Shocking images of rotting illegal immigrant corpses left to die after border crossings; ‘this blood…is on Obama’s hands’
The dead bodies of illegal immigrants are turning up in south Texas as Central Americans pour across the U.S.-Mexico border, and a veterinarian who ranches cattle 70 miles from ground zero has the photos to prove it.
Dr. Mike ‘Doc’ Vickers of Brooks County, Texas showed some of the grisly images to MailOnline, all of them far too grotesque to publish unedited. One picture shows a corpse propped up against a tree near his ranch in Brooks County, his eyes missing and dried blood cascading down his shirtless body. Falcons native to the Rio Grande river valley ‘plucked his eyes out before he was dead,’ the animal doctor concludes. ‘He bled out through his eyes, which tells me that he was probably in a coma but they were eatin’ on him before his heart stopped beating.’
Burgard is working on a sequel to his 2007 documentary, ‘Border,’ which made a splash on the film-festival circuit years before illegal immigration swelled to what President Barack Obama now concedes is a ‘humanitarian crisis.’ When he filmed ‘Border’ in 2005, he said, ‘we had to go out and find illegal traffic. This time it found us.’
‘I am not surprised to find immigrants dying 70 miles north of the border,’ Burgard told MailOnline, but ‘I am surprised that nine years later it is still a secret to most of the American people. The Federal Government has long known about this,’ he said, ticking off Texas and Arizona counties where human remains are continually turning up. ‘Local officials who deal with collecting the bodies are so overwhelmed financially that the cost of coroner inquests on each case is dramatically affecting their budgets.’
Vickers, 64, told MailOnline on Wednesday that since 2012 his organization, the Texas Border Volunteers, has counted 259 dead bodies in his native Brooks County alone, including those of children. The flow is ‘four times what it was in 2011. A four-fold increase,’ says Vickers. He agrees with Republicans in Congress who point fingers of blame at President Obama, who declared in 2012 that the federal government would no longer pursue illegal immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children before 2007.
‘When Obama started talking about the DREAM Act, and this and that about the DREAMers, I mean it was like, overnight we started seeing hordes of these teenagers coming in from Central America,’ Vickers told MailOnline. ‘I’ve got pictures of them. He started talking about the DREAM Act and all of that stuff in 2012,’ the veterinarian said, ‘and here they come.’
About 82 per cent of them were so-called ‘OTM’ border crossers — ‘Other Than Mexican.’ For the mild-mannered vet, the buck stops in the Oval Office.
‘All this blood we see out here is on Obama’s hands.’
The images were too disturbing to post here but here is the full unedited footage shot by Chris Burgard.
