VIDEO: Two-year-old Ghanaian child dropped over 18-foot US-Mexico border wall

A new surveillance video released by US border patrol agents shows the child being dropped over the 18-foot US-Mexico border fence

Border patrol authorities in the United States have confirmed that a two-year-old child from Ghana was last weekend (Sunday) dropped over the 18-foot U S-Mexico border wall by a smuggling cartel.

In a disturbing surveillance video released by border officials, the child’s father who was at the other end of the border was seen catching her after being dropped over by the paid smugglers.

She was not injured throughout the process, border officials confirmed in a report by KUSI, a local news network based in San Diego.

United States Border Patrol Chief of the San Diego Sector, Aaron Heitke, warned “this could have been catastrophic.”

Many migrant shelters along the U.S.-Mexico border are extremely over capacity, as the United States has seen a surge in migrants seeking asylum after President Biden reversed many of former President Trump’s immigration policies that border patrol agents say were successful.

Border Patrol Agent, Moreno explained that this is a very coordinated smuggling effort.

Agent Morena explained the smugglers “don’t see these people as human beings, they don’t see them for what they are. They just see them as contraband, they see them as cargo, once they get them across, that’s when they get paid. If they don’t get these people across, they don’t get paid.”
