A two-year-old boy was abandoned by his father and their cartel coyote on a highway in southern Mexico. The boy was found next to a dead man, who had suffocated in the freight truck in which they were crammed with a large number of other persons being smuggled. The photo below from a different report on the same event shows the corpse next to the boy.
This is the most common way to be smuggled across Mexico in the back of a freight truck packed together with others, often in danger of dying from dehydration and suffocation. The Mexican immigration authorities and federal police do detain and deport would be illegal immigrants, if they do not have the proper documents. This is why they have to pay many thousands of dollars in fees and take loans from the cartel in order to be smuggled by the cartel across Mexico to the U.S. border.
The parents should both be charged with child endangerment. This post is not made to generate sympathy for the mostly unqualified “refugees” trying to enter the United States, but to show how inhumane Biden’s policy is, of allowing them to exploit a child as free pass. It promotes trafficking of children even by their own parents as a means to quickly and easily enter the U.S. when they are not eligible for asylum in the first place and they know it.
It is actually much more humane and rational in the long run to to end the practice of exploiting children in this way, by making asylum seekers wait in Mexico and thereby discourage the great majority of those “refugees” from ever undertaking the dangerous journey with or without a child, because bringing a child does not serve as a free pass into the country any longer. Save the children, make them wait in Mexico!

The mother of the immigrant child who was abandoned on a Mexican highway speaks
Honduran Lorena García Vásquez said that the boy, whose name is Wilder, was traveling with his father, about whom nothing has been known since the minor was found on a highway in the Mexican state of Veracruz.
The two-year-old boy who was abandoned near a Mexican highway with a naked torso and among a pile of garbage and clothes is Honduran and his name is Wilder, according to his mother, Lorena Garcia Vasquez.
The woman lives in a community in the municipality of Cabanas, just over 100 miles (170 kilometers) west of Tegucigalpa. In an interview with Univision Noticias, she explained that she ‘had not heard anything’ about her son since the last time her father contacted her, on June 25.
The parents decided that the child should go with the father because, he said, they thought that entering the United States would be easier to go with a minor. “They were going through like this with minors…”, she says in a low voice to the camera.
The boy was left on a highway in the state of Veracruz with eight other immigrants, who said they were traveling with about a hundred people in a transport truck under such conditions that people began to beat the walls of the vehicle to implore the driver to stop.
The driver stopped the truck, left the child half naked and eight people managed to escape, of which one died (a young man of about 25 years old) due to suffocation and dehydration, according to the National Migration Institute (Inami) of Mexico. None of the immigrants who came down at the same time as Wilder claimed to be related to him.
The Mexican authorities contacted the Guatemalan and Honduran consulates and that is how the child’s mother identified her son. Garcia Vasquez affirmed that she still has no information about his father. Inami and the Honduran diplomatic authorities reported that he will make the necessary arrangements to reunite the child with his mother in Honduras.
