DEAD MIGRANTS: 'All this blood -- is on Obama's hands'

The price of freedom is everywhere apparent with the untold migrants, most from South and Central America, who trek to the United States with little more than the clothes on their backs in search of a better life. Many lose their lives in their journey - and many of these migrants are brutally murdered. Volunteers are now coming forward to share grisly stories and photographs.
The Texas Border Volunteers group regularly rescues border crossers who walk to the point of dehydrated exhaustion, and some turn up on their doorsteps.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Bodies of illegal immigrants are turning up in south Texas as refugees roil across the U.S.-Mexico border. Dr. Mike 'Doc' Vickers of Brooks County, a Texas veterinarian who ranches cattle 70 miles from the border has since come forward with gruesome photos.
One photograph shows a dead body thrown across a tree near the doctor's ranch in Brooks County. The victim's eyes are missing and dried blood cascades down his shirtless body.
Vickers carries an M4 semiautomatic rifle with a 30-round magazine for his encounters with armed drug-runners on his ranch.
"This guy, obviously, had to lay down up against that tree, and that's where he died," Vickers says.
Birds of prey, falcons common around the Rio Grande River Valley "plucked his eyes out before he was dead," the doctor says. "He bled out through his eyes, which tells me that he was probably in a coma but they were eatin' on him before his heart stopped beating."
Vickers and his group intervened to save this tattooed drug-runner's life.
Documentary filmmaker Chris Burgard is working on a sequel to his 2007 documentary, "Border," which made a splash on the film-festival circuit years before illegal immigration swelled to what President Barack Obama now concedes is a "humanitarian crisis." When Burgard filmed "Border" in 2005, he said, "We had to go out and find illegal traffic . This time it found us."
U.S. Border Patrol agents captured more than 4,000 illegal immigrants like these men in the month of June in the land near Falfurrias, Texas -- including hundreds of children.
Burgard showed his film on Capitol Hill at the time, telling members of Congress that children were becoming pawns in Mexican drug cartels' smuggling operations into the U.S. homeland.
"I am not surprised to find immigrants dying 70 miles north of the border," Burgard says. "I am surprised that nine years later it is still a secret to most of the American people.
Underage illegal immigrants are trekking across treacherous terrain by the hundreds, some of them never living to see a Border Patrol agent.
"The Federal Government has long known about this,' he said, ticking off Texas and Arizona counties where human remains are continually turning up.
"Local officials who deal with collecting the bodies are so overwhelmed financially that the cost of coroner inquests on each case is dramatically affecting their budgets."
