โ€‹Now, many would argue that our country is set to experience one of its worst migrant crises in decades.ย

Since April 2020, the number of migrants being stopped at the U.S-Mexico border has been steadily rising and, under a public health order issued by former POTUS Donald Trump, Title 42, the Biden administration has been rapidly denying most single adults and families entry into the country.

However, the order has been allowing teenagers and children to stay...

And they have been arriving in ever larger numbers.

As of Sunday, March 14th, more than 4,000 migrant children were being held by the Border Patrol custody...

Including at least 3,000 being held in custody longer than the seventy-two-hour limit set by a court order, a U.S official told AP.

The number of children crossing by themselves, mostly from Central America, appears to be surging in particular in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas.

The Border Patrol took in 280 there alone on just one day in March.

As a result of this, President Biden has been put in a difficult position.

Biden has labeled the detention of migrants as a "moral failing and a national shame" and promises to "welcome immigrants in our communities" on his official website, which has left many feeling confused and somewhat frustrated with the current situation at the border.

He even issued a warning to Mexican residents, telling them to not come to the U.S borders.

He has been slammed by Republicans for what they view as an encouragement to illegal border crossers...

And has even been criticized by some Democrats over what they see as the prolonged detention of minors.

Things haven't been this bad in a long time...

Getty

And now, they've just gotten even worse going by some recent - and very harrowing - footage from the New Mexico border.

Disturbing footage from the US-Mexico border has emerged this week showing coyotes dumping 2 small children over a fourteen-foot wall and leaving them all by themselves...

Getty

And people have been left utterly horrified by what they saw.

The heartbreaking video was shared by El Paso Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gloria Chavez on Twitter...

Twitter

And the night-vision cameras showed 2 coyotes on the Mexican side of the border climbing up the wall and eventually sitting on top of it before lowering 2 young children over the other side.

Chavez confirmed the 2 children were little girls, aged 3 and 5...

Twitter

And it's harrowing to watch as the smugglers ruthlessly let go of the children, allowing them to fall and land heavily from the fourteen-foot drop.

Chavez confirmed that although the little girls were left miles away from the nearest residence, they were later rescued by border patrol agents...

Twitter

And she explained in the video that they are "currently working with our law enforcement partners in Mexico and attempting to identify these ruthless human smugglers so as to hold them accountable to the fullest extent of the law."

She then added:

Twitter

"I'm appalled by the way these smugglers viciously dropped innocent children from a fourteen-foot border barrier last night. If not for the vigilance of our Agents using mobile technology, these 2 tender-aged siblings would have been exposed to the harsh elements of the desert environment for hours."

You can watch the haunting footage here:

We sincerely hope that these smugglers will face justice for their actions and, of course, we hope these little girls will find a loving home very soon.
