5 dead as SUV chased by Border Patrol crashes in South Texas

5 dead as SUV chased by Border Patrol crashes in South Texas”

A fifth person died at a hospital in San Antonio. Six patients were taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center in San Antonio, Lt. Edwin Roberts said.

Boyd said the sheriff's office had "handled" the driver during an encounter last week when he appeared to be scouting for a smuggling operation.

The Maryland senator said officials wouldn't let the lawmakers talk to the children - he saw about 100 in the facility - and asked that he stop filming outside. The Trump administration has said tougher immigration policies - even separating children from their parents - are needed to deter immigrants from coming to the country illegally. "This is a ideal example of why our borders need to be secure".

ProPublica published the audio, which depicts workers attempting to gather information from children as they cry out for family members.

Boyd said the victims were taken to hospitals. "The driver was not ejected. The vehicle rolled over a short distance later on highway 85 near Big Wells, resulting in multiple injuries and fatalities", the statement said. He said one passenger was taken into custody.

"However, we can not allow those involved in sex trafficking or those with criminal or terrorist ties to walk right in with people who simply want a better life", he said, adding that he believed the legislation to be voted on this week would "not only prioritize border security, but end family separation and curb illegal immigration".

"Accusations of surreptitious efforts to separate are completely false", a Homeland Security official said. "The driver of this vehicle, we have handled before. We are enforcing the laws passed by Congress", she said.

The deaths come amid heightened tension over immigration policy at the US-Mexico border, after the Trump administration began forced separations of migrant children from their parents.

Boyd credited "good police work" for the reason why deputies started pursuing the vehicle.

Agents found numerous illegal immigrants in each of the two stopped vehicles and made arrests for immigration violations. An agent tried to pull over the third vehicle, but the driver refused to stop, according to the statement.

Border Patrol agents allowed reporters into the huge warehouse, located in South Texas, on Sunday.

Video of the scene by the local television station KSAT-12 showed the large, black vehicle was severely damaged, blocking both lanes of the rural stretch of highway. "It is a major problem". She says, "I promise I'll behave, but please get me out of here". "Most of it is smuggling traffic".
