Dozens more taken to San Antonio area hospitals
 
immigrants

Nine illegal immigrants died in a tractor trailer semi truck in a Wal-Mart parking lot in San Antonio after they were smuggled into the United States.

8 bodies were discovered inside the truck after someone asked a Wal-Mart employee for water around 12:30 am. The employee called 911.

A 9th victim died at a hospital. The cause of death was dehydration and heat stroke.

Police also found 30 people suffering from symptoms of heat heat stroke inside the trailer. They were transported to area hospitals.

Most of the survivors had heart rates of 130 beats per minute when they were assessed at the scene by paramedics.

Police reviewed surveillance video and saw the truck arrive and park in the back of the Wal-Mart parking lot in San Antonio, Texas early Sunday.

Numerous cars were seen arriving and picking up about 100 people from the trailer. The 29 survivors were too weak to walk out of the trailer.

Officials say the victims’ bodies were still hot to the touch when they were found, according to the NY Daily News.

Temperatures outside reached 101 degrees Saturday, which means temperature inside the trailer climbed to 125 degrees in an hour.

"They were very hot to the touch. So these people were in this trailer without any signs of any type of water," Fire Chief Charles Hood told The News. "It was a mass casualty situation for us."

Authorities arrested the driver and charged him with human trafficking.

Some of the victims were from Mexico, and at least two were from Guatemala, according to The News.

The majority of the victims were in their early to late 20s. The two youngest survivors were 15 years old.

    Is this a case of trafficking, or illegally trying to cross the border?

    Meanwhile, what's up with the squirrels gone wild story...?

    Wait I thought the story was about squirrels gone wild.. wtf! But it sounds funny.
    I feel for these peeps but it sounded like border crossing to me. Either way it's sad. Heart goes out to them and their survivors.

  • Represent All Day

    forget the squirrels gone wild story...what's up with Auntie not reporting Magic Johnson's secret daughter??? Did ya'll see the "Dear Dad" fb letter she wrote to him?? . I've always heard about his first child he had back in highschool and how he kept it hush hush, but didn' t really believe it cuz he seems like such a nice guy.
    So Auntie PLEASE investigate & spill the tea for us :)

  • ShelbyMoore

    IDKY these people are killing themselves to get here. Aren't they watching the news? Don't they see there's no "dream" in America and the "American Dream" is actually the "American Nightmare" (especially for blacks)?

  • School Shooter

    I'm getting so sick of the term "human trafficking". These people paid their life savings to a coyote and entered the US illegally. They weren't being held against their will or being forced to work as modern slaves as laborers or prostitutes. The left as with so many other things is trying to change the definition of human trafficking to include all illegal immigration to garner sympathy for their cause.

    My only question in this particular case is, how did a Mexican semi truck full of people get across the border without being searched before entering the US? Makes you wonder how much of this goes on.

    You got that right. This is not the America it used to be. I read a story yesterday that said the fall of America could happen as soon as 2030. "When the dollar is no longer the global reserve currency, the cost of goods in the United States is going to skyrocket.
    We will not be able to travel the world as we do now. We won’t be able to enjoy the standard of living we do now. There will be lots of tensions that are going to occur in the society from what will be a major rewriting of the American social contract. This will not be pleasant. And arguably, I think it’s possible if we look back, we could see Trump’s election and all the problems of the Trump Administration as one manifestation of this imperial decline."

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Sad but here's an idea: stay your ass on your side of the border and then you won't have to risk dying in the sweltering heat of a milk truck.

    This is not gonna move Trump to be sympathetic toward illegal immigrants. If you wanna emigrate, do it legally. And Mexico is not nearly as crime filled and slummy as bleeding heart amnesty supporters claim it is.

    I thought they were apart of a sex trafficking operation

  • Please Stop The Madness

    The ones being smuggled in WELL know the damn risks before climbing into the truck. My sister has babies by a Mexican. He and I have talked about his passage to this great country before. It wasnt pretty by his account. They pay the coyotes (the smugglers) A LOT of money, and then some STILL dont make it.

  • Please Stop The Madness

    Just said this. They paid to die. They knew that they could. hard to feel some kind of way about it in that case. Sad. Yes. But still

    And I feel sorry for them. Slaves. They were coming against their will. Nobody twisted these folks arm, made them go with the coyote/smuggler, stole them from their homelands, and then paid their "catcher" thousands of dollars to bring them here. Sad yes. But it was voluntary.

