Trailer packed with 90 undocumented immigrants found in Texas

New York Daily News

Dozens of undocumented immigrants were found packed in a trailer along a Texas highway near the Mexico border late Tuesday, according to authorities.

State police stopped the truck near the border town of Raymondville at around 10 p.m., officials said.

Inside, police found a stash of 90 people, two of whom were rushed to a local hospital, according to Willacy County Emergency Management Coordinator Frank Torres said.

Ninety undocumented immigrants were found inside of the tractor trailer on Highway 77 near Raymondville, Texas.

Eighty-six passengers were treated on scene, mostly for heat exhaustion and dehydration, Torres told reporters.

The driver and a passenger in the cab were questioned by police, he added. It was not immediately clear if there were arrests.

Video of the scene shows local law enforcement investigating the truck parked along Highway 77, about 30 miles north of the border to Mexico.

Border Patrol officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Last year, more than 100 people were found in a broiling trailer near San Antonio. Ten of them died.

  1. There’s no need to make a federal case out of this. As long as you have them all in a trailer, drive them to the other side of the border and dump ’em out over there, dead or alive.

    Let Mexico deal with their invaders. We don’t owe them medical help.

    The end result will be that they’re all treated in hospitals at your expense so they can take your job and rape your kids.
