PHOENIX -- The number of deaths among illegal immigrants crossing the Arizona desert from Mexico is soaring so high this month that the medical examiner's office that handles the bodies is using a refrigerated truck to store some of them, the chief examiner said Friday.
The bodies of 40 illegal immigrants have been brought to the office of Pima County Medical Examiner Dr. Bruce Parks since July 1. At that rate, Parks said the deaths could top the single-month record of 68 in July 2005 since his office began tracking them in 2000.
"Right now, at the halfway point of the month, to have so many is just a very bad sign," he said. "It's definitely on course to perhaps be the deadliest month of all time."
From Jan. 1 to July 15, the office has handled the bodies of 134 illegal immigrants, up from 93 at the same time last year and 102 in 2008. In 2007, when the office recorded the highest annual deaths of illegal immigrants, 140 bodies had been taken there through July 15.
Parks said his office, which handles immigrant bodies from three counties, is currently storing roughly 250 bodies and had to start using a refrigerated truck because of the increase in immigrant deaths this month.

“Anyone risking crossing that desert in the summer has a death wish...”
They could also just be plain stupid or not have any clue about the laws of thermodynamics.
“Oh, I forgot:
4. Buzzards gotta eat too”
A green solution to the border problem.
You’ll catch no grief from me. I whole-heartedly agree. If you commit a crime, you must be prepared to accept ALL consequences of said action. Regardless of what La Raza, the Catholic Church,the DemocRATS, et al have to say: entering into this country illegally is a FEDERAL CRIME!!! If they die along the way, no skin off my nose. They knew what they were doing was wrong. Let them pay the price for their crime.
Liberal use of land mines and razorwire wouldn’t hurt either.
If they’re dying anyway, why don’t they do something more noble and attack the problems in their own country?
Calderon is a Cabron.
The bastard wants to dump his excess popuation onto the US.
God DAMN Calderon. And all the Pieces of mierda who help him.
Oh! God! Don't give then any ideas.
Although even Reagan had an amnesty on his watch, back in ‘86.
EVEN Reagan??? Reagan gave the only blanket amnesty ever granted in the history of our nation.
For over 200 years, the United states only granted amnesty in individual cases and had never given amnesty to large numbers of illegal aliens. Because of chain migration, those granted amnesty have brought in an additional 142,000 dependents - relatives brought in to the United States to join their family members.
The amnesty of 1986 was supposed to be a “one time only” amnesty. Yet since 1986, Congress passed a total of 7 amnesties for illegal aliens:
1. The Immigration and Reform Control Act (IRCA) Amnesty of 1986 - the “one-time only” blanket amnesty for some 2.8 million illegal aliens.
2. Section 245(i) The Amnesty of 1994 - a temporary rolling amnesty for 578,000 illegal aliens.
3. Section 245(i) The Extension Amnesty of 1997 - an extension of the rolling amnesty created in 1994.
4. The Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA) Amnesty of 1997 - an amnesty for nearly one million illegal aliens from Central America.
5. The Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act Amnesty (HRIFA) of 1998 - an amnesty for 125,000 illegal aliens from Haiti.
6. The Late Amnesty of 2000 - an amnesty for approximately 400,000 illegal aliens who claimed they should have been amnestied under the 1986 IRCA amnesty.
7. The LIFE Act Amnesty of 2000 - a reinstatement of the rolling Section 245(i) amnesty to an estimated 900,000 illegal aliens.
After the 1986 amnesty, illegal immigration increased significantly. Census Bureau 2000 data indicate that 700,000 to 800,000 illegal aliens settle in the U.S. each year.
Reagan's amnesty threw the flood gates of our border wide open. Additional amnesties granted 6 times during the K’Toon years encouraged even more to rush the border.
Yet somehow President George W. Bush is charged with the sole responsibility for our illegal immigration problem and our wide open borders. Disgusting.”
That worthless RINO had the political capitol on 01 to seal the border PERMANTLY!! But what does he do??? The Traitor says THAT we are Racists and then ,little things like:”See you at the signing” Referring to the Amnesty bill him and the other chitbag McCain along with Kennedy dreamed up..
Border Agents in Prison for doing their JOBS!! Where ,Where are the Parallels with Reagan? Also letting a drug dealing Smuggler go free.
I am leaving OUT his complete nincompoop war management,The handling of Iraq in general and destruction of our country in general along with little things like rolling over and Pissing himself when the Rats Squeaked at him.ONE Time : THE TURD DIVIDED the party over his Amnesty and let the Rats flow across the house in 06 and the Ghetto crawler in 08 to the whitehouse. YES G W BUSH is the Architect of this.
Illegal trespassing Immigrant Deaths in Arizona Desert Soaring in July
In the end, lawlessness benefits not. If they left really cared about the illegals, they would enforce immigration laws and expand guest worker programs.
that question, why so many want to leave mexico, does not fit the agenda of the left
mexico is not without resources. I believe its’ GDP puts it in top 15 countries in the world. The fact that it is so corrupt is NOT our problem.
I get tired of the argument tht it is only an accident of birth that makes us Americans and if we had been born in mexico we’d do what ever it took to get out.
the same could be said for 30 other countries.
We are not the dumping ground for the world
I blame Obama for this. All his talk about immigration reform with its attendant granting of citizenship to illegals has got these folks all riled up and hustling to get into America before the cut-off date (whatever it may be).
Amen. Justice was properly served.
``For the wages of sin is death...''. That paycheck was cashed by these illegals violating the law and stealing from our country.
Maybe Daddy NObama should run right down to Arizona and provide water bottles to the idiots who enter that searing hot desert.
My anecdotal observations are that the Sect. of Homeland Security is full of baloney. There was a lot more noticeable Border Patrol activity in the last two years of Bush’s presidency. It slowed down quite a bit after Obama took office. The National Guard troops that were here left. But maybe they’re working elsewhere on strengthening the border. haha
Sounds like a great plan to me, but you’re right. It’s not going to happen.
Yes they have done such a great job on their country just what we need here breaking our laws.