  • Renee26

    The lengths these people go to in order to sneak into this country!! So sad....there are always casualties in these trips. I'm just shocked that there was no effort by those who were picked up to try and save the remaining people.

  • Renee26

    Yes, many are running from terrible conditions...it's much more than them just wanting to come to the US to take our jobs....but that's what the president has people thinking.

    LMAO....I read it like I was singing the song too

  • klwbaby

    I haven't read all the comments so excuse me if someone asked this already but if they wanted to come over here and knew that they might not make it, is it still considered human trafficking?

    It does if blacks are sympathizing with a group who historically looks down on them. A few years ago, there were many incidents where Mexicans were shooting blacks in California. I know several blacks who were inexplicably targeted by Mexicans in Arizona. However, not all Mexicans are violent racists. I dated an illegal Mexican. He was a decent man and a hard worker.

  • SuperScooper1

    This may sound harsh but who's letting any animal they don't know get that close without kicking it? I kicked the hell out of a dog that got too close to my nephew only to find out it was rabid and on the loose. It was a big risk but it ran up out of nowhere acting aggressively while we were tossing the Frisbee.

    If a squirrel, dog, gopher gets too close I have a size 7M ready for that azz.

    Not funny. But I kinda chuckled. I stay clear from them. Deer, Rabbits, foxes. Out backyard is wild kingdom.

    I'm sure they are calling it a "black squirrel" It's always black. SMDH

    Next they will call squirrel a thug.

  • Nonya Bizness

    I've seen groups in Az that leave water in the desert for people crossing over. There's no way there will ever be enough to go around though.

  • Ruby Taylor

    You can't traffic yourself, so the fact that they came over willingly has nothing to do with the crime committed by the driver. The driver is guilty of trafficking people, willing people, but still a trafficking charge. Poor planning. He did not account for people who may not make it. If they're too weak to leave, he is left with the "evidence" and ends up getting arrested for doing a good deed. If 100 people were able to escape the parking lot because they had a ride or called an uber, some of them should have helped remove the weaker people so the driver is free to free more people. Operational error, they need an operations manager.

  • Nonya Bizness

    I have one that comes to my backyard. I think he's called a Grey Squirrel, but he looks brown to me lol. I bought him a feeder that I put a corn cob on. I've also seen a Pigeon up on the tree eating his corn.

  • Ruby Taylor

    Some of you all are either seriously slow (lacking reading comprehension) or recklessly immature. The comparisons are so off the wall that I wonder how yall manage to walk around unsupervised without hurting yourselves. This has nothing to do with slavery or the transporting of slaves. The fact that these people came willingly to find a better life and slaves were forcefully removed from their homeland means....??? Absolutely nothing. Apples and oranges. Some of you are replying as if the victims wrote the article and are asking for sympathy. Consider who wrote the article and what message they're trying to convey before poppin' off at the mouth with ignorant sh!t.

  • imright

    "The fact that these people came willingly to find a better life and slaves were forcefully removed from their homeland means....??? " it means they signed up for this bullshiit and "we" didnt. ?????its hard to feel sorry for ppl putting their selves in harms way

    OMG a squirrel did that to me too, but instead of running away he hid behind a branch and then peeked out.I'm like you're in my yard I don't have to go anywhere you leave!

    PPA: Every time I see one in the road, I try to go out of my way to run over it.

    Hell, when I see one and try to avoid it it runs the wrong way and ends up being road kill.

    I have been wondering how squirrels and other animals got so stupid because when I was a kid they were faster and knew how to get out of harm's way.

  • NicoleZee

    This story is heartbreaking. All of these people being trafficked across the world. I feel for their families. This is unfathomable. Please be careful where you go, what you do, and who you do things with.

    And I hope these women selling their bodies really take note because many of them will end up being sold to the highest bidder and they will become human trafficking victims. This has to stop. It is not a game, especially overseas, they will kidnap your behind, sell you, and you will never be heard from again. So very sad. Prayers.

  • chris

    Is true tho.there are terrible conditions everywhere should we just let everyone come on over?

  • chris

    Why don't they call them criminals or refugees or illegals like they would us.

  • Soda

    In a slick way they almost called them the n-word, called them immigs.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Trump is holding a press conference with Obamacare victims in the background. None of the "victims" are black. ? I wonder if any of the Obamacare victims are illegal immigrants.

