The Texas Observer has released this report by Investigative Fund reporter John Carlos Frey. "Mass Graves in Texas," explores the tragic reality of border-crossing for migrants who are left behind if injured. Many die on the Texas side of the border and are buried in unmarked mass graves. Their remains are rarely identified, and even more rarely returned to their families. The report contends that the state of Texas has committed rampant violations of the law in failing to handle migrant remains and burials in a timely, humane manner.
