Illegal Immigrant Rescues Boy in Desert

This illegal entrant was almost at his destination south of Tucson and saved the life of a little boy. He was immediately taken back across the border. He said he thought of his own children and would want someone to do the same for his child. A true Good Samaritan. DP

ap.google.com: PHOENIX (AP) — A 9-year-old boy looking for help after his mother crashed their van in the southern Arizona desert was rescued by a man entering the U.S. illegally, who stayed with him until help arrived the next day, an official said.

The 45-year-old woman, who eventually died while awaiting help, had been driving on a U.S. Forest Service road in a remote area just north of the Mexican border when she lost control of her van on a curve on Thanksgiving, Santa Cruz County Sheriff Tony Estrada said.

The van vaulted into a canyon and landed 300 feet from the road, he said. The woman, from Rimrock, north of Phoenix, survived the impact but was pinned inside, Estrada said.

Her son, unhurt but disoriented, crawled out to get help and was found about two hours later by Jesus Manuel Cordova, 26, of Magdalena de Kino in the northern Mexican state of Sonora. Unable to pull the mother out, he comforted the boy while they waited for help.

The woman died a short time later.

"He stayed with him, told him that everything was going to be all right," Estrada said.

As temperatures dropped, he gave him a jacket, built a bonfire and stayed with him until about 8 a.m. Friday, when hunters passed by and called authorities, Estrada said. The boy was flown to University Medical Center in Tucson as a precaution but appeared unhurt.

Donna - you are confusing LEGAL immigrants with ILLEGAL immigrants. This country has been enhanced by the influx of LEGAL immigrants. It has been damaged by the influx of millions of ILLEGAL ALIENS. The two are not both immigrants. IMMIGRANTS follow the legal procedure to become an American citizen. ILLEGAL ALIENS are TAKERS by nature - they feel they have a right to our American dollars and we somehow need them cleaning our toilets and picking our vegetables. THIS IS A MYTH. Big business needs them because they don't PAY THEM the same as Americans. That is all there is to it. The myth of "needing" illegal aliens is perpetuated by big business and our current government kisses the ASS of big business - citizens be damned. They don't care that we have our cities and towns overrun with third world "migrants" who don't want to assimilate or become citizens. They just want to take our American dollars, our American jobs and our American social services .. oh yeah and our free American education.

You need to wake up and smell the coffee Donna.

This guy Cordova also did not SAVE Christopher. This is a total distortion. Christopher was not in any imminent danger of dying. He could have gone to the campground where he had been with his mother. Now granted, he was traumatized and he was only 9, but Cordova could have also led him back to the border - a two hour walk. Instead he sat with him next to a fire for 14 hours.. from 3pm till 8am. How was that saving him? He was a nice guy I will give you that much. But he did not SAVE him.

The liberal media is trumpeting this guy as a hero to try to offset the plethora of negative news that has accumulated about what damage illegal aliens are doing to citizens in the way of drunk driving, raping and even murder. The story is not based on facts. It is the truth distorted to make a nice story. And you bought it exactly as they intended you to.

Try not to just accept what you read as the truth - especially when it comes to the current mainstream news organizations.

Oh.. and your little blog title says "we need immigrants here" blah blah blah. Well did you know that we admit LEGALLY more immigrants to this country THAN ALL OF THE OTHER COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD COMBINED? That's around 2 MILLION LEGAL IMMIGRANTS. I'd say we are pretty darn nice to immigrants. And those are the LEGAL ones. The true amount of ILLEGAL ALIENS is now said to be closer to 40 MILLION people. THOUSANDS per day streaming over our southern border and we DON'T KNOW WHO THEY ARE.

We don't need to be ANY NICER to immigrants than WE ARE ALREADY. This country is a MELTING POT and it's time we made it more of a STEW with the same flavor. DIVERSITY = DEATH for a nation. Just ask France and Britain...

Oh.. and also.. I don't see countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Syria, Sudan etc - embracing "diversity". Why don't you try complaining to them about their lack of "diversity"? And why don't you check and see how Mexico treats their illegal aliens. Illegal aliens who come to the US have it WAY better than they do in Mexico.

Sad to read the typical narrow minded comments from both 'Aion' and 'Ruthiness'. The scope of the undocumented immigration is far greater than the events noted with the good samaritan story. Its solution needs to be as grand as well, and not an easy one at that.

Deport them all?, Diversity=Death?... a self serving selfish and arrogant point of view, the kind of 'thing' that prevents problems from getting solved.
