Since border patrol has hands full, sheriff's office unites with nonprofit Texas Border Rescue to cover 944 miles looking for those dying from heat.
"Hourlong response times for injured, lost or distressed migrants in the Brooks County hot terrain will be cut in half with a new partnership between the sheriff’s office and Texas Border Rescue, officials said. The office’s partnership with the nonprofit will provide a search and rescue crew of 10 along with a recently announced addition of 15 volunteer deputy sheriffs. That will mean deputy numbers patrolling about 944 square miles of land will double." -- Beatriz Alvarado, the Corpus Christi Caller-Times
