(KVEO) Hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants cross through Brooks County, Texas every year. The truth, only about a tenth of them are ever caught.

These undocumented men, women and even children are muled across the rugged, brush lands every single day.

"We don't know why. Brooks county for some reason is a funneling point, where everybody seems to be coming through," said Inv. Daniel Davila, Brooks County Sheriff's Department.

The goal of these immigrants is to get through the county unseen and undetected by U.S.. Border Patrol, County Constables, Brooks County Sheriff's deputies, and Falfurrias police. But in the past year, the most tragic issue comes from those who don't make it through.

"This year alone, this past year in 2012, 129 deaths, bodies that were recovered in the brush," said Davila.
