According to The Washington Post, three hundred Central American migrants being transported in dangerous conditions in tractor-trailers were rescued in two Gulf coast states, Mexican authorities reported one week ago, on Saturday February 3.
A statement from the National Immigration Institute said two trucks were stopped at a checkpoint before dawn in the northern state of Tamaulipas, which borders Texas.
Scanners detected people inside, and 198 migrants from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were found without proper ventilation, food or water, and with practically no space to move. Photos released by the institute showed dozens of people inside a shipping container huddled in jackets and blankets.
“They were traveling in deplorable conditions,” the statement said.
Three people were arrested on suspicion of human trafficking.
The migrants told authorities they began their journey in Tabasco state and traveled through Veracruz to reach Tamaulipas.
