Tenth immigrant dies in Texas trailer atrocity
By Genevieve Leigh
25 July 2017
The death toll continues to rise among the 39 immigrants who were discovered in the sweltering trailer of a semitruck early Sunday morning in San Antonio, Texas. Nine were already dead when the trailer was opened, having succumbed to intense heat and lack of oxygen after being locked in the trailer for some 24 hours. Some survivors fled when the trailer, parked in a Walmart lot, was opened.
Federal authorities announced Monday morning that one of 20 survivors taken to the hospital in critical condition had died, bringing the number of fatalities to 10. They warned that others suffering from extreme heat stroke and dehydration might succumb.
New reports based on interviews with the 
immigrants in custody estimate that as many 
as 180 people may have been crammed into 
the sealed trailer as it made its way through 
Texas in a large-scale smuggling operation. 
One unidentified immigrant explained that people took turns gasping for air through a hole in the trailer’s side. Many passed out from the heat. Others shouted and banged on the walls to get the driver to stop.
After one immigrant entered the Walmart looking for water, a worker at the store called the police. Everyone inside the trailer had a heart rate of more than 130 beats per minute when the doors were opened. Their skin was hot to the touch.
At least 17 victims remain in critical condition
as of this writing, with one source reporting 
that some may have irreversible brain damage
from the high temperatures. The identities and nationalities of the passengers have not been confirmed but at least a portion are known to be citizens of Mexico and Guatemala, according to officials in those countries.
Jesus Romero, who directs the immigration service project ISAAC down the street from the Walmart, told the World Socialist Web Site that the incident was “a tragedy of colossal proportions.” Romero added, “There were actually women and children in this truck, and some of them died. And their only sin is to have broken our immigration laws in order to come to work. It is so horrendous that these things have to happen to people who mean us no harm and contribute so much to our society.”
Media coverage has focused on the truck driver, who has been arrested and faces charges that could bring life imprisonment or even the death penalty. This is a heinous crime. Yet the media is saying nothing about the government officials, business interests and politicians who bear the overriding responsibility for these deaths and the thousands more caused by their witch-hunting, persecution and exploitation of immigrant workers and youth.
Guilt begins with the Trump White House, Homeland Security Secretary Gen. John Kelly, those who run the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and the border police, and their accomplices in both parties who have over the past several decades enacted a series of laws, under Democratic as well as Republican presidents, militarizing the border and imposing ever more vicious attacks on undocumented workers.
The criminalization of impoverished workers fleeing countries in Central and Latin America devastated by the depredations of US imperialism for more than a century has been carried out under increasingly onerous and antidemocratic laws backed and signed by presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama, paving the way for Trump’s program of mass arrests and deportations.
The surviving victims of the San Antonio death trailer will be thrown into detention centers and promptly deported, most likely without being given an opportunity to plead their cases before a judge.
The 60-year-old Florida man who was driving the truck, James Matthew Bradley Jr., has been charged with knowingly transporting illegal aliens. He denies knowing that anyone was locked in the trailer.
Ruben Garcia, who runs the immigration service Annunciation House in El Paso, Texas, told the WSWS: “It’s interesting as I listened to the news reports and I heard the various law enforcement officers, they want to single out the smugglers for this horrific act. But there isn’t a word, not a single word, about what pushes people to take these kinds of risks.”
Garcia added, “They have launched their investigations and they have arrested the driver and it will make it seem how righteous that we are going to go after these ‘bad people.’ And no one will ever say what it is about the policies that push people to have to work this way.”
Garcia has worked with immigrants for over forty years. He explained that nearly every immigrant who passes through his organization has been brought to the US by smugglers. The dangers posed by the drug cartels and the horrendous conditions that exist in countries such as Mexico compel immigrants to pay exorbitant amounts of money to be smuggled through in groups.
Garcia concluded, “This tragedy in San Antonio serves as a symbol of the present environment. If our system is incapable of acknowledging that these are the kinds of realities that drive people out of their country, if enforcement is the only solution offered, where we say, ‘They don’t belong here, kick them out, lock them up,’ then they are going to turn to the smugglers and you are going to have the San Antonio situation again and again.”
The deaths of the immigrants in San Antonio are a crime against the entire international working class, for which the American ruling class is directly responsible. Decades of imperialist aggression and plundering throughout the world, spearheaded by the United States, from the destruction of entire societies such as Iraq and Syria, to the 2009 ousting of the president of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, has left 66 million people displaced worldwide, the highest number ever recorded.
The same politicians who organize imperialist violence against the international working class carry out brutal policies of austerity and repression against the workers at home. The tools of oppression forged in the attack on immigrants are being used against the working class as a whole. The massive surveillance apparatus, ostensibly erected for “national security,” is illegally spying on the entire country, native-born and immigrant alike. The same police forces, armed to the teeth with military equipment supplied by the Pentagon, that are being empowered under Trump and Kelly to help round up and detain immigrants, brutalize and kill US citizens every day with impunity.
All of the problems exposed by the tragic deaths in San Antonio are produced by the capitalist system. In an age where money, commodities and the elites move with ease across national boundaries, there remain millions who are forced to risk their lives entering countries without documents, while thousands of armed men hunt them down.
The Socialist Equality Party stands for the unconditional right of workers of every country to live and work in whichever country they choose. We call for full democratic and citizenship rights for all immigrants, including the 12 million or more in the US now classified as “illegal.”
We call on workers of all nationalities to unite in defense of immigrants all over the world. This fight is an inseparable part of the defense of the rights and social interests of all workers and the struggle against the growth of militarism and war. It requires a common struggle against the capitalist system and all those parties and political forces that defend it.

