At least four people were killed when a cargo train nicknamed "La Bestia", or The Beast, on which would-be migrants hitch rides toward the U.S. border, derailed in a remote area of southern Mexico on Sunday, emergency services said.

Hopefully, the DNC will be able to obtain the names of the four deceased "migrants" from Reuters so they can register them to vote.

the contortions the media goes through to curry favor with politicians is laughable. If they are not illegally entering the country then what exactly are they doing? How does any other word fit them?

At least they didn’t call them “commuters.”

The “Beast”? Wouldn't it be more fitting to call that train “The Parasite”?
