Fox News program "Fox & Friends" reported this morning that undocumented immigrants are "bombarding" Brooks County, Texas, with 911 calls.
“They stumbled across the border illegally and now they need your help,” lamented co-host Steve Doocy, reports RawStory.com. “A small Texas town forced to answer 911 from stranded illegals in Spanish."
The conservative morning show played two 911 calls: one man called about a medical emergency, and a couple called about having gone without water in their home for three days, noted MediaMatters.org (video below).
“Not only are they understaffed and lacking resources, now they’ve got to deal with illegal immigrants who have no business being here,” complained co-host Brian Kilmeade.
Kilmeade then asked Brooks County Chief Deputy Urbino Martinez, "So those calls you have to respond to, even though, for the most part, when you get there, you realize they're not even American citizens?"
“That’s correct, but they’re on U.S. soil, and due process comes into play, and that’s the way we’re taking them as,” Chief Deputy Martinez replied.
