BROWNSVILLE — U.S. Border Patrol agents rescued two unauthorized immigrants from Guatemala who had been bitten by a rattlesnake on a ranch near Kingsville, Customs and Border Protection said Tuesday.

The agents came across the men early Tuesday morning and took them to the emergency room at Christus Spohn Hospital Kleberg in Kingsville.

Since the fiscal year began in October, Rio Grande Valley sector agents have rescued nearly 200 people and found the remains of 64. Rescues often escalate in the summer, when agents come across or are called by unauthorized immigrants suffering from heat exhaustion.

Why did they do something so stupid? The rattlesnakes were defending our borders. let the invaders die and feed the buzzards.

Hmm...unauthorized immigrants. Much better than the last attempt: “irregular migrants.”

Maybe I am slow on the up take but was that a new term: Unauthorized Immigrants.

Someone just needs to tell them they are simple run of the mill illegals.

I notice Harbor Freight is selling a nice backhoe type digger that can be towed behind a pick-up and runs the hydraulics off of a Briggs and Stratton hand crank engine ... just saying, why feed the buzzards that will call attention to the charnal.

It’s 108 degrees in central TX—no sign of rain anywhere near here.

I shudder to think what the conditions are in the Rio Grande Valley.

I almost pity these folks.

Hmmmmmmmmm.

The Rattlesnake was a symbol of the American revolution, turning up on American battle flags.

“Don’t tread on me!”

Hmmmmmmmmm.

How long before the ranch owner is sued for having rattlesnakes on his property?

Also, how did two people get bitten by the same snake?

It is hard to understand why anyone would set out across there this time of year.

All those dead bodies they find should be photographed and sent to Mexico to be shown around the country. Might discourage some wantta be’s from crossing the border.

Humm is right. I can envision a company of rattlesnake rodeo cowboys rounding up sacks full of those critters and dumping them in the “no go” zones along the border. Brilliant idea.

Just wait until they decide to sue and demand the judge give them the entire spread. The King Ranch corporation lawyers will eat them alive.

Just like that convoy of Mexican Army humvees carrying 33 Mexican soldiers that crossed the bridge at Donna exactly one year ago. Claimed they took a wrong turn and ended up in Texas. Uh, like that big bridge didn't give them a clue?

Guatemala is a very temperate climate with 6 months of wet season and 6 months of dry. Something like the Sonoran Desert is completely and utterly foreign to them.

Load 'em up and move 'em out...

They are welcome to all of mine they can catch. Sounds like an excellent use for 'em...
