The U.S. Border Patrol Big Bend Sector has issued a warning to people attempting to cross the border illegally into the desert and mountains of West Texas during the ongoing extreme heat wave.
The sector highlights the tragic consequences of heat-related injuries, with many migrants losing their lives every year due to the harsh conditions.
In Fiscal Year 2023, Big Bend has already conducted 63 rescues and discovered five deceased migrants.
To prevent further casualties, the sector urges migrants not to risk their lives by crossing the border illegally in such dangerous weather conditions.
