至少 46 bodies found in trailer, San Antonio officials say

Four people, including alleged truck driver Homero Zamarano Jr, have been charged in connection to the San Antonio migrant deaths, the Justice Department announced 在星期三.

The 45-year-old is charged with one count of alien smuggling resulting in death. He is from Brownsville but based in Pasadena, 德克萨斯州, 据官员称. He could face up to life in prison or the death penalty.

Three others were charged as well, including Christian Martinez, who allegedly discussed the smuggling plan in a call with Mr Zamarano, and Mexican nationals Juan Claudio and Juan Francisco D’Luna Mendez, who were found because their address was used to register the tractor-trailer that smuggled the migrants.

至少 53 people were discovered dead, “stacked” inside the truck’s tractor-trailer near San Antonio, 德克萨斯州, in what authorities believe may be the deadliest human-trafficking incident in modern US history.

总统 乔拜登 called the “tragic loss of life” in Texas “horrifying and heartbreaking” while San Antonio’s mayor Ron Nirenberg called it a “horrific human tragedy”.

Two more people charged in San Antonio smuggling operation

The suspected driver of a truck packed with dozens of migrants who died in sweltering heat during a smuggling attempt in Texas and an accused conspirator were charged in US federal court on Wednesday with human trafficking offences.

San Antonio migrant deaths lead to slow effort to ID victims

Victims have been found with no identification documents at all and in one case a stolen ID. Remote villages lack phone service to reach family members and determine the whereabouts of missing migrants. Fingerprint data has to be shared and matched by different governments.

Two days after the discovery of 51 dead migrants in a stifling trailer in San Antonio, few identities of the victims have been made public, illustrating the challenges authorities face in tracing people who cross borders clandestinely.

Explainer: Heat, humidity a perilous mix in immigrant deaths

The combination of heat and humidity would have quickly created life-threatening conditions inside the packed, un-airconditioned tractor-trailer where dozens of immigrants were found dead, an expert said.

Although it’s unclear how long the people had been inside the trailer, it likely would only take an hour or less for temperatures to climb as high as 125F (51C) or hotter, said Jennifer Vanos, an assistant professor in climate and health at Arizona State University who has studied child deaths in cars.

The death toll rose to 53 在星期三, two days after the tractor-trailer — packed with 67 people — was found abandoned on the edge of San Antonio, marking the nation’s deadliest smuggling episode on the US-Mexico border.

Here’s what made the situation so dangerously wrong:

During an interview with NPR on Wednesday, the Democrat fielded questions from co-host Asma Khalid about the overturning of 罗诉韦德案 before the pair turned to discussing matters south of the border.

“I’m sure you saw that, 昨晚, there were at least 50 migrants who died in a tractor trailer in San Antonio, 德克萨斯州,” Ms Khalid began. “I wanted to get a sense from you of – are there any new plans that you have for tackling the issue through administrative powers – through executive actionsthat you all think you can’t do?”

What we know about the victims of the San Antonio smuggling tragedy

The two cousins returned to the tiny, hardscrabble hamlet they grew up in in southern Mexico about two weeks ago to say goodbye in what has become a right of passage for generations of migrants from their remote, impoverished mountainous region in Oaxaca state.

It would not be the first trip to the U.S.-Mexico border for Javier Flores López, now in his mid-30s, who had left Cerro Verde years ago and went to 俄亥俄州, where his father and a brother live and he worked in construction.

He was back home to see his wife and three small children briefly, said a cousin, Francisco López Hernández. This time he was returning to the 美国 with another cousin, José Luis Vásquez Guzmán, 32, who was going for the first time and hoped to join his oldest brother who was in Ohio as well.

While everyone knew the risks, countless people from Cerro Verde had made it safely across the U.S.-Mexico border with the help of smugglers, so it came as a shock, López Hernández said, to learn his cousins and dozens of other migrants were abandoned inside a tractor-trailer sweltering under the 德克萨斯州 sun.

Among the tragedy, a case of mistaken identity

A woman whose ID was stolen was wrongly named as one of the survivors of the San Antonio trailer tragedy in which 51 people lost their lives.

Haneydi Jazmin Antonio Guzmán informed friends and family that she was “fine by the grace of God” on her Facebook page.

“Do not believe anything, this is a lie, that credential [her voter ID], it was stolen a year ago,” she said after media reports named her as one of the survivors of the trailer tragedy.

Ms Antonio Guzmán, from Escuintla in Guatemala, said she was not the person who was hospitalised and clarified that her ID – found on one person in the trailer tragedy – was stolen from her a year ago.

San Antonio funeral home assisting victims of smuggling catastrophe

A funeral home in San Antonio is stepping in to assist those who lost loved ones in Monday’s horrific incidence of human smuggling.

The Compean Funeral Home is working to help return bodies of those lost in caskets so their families can give them proper burials.

“This is only the beginning, I can tell you this. This is going to be a marathon. This is not going to be a sprint,” owner Gregory Compean told Click2Houston. “Anytime human remains are shipped out of the country, those remains have to be properly embalmed within all the rules and regulations in the state of Texas to be accepted by that other country.”

The funeral home owner said he assisted with a similar process in 2003, 什么时候 19 migrants died in a smuggling accident.
