Mass Migrant Casualties After Truck Crashes on Way to Border

The race to the border has turned deadly as 55 people died after a truck carrying them to the border crashed.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

A tractor-trailer smuggling more than 200 migrants headed to the United States crashed into a pedestrian bridge in southern Mexico on Thursday, injuring at least 50 and killing 55, according to the Associated Press.

Most of the migrants were Guatemalan or Honduran. Authorities said migrants from Ecuador, the Dominican Republic, and Mexico were on board as well. Some who survived fled to avoid arrest. Others who remained said they were headed to the United States and boarded the truck just over the Guatemalan border, paying between $2,500 and $3,500 for safe passage to Puebla. From there, it was assumed they would pay another smuggler for a ride to the U.S. border.

Illegal border crossings into the United States hit an all-time high in 2021, with more than 1.7 million migrant arrests on the southern border. From 2013 to 2019, border arrests averaged about 540,000 annually.

The migrants who have flooded the southern border during President Joe Biden’s first year in office have expressed confidence the United States would accept them. During his presidential campaign, Biden called for a 100-day moratorium on deportations and the end of the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, which requires illegal immigrants to wait for their U.S. court hearing in Mexico after being apprehended.

The New York Times has reported that a migrant who was turned away at the border was heard on the phone stating “Biden Promised Us.”

You’ve hit the nail on the head with your comment. Personally, I think we should line up the troops, knock off a few of these invaders and let the bodies lie there to send a message.
