Tragedy in San Antonio as 46 Migrants Are Found Dead Inside Tractor-Trailer

Horrible news out of San Antonio, Texas, Monday night, as reports indicate at least 46 migrants were found dead in the back of a tractor-trailer.

Per Fox News:

Crews were at the 9600 block of Quintana Road where an 18-wheeler containing up to 100 migrants inside was found abandoned, Fox San Antonio reported. The discovery is part of what is believed to be a human smuggling operation.

“This is nothing short of a horrific human tragedy,” San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg said Monday night near the location where the tractor-trailer was found.

Per the reports, none of those found dead were children. However, four children were transported to the hospital, along with a dozen adults.

Federal authorities are investigating the situation. Also per Fox:

All the deceased victims had evidence of heat-related causes of death and the survivors who were transported to the hospital were similarly suffering heat stroke, exhaustion and dehydration, he said.

McManus clarified the tractor-trailer was refrigerated, however, the refrigeration system was not functioning.

He also said there was no drinkable water found inside the trailer.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott didn’t mince words about who he believes bears responsibility:

Unsurprisingly, the Biden administration sees it differently:

The human smugglers apparently haven’t gotten that memo.
