A shocking scene of 39 illegal immigrants crawling from the back of a sweltering 18-wheeler truck, southwest of San Antonio near the Texas-Mexico border.
Frio County Sheriff’s Deputy Aaron Ramirez said that the sight was “very heartbreaking.” “The youngest that was in there was a 13-year-old little boy,” Ramirez said in an interview with KXAS-TV. ”As soon as he jumped out of the trailer he said, ‘Thank you so much. Thank you for saving us.’”
Frio County Sheriff’s Sgt. Jerry Reyna informed the station he decided to release the video caught on their body camera “to show the people that this is happening here in the United States, to where everybody’s aware that people are coming across to get a better life.”
KXAS said it’s unknown where the 39 are now but that they’re from Guatemala, El Salvador and Mexico.