“In Mexico, a recent Zogby poll declared that the vast majority of Mexican citizens hate Americans. [22.2] Mexico is a country  saturated with racism, yet in denial, having never endured the social development of a Civil Rights movement like in the US--Blacks are harshly treated while foreign Whites are often seen as the enemy. [22.3] In fact, racism as workplace discrimination can be seen across the US anywhere the illegal alien Latino works--the vast majority of the workforce is usually strictly Latino, excluding Blacks, Whites, Asians, and others.”


An American immigrant is not someone supported by government funds in a "relocation" center; flown over here at government expense; given a cash allowance, free housing, and medical care; and then eased onto local public assistance: Section 8 rental grants, food stamps, WIC, AFDC, clothes from one government-sponsored charity or another, Medicaid, and public schooling, with free lunch and breakfasts and even help with furniture. That's not an immigrant.  That's a future Democrat voter.  ----- RICHARD F. MINITER – AMERICAN THINKER         COM

GRAPHIC: Raped 12-Year-Old Girl Found Dead near Texas Border


PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Coahuila — A week-long manhunt led authorities to arrest a man wanted for kidnapping, raping, murdering, and disposing the body of a 12-year-old girl in this border city.

The case began two weeks ago in Piedras Negras, Coahuila, when the parents of 12-year-old Yuliana Rubi Hernandez Barrera reported her missing. Mexican authorities issued an alert and searched for the girl for five days until authorities found her decomposing body in an open field. An autopsy carried out by Coahuila investigators revealed that the victim had been sexually assaulted prior to the murder.
During the investigation into the murder, Coahuila authorities were able to identify 24-year-old Cesar Manuel “El Yukero” Alegria Sanchez as a prime suspect. According to information from the preliminary investigation, Alegria stalked the victim and then began making contact by trying to befriend her. During the investigation, authorities were able to locate Alegria in the Mexican coastal state of Veracruz and arranged for him to be taken to Piedras Negras, where he is currently being held for a trial.
Piedras Negras is immediately south of Eagle Pass, Texas, and has a long history of drug and human trafficking use by Los Zetas cartel members. Over time, the city has seen an extremely high number of disappearances linked to the organization that kidnapped hundreds of victims, only to later murder them and incinerate the bodies, Breitbart Texas reported.

Ted Cruz is Our Advocate in Congress, Says Border Patrol Agent

A U.S. Border Patrol agent who heads the organization that represents 18,000 men and women who protect the border said Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is their advocate in Congress.

Border Patrol Agent Brandon Judd, in his capacity as president of the National Border Patrol Council, said, “We have to have an advocate in Congress, which I believe is Ted Cruz.”  Judd’s comments came during a July 17 interview on C-SPAN about illegal immigration and border security.
Agent Judd discussed several of President Donald Trump’s agenda items relating to the securing the border and reducing illegal immigration. One critical part is the border walls promised by the president and how those will be paid for.
“If you look at the ideas [Cruz] has come up with, he is talking about illicit traffic,” Judd explained. “This is a huge drug problem. The opioids flowing across the southwest border right now.”
Judd referenced Cruz’s suggestion that funds seized from drug cartels be used to pay for the border walls.
“What Ted Cruz has proposed is any funds that are seized through illicit traffic would then go toward the border wall,” he said. That’s ingenious. It is the outside of the box thinking that I think we need in Congress.”
He said that advocates like Cruz are what is needed to make certain the cost of building the wall does not become a “burden on the taxpayers. I think [Cruz’s idea] would be great,” he said.
The junior senator from Texas named his proposed bill, “Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order” (EL CHAPO, Breitbart Texas reported in April.
“The U.S. Government is currently seeking the criminal forfeiture of more than $14 billion in drug proceeds and illicit profits from El Chapo, the former leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel who was recently extradited to the U.S. to face criminal prosecution for numerous alleged drug-related crimes, including conspiracy to commit murder and money laundering,” Cruz stated.
Later in the interview, Judd reemphasized Cruz’s “El Chapo” act. “If that bill does pass,” Judd stated, “then we alleviate the tax burden on the taxpayers and we are able to build the wall in a manner that I think is ingenious.”
“If we want to think outside the box,” Judd concluded, “we are going to have to support people like Ted Cruz, who came up with an ideal that allows us to build a wall without taxpayer funds.”
