Thousands of immigrants have died on the ranches of Brooks County, Texas.
Some ranchers are taking up arms to fight back against the influx of migrants, while others are setting up water stations and trying to save their lives. However, as temperatures rise and the humanitarian crisis continues, the deaths are at an all-time high.
When Shane Alfonso (pictured in top photo) saw probation officers walk into his backyard, he picked up a shotgun and ran for it. He knew that possession of a firearm and the stolen dirt bike in his backyard were violations of the terms of his probation.
A team of Sheriff’s deputies and probation officers from San Bernardino County eventually caught up with Alfonso, dragged him to the ground and took him into booking.
Alfonso is one of thousands of offenders who have committed non-violent, non-serious, non-sexual crimes that normally would have landed them in state prison, but are now under county supervision.
