Five immigrants dead after fleeing United States border patrol

In the aftermath of a crash that killed five immigrants and injured several others, Dimmit County Sheriff Marion Boyd made a plea for stronger security measures along the Texas-Mexico border. Six patients were taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center in San Antonio, Lt. Edwin Roberts said.

While traveling at top speed, the driver lost control of the SUV, which rolled, causing the deaths and injuries, the Texas Department of Public Safety was quoted as saying.

Prosecutors said Tuesday that almost two dozen people believed to be in the country illegally were involved in the smuggling scheme. She also said smugglers and traffickers were using children to illegally enter the country and insisted that the only thing this administration is doing differently is enforcing the letter of the law.

"We've seen this many, many times and not only in this county but other counties along the border", he said.

The Border Patrol said in a statement Sunday night that the agent noticed three vehicles traveling in tandem around 11 a.m. Sunday. While officials believe numerous people were in the country illegally (the driver, though, is apparently a US citizen) there's nothing in any of the reporting that suggests officials suspected any of these people were risky or engaged in violent activities. Officials have not released the names of the driver or any of the 13 passengers. "This is I think a ideal example of why our borders need to be secured".

"What's missing is a conductor", says the man in Spanish, whom ProPublica identifies as a border agent.

Republican senator Ted Cruz, of Texas, said he plans to table emergency legislation meant to keep immigrant families together.

Border Patrol agents attempted to stop the SUV, along with two others, in connection with a suspected "smuggling event".

Several people were arrested after another agent stopped the second vehicle, but the third vehicle didn't stop when an agent tried to pull it over, Customs and Border Protection said. They transported the driver and the 18 migrants to the Brian A. Terry Border Patrol Station just north of Naco, Arizona, where they will be processed. "It is a major problem".

"I think we need more boots on the ground, we need more patrol", Boyd said. "I was talking to one mother, and she said, "Don't take my child away", and the child started screaming and vomiting and crying hysterically, and she asked the officers, "Can I at least have five minutes to console her?"
