AZ-SRT Rescues Family With a Young Child

From MCDC President Chris Simcox,
December 10, 2006 -Altar Valley, Arizona

While working in the Altar Valley south of Three Points, Arizona on Sunday December the 10th, the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps Arizona Search and Rescue Team (AZ-SRT) came upon a group of four foreign nationals who admitted to entering the country illegally. Among the group was a young boy, approximately 4 years of age, accompanied by his mother, father and another male individual. A quick assessment of their physical condition revealed that the AZ-SRT had a rescue situation on their hands. The individuals were immediately provided with fresh water and energy bars after the members of the AZ-SRT learned the individuals had been two days without fresh water or food. At the time of the encounter the four individuals were sharing one bottle filled with contaminated water from a cattle tank.

The four individuals including the child revealed that they had traveled from Chiapas, Mexico and entered our country illegally at Sasabe, Arizona where they teamed up with a coyote who was leading a larger group through the desert. After only a few hours of traveling by foot and not being able to keep up with the group because of the slow pace of their 4-year-old son, the main group and the coyote left them behind.

Not knowing where to meet up with the smuggler who was to take them to Florida and knowing they were hopelessly lost the group had no choice but to follow a well-worn path they hoped would lead them to connecting with their smuggler for the next leg of their trip.

Despite the heaviest concentration of border patrol agents, combined with National Guard personnel, the trails through the Altar Valley, north of Sasabe, Arizona are covered with hundreds of fresh footprints , evidence that the invasion continues at a record pace.

While scouting trails covering less than one-half mile, the AZ-SRT discovered numerous new lay-up areas littered with fresh backpacks, clothing, feces and water bottles. Among the backpacks, numerous airline tickets were found, along with birth certificates, identification cards, note books with phone numbers,addresses and bank account numbers of foreign nationals from Mexico. Most interestingly, as you can see in the photographs that accompany this story, AZ-SRT volunteers found employee ID cards from a General Motors plant in Mexico. The IDs allowed the workers illegal access to United States, where they were employed at a General Motors plant in Tennessee. The Id's had recently expired.

The members of the AZ-SRT were gratified they could provide life saving aid to the four individuals who were turned over to Border Patrol for processing and were repatriated to their home country of Mexico.
