They left with strangers, professional smugglers who would escort them across the border illegally in exchange for $5,000 to $6,000 each. Half the money would be paid at the start of the trip, half at the end, if it went safely. These are dangerous quests, with the risk of assault by smugglers, dehydration in the desert along the US border, or drowning in the fast-moving Rio Grande. One made it. One didn't.

Amazingingly between the 2 children they had access to a minimum of $10,000.00. I hope the breeders who abandon their children sleep well at night.

I've heard of this before.. very sad. Except, these were Peruvian immigrants who crossed lots of borders. Children stayed with people they didn't know for 2 weeks.

Really, well I've read these stories hundreds of times and they happen every day especially in Mexico. Once here they methodically proceed to drop their "anchors". But of course if they are caught and deported, the US is to blame for "separating their families".

When Mexicans migrate to the United States, many leave their children in the care of extended families. That's causing problems back in their home communities, with children doing poorly in school, dropping out or turning to crime.

Obviously this isn't about working those jobs Americans don't want to do, ibut children can bring in a lot of food stamps and government handouts.

Parents who would turn their children over to these human traffickers have no love for their children. They know their daughters are very likely going to be raped, and their sons too. They don't care.

Well, let's play the friggin' violin!! The MSM sure do go out of their way to collect all the info they need for these sob stories.
My Mother died when I was 15, I didn't run to the press to make sure the whole world would read about.
