U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents found 40 illegal immigrants from Brazil in a truck’s trailer in Falfurrias, TX, on Saturday, Feb. 17.

According to The Associated Press, none of the immigrants had been hurt – but the inside of the trailer was so hot that when agents opened the doors, they could feel a rush of heat.

Falfurrias, which is 75 miles north of the border on U.S. 281, has an inland highway checkpoint.

Agents searched the trailer after a border patrol dog picked up the scent of people inside.

The name of the truck driver hasn’t been released, but authorities said in a press release that the driver is a U.S. citizen from Weslaco, TX.

The discovery comes less than a month after a Texas jury sentenced former trucker Tyrone Williams to life in prison for his part in a 2003 smuggling operation that resulted in 19 deaths.

This is part of the issue with illegal immigration. Of times the immigrants themselves are human trafficking victims and sometimes slaves. Why are people so mean to each other?
