A video shows a child alone near the US-Mexico border asking a Border Patrol agent for help.
The video shows the boy crying and asking the agent, “Can you help me?”
He later says, “I was with a group of people and they dumped me and I don’t know where they are.”
“I’m afraid,” he says.

CBP told ABC13 that the boy was 10 and from Nicaragua.
“Scenes like these are all too common, as smugglers continue to abandon children in desolate areas, with zero regard for their well-being,” a CBP spokesperson told ABC13.
CBP said the boy would be medically screened and put in the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement.
The administration has said that it doesn’t want to turn the children back to dangerous conditions or send them to someone in the US who has not been properly vetted, adding that this leads to crowded detention centers at the border.
