Monday morning.

According to Border Patrol, a Yuma Sector camera operator observed a group of six illegal aliens, including two small children, coming over the wall with assistance of a human smuggler.

The camera operator could see one smuggler in Mexico helping adult members of the family group over the top of the wall. The subject then dropped two young children from the top of the wall to waiting family members below. The subject retreated to Mexico and was not apprehended.

The group of six from Guatemala was a family unit, including three children: a 2-year-old, a 7-year- old, and a 10-year-old. All surrendered to U.S. Border Patrol agents who arrived on scene. One child suffered a facial injury, and was treated by agents. All were taken into custody.

The section of the wall where this occurred is part of the 27 miles in the Yuma Sector that has been selected and funded for replacement.
