They were apprehended but the smuggler got away. 90,000 have come to the border since October and 85% of those have tried to cross illegally.
Three Guatemalans trying to enter Arizona illegally through Mexico on Monday dropped three young children from the top of the 18-foot wall down to family members on the U.S. side, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
The border agency said a security camera operator watching footage from Border Patrol’s Yuma Sector saw the group of people and a suspected smuggler at the wall near the San Luis Port of Entry. The smuggler helped the adults plus a 10-year-old child over the barrier from the Mexico side.
Once the adults were over the 18-foot barrier, the person from the Mexican side got the two smallest children — a two-year-old and seven-year-old — up to the top then dropped them to the adults below, according to a news release.
