Body of child believed to be from India found at U.S. border

Body of 7-Year-Old Girl From India Found in Remote Area of Arizona Desert

Tucson Chief Patrol Agent Roy Villareal stated "Our sympathies are with this little girl and her family, this is a senseless death driven by cartels who are profiting from putting lives at risk.".

Reports of deaths of migrants during the journey across the border have surged in recent weeks - though they get far less attention than deaths that occur of migrants in USA custody.

Another young child and an adult woman are still missing, though agents said they spotted footprints and believe the two may have headed back to Mexico. They noted the high temperature was approximately 108 degrees on the day her body was found.

A girl's remains were recovered a few hundred yards south of the global boundary, and an air and ground search ensued for the other migrants.

US Border Patrol agents found her remains this week in an area officials describe as "rugged desert wilderness", 17 miles west of Lukeville, Arizona.

The agency has repeatedly warned about the dangers of making the trek through Mexico and crossing the southern border illegally into the United States.

Up to May 30 of this year, PCOME recorded 58 migrants deaths in southern Arizona, most heat related.

An increasing number of Indian nationals are crossing into the United States from Mexico, according to immigration officials. Last year, more than 9,000 people from India were detained at U.S. borders nationwide - a big increase from the prior year, when that number was about 3,100. The CBP and Mexican authorities searched the area for any associated persons but no additional members of the group were located on either side of the border.

The two countries subsequently reached a deal on June 7 to avoid the tariffs that would see an expanded implementation of the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), commonly known as the "Remain in Mexico" policy and an increase in security throughout the country. They are among thousands of Africans and Asian migrants who fly to third countries and then embark on an arduous trek through Mexico and into the USA southern deserts led by smuggling cartels.
