"Ruthless" smugglers dropped two girls, ages 3 and 5, over a 14-foot border wall in New Mexico.
The footage was shared by a patrol agent, who said the little girls were dropped in the desert "miles from the nearest residence," on Tuesday.
In the video, one smuggler can be seen scaling the fence and going just over the top, before dangling the little girls one by one over the side.
Both are then dropped from the 14-foot fence onto what looks like hard ground.
The smugglers then toss something over the fence, presumably the girls' belongings, and head off into the night, leaving the toddlers alone.
El Paso Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gloria Chavez shared the footage on Twitter, noting that she was "appalled by the way these smugglers viciously dropped innocent children from a 14-foot barrier last night."
"If not for the vigilance of our agents using mobile technology, these two tender-aged siblings would have been exposed to the harsh elements of desert environment for hours," she added.
Chavez said her team is working with law enforcement in Mexico to try and identify the smugglers and hold them accountable.
