While the border crisis in the southwestern U.S. continues, as countless unattended children making their way from Guatemala and elsewhere flood the Texas border, there are reports of migrant children found dead along the Rio Grande. The discovery was made by a Fox News reporter, and she questions why no mention of this has been made by the Obama administration - or other mainstream media.
To date, the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration is 15-year-old Gilberto Ramos from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from heat exhaustion.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Fox News reporter Jana Winter says that several dead children have been discovered "washed up along the riverbank" of the Rio Grande. She says there have been no reports of this thus far.
This would seemingly indicate a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. To date, the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration is 15-year-old Gilberto Ramos from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from heat exhaustion.

"FoxNews.com accompanied Texas lawmaker Louie Gohmert, a former judge and current Republican Congressman, to the site in the pre-dawn hours of Saturday," Winter says.
"Gohmert, whose district lies some 550 miles northeast of what has become the most heavily-trafficked people-smuggling route in the world, has been to the location many times, but has never seen it so understaffed and overwhelmed.
"'I'm more concerned than ever [that the border is] so seriously undermanned and I'll be raising hell in Washington.'"
Gohmert invited FoxNews.com to see the situation first-hand.
"The Border Patrol agents loaded and unloaded their vehicles packed with the newly-arrived illegal immigrants - including women pregnant or nursing infants, and small, unaccompanied children - throughout the evening and early morning hours. At first, they were mostly teenagers, ages 14 to 17, arriving with their mother or brothers or no one at all. Then came the pregnant women. A mother nursing her infant. A small girl with wide eyes clutching a doll.
"A total of 72 came in during the first dark hours of Saturday morning. A third were unaccompanied children.
"The life jackets helped many make it across the Rio Grande from Reynosa, the Mexican city across the water from Mission, just west of McAllen. Sources say they come over on rafts ferried by the so-called 'coyotes,' the human smugglers whose means of transport are rendered useless whenever discovered by the Border Patrol. Many don't make it across the river; multiple sources became emotional when recounting their discoveries of small, lifeless bodies washed up along the riverbank."
In May of this year, more than 9,500 unaccompanied alien children were referred to ORR - an increase of more than 850 percent since 2012.
