Increased security along the U.S.-Mexico border is forcing some migrants to traverse remote deserts with debilitating heat – a reality that leads to deaths.

The Associated Press reports that 5,513 bodies have been found in the past 15 years.

Critics charge that federal agents are more worried about enforcement than saving lives, the AP reported.

“The language coming out is alarmingly more of the same,” said Kat Rodriguez of Coalicion de Derechos Humanos in Tucson, who collects information on missing migrants to help medical examiners identify the dead, the AP wrote.

Many corpses are found with no way to identify the migrant, leaving a backlog of unidentified bodies.
