Current Mission Information
June 1 - June 12, 2014
ICFI teams will return to Falfurrias, Texas to exhume the remains of unidentified migrants. Work is being performed in collaboration with the Brooks County Sherriff's Department, County Judge and the four JPs.
Brooks County officials have struggled for years due to the overwhelming number of migrant deaths. In 2012 there were 130 cases and in 2013 there were 87 cases. The sparcely populated county is without a medical examiner's office and without forensic science experts to assist in these difficult international identifications.
The ICFI currently has 110 cases from Brooks County in addition to cases from other counties along the border.