  • NicoleZee

    Yes, it is still human trafficking. I learned in Colombia that this happens every day all the time. A lot of people overseas want to come to the U.S. for work and a better life and they often get scammed into believing they are coming here for legitimate jobs and end up being trafficked where they are sold into prostitution, slavery, etc. The U.S. Embassy in Colombia told me that I was very lucky after getting robbed that I wasn't kidnapped, raped, and then sold to the highest bidder. It's just sad that anyone has to endure being treated so horribly. And you have to be very careful when you travel overseas because that is the perfect opportunity for people to single you out and take advantage of you. So very sad.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Sounds like they were trying to sneak into the country voluntarily. I struggle (not really) with caring about these types of things. I know some people live in this fairy tale land where race is only relevant in certain circumstances. I, however, think differently. America prioritizes their immigrants. There are some that they let stay and others they turn right around in the middle of the ocean and make their azzes go back. Some they grant amnesty and others they turn their back on. We can guess who receives the latter treatment.

    All of these documentaries about human trafficking and nothing about the human trafficking that was going on in America AFTER slavery involving African Americans. I can't.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Child, I'm listening to this bs now and I swear I was thinking the same thing when Pence was up there speaking. These "victims" are probably just paid actors or friends and family. The dude to the right of trump looks like Paul Ryan's lost little brother.

  • Harley

    What is sad is that BROWN people are the only ones who have to wait years for their paperwork to get processed and get denied. While the Chinese are coming here in droves setting up shop! Dump was even going to let that British couple bring their child here for medical treatment. A shame the white people creating these laws ARE NOT native to this land!!!!

  • NicoleZee

    I'm not understanding the references to race. These people were victims of human trafficking. You get a better understanding of this issue if you've ever traveled overseas and spoken with officials there. Human trafficking is a WORLDWIDE problem in many countries. People of various races have been trafficked and then sold. In this instance, it sounds like these victims were coming here, either forcefully or willingly, but they were not about to have a legitimate lifestyle or job. They were probably sold or about to be sold.

    Have you ever seen the movie "Human Trafficking" with Mira Sorvino and Donald Sutherland??? Amazing movie but very hard to watch.

  • MissyJ

    Sure am! They eat the trash and sit there bold too like "Who gon check me boo?". My dog ain't no killa so they aren't even afraid of him like they should be. He'll chase them but they can tell he really not about that life

  • Harley

    We should not but it is unfair to deny brown people and allow other people in easily. Chinese are coming in droves and Europeans and Canadians do not get taken by ICE when their passports expire

  • Harley

    This movie is so heartbreaking and shows what many undocumented people go thru daily! As you can see many are law abiding citizens with more going for them than some citizens!

    EXACTLY!!!!!!!! I've been saying this for years.

  • chris

    Well they should be. If they not black they not for us. Brown, white, yellow, whatever they not claiming you or looking out for you.

  • NicoleZee

    From what I've heard others tell me, it is VERY hard applying for a visa and visiting the U.S if you live in another country and it is even harder trying to get U.S. citizenship. Canada is the same way. Try going through Canadian customs! They are suited up ready for war and they grill you to death even if you are just staying short term, and I wasn't even on a visa! I'm not sure about the U.S., but in Canada they don't even want people coming through that have certain offenses on their criminal record. I say all of that to say that you have to go through the ringer to live in the U.S., short or long term, if you were not born here. I've never heard of it being easy for anyone to live here who's from overseas.

  • MsVAllDay

    LOL it is not trafficking if you knew you were crossing the border and coming into another country illegally. I'm not saying I don't sympathize with people who get taken advantage of, however, when sign up to do illegal shyt, silly shyt happens.

  • MsVAllDay

    Please they were so happy to see their relatives, they picked them up and dipped!!!!!!!

  • Soda
  • NicoleZee

    They might have been coming here illegally and willingly, and of course they know it is illegal to do that, but I don't even want to know where that truck would have ended up had it not been found at Walmart. What I'm saying is that plenty of people try to come over her illegally, but they end up being victims and being sold. It's just sad and very scary to think where the ones that survived could have ended up. Heart wrenching.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    1. References to Race- We do not live life in a vacuum. It is important to analyze current events in historical and SOCIOLOGICAL contexts. Americans have a proclivity of feigning concern for everyone but those of African descent. They also seem to have amnesia when it comes to the atrocities that they have committed against their OWN citizens.

