What a waste of tax-payers dollars. The MEXICANS THAT ARE IDENTIFIED, should make their Family's pay for the identifications. We are being exploited by Mexicans and they are taking too much of our time and money. Once they are ID'd they'll probably sue the U.S. for their death's. We have got to put and end too this exploitation. It's destroying our Cities and States.Those people were taking their chances and their parent's allowed them to die in the desert. Not Americans... Another huge waste of time and resources....

Why do we have to do so much for illegals and foreign countries yet nothing for our own people, Americans, here?

Look at the money Bloomberg is tossing around in the name of gun control. Wouldn't his money be better spent in the area schools or at the local food banks? He's a tool.

As a member of the human race and more specifically the hispanic race, I am glad they are doing something to bring closures to the families of these lost souls. My hopes are that we can also try to find our fellow Americans that are lost in Mexico. God bless our big hearted Americans that know what is morally right and are willing to do whatever it takes, regardless of the cost.

I agree 100% but still don't feel we should pocket the bill. The county spends so much money on themselves and then they want 2 raise our taxses. Life is not fair butdo you see this right for us?

Since all bodies are first taken to a funeral home in Mission, texas , why not sent them back to Mexico instead of bringing them back to FAL. The answer is Mexico won't take them back !!!

Might not be fair, but is morally right and if mission or Mexico don't want to do the right thing why blame the ones who are. Life is short and precious and to not help others in need because of monetary reasons would be selfish. These unknown immigrants and their families need closure. If everyone cared about the value of a life maybe our world would be a better place. Regardless, however, I choose to show kindness and be humble just as God would like us all too.
