Death on the Border Continues: Migrants Die in Train Car, Found in Uvalde, Texas
In 2022, Uvalde, Texas was the site of a horrendous school shooting. On a more commonplace note as migrants on a daily basis die on the U.S./Mexico border, CNN reported over the weekend that two migrants were found dead in a shipping container on a train the authorities stopped east of Uvalde, Texas. One other person was left in serious condition and another in critical condition.
In a news release, Uvalde police said they “received a 911 phone call from an unknown third-party caller advising there were numerous undocumented immigrants ‘suffocating’ inside of a train car.” The Border Patrol stopped the train northeast of Uvalde. 17 people were found on the train; 15 men and two women.
