Mexican Immigrants Getting Injured at Alarming Rates by Jumping Border Fence

The treacherous trek through the 100-degree desert may not be the most difficult challenge for many immigrants who are sneaking over the border from Mexico.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that an increasing number of people are getting injured trying to jump the border fence, which has been made higher in some areas.

As a result, hospitals are seeing numerous case of injured immigrants. Most of the injuries are to the feet, ankles and spine.

“It’s the same crossing through the wall or through the desert,” said Gilda Felix, director of the Juan Bosco immigrant shelter from Nogales. “Both are difficult and dangerous.”

The exact number of people getting injured from jumping the fence is unclear, but nearly 100 case were reported so far this year by two Mexican consulates.
