A powerful photo shows a Border Patrol agent carrying a hurt illegal immigrant to safety during an operation along the US-Mexico border.
The undated photo was posted on Twitter Thursday by Brian Hastings, the chief Border Patrol agent for Texas’ Rio Grande Valley sector — the epicenter of the ongoing crisis along the southwestern frontier.
“HAPPENING NOW- LEFT BEHIND,” Hastings wrote. “[Border Patrol] Special Operations Detachment carry a migrant out of the brush and to safety. The migrant suffered an injury while being smuggled into the US.” He added the hashtags, “#Rescues,” “#SavingLives,” and “#Heroes.”
The picture of the unidentified agent walking through rough terrain with the immigrant slung across their shoulders is a searing image of the current surge of attempted illegal border crossings and the effects of people smuggling.
