An image of Texas Department of Safety Sergeant Lupe Casarez "consoling a terrified 2-yo toddler dumped alone across the border by a ruthless smuggler" was posted to Twitter on Thursday, highlighting the "ruthlessness of the Cartels" as they operate along the porous southern border.
Fox News Correspondent Griff Jenkins said it was "one of the most powerful images I’ve shot covering the border for more than a decade" and documented how the smugglers placed a note around the child's neck that had contact information for someone in Louisiana.
Jenkins reported on Sgt Casarez rescuing the boy on Tuesday when the DPS officer also arrested "half a dozen Chinese migrants" who were entering along the southern border.
Former senior advisor to President Donald Trump, Stephen Miller, replied to a comment about Title 42 and said, The Trump Admin reunified these minors with their families in their home countries, thereby ending the child smuggling pipeline. Biden is transporting these minors to the US-based criminals who arranged their smuggling, unleashing the largest child smuggling wave in all history."
Title 42 enables Department of Homeland Security and Border Patrol officials the ability to expel illegal immigrants over health concerns.
The Supreme Court of the United States issued a stay on the lifting of Title 42 in December which was set to expire.
Biden, who dramatically loosened restrictions along the southern border when he took office, said that the time to lift Title 42 was "overdue" and the order is now set to end in May.
The Associated Press reports that officials have invoked Title 42, "2.5 million times on grounds of preventing the spread of COVID-19" to stave off the number of illegal immigrants crossing the border.
Biden's border crisis has seen a record-high number of illegal immigrants flood over the border, with 2,378,944 encounters with illegal immigrants reported in the 2022 fiscal year and 1,659,206 reported in FY 2021.
Mexican cartels have been trafficking humans and drugs across the border in record numbers over the past two years.
