Heartbreaking moment terrified migrant boy, 5, clutching teddy pleads with smugglers after being dumped at Mexico border

HAUNTING video shows the moment a terrified migrant child screams "don't leave" with his smugglers as they brought him across the US-Mexico border.

The five-year-old boy was filmed steps away from a barbed wire wall ended, signifying the line between Ciudad Juárez and El Paso in Texas on Thursday night.

The cellphone video shows the little tot clutching a teddy bear as he screamed "where are you going?"

"No, no, no," he wailed. "Don't leave."

The two smugglers had brought him over the border to where his parents were to meet him on the other side.

The child waved at them as they walked back over a dried section of the Rio Grande, which is often used by migrants on their way to the US.

As they walked away towards Ciudad Juarez, a US Border Patrol unit took the boy to a nearby station. It is currently unclear if the boy was reunited with his family.

One of the smugglers told AFP that the boy's parents lived in the United States.

The incident is just one of thousands the CFB has had to deal with as the nation ahs seen an increased tick in migrant crossings.

The Biden Administration has been criticized for handling the border crisis amid a surge in migrants crossing the border.

His administration has released more than 62,000 immigrants into the US in its first four months, compared to 65 released by the Trump White House in his final four. 

Tens of thousands of people who illegally crossed the US border have been discharged, with some not given a date on which they are to appear in court.
