At least 5 dead as SUV chased by Border Patrol flips

At Least 4 Feared Dead in Texas Border Crash

"The others were being smuggled", Dimmit County Sheriff Marion Boyd said, the San Antonio Express reported. Investigators have said the vehicle was carrying 14 people and traveling more than 100 miles per hour when it lost control and overturned on Texas Highway 85 near Big Wells. He says the SUV with immigrants inside ran off the road during the chase, caught gravel, causing it to roll over.

In this photo provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a U.S. Border Patrol agent watches as people who've been taken into custody related to cases of illegal entry into the United States, stand in line at a facility Sunday in McAllen, Texas.

In Texas' Rio Grande Valley, the busiest corridor for people trying to enter the U.S., Border Patrol officials argue that they have to crack down on migrants and separate adults from children as a deterrent to others. He adds that no children were in the truck.

Dimmit County Sheriff Marion Boyd told KSAT that the chase reached speeds of about 100 miles per hour.

The driver was rushed to a hospital and the passenger is now in custody.

The organisation said the audio clip was recorded inside a facility and captures 10 children's reactions to being separated from their families. Border Patrol noticed 3 cars driving close to one another and suspected some kind of "trafficking event", so they proceeded to try and get them to pull over, The Huffington Post reports. The injured were taken to hospitals for treatment. A sixth person is believed to be in critical condition. "I must say though, far fewer than I was here two weeks ago".

"Well, we have an orchestra here", the deep, adult voice jokes amid the tears.

The staff gave her books and toys - but they weren't allowed to pick her up, to hold her or hug her to try to calm her. The names and nationalities of the victims have not been released. He is still in the hospital. The girl is being housed in a shelter, but was told that her mother might be deported without her.

Both sides of Highway 85 were closed. Vehicles were detoured to FM 468 and FM 1867.

Updated at 7:34 p.m. Sunday: Revised to include a statement from the Border Patrol.

"We've seen this many, many times, in not only this county but other counties along the border", Boyd said.

"I don't want them to stop my dad", one little girl is heard saying between sobs. But along with that, there needs to be cameras. "We dealt with him last week", Boyd said.

Several people are expected to be charged in Federal Court this weeks but their names have not been released or the charges they will face.

ProPublica also obtained audio from inside a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility, in which you can hear the cries of several Central American children who had been separated from their parents at the border.
