Two bodies found near floating Rio Grande barrier

Two bodies have been found near the chained buoys in the Rio Grande, according to Mexican authorities.

The Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the Texas Department of Public Safety notified them that they discovered the first “lifeless body caught in the southern part of the buoys that were installed in the Rio Grande River.”

Mexican authorities announced hours later that the Beta Piedras Negras Group discovered a second body approximately 5 kilometers away from the first. The two bodies had not been identified.

Mexican officials doubled down on their position that the buoys installed by Texas authorities are a violation of Mexico’s sovereignty, pose significant dangers to migrants and do “not correspond to the close relationship that the governments of the United States and Mexico have maintained.”
