Seven people are charged after immigrants are found hidden in a trailer without water in Texas

San Antonio – Seven people have been charged in the south texas after endangering more than twenty immigrants who were being transported in a secret compartment of a trailer in the middle of high temperatures and with little water, authorities reported. One person remained hospitalized Friday.

Acting on a tip about a human smuggling operation, Bexar County Sheriff’s Office deputies found 26 migrants Thursday morning at a residence near San Antonio that Sheriff Javier Salazar called a “shack.” with holes in the ground and no water.

Salazar said he did not know when the migrants had crossed the border, but he believed they had been brought to the area from the border city of Laredo, about 160 miles (260 kilometers) away.

The immigrants had been in the secret compartment of the trailer for three hours, Salazar said. Temperatures in San Antonio reached 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32 degrees Celsius) Thursday afternoon and were expected to top 100 degrees Fahrenheit (37 degrees Celsius), according to the National Weather Service.