    2. I don't see anything in the write up to suggest they were victims of human trafficking. The USC is very clear on what constitutes human trafficking, involuntary servitude, and sex trafficking. Unless something comes out and suggest that these people either: 1) came over here involuntarily OR, 2) came over here voluntarily and were being FORCED into some sort of labor. This is NOT human trafficking.

    3. There's a lot of conjecture in your write up, a lot of "maybes" and "probably". America did in FACT traffic African Americans like chattel after slavery. Forced them to work in mines, etc. in horrible f.cking conditions. Is that covered in the little documentary.

  • Quitedeliteful

    A friend of mine has a boyfriend that lives in Grenada and he is interested in coming here to visit her because she is always going over there. He does not want to live here and she does not want him to live with her so he would definitely end up going back home because has a job in construction in his country. Yet he cannot get a visa to come here for holiday. No reason is given. He's denied each and every time he applies...

    This just in. Full story on Yahoo ap this was not human trafficking or smuggling. The man says he did not know they were there until he pulled into Walmart and heard banging. One of the passenger s said they paid a coyote 12500pesos or 700 us dollars to get on to the rig. The driver is a black man who insisted he didn't know they were there!

  • Harley

    You have serious issues. And you are stereotyping. No PERSON is taking your job if anything TECHNOLOGY AND ROBOTS are. If you believe Dump and his white boy mafia then so be it... but a college educated black persons job or career is not threatened by an undocumented immigrant. Most do manual labor. There is enough for everyone. They are not the threat. The threat are the immigrants they do allow here who come here specifically to go to school and will take your job. Chinese immigrants are who you should fear as well as white immigrants. And I am not lumping us all together however we people of color (latin and black people) are the ones who are being denied entry or have difficulty with paperwork being processed.

I think it's pretty safe to say Obama wasn't president for 17 years. Then the walking idiot said the best rule of medicine is..... and he trailed off.

    Umm the best rule of medicine you IDIOT is to take your effing medicines!!!!!!!!

    I agree. Get a darn passport and come through the right way.

    I find that VERY had to believe. My hubby owns a trucking co and he is also a long haul trucker (for over 25 years), he even said that don't even sound right, but thats a good one though lol.

    You don't ride around with your trailer unlocked because of pirates on the road that could steal your expensive loads etc. They are bolted down so noone can get in or out of your trailer too. So yeah tell that to someone else lol. The D.O.T. would have been all over that!

    It was empty. He was paid to pick it up for the man who hired him. .People know how to be quiet. He drove according to the reports 150 miles before he took a break at Walmart. He still innocent until proven guilty. Meanwhile let's talk about people doing stuff the right way.

    I can't imagine because I can not stand to be in a hot situation and can't do nothing about it....

    Memo to illegal immigrants:

    Stop paying the coyotes, if they don't rape you AND YOUR YOUNG CHILDREN, they will put you in an unventilated truck.

    Stop paying the smugglers to put you on unseaworthy ships to drown in the Mediterranean.

    The journey is not safe.

    I hate being in an elevator filled neck to neck, shoulder to shoulder with a bunch of warm bodies, knowing we've bypassed the 5,000 lb. elevator limit, noooooo bueno.

  • DynoMight

    Respect to the 9 who died and condolences to the living who bared witness. My God. Wow.

    So sad. What life are they leaving behind to risk losing theirs to MAYBE make a better one here..... here being the home of the brave bullies and land of the ("even if you can pay we will still find a way to spray paint the "N" word on the private gate of your million++ dollar home") free.

    I tell my friends in other countries all the time, all that glitters was likely bought and sold with Ancestral blood. It's not gold and it ain't easy... #Pride #ArethaFranklinVoice

