Shocking video shows migrant at the border smugglers forcing children under water

What you are about to see is rather disturbing and it highlights the emergency at our southern borders.

Two customs and border protection videos released surfaced that show how dramatic and dangerous migrant crossings into the U.S. can be when involving small children.

In one video Human Smugglers can be seen trying to push kids and adults under a fence in an area filled with water. You can hear several small children crying as smugglers try to get them through the small hole in the fence under the water.

Watch.

The videos have come to light amid a surge of migrant families arriving at the border, overwhelming processing and holding centers.

At Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest, president Connie Phillips says she can't imagine the experience.

A record number of families crossed into the U.S. in recent months, resulting in the expansion of the “catch and release” policies that the US has — freeing people the system simply can't handle.

Since Dec. 21, Immigration and Customs Enforcement has freed more than 125,000 people into the U.S. who came into the country illegally.

Text included with the video says Mexican authorities responded in the second instance and were able to stop the smuggling attempt that saw the children being carried through the water.

It says one woman who was encouraged to return to her family on the Mexico side stayed in the U.S. and surrendered to Border Patrol agents.
