2 Seeking Illegal Entry Into U.S. Found Dead

From Times Wire Reports

Border Patrol agents found the bodies of two illegal immigrants who died trying to enter the U.S. from Mexico less than a month after 14 people died on another illegal journey across the scorching hot border, agents in Del Rio said.

The two deaths and those of the 14 immigrants who were abandoned in the Arizona desert last month by smugglers highlighted a perennial summer border problem.

The most recent victims, a woman and a teenage boy, traveling in separate groups, died while passing through the rugged South Texas terrain, where temperatures this week reached 114 degrees.
