At least 11 children were found hungry in New Mexico, the United States (US) lived in very apprehensive conditions, without food and drink. Two men arrested at the camp have a large stock of firearms.
“The only food we saw was a few potatoes and a box of rice in a dirty trailer,” he said.
Hogrefe said that the children found looked like ‘refugees from the third world’ without food, without clean water and barefoot. “Basically using dirty cloth (as clothes),” he added.
“We provide the water and snacks that we have to the children – really the conditions of life and sad poverty that I see,” said Hogrefe. The children were evacuated from the filthy camp and taken to the New Mexico Department of Children, Youth and Families.
Local authorities found the children with three women who were believed to be their mothers. The three women were identified as Hujrah Wahhaj (38), Subhannah Wahhaj (35) and Jany Leveille (35). All three were arrested and charged with 11 counts of child abuse.
But the most dangerous were the two men who refused to be secured in the camp. Both men are known to have a large stock of firearms.
“Armed with an AR15 rifle, five full magazines filled with 30 bullets and four full pistols filled with bullets, including one in his pocket when he was secured,” the Taos County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
“More ammunition bullets were found inside an emergency camp consisting of a small trailer buried in plastic covered land, without water, water or electricity pipes,” the statement added.
The two men who were also arrested were identified as Lucas Morten and Siraj Wahhaj. Both of them were charged with 11 counts of child abuse.
Wahhaj’s figure is also known to have been involved in the case of the disappearance of a 3-year-old toddler named Abdul Ghani Wahhaj. Wahhaj is the father of Abdul’s toddler who has been missing since the last 8 months. The findings of 11 starving children in New Mexico began with the search for US authorities against Abdul’s toddler. But the presence of toddler Abdul is still unknown. When local authorities found 11 hungry children in the dirty camp, Abdul was not there.
