"Stacks Of Bodies": Horror In Texas As 46 Migrants Found Dead In 18-Wheeler

Officials in San Antonio, Texas found 46 bodies in and around an 18-wheeler tractor-trailer, and 16 others were taken to local hospitals in what is presumed to be human trafficking gone wrong.

Shortly before 6pm on Monday a city worker on a remote road heard a cry for help, according to Police Chief Willian McManus. When officers arrived on scene, they found one body on the ground outside the trailer, which was partially open, according to the Associated Press.

The dead range in age from teens to young adults, and are believed to have succumbed to heat stroke and heat exhaustion, as the trailer had no air conditioning and no water as temperatures exceeded 100 degrees.

Of those taken to the hospital 12 were adults and 4 were children – who Fire Chief Charles Hood said were hot to the touch and dehydrated, while no water was found in the trailer.

“They were suffering from heat stroke and exhaustion,” said Hood. “It was a refrigerated tractor-trailer, but there was no visible working AC unit on that rig.”

There were “stacks of bodies” Hood added.

Mayor Ron Nirenberg called the scene “nothing short of a horrific human tragedy.”

Since authorities presume that the trailer was part of a human trafficking operation to bring people into the United States illegally, the Department of Homeland Security’s Investigations unit has taken point on the case.

Authorities took three people into custody.

Big rigs emerged as a popular smuggling method in the early 1990s amid a surge in U.S. border enforcement in San Diego and El Paso, Texas, which were then the busiest corridors for illegal crossings.

Before that, people paid small fees to mom-and-pop operators to get them across a largely unguarded border. As crossing became exponentially more difficult after the 2001 terror attacks in the U.S., migrants were led through more dangerous terrain and paid thousands of dollars more. -AP

DHS officials released the following statement Monday night:

“On June 27, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) responded to a call from San Antonio Police Department (SAPD) in reference to an alleged human smuggling event involving a tractor trailer on Quintana Road near Cassin Road. Upon arrival in the scene, HSI confirmed more than 40 deceased individuals.

HSI San Antonio has initiated an investigation with support of SAPD. Details will be released as they are available, the criminal investigation remains ongoing.

HSI continues its enforcement efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of our communities. We will continue to address the serious public safety threat posed by human smuggling organizations and their reckless disregard for the health and safety of those smuggled. To report suspicious activity, we encourage people to call the HSI Tip Line at 1-866-DHS-2ICE. All calls are kept confidential.”

The terrorist cockroach Putin is at it again. He personally ordered the cartels to kill all those Hispanics to make the USA look like a massive shithole. Only a total moron would believe that more civilians died in the back of a tractor trailer in one day in the USA than Ukrainian civilians in an entire week. You Putinistas are done for when Russia runs out of smart missiles and tanks… any day now…

Nice satire. Just enough clues so the audience can get in on the joke, but not so many that the reader is hit over the head with them.

I finally got perma-banned by the two zionist jew fags who run The Gateway Pundit zionist rightwing gatekeeper site for pointing out that it is the zionist jews who are the ones who don’t want Ukrainians thinking about the Holomodor and not the Russians.

The truth burns zionist jews like acid.

This sadly proves the point that the utterly incompetent and corrupt Biden regime has so abandoned USA border security that every desperate person who wants to can easily enter from Mexico. Biden/Harris are responsible for this.

Numerous critics of the Biden administration have pointed out that the number of illegal immigrants entering the United States since Biden assumed office in January 2021 has reached record high and well exceeds 2 million. (Sputnik)

Governor Greg Abbott of Texas:

Gov. Greg Abbott “These deaths are on Biden. They are a result of his deadly open border policies. They show the deadly consequences of his refusal to enforce the law,” the governor wrote on Twitter before local officials briefed the media with details.
