At least 46 people believed to be migrants were found dead inside and near an abandoned tractor-trailer near San Antonio, Texas, on Monday, a tragedy that appears to be related to attempts to smuggle people across the border from Mexico.
16 people, including four children, were found alive at the scene and are now being treated for heat stroke, exhaustion and dehydration.
The trailer was first discovered by a person working in a nearby building after they responded to a cry for help and found the trailer's doors partially open.
San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood said that the vehicle had no air conditioning and no water.
Texas is in the middle of a heat wave and the temperature in San Antonio reached a high of 103 degrees on Monday.
The driver who abandoned the trailer is believed to be one of the three suspects, but the police are unsure if they are related to the case.
The police chief said that the Department of Homeland Security's investigative arm is looking into the tragedy.
Immigration should always be treated as a humanitarian crisis, but this evening we are facing a terrible tragedy. More than 40 people were killed. I want you to think compassionately and pray for the dead, the sick, and their families. The Mayor of San Antonio, Ron Nirenberg, sent a message.
Abbott blamed the Biden administration for the deaths. His policies caused them. The consequences of his refusal to obey the law were shown. Abbott has accused the White House of opening the border as it has tried to end a policy that allowed border officials to quickly expel immigrants and asylum seekers.
One of the worst tragedies in the U.S. is linked to the transportation of migrants. Ten migrants died from heatstroke in a tractor-trailer that was parked in San Antonio. James Bradley Jr., the driver of that truck, was sentenced to life in prison for his role in the illegal transportation of immigrants. Nineteen people lost their lives in 2003 when they were trapped inside a trailer that had been abandoned. 54 people were injured after a truck carrying migrants crashed and rolled over in Mexico last year. The migrants were from Central America.
