Immigration-Overload-Child-Death

Hidalgo County sheriff Eddie Guerra speaks about the 11-year-old Guatemalan immigrant whose body was discovered on June 15 during a press conference Monday June 30, 2014 in Edinburg, Texas. When authorities found the body of the boy in South Texas, a phone number for his brother in Chicago was scribbled on the inside of his belt buckle. The boy, wearing "Angry Birds" jeans, black leather boots and a white rosary around his neck, had come from his home country of Guatemala and apparently got lost in the Texas brush, near the border with Mexico and less than a mile from the nearest home.
