United States immigration: Five die after high-speed chase by border agents

BREAKING: At Least 5 Dead After SUV Carrying Illegal Immigrants Crashes - Timothy Meads

At least five people died and several others were injured Sunday after an SUV packed with a dozen undocumented immigrants flipped on a South Texas highway while fleeing Border Patrol agents.

A auto chase between border patrol vehicles and an SUV carrying 14 people resulted in a auto crash in Big Wells, Texas on Sunday.

An agent attempted to stop the third vehicle, but the driver would not pull over, which led to the chase that was taken over by a Dimmit County Sheriff's deputy and eventually ended in a deadly crash shortly after noon.

The unidentified driver of the crashed vehicle and one passenger are believed to be USA citizens and are in custody, while the other 12 passengers - five of whom died - have been identified as undocumented.

Four people were pronounced dead at the scene, while a fifth later died after being airlifted to a hospital in San Antonio.

It's not an uncommon sight for Boyd, who said Sunday it's very rare that a day goes by that his deputies do not get involved in a chase due to some form of smuggling from the border. Many adults who crossed the border without legal permission could be charged with illegal entry and placed in jail, away from their children.

One utterly distressed Salvadoran girl, which ProPublica said was all of six, can be heard begging authorities to call her aunt. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, is chairman of that committee and said in a statement that the goal should always be to keep families together as much as possible.

Agents found numerous illegal immigrants in each of the two stopped vehicles and made arrests for immigration violations. Multiple people from both vehicles were arrested.

Tens of thousands of families are caught crossing the U.S. -Mexico border illegally every year. Authorities say the vehicle topped speeds of over 100 miles per hour.

Boyd said he was not sure of the passengers' countries of origin, but that most immigrants passing through the county come from Mexico or Central America.

When asked why Border Patrol agents started the chase, Boyd said, "It's called good police work".

He added: "This is a ideal example of why our borders need to be secure".

Former Housing and Urban Development administrator Julian Castro was also at the first stop of the tour, which was a processing center for immigrants - where at one point he walked toward the side door of the facility holding stuffed animals and letters to deliver to the children in the facility. She says, 'I promise I'll behave, but please get me out of here.
