A growing number of immigrants have sustained injuries while entering the US illegally by climbing the border wall, El Paso immigrant advocate Ruben Garcia told The Post Monday, April 4.
As the director of Annunciation House, the largest immigrant shelter in El Paso, Garcia said he’s seeing immigrants who’ve hurt themselves on the wall two or three times a week.
“We’re receiving a 23-year-old ingenious woman from Guatemala who fell off the fence– fractured her ankle and then fractured her back. She’s coming to us in a wheelchair. We get those all of the time, all of the time,” Garcia said.
