A video of a crying boy that was abandoned in the Texas desert has emerged.
“Can you help me? It is that I was coming with a group and they abandoned me and I do not know where they are at,” the child asked the Border PAtrol.
“You do not know where they are at? They left you alone?” the agent asked.
“Of course, they abandoned me,” the child responded, while sobbing.
Border Patrol took the young boy to a nearby shelter.
Close to where the video had been filmed, Border Patrol agents apprehended around 200 migrants in La Joya.

At the park where they were waiting to board buses from Homeland Security, colored and numbered wristbands reportedly were found on the ground. Cartels and human traffickers operating in Mexico use those to organize and group the migrants before they cross into the U.S., Border Report added.
Some of those in La Joya, which is west of McAllen, were photographed huddling in blankets that a Border Patrol agent had passed out. Others, who were unaccompanied minors, were lined up in order of height after being asked their ages and home counties, according to Border Report.
Others who spoke to Border Report said they crossed the Rio Grande on old tires and rafts.
