Ten people died on Sunday as a result of being trapped in the cargo bay of a tractor-trailer, where other passengers banged on walls and shouting for help, according to published reports.
A truck driver was charged in a criminal complaint. He is accused of smuggling 39 immigrants across the U.S. border. Authorities said the organized operation appears to the have the earmarks of a notorious Mexican gang.
Police found at least 39 people in the tractor-trailer, which was parked in a Walmart parking lot here. Eight men were dead. Two others died later at a hospital, the authorities said.
In February 2015, I wrote a column about a story I covered in July 1987 where 18 immigrants died after being trapped in a boxcar in Sierra Blanca, Texas.

It is such a tragedy. But desperation and hunger drive people to do desperate things to feed themselves and their families.
The Senate is voting on Tuesday on a Healthcare plan pulled out of the deep and dark places of Trump’s ass by Mitch McConnell and given the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval by the GOP. Collectively, they are determined to shove it up the nation’s keister.

But nobody has the details about what is covered and what is not because most in Congress have not seen it yet. They just know that this political enema was concocted to expulse the land from Obamacare and make Americans feel good about something nobody can explain or figure out.
But it will also give Trump some kind of victory.
Nonetheless, there will be millions who will lose their healthcare coverage if this blur of the Republican Senate’s healthcare bill is allowed to limp, beaten, battered and blind across the finish line.
There will be a debate, however, as soon as the Senate Republicans figure out what they are debating.
Everybody needs to pay into the health-care system. There should a federal sales tax where the money can be earmarked to subsidize health care for the entire nation.
“Spicey” the Cartoon Character
The White House cartoon character, who some affectionally call “Spicey” and find some of the things he does adorable, is simply a lying scoundrel who left without a shred of dignity, integrity or self-respect.
CNN and other media networks recently lamented the exit of Sean Spicer as though he was a national treasure to be cherished and in some way admired.
CNN had its Breaking News banner out and across the screen when Spicer announced his resignation. Spicer’s departure neither news nor a breaking news event. It’s what has become Trump’s version of Musical Chairs and Spicer is the latest casualty.
Simply put, reporters who bemoaned his departure should come to grips that the White House version of Baghdad Bob was a tool for the Trump’s political circus.
He got a fat paycheck for renting his lying tongue and did so as easily as he dodged questions and played stupid in front of reporters and the American people.
He tried to sabotage the First Amendment with the blessing of his handler, Donald Trump.
However, Spicer had his standards, even in the swap. He didn’t want to share the Orange Man’s septic tank with a creature who he felt was much worse than himself, Slick Anthony Saramucci.
A CNN panel, however, was busy analyzing what would happen after “Spicey’s” departure and mulling over where their lovable character will end up, I keep thinking, STFU. And, who cares?
Trump rewarded Spicer’s loyalty by bringing in another suit with a slicker tongue, marked new and improved.
New liar and White House Communications Antony Scaramucci said at this at his first news conference: “I’ve seen this guy (Trump) throw a dead spiral through a tire. I’ve seen him at Madison Square Garden, with a top coat on, he’s standing in the key, he’s hitting foul shots and swishing them. He sinks three-foot putts.”
Spicer will probably find a job at Fox where liars with long titles and plenty of political BS to fling can get work spewing the GOP talking points unabated — 24/7.
