How should U.S Customs and Border Protection Agents pursue high-speed chases that involve migrants and smugglers?
Due to a rapid influx of immigration, CBP Agents renew concerns about accountability on how to pursue migrants and smugglers to stop the rise of deadly Border Patrol chases.
A recent case of a deadly high-speed chase happened here in the City of Las Cruces as Angie Simms searched for her missing 25-year old son, Erik A. Molix, who was involved in a deadly high-speed chase after driving with nine undocumented immigrants. Molix was being pursued by CBP Agents at speeds of up to 80 miles per hour.
Angie Simms later found her son in critical condition in a hospital in El Paso, Texas. Molix suffered injuries such as head trauma and was in a medically induced coma. He passed away two weeks after the high-speed chase.
Deaths have risen in the past years but, the lack of accountability of determining how to approach cases involving smugglers and migrant
is yet to be determined.
