RGV Sector Border Patrol Agents Rescue Toddler Abandoned by Smugglers in Texas Field

BROWNSVILLE – U.S. Border Patrol agents rescued a 3-year-old male child abandoned by smugglers in Texas.

Early Tuesday morning, Fort Brown Station Border Patrol agents working near Brownsville, Texas, observed multiple suspected illegal aliens walking north towards a cornfield near the intersection of Southmost Boulevard and Southpoint Road after they entered the United States illegally. As agents attempted to intercept the group, the suspected illegal aliens scattered in the overgrown field. Agents requested the assistance of a Border Patrol K-9 team in an attempt to search the field and, in the process, located a child who was alone and crying.

Agents attempted to locate the child’s parents in the surrounding area of the field to no avail. The young child did not speak well enough to communicate, but had his name and a phone number written on his shoes.
