“Criminal organizations will try to exploit any point. They don’t care about your life. They push these migrants through these 6.9 meter fences, so it’s dangerous,” says agent Angel Moreno.
Fantástico Report spoke to some of the Indian migrants to find out what happened, what their condition is and how they crossed to where they were detained. And they asked the authorities how often Brazilians were detained.
“Every day,” said Jack Warrington, an agent with Customs and Border Protection.

Last month, there was one of the biggest arrests: in two days, 183 Brazilians, including 17 children, were arrested at the border in California.
