A Mexican asylum-seeker slit his own throat on a bridge across the Rio Grande after being denied entry into the United States. The man tried to enter the United States at the Pharr–Reynosa International Bridge. An investigation is being conducted.
I am sorry that the man felt so desperate that he thought death was a better option than not being let into the U.S.
I just hope the bleeding hearts don't use his actions as some kind of emotional blackmail.
Because I wouldn't be shocked if it encourages more self harming/suicidal behaviour to push open boarders.
But, the fact of the matter is that our immigration system is overwhelmed by people who claim asylum falsely in order to obtain economic benefit.
