Mexican asylum-seeker cuts own throat yards from US border after being denied entry: report

A unidentified Mexican refuge searcher ended his own life Wednesday only yards from the U.S. outskirt after he was denied passage, a report said.

The man was in his 30s, Reuters revealed, refering to two Mexican security authorities. The occurrence happened on a scaffold traversing the Rio Grande around 5 p.m. neighborhood time. In the wake of being denied passage, the man was seen taking out a blade and cutting his own throat. He kicked the bucket a couple of yards from the outskirt with Pharr, Texas, on the Mexican side.

Authorities from U.S. Customs and Border Protection didn't quickly react to a nightfall email from Fox News. The Reuters report said it was vague why the man executed himself.

The U.S. moved forcefully over the previous year to diminish the quantity of refuge searchers landing at its southwest fringe through a progression of measures planned for making it a less alluring alternative.

Lately, direction was allegedly sent to U.S. refuge authorities that said Mexicans would now be remembered for the supposed "Stay in Mexico" program that sent non-Mexican haven searchers back to Mexico to anticipate their shelter cases.

The Tamaulipas lawyer general's office said it was examining the man's demise, Storify News detailed.