    Strong will to survive, I suppose. #TheStruggleIsReal #WorkingHardEveryday

    But dig this, these people are not asking you for your sympathy so the rude comments aimed at them seems tacky and childish. It's represents you and your small mind when you react that way. People are just reporting the news. They might spin it a certain way but you'll only fall for that if you lack independent/critical thinking skills. While they're laid up, d@mn near dead in a hot a$$ semi truck.. I doubt they are sitting there wondering about social media approval ratings for the stunts they pulled. They're out in the real (2nd & 3rd) world living and struggling. Sh!t is bad where they are from so they are doing whatever they can, even risking their lives, to find a better life. Why compare that to slavery? Two totally different issues. THEN use slavery as an excuse for not being sympathetic when nobody is really asking you to do or be anything. You chose the "tight" response just off GP. It's childish to be so self-centered that you can't acknowledge that although you or your people have been done wrong, that this one isolated situation is ALSO sad.. No need to compare and rate which issue is more important or deserving of sympathy. You don't have a short supply of feelings, you don't have to ration them out so sparingly. One tragedy has nothing to do with the other. Like why does your mind automatically search for something to compare it too instead of just marinating on the subject at hand and giving input on the subject at hand. Never mind, probably still don't get it.. carry on.

    Cheap labor see they don't need to worry about a wall because you can get in others ways. This was done by some greedy lowlife. I know in the nail salons most of them are working to pay off a debt they owe. Some never handle money that give you a slip or send you up to the register to pay. But human trafficking is not even thought off alot by Some. I always think someone missing may hv fallen into that. They buy you & sell you end up in a sex club or working the corner.

  • Alisa

    I don't know but most black dudes would be like " Oh hell nah a black man with some bodies we get pulled over all the time WTF am I going to say when they open the back?? They my cousins?? Nah a brother got to pass"

  • Keesh5000

    I told yall a long time ago they be in the back of them Trucks... Walmart Trucks too...thats why they where in Walmart parking lot. I call for an investigation on illegal immigrants and Walmart (In my Trump voice)

  • Harley

    But its ok for Chinese and Russians and Canadians to get a pass? OK!! Bye bye!

  • Harley

    Naw the majority of people here ARE educated!

    I get that WE get the short end, but that does not take away from the fact that other people are being oppressed as well. I have seen MANY latin Americans walking and fighting with us and for us!

  • Harley

    Where do YOU live?

  • CCW47

    I live in Los Angeles, right in the middle of the mess. I am originally from Jamaica Queens and was traveling back and forth for a while. The reason why I asked you where do you live because people that do NOT live in Los Angeles and do not experience how lawless and backwards it is they always have something positive to say to support the illegal community not say that you did but to say brown people. I am brown and I am black and these people do not consider me any part of their community at all. They are for themselves not for anybody else and if you are black/colored/negro they have no respect for you. I experience it every day and I see and feel the difference. It has changed Los Angeles and it has become very divided here.

  • chris

    Canadians can be black I've known plenty who have come over. They do it legally so what can I say? Do I want non blacks to come, not really but if they do it legally who am I to complain.

  • Harley

    I am not speaking of the melanated ones... but I digress. Have a good day

  • Harley

    I was born and raised in LA and have not had the experiences you have had. I have had positive experiences with Mexicans here ! VERY positive. Some have had my back more than my own people.

  • chris

    You too Harley

  • NicoleZee

    I can understand that. Years ago I had a friend that was living in Cypress I think it was and he kept applying to come here to visit the U.S. He tried to use me and even his uncle in NYC as a reference and he kept being denied, no reason. He was originally from Nigeria. The U.S. is very tough on who they let visit, I mean just a visit! I can understand countries being careful about who they let in, but everyone is not a threat or a criminal. I guess people should be thankful if they were born in the U.S. because travel is somewhat easier until maybe you need a visa for staying in a country for a few months.

  • CCW47

    I am speaking of illegals and these are Mexicans, these are Hispanics from El Salvador and Guatemala and Honduras and this within the last 5 years. I never had any bad experiences until lately and it is getting worse. I have close friends that hare Hispanic but they are Americanized and educated. I moved to Los Angeles at a very young and I spent majority of my life here. My experience and I speak for a lot of blacks that feeling the change because of the illegals are growing in numbers and now they are showing their true colors and their true intent. All I am saying is pay attention, even though you have wonderful experiences. When it comes down to it they are for themselves not for anyone else. I am just saying. I am done with this now.

  • Harley

    I have been down. We obviously have different opinions. I was born and raised here so I am aware of the tension there is between SOME latin people and blacks. Yet that is what happens when you have poorer people fighting for resources. That is what the powers that be WANT to happen so that we cant unite and work towards equality. They are NOT the enemy. Good day!

  • Allihave2say

    How and why do the driver's keep being black men who report not knowing the cargo was human and go to jail for life? The happened before and the driver was black.
