The southern border has descended into deadly chaos for everyone involved—including the illegal immigrants crossing the border in the hopes of amnesty in the days to come.
The issue has become so inflamed that the number of illegal aliens dying as they cross the border has nearly tripled from pre-Biden levels.
This will be the deadliest year ever for people coming to the United States without legal authorization.

According to the official statistics, the number of dead bodies reached 782 last week, Fox News host Laura Ingraham said on Thursday
The actual body count is already higher and we still don’t know the total number.
“It’s going to be the deadliest year by far,” Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, told JustTheNews.com recently. “When you look at the last year prior to President Biden taking office, the most deaths we ever had was a little over 300. Now we’re right at 800. It’s the most dangerous situation we’ve ever seen by far, and I’m going to go back to the point that Democrats do not care.”
Illegal aliens pay human traffickers, coyotes, and drug cartels to get them across the southern border with Mexico. The smugglers — who have been paid in advance — often abandon the slow, sick, elderly, or infant members of their caravans… or sacrifice them when Border Patrol agents come near.
The sickly members who have been betrayed by their smugglers wander in the desert and often die of dehydration. Border Patrol agents may stumble over their bodies while chasing other teams of illegal immigrants.
The situation has gotten so bad that the dead bodies have clogged up border town cemeteries and mortuaries.
Every time an illegal alien died in the southern sector near Eagle Pass, Texas, the local police dig a hole in a plot of their public cemetery, splice two halves of PVC pipe into a cross, and scratch the name into a tiny marker… if they know it.

“At the rate we’re going, the county’s going to have to open up a new plot here at the cemetery,” Maverick County Sheriff Tom Schmerber of Eagle Pass told the Daily Caller. “They’re ordering autopsies, and the medical examiners that we use … are starting to turn us away because of the high volume of deceased that we’re having, not just here in Eagle Pass but in every county up and down the border.”
It’s running the already cash-strapped counties further into the red. “The bill is left up to the county to inter the person, which is right here in our local cemetery,” Sheriff Schmerber said. “A lot of the plots are labeled John Doe or Jane Doe—unfortunately, baby John or baby Jane Doe…We don’t even know what county of origin they’re from.”
His deputy, Frank Bowles, said he can’t see a way out of this crisis over the pile of dead bodies. “Some days we’re receiving one to two persons, deceased, per day. Sometimes we’re receiving eight to nine,” he said in a clip played on Fox News. “It’s gotten to the point where our local mortuaries are no longer taking the deceased.”
The local doctors explained it’s not so much that they won’t take more bodies: They can’t. “We’re in the middle of a crisis,” said Dr. Corinne Stern, Webb County, Texas, medical examiner. “It is full. I currently have not a single space in that cooler.”
There’s no room to store the bodies, and no room to bury them.
“At this rate that we’re going, we’re going to run out of space real quick” in the public cemetery, Sheriff Schmerber stated.

“I was raised down in the Rio Grande Valley for the past 37 years, and this is the worst I’ve ever seen the crisis, a humanitarian crisis on our southern border,” said Republican congressional candidate Cassy Garcia. “The administration is quiet. The Left is quiet. No one’s talking about it.”
The Biden administration — which tried to portray itself as the caring alternative to Trump’s tough enforcement policy — doesn’t want people to know it’s killed three times as many illegals as Trump ever did.
But then, the illegals knew this was a treacherous journey and that they couldn’t trust the international gangs to be decent to them if their neck was on the line. The ones who get through often pose another kind of deadly threat.
Biden has broken national records for the number of illegal border crossings both years of his administration and, rest assured, that’s claiming American lives through fentanyl trafficking, car accidents, and gang activity.
Open borders aren’t compassionate; they’re deadly for everybody, foreign and domestic.
