Police X Ray Equipment Showed 94 Illegal Immigrants Trying to Infiltrate the United States

It’s hard to look into the face of illegal immigrants who are literally suffering to get into the United States.

Police X Ray Equipment Showed 94 Illegal Immigrants Trying to Infiltrate the United StatesTraveling through Mexico in the back of a truck, some with severe asphyxiation, others with hand and leg injuries and all struggling to breathe from the cramped space they occupied, a total of 94 people were discovered by police X-Ray equipment at a checkpoint in La Pochota, Mexico on Tuesday, July 23.

“It’s a long journey, and they intended to travel to the United States like that, literally hidden,” said Hector Flores, a spokesman for the Chiapas state prosecutor’s office.

Among the illegal immigrants were 19 from the Indian subcontinent, 10 Nepalese and 9 Bangladeshis while the others were from Central America: Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.

The driver of the vehicle, who took between $4,000 and $5,000 from each Central American and between $6,000 and $8,000 from each Asian migrant for a trip to American soil, was arrested and charged with human trafficking.

All 94 illegal immigrants, 7 of which are minors, will more than likely face deportation proceedings.
