Border agents have thrown out 3586 jugs of water left for migrants in the desert. They did this knowing that 7000 migrants have died attempting to cross. THIS is why the death of Jackeline Caal, the 7yo migrant who died of thirst in US custody, should be referred to as murder.
United States border patrol agents routinely vandalise containers of water and other supplies left in the Arizona desert for migrants, condemning people to die of thirst in baking temperatures, according to two humanitarian groups.
In a report published on Wednesday, the Tucson-based groups said the agents committed the alleged sabotage with impunity in an attempt to deter and punish people who illegally cross from Mexico.
Volunteers found water gallons vandalised 415 times, on average twice a week, in an 800 sq mile patch of Sonoran desert south-west of Tucson, from March 2012 to December 2015, the report said. The damage affected 3,586 gallons.
