Migrants Found Hiding in New Mexico Middle School for a Second Time

via Agape Management

A middle school in New Mexico was placed on lockdown after migrants were discovered hiding inside the school building.

Such incidents occur weekly near the U.S.-Mexico border according to local Border Patrol officials, as migrants try to evade apprehension after crossing through openings in the border wall located just miles from the school.

“Being that those schools are so close to the border. The proximity of the border, these types of events happen weekly,” U.S. Border Patrol spokesperson Refugio Socorro said.

“A lot of people in that area that try to evade arrest from our apprehensions do have a criminal history or have immigration issues. So that’s the reason why they just take off running and go through locations they’re not even familiar with,” he added.

One mother expressed fear for her child’s safety given the regular lockdowns.

“At first, I was scared with every notification from the school that they’re on lockdown. As a parent, you’re going to get worried,” the mother said.

The school district thanked Border Patrol and local police for their response and maintaining student security.

“We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to the U.S. Border Patrol agents and the officers of the Sunland Park Police Department for their swift and professional response to this situation. Thanks to their efforts, the safety and security of our students and staff were maintained throughout the incident,” Gadsden Independent School District (GISD) stated.

A polling CEO was cited saying the political impacts must be analyzed given the circumstances, though writing about it in relation to tragic murders was difficult.
