More people unfortunately who feel sneaking into the US is worth putting their lives in the hands of ruthless human traffickers..and dying in the most horrible ways because of it is not unheard of.


San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg referred to it as a “horrific human tragedy.”

In an area on Quintana Road in southwest San Antonio, 46 migrants were found dead Monday inside the trailer of an 18-wheeler and 16 others were taken to hospitals. Of the 16, four were teenagers, officials said.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said three people are in police custody in connection with the deaths, but he’s still not sure exactly how they’re connected, he said. He said a call came in at 5:50 p.m. that a worker nearby heard cries for help and saw the doors to the trailer partially open. The worker then opened the door and “found deceased individuals inside.”

McManus said it was the “largest death toll due to human smuggling San Antonio has ever seen.”

Charles Hood, San Antonio Fire Department chief, said none of the 16 found alive were able to get themselves out of the trailer — they all had to be helped out. He also said there were “no signs of water in the truck.”

“The patients were hot to the touch. Suffering from heatstroke, heat exhaustion,” he said. “They were too weak to get themselves out of the truck.”

Hood also said he had “no idea” how long the migrants were in the trailer. All 46 people found dead were adults, he said. It was a “mix of males and females,” he said.

McManus said police is “not confident” that everyone in the 18-wheeler was accounted for. He said dogs were searching wooded areas around where the 18-wheeler was found and that search will resume Tuesday morning. He said he didn’t know where the truck was coming from or what nationality the people were.

Ah the usual trolls from the usual places.

another day, another human rights violation.

You mean another day another country in this world has people so desperate to leave they are willing to risk their lives in trying to get smuggled into the US.


do you not think America has obligation to ensure their safe crossing?

What do you mean safe crossing? They are basically jumping the border fence illegally.

We have found desperate dead people from China in backs of car/trucks too.

Second Man Charged in Deaths of Smuggled Chinese Migrants​


Saad Ali Awan, a U.S. citizen living in El Centro, appeared in federal court today to face charges that he was part of a conspiracy to illegally transport three Chinese nationals into the U.S. from Mexico who were later found dead in the trunk of a smuggler’s BMW.

According to a federal complaint unsealed today, Awan placed help-wanted ads on Craigslist to recruit human smugglers. Neil Edwin Valera responded to one of those ads and as a result became the smuggler of the Chinese nationals who perished due to heat and asphyxiation in the trunk.



At least these other Chinese nationals survived their trunk ordeal

How come you never hear about 10's of thousands of US Nationals trying to smuggle themselves into China in the trunks of cars/trucks?

Maybe sometime on Opposite Day..

Second Man Charged in Deaths of Smuggled Chinese Migrants​

San Diego police officers discovered a 1999 silver BMW with a Texas license plate. The officers lifted the trunk and found what initially appeared to be two deceased Asian females. Homicide detectives found an additional victim, an Asian male, pressed up against the rear wall of the trunk. A witness said the car was first noticed two days earlier and no one was seen coming or going.
we've had it much worse in the 1990s, there is no denying. the trend has substantially slowed down over the years tho, or it may even be stopped soon, now that more and more people have realized that America has become such a shit place to live.

Ok so in the 1990's your country was a complete failure...now it is only a failure.

now that more and more people have realized that America has become such a shit place to live.

Make sure you alert us when 1000's of US Nationals start showing up in trunks trying to get into China and then you may a legitimate comparison...until then you are still the sh*t one not us.

True that.. we always admired you guys.. like guns and drugs and everything

In the last 20 years (ie not the "complete failure" China of the 1990's..this is AFTER that during just the simple "failure" years of 2000+) 630,000 Chinese citizens fled to the US to gain citizenship. They basically flushed their Chinese citizenship down the toilet.

This is not a tiny number. It will fill up your 2022 Beijing Olympic National (Nest) stadium almost 8 times with those people.

Look at this picture to get a grasp of the scale. That's alot of Chinese people dumping their citizenship..it is truly a national disgrace..and this pic represents just a small small small slice of the 630,000 total.

Who has the sh*t country again?

China should learn from this WHEN, not if, the Middle Kondom begins to decline because of lack of workers and you need all those imported young Asians and Russians to care for your elders.

..and they are basically getting the same treatment that Japanese immigrants got in the 1940s. 630,000 sounds like a lot of work for the CIA


so what's wrong about saying America has become a shit place to live for Chinese immigrants?

Well I guess our shit is a lot less than yours because there isn't a flood of Chinese trying to go back. I don't see a line a mile long at the Chinese embassy in Washington with thousands of Chinese-Americans with placards that say "We f*cked up...please please let us back in...give us our Chinese citizenship back".

Meanwhile the Chinese people in line to get US citizenship isn't down to zero that's for sure.

lol, usa dont even require Chinese to give up their citizenship to be given usa one.
That's how cheaply ur rulers are giving usa citizenship to Chinese.
The Chinese could be on the next flight back to China after getting their free usa citizenship.

If US citizenship is so 'cheap' as you implied, then why bother getting them if there are no benefits, tangible and intangible, to getting them? But if there are benefits...
