So, any investigation into who approved letting this trailer through the border?
 
2022-06-27 10:12:13 PM  
That's over 2 1/2 per wheel.

But seriously, good lord imagining what their last hours were like is not a fun mental exercise at all.  Yikes.

The migrants weren't armed so I'm sure there were many more living when the trailer was opened.

It didn't come through the border like that.  The trailer was likely loaded at a secondary or even tertiary staging site.

What happens if they catch the bastard who abandoned his "cargo"? Does he get hit with 40+ manslaughter charges?

"These deaths are on Biden," Abbott tweeted. "They show the deadly consequences of his refusal to enforce the law."

Abbott is a total and utterly soulless scumbag.

He's a Republican, so that's a given. Much like in capitalism as a whole, only the worst scum rises to the top of the GQP.

I was in hospital for a bit, rooming with an immigrant. He had some fungal infection and was out of his mind mostly incoherent.

No insurance, the farm owners were footing the bill.

It's only marginally related. I know that. Take something from this interaction we had.

I suspect that's why they were near railroad tracks... an spot that would be easy to find, even with no map or GPS.  Find the tracks, then follow them 'til you find the site.

Oh, and I saw coverage on last nights news (BBC, I think).  They said they got reports of a dead body, and one was outside, the others were inside.  Including some survivors.

So I suspect that the driver or whoever locked up the truck died (natural causes?  Foul play?), after everyone else was locked inside.

Hmm... the written version of the BBC article specifically says 'abandoned by its driver'.  So maybe the first body wasn't on the outside like I assumed:

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-61961871

(Still weird that the initial report is 'dead body' and not 'dead bodies')
 
2022-06-28 5:28:40 AM  
This happens all the time. The drivers will simply abandon them. They thankfully get heavy charges...one got life in prison. Four others in England have gotten manslaughter charges. You have to be some kind of piece of shiat to just abandon human lives like this.

The truck driver was arrested at a nearby high school, where he was on the football field's 50 yard line praying that Rudy Giuliani wouldn't die from the life-threatening injuries.

This has been going on for decades and they had a similar case during Trump's presidency and Abbott said nothing.

The policies haven't changed that much when it comes to migrant workers from Trump to Biden have they? So why didn't Abbott blame Trump when this happened?

"The official said that federal, state, and local authorities believed that the bodies were those of migrants. Cross-border smuggling and human trafficking have been longstanding problems along the U.S.-Mexico border "

That is how, and its spot on. Being soft on illegal immigration does nothing but encourage human trafficking and smuggling.

Same thing happened in Victoria several years ago.  Trucker loaded up with people but forgot to fill (or too cheap) to fuel the reefer tank.  110 degrees and they all cooked

It's science.  Its Texas.  Finally located the driver in Michigan.  Probably gave him a medal this being Texas.

Idiot laws that treat people like garbage based upon where they came from is why this happens.

I don't get it, why take a load of illegal immigrants and then abandon the truck with them locked inside so they die?  Wouldn't it be easier to and less troublesome to just open the doors and let them out?

How is this not just a psychopath/sociopath committing mass murder?

Its more likely they drove them to a prearranged destination and opened the doors to find most of them dead or dying due to heat and lack of ventilation.

So, too stupid to realise things die when kept inside enclosed spaces out in the sun on a hot day. Yeah, that figures. Never underestimate the stupidity of humans... hope they are jailed for a long time.

The driver already got his money.  Maybe there was a mechanical problem with the truck, maybe he was afraid he'd get caught somewhere with a truckload of people...

I'm speculating but hopefully, the investigation will tell us for sure.
