Border Patrol Agents Remove Blankets, Humanitarian Supplies from Desert Amid Record Low Temperatures in Southern Arizona

Tucson, AZ- A hidden camera video released by Tucson-based humanitarian organization No More Deaths
shows an agent of the U.S. Border Patrol removing clean blankets and
food intended for migrants in distress. The January 8 video captures a
Border Patrol agent on a desert trail near the town of Arivaca, Arizona,
about 12 miles north of the international border. The agent stops,
opens a plastic bag surrounding dry blankets and canned food, inspects
the contents, and then leaves, removing the life-saving provisions.
Between January 9 and 15 temperatures in southern Arizona dropped to
historic lows, and the blankets and food are provided by humanitarian
organizations to prevent death and illness due to these extreme
temperatures. The January 8 video can be viewed at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqJUUf2EKhg.
