Posted on 07/23/2017 4:28:16 PM PDT by ptsal
At least nine people died after being crammed into a sweltering tractor-trailer found parked outside a Walmart in the midsummer Texas heat, authorities said Sunday in what they described as an immigrant-smuggling attempt gone wrong.
Thirty-nine were inside when rescuers arrived, and the rest were believed to have escaped or hitched rides to their next destination, officials said.
Some of the survivors told authorities they were from Mexico, Homan said.
[SNIP]...investigators were still gathering evidence from the tractor-trailer, which had an Iowa license plate and was registered to Pyle Transportation Inc. of Schaller, Iowa.

The photo shows a reefer van that has air conditioning, but it was apparently not being used.
There has to be a long chain of third-parties involved in this crime.
I hope they will be quickly deported.
Dunno if the truck plates mean anything, but Iowa has a lot of meat/poultry processing plants. As do AR and MO on the way.
If this Yanqui had died while illegally entering Mexico I can easily imagine of flood of Mexican tears being shed on having learned my fate.
The driver is American. Probably owns the truck and working as a contractor. He will be held for murder charges and will work a deal and turn in the SOBs who hired him. I want to see DOJ throw the book at them very publically
They SUFFER coming here, so now we OWE it to them to take them.
I get it.
wetbacks would’ve been alive if the WALL was built.
That’ll be great. And the driver may or may not know who was in the cars waiting there at Walmart & drove away with the survivors. Somebody knows. Maybe they can get some of them through surveillance cameras.
Mi pequeño violín tiene una cadena rota
They’ve been trying convince us that the illegal alien inundation from Mexico is over and that there is no need for a wall..........
an immigrant-smuggling attempt gone wrong.
why would immigrants need to be smuggled into the United States ???
Why don’t they just but a ticket and fly much more cooler and cheaper
plane ticket less than $800 coyote $800+ and maybe death
an illegal alien-smuggling attempt is ALWAYS wrong

This is Mexico’s fault. As I’ve said here many times if Mexicans would put just half the energy into fixing their country that they do into destroying ours then maybe someday Mexico will be a place Mexicans don’t have to run away from.
Equalmente amigo! Que lastima. NO!!
Nine dead bodies to send back, plus the live ones. Illegal is illegal and back they must go.
James Mathew Bradley Jr., 60, of Clearwater Fl was arrested? They won’t say if he was the driver?
If anyone finds out who the rest of these people involved are, ping me.
No picture of the driver? No mug shot of Bradley Jr.? Seems a bit odd. Everyone wants to see what a criminal traitor looks like.
Not to mention mass murderers.
