medialova.com– A huge crocodile spotted in the waters of the Rio Grande that is becoming a new danger for migrants.
It is alleged that the animal was intentional to avoid the passage of people trying to cross the river to reach the United States.
The United States Border Patrol confirmed the appearance of a new danger for all migrants trying to cross the border by the Rio Grande: a huge crocodile swimming through the waters of Piedras Negras and Acu Tsosa, Coahuila.
Faced with the news of the sighting, many people showed their suspicion that this specimen was brought to the place to avoid the passage of those who tried to reach the North American country in this way.
According to what Border Patrol agents reported, the reptile was seen between Eagles Pass and Del Rio, in Texas, United States, as well as on the sides of Acu Mossa and Piedras Negras, Coahuila. The moment was recorded in the photo in which the specimen is seen swimming.
It should be noted that the various species of crocodiles that inhabit Mexico are located in Chiapas, Colima, Guerrero, Jalisco, Michoacan, Quintana Roo, Nayarit, Yucatan and Sinaloa.
In the case of the United States, there is a species distributed in the southeast of the country, from North Carolina to the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas; it is the American crocodile, also known as the Mississippi River crocodile.
However, since 2019, the Ministry of the environment of Coahuila, confirmed the presence of crocodiles and crocodiles in the waters of the river, this after a video went viral in which lizards are observed on the banks of water bodies.
It should be noted that it is considered that the animal does not come naturally, since the inhabitants of Texas have alluded to several occasions to “fill the river with crocodiles” as a measure to prevent the passage of migrants.
In August 2021, for example, in a social media group called Texans for Closing the Border, breeders from the state raised the idea of hypothetically throwing a thousand crocodiles at the Rio Grande in Valverde County in Texas in order to stop the passage of migrants.
In a post circulating on social media networks, it was assured that migrants are only ” bringing trouble to the region.”
Rio Grande and its dangers
From central Mexico, the shortest route to the US border is South Texas, so many migrants choose to travel to the Mexican cities of Matamoros, Reynosa, Laredo or Piedras Negras, from where they cross the border entering the waters of the Cuadalosos River.
In addition, from this January to the end of April 2022, the lifeless bodies of 19 migrants were found from the Rio Grande in their attempt to cross the border into the United States, the National Migration Institute (INM) reported.
All migrants died from drowning; however, the INM did not specify which country they came from, how many adults (between men and women) and how many minors.
The same institution announced that from January 1 to April 13, 2022, 115 thousand 279 migrants were intercepted by immigration units on the territory of Mexico, of which 97 thousand were of legal age (69 thousand 868 men and 27 thousand 862 women) and 17 thousand 649 were minors (10 thousand 226 boys and 7 thousand 423 girls.
According to the report, most were from Honduras, Guatemala, Cuba and Nicariagua.
