Immigration Reality - U.S.-Bound Migrants Found in Trucks in Southern Mexico

U.S.-Bound Migrants Found in Trucks in Mexico - "TUXTLA GUTIÉRREZ, Mexico (AP) — The police in Chiapas State in southern Mexico found 513 migrants (from Central America) on Tuesday inside two trailer trucks bound for the United States, in what the authorities said were dangerously crowded conditions.

Some of the migrants had dehydration after traveling for hours clinging to cargo nets inside the containers to remain upright as the trucks bounced along from the Guatemalan border.

The trucks had air holes punched in the floors, but migrants interviewed at the state prosecutors’ office said they had lacked air and water."
