Canadian authorities found six dead bodies along the border with New York, according to a statement posted Thursday to Facebook.
The Akwesasne Mohawk Police said the identities of the bodies are unknown and the causes of death have yet to be determined, according to the Facebook post. The area has seen an uptick in illegal immigration, with U.S. Border Patrol recently recording an 846% in apprehensions in the Swanton sector, which covers parts of New York, Vermont and New Hampshire.
Akwesasne has seen freezing temperatures in recent days, according to AccuWeather.
In February, Swanton Sector Chief Patrol Agent Robert N. Garcia said in a statement, “As we progress deeper into winter and continue to address the ongoing pace of illicit cross-border traffic, the level of concern for the lives and welfare of our Border Patrol Agents and those we are encountering – particularly vulnerable populations – continues to climb. It cannot be stressed enough: not only is it unlawful to circumvent legal means of entry into the United States, but it is extremely dangerous, particularly in adverse weather conditions, which our Swanton Sector has in incredible abundance.”
Akwesasne Mohawk Police wrote on Thursday, “UNIDENTIFIED BODIES FOUND IN SNYE. The Akwesasne Mohawk Police are investigating after the bodies of six (6) deceased individuals were located during an air search this afternoon with assistance from the Canadian Coast Guard. The first body was located around 5:00 P.M. in a marsh area in Tsi Snaihne (Snye) Akwesasne, Quebec.The Akwesasne Mohawk Police Marine unit continued to search the area with assistance from the Coast Guard and the Hogansburg Akwesasne Volunteer Fire Department. The Akwesasne Mohawk Police will seek assistance from the Sûreté du Québec and the Ontario Provincial Police air support units to assist with the investigation. Police will be waiting on the results of a post-mortem and toxicology tests to determine the cause of death. Police are attempting to identify the deceased persons at this time and ascertain their status in Canada. There is no threat to the public at this time.

Garcia tweeted in February, “Record breaking JAN: Despite area temps reaching -4, our #BorderPatrol Agents apprehended 367 subjects in January—MORE than 12 preceding years of January totals COMBINED! For the period OCT-JAN, encounters rose 846% against the same prior-year timeframe.”
