That happens at least once a year around here.

Last abandoned trailer, had 15 dead of the 44 inside.

I hope to God that the driver along with the parents of that kid was picked up and charged with murder.

Anti illegal immigration I may be; I simply want those idiots to return home peacefully--------and, stay there.

A lot of the times the "polleros" dont tell you how you will get there. They just tell you to meet at a certain spot. They dont like giving info. out and when you are there, its too late to go back. This parent probably didnt know that they would be getting into a refrigerated trailer.

Its sad but a lot of "coyotes", those that help them get here, can be very abusive toward illegal immigrants.

This time of year with the temperatures as high as they've been, at least going with a refrigerated trailer was a better choice.

Not all illegals risk their children's lives to sneak them over the border. I respect the ones who don't do this kind of thing with their children than the ones that do. I know some illegals won't put their children through this no matter what.
