Trailer full of undocumented immigrants found near US, Mexico border

At least 17 immigrants found inside a trailer in Texas

Police discovered 17 undocumented immigrants locked inside a tractor trailer in Edinburg, Texas, according to NBC affiliate KVEO. KRGV reports 17 people were inside the trailer at the Flying J in Edinburg.

In the wake of accepting a call from a relative of a person inside the trailer, Edinburg police said they landed on the scene and started thumping on tractor-trailers. He reported that the trailer was getting too hot inside for them, according to reports. A man and a woman were detained in connection with the incident.

The immigrants originated from a range of countries, including Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and Romania, White said. Ten people died of heat exhaustion in the botched human trafficking attempt.


Edinburg police told ABC13 the trailer was "full of people".

"They were harbored in one or more stash locations, and on Sunday, the groups were assembled in the trailer", according to a federal complaint against Bradley, Fox reported at the time.

More than a dozen illegal immigrants were discovered trapped inside a trailer in Texas on Sunday.
