BORDER HORROR:  50 Migrants Dead in Texas Tractor Trailer

For as much as the Democrats like to harp on the alleged cruelty that we see at the border, they sure are perpetuating the horror show.

Nobody wants to talk about it, but the fact of the matter is that illegal border crossings aren’t unfavorable only for their eventual impact on the USA, but they are also incredibly dangerous and exploitative for those who would otherwise be on a path to American citizenship.

This week provided us with yet another example of why America should be doing more to entice migrants to enter the country legally.

At least 50 migrants were found dead in the back of a tractor trailer in San Antonio on Monday, federal law enforcement officials confirmed to CBS News on Tuesday. Sixteen others — 12 adults and four children — were taken to local hospitals with heat-related injuries.

The federal officials confirmed to CBS News Homeland Security and Justice reporter Nicole Sganga this appears to be the deadliest human smuggling case in modern U.S. history.

On Tuesday morning, Mexican Foreign Relations Secretary Marcelo Ebrard said on Twitter, citing U.S. authorities, that the victims included 22 Mexicans, 7 Guatemalans and two Hondurans. Investigators are still determining the nationalities of those who died or were hospitalized, Sganga reports.

Illegal border crossings have predictably increased under the Biden administration, as “border czar” Kamala Harris continues to provide a lackadaisical response to the crisis.
