9 illegals found dead in semi trailer in San Antonio

The driver of a tractor-trailer that was found in a Walmart parking lot with [nine] dead [illegal] immigrants and 30 others in bad shape is in federal custody, officials said Sunday.
James M. Bradley Jr., 60, is believed to be from Florida. He was booked into a federal jail in San Antonio on human trafficking charges for his alleged role in what U.S. Attorney Richard Durbin called "an [illegal] alien smuggling venture gone horribly wrong."  "We're working on a complaint right now," Durbin said. "He's in custody and he will be charged."
The [nine] immigrants are believed to have died as a result of heat exposure/asphyxiation, according to a San Antonio Police Department news release, but an official cause of death will be determined by the Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office.
Officials said it was a refrigerated trailer but the air conditioning wasn't working. Experts estimate the temperature inside the closed-in trailer could have reached dangerous levels; at just 80 degrees outside, the temperature inside a closed vehicle can reach 115 degrees in a half hour, according to the National Weather Service. San Antonio reached Saturday's high of 100 degree at 6 p.m.
San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said police were alerted by a Walmart employee who was approached by someone in the truck who asked the employee for water.
In addition to the deceased, officials said, about 30 others found inside were taken to area hospitals for treatment. "These people were in the trailer without any water," said San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood 
Police did not know the victims' country of origin, destination, or ages of the deceased or injured, according the press release.
University Hospital and SAMMC received 17 people with life-threatening injuries, police said, and 13 victims were taken to five other area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.
Border Patrol agents in Laredo have reported an increase in smuggling attempts in tractor-trailers in recent weeks, starting with the discovery of 44 people from Mexico and Guatemala discovered after police stopped an 18-wheeler on June 19 near one of the city's international bridges.
On July 7, agents found 72 people from Mexico, Ecuador, Guatemala and El Salvador inside a locked trailer in the same part of town. The next day, they found 33 people from Mexico and Guatemala inside a trailer stopped at the Border Patrol checkpoint on Interstate 35. In another incident last week, agents at the checkpoint found 16 people inside a locked trailer, according to a news release from Border Patrol.
[MOST OR ALL OF THESE HORRIBLE DISCOVERIES WERE MADE ON THE AMERICAN SIDE OF THE BORDER. THIS IS ONE EXAMPLE OF WHY WE MUST SEAL OUR BORDERS, BOTH ON THE NORTH AND THE SOUTH. THESE ATROCITIES, PLUS THE SCOURGE OF ILLEGAL DRUGS ENTERING OUR COUNTRY,  ARE ON THE BACKS OF CONGRESS- AND ON BOTH POLITICAL PARTIES- TO THEIR UTTER SHAME.
WE MUST KICK OUT THESE POLITICAL SCUMBAGS WHO SELL OUT TO THE OPEN BORDERS INTERESTS / FREE (BUT NOT FAIR)  TRADERS, AND GLOBALISTS.
I REALIZE THAT THIS INCLUDES MOST OF CONGRESS, BUT IT MUST TO BE DONE TO SAVE OUR COUNTRY.]
"These criminal organizations view these individuals as mere commodities without regard for their safety," Laredo Sector Assistant Chief Patrol Agent Gabriel Acosta said in a statement released last week. "The blatant disregard for human life will not be tolerated. We will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to disrupt and dismantle these organizations and prosecute those responsible."
