    A 15-year-old illegal border crosser dumped by smugglers northwest of Tucson was found early Monday along with his mother's body, officials said.

    The boy called 911 saying that his mother had fainted and might be dead. The Pima County Sheriff's Office transferred the call to the Border Patrol at about 3:30 a.m., said agency spokeswoman Colleen Agle.

    When agents from the Border Patrol's search and rescue team found the two near Avra Valley and Pump Station roads the mother was dead, Agle said. The location is about 25 miles northwest of downtown Tucson.

    The teen told agents smugglers had kicked them out of a vehicle because the mother, 44, was sick, Agle said. They are believed to be from Mexico.

    She was one of two illegal border crossers found dead in the last two days.

    On Monday, agents found the body of a 48-year-old man from Mexico in the Baboquivari Mountains southeast of Sells on the Tohono O'odham Nation, Agle said.

    From Oct. 1 to March 31, the latest figures available, agents in the Border Patrol's Tucson Sector recovered the bodies of 87 illegal immigrants, up from 66 through the same time period in fiscal year 2009.

    They should put the bodies on pikes with signs, advising illegals to turn back.

    Of course instead tax dollars are used for burial and medical care.

    Poor kid.

    Can you imagine just how desperate they must have been to try and come here like this.



    Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
    With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
    Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
    A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
    Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
    Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
    Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
    The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
    "Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
    ' With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

    My mother came here from Brazil because my Dad posted a $1,500 bond with the State Department to prove that she would not be a burden, so yes I can imagine the peoples desire to come here

    Too bad the Sheriff said he was not going to pursue Illegals, it might have saved her life.

    Does is say anything about sneaking over our borders illegally? Nope. That's about LEGAL immigrants. So, while I am sure that we are all very, very impressed with your ability to copy and paste some text, I wonder if any of us actually think you understand what those words mean.

    :lol:

    This new law, or any other law that is on the books would not have saved this women's life, and will not save any in the future.

    You can't state that as fact, mo chara. She may well have not bothered coming if she knew she would not be able to hide, work, or access services in the US.
