And that’s just for the past “fiscal year.” From KOLD-TV Tucson

ARIZONA (KOLD) – On the Arizona-Sonora border, since October 1, 2009, the number of human remains recovered reached 153, according to the Coalición de Derechos Humanos spokesperson Kat Rodriguez.   

The Tucson based organization comprised medical examiner reports from Pima, Yuma and Cochise counties in order to formulate the death count.

Communities continue to witness death on the U.S.-Mexico border, while the immigration debate rages on.

Since Derechos Humanos started their organization fifteen years, about 2,000 deaths have occurred along the border, Rodriquez stated.

The 153 body count includes 98 males, 19 females, and 36 individuals of unknown gender.  The identities of approximately 107 of the recovered individuals remain unknown.

Without DNA results, which is costly, it is impossible to know even basic information about the individuals found. Identify the people and returning them to their families is even more difficult. 

And check out this list of recovered remains. We need to close our southern borders as a humanitarian effort.
