It’s difficult to keep tabs on all of the current crises occurring in the United States.
A tragic event may bring more attention back to the immigration crisis however.
At least 46 migrants were found dead in the back of a semi-truck on Monday in a remote area of San Antonio, Texas.
According to Police Chief William McManus, the migrants were discovered after a worker heard someone yelling for help from the tractor trailer at around 6:00 pm.
He discovered more than 50 migrants abandoned inside the trailer.
Tragically, 46 of them were already dead.
The remaining 16 were suffering from exhaustion and heat stroke.
This marks the deadliest human smuggling incident on American soil since 2003, where 19 immigrants suffered a similar fate inside a sweltering hot tractor trailer.
