Officials say a woman was found dead following a fall from the U.S.-Mexico border wall in Otay Mesa, California Friday.
Police say the woman successfully scaled a 17-foot tall wall before falling from a secondary one and falling 30 feet to her death.
The Mexican Consulate claims fatal and significant injuries since the 30-foot border wall was erected are up 162 percent in the last three years.
“They anticipated, I believe, that border falls would occur, and that that would be a deterrent, and we don’t see that actually happening,” Rios said.

Border Patrol agents in San Diego have been releasing hundreds of illegal immigrants onto city streets as it struggles to deal with a surge of migrants into the area – just after similar releases had started in Arizona.
