“By any standard, the horrific crime uncovered last night ranks as a stark reminder of why human smuggling networks must be pursued, caught and punished. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations works year-round to identify, dismantle, and disrupt the transnational criminal networks that smuggle people into and throughout the United States…

The liberal main-stream media have been playing this story as a tragedy that is the result of conservative immigration policies, when in fact the fault lies with the illegals found in the truck. No one forced them to come to the US illegally. They chose to make this trek and they knew that when they climbed into the back of the trailer that they would be fighting the intense heat. Their tragedy lies with themselves and the person or persons who left them inside the truck and not with conservatives.
