Shocking Video Reveals Migrants Filing Out of Trailer in Texas
A shocking video was released today from KENS5 TV on Youtube in which migrants who were found to be dehydrated and covered in sweat were filmed filing out of the back of a trailer truck in Pearsall, Texas in Frio County.
Frio County is roughly three hours away from Victoria County.
Many of us still remember the tragic story where migrants were found to have been suffocating and dying inside an abandoned trailer on Victoria's Highway 77. That story is considered to be one of the worst illegal immigrant tragedies in the United States.
The video gives us a glimpse not just at the number of possible migrants who are being coerced into or are desperate enough to travel across the border, literally by being crammed into a trailer, but also some insight into what they must endure stuffed inside of transports without basic comforts, for an opportunity to relocate into Texas.
Gov. Abbott is said to have called stories like these a "humanitarian crisis at the southern border."
The video was obtained when a passerby living in Frio County noticed there was a human hand sticking out of the back of the trailer and they had the foresight to start filming while calling authorities.
According to the news report, which you can read in detail here, 65 migrants along with the driver, who tried to flee and then blend in with the crowd of migrants exiting the trailer, were arrested.
Stories like these continue to flood news sources throughout Texas and the nation with KSAT 12 offering that just a few hours ago, San Antonio reportedly is working on the details to make Freeman Coliseum as an overflow site for migrant minors. There are an estimated 11,000 migrant minors in border control facilities with KXAN reporting that 3,000 migrant teenage boys arrived on Wednesday at the Dallas Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.
