EDINBURG, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents saved the lives of four illegal aliens, including a pregnant woman earlier this week.

The pregnant woman, who is a national of Honduras, was rescued Tuesday by agents with the Border Patrol Search, Trauma and Rescue (BORSTAR) team.

According to a press release, the agents found the woman in a ranch near San Manuel, Texas, after she became separated from the group with which she was traveling and fell into distress. The agents offered her medical attention, which she declined.

BORSTAR agents rescued another illegal alien, who is from Peru, later that afternoon on the same ranch. The man also declined medical attention and was transported to the Falfurrias Station for processing.

Later that evening, BORSTAR agents saved the life of an illegal alien from Mexico, who was suffering from severe dehydration. The man was taken to Edinburg Regional Medical Center for treatment.

The fourth rescue was made near San Isidro, Texas, after Starr County sheriff’s deputies notified agents of a distress call. The man, who is from El Salvador, was lost in the brush and suffering from the extreme heat and lack of water. He was offered, but declined, medical attention.

So far for fiscal year 2012, agents have saved the lives of more than 200 people and found the remains of close to 70.

The number of rescues is up nearly 75 percent for the same time period last year and the number of deaths is up by more than 100 percent, the release stated.

  1. areopagitica says:

    Title is misleading and stupid. They did not save four “immigrants.” They “interdicted four wetbacks”, or they “took four would be illegals into custody” or “they foiled a border incursion of four aliens.” Or simply “caught
    four trespassers attempting illegal entry.” After hosing
    them off and fingerprints and mugshots there should be a one way passage to the guatemalan border of Mexico.

  2. They were welcomed with open arms by Obama. Given food, housing,medical, retirement, clothing, 401k, new phone, checking acct. , Rosetta DON’T learn ENGLISH, AND A VOTER I.D. CARD ! RIGHT HOLDER ? CHANGE IS COMING !!!!

  3. Kathy Bolsen says:

    For every one they save, many more become coyote and buzzard chow

  4. Another new American citizen will be born here based solely on his or her mother breaking our laws. And this does not promote more people coming here illegally? Time to look at the 14th amendment closely again! Intentions of the writer have been grossly misrepresented.

  5. AND the USA allows this to happen !!!!

  6. should put efferts into building a wall and electrifying it .

  7. When they find them in the desert, they give them water first. How inhuman is that?

  8. Just curious why your heading says, “4 immigrants” when they are actually illegal aliens!

  9. how can anybody ask WHY these people were rescued … have you no Heart??? Do you have a replacement in the form of a COLD STONE?????
