Eagle Pass, TX - New photos capture the dramatic rescue of a 7-year-old boy from Honduras who nearly drowned in the river separating the U.S. and Mexico until Border Patrol agents rescued him.

The San Antonio Express-News reported Wednesday on the rescue of four adults and five children who tried to cross the Rio Grande in inflatable children’s pools near Eagle Pass, Texas. The pools capsized. Agents pulled the group out of the water and eventually took them into custody.

The river is especially strong between Eagle Pass, Texas, and Piedras Negras, Mexico. An adult and three children were recently swept away trying to cross the river nearby; all four are presumed dead.

The Border Patrol made 99,000 apprehensions on the southern border just in April. Most were adults and children from Central America expected to seek asylum .

#1 These are families with small children who are literally willing to risk their lives for the chance to live freely. Every person with a soul, despite their political leanings, should feel compassion for their desperation. Your comment is callous.

No. You can still Express sympathy for the situation and support Trunp
The boy was drowning, all politics aside. He was born into a situation that he didnt create and almost died looking for a better life. You can catch him and send him back but this is a human tragedy. Maybe you should reread about why Ammon and Moav couldn't join Klal Yisrael for a while
