FALFURRIAS, TX - FEBRUARY 26: Brooks County Judge Raul Ramirez stands over the graves of unidentified migrant remains buried in the county's cemetery in Falfurrias, Texas, on Tuesday, February 26, 2013.
The remains of 127 immigrants were discovered in Brooks County, nearly 60 miles north of the Mexican border with Texas, in 2012. Judge M. Ramirez says that the county has run out of room to bury future unidentified remains which also places an even tighter strain on the already stressed county budget. Should the rising trend of migrant death continue the county will be forced to acquire more land for a new cemetery.
