Agents in southeastern Texas found a three-year-old immigrant boy wandering alone in a cornfield near the border early Tuesday, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
The toddler was crying and in need of attention when agents from the Rio Grande Valley Sector discovered him near Brownsville on Tuesday morning.
The article goes on to state the following:
The only piece of information found on the boy was a phone number and name written on the bottom of one of his shoes.
The boy’s nationality is unknown, but he is believed to have been part of a larger group that illegally crossed into the U.S. from Mexico and got separated from a person in the group.
Early this morning, #USBP Agents found a 3-year-old boy alone and crying in a corn field in TX. He had his name & phone numbers written on his shoes. #CBP is attempting to reach his family. We believe the boy was with a larger group that ran when they encountered Agents. pic.twitter.com/0s0zwmFxih

Responses to CBP’s post on Twitter demonstrated dismay, concern and frustration. Examples follow.
This is terrible. Unfortunately kids are a valuable commodity and are used to exploit our immigration loopholes. We need to take away the incentive to come here illegally in the first place.

And left him behind. His real parents would never have done that.

Likely the kid was only with the group in case they got caught – then the kid can be used as “family member” and screen for asylum. So many illegals caught on the border …any idea how many are actually getting through without being seen and apprehended? Hundreds? Thousands?

This breaks my heart. If he needs a place to stay please reach out.
