Three Salvadoran sisters are alone on a Rio Grande islet near Mexico

According to Mexico’s immigration office, three sisters from El Salvador have been rescued from an islet in the Rio Grande after being allegedly abandoned by traffickers.

The Mexican National Guard issued a warning on Wednesday, and the three kids—ages one, six, and nine—were later located.

The girls were able to be securely removed from the islet known as Isla del Mudo thanks to the assistance of a task group from the National Institute of Immigration, which reacted to the request.

The elder girl is seen holding her younger sister in the video before passing her over to one of the agents while she and her other sibling get onto the boat.

The System for the Integral Development of the Family in Mexico eventually received the children.

According to the foreign ministry of the Central American country, representatives of the Salvadoran embassy in Monterrey, northern Mexico, have been in touch with the local government.

The Rio Grande may be seen as the main entry point for immigrants looking to enter the United States legally or illegally. It forms a portion of the border between Texas and the northern Mexican states of Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León, and Tamaulipas.

Additionally, it is a place where smugglers have often abandoned children. Some people have not been as lucky and have perished in the swift river currents.

U.S. Border Patrol authorities in the Texas border town of Roma in April 2022 found a two-year-old Honduran kid among a group of migrants who had been halted along the river side. The boy’s parents had sent him over the border by himself.


A two-year-old youngster from Latin America was discovered wandering by himself on a boat ramp along the Rio Grande in Eagle Pass, Texas, a month earlier.

Seven-year-old Venezuelan Victoria Lugo perished in the river in January 2022 after being separated from her mother, Mayerlin Mayor, and a group of refugees.

When the mayor’s daughter lost her hand and was carried downstream by the river’s current, they were crossing a section of the canal.
