Hundreds of immigrants, including from India and Nepal, were caught trying to illegally enter the U.S. through Mexico hiding in tractors in conditions authorities say are “worse than the way normally cattle is shipped”.
Border authorities caught over 513 immigrants crammed in two tractor-trailers in the southern state of Chiapas, near Mexico border’s with Guatemala.
The people, who reportedly paid $7000 each to cross over into the U.S., came not just from Central America, but from “China, Nepal, India and even Japan,” a CNN report said.
While 273 people were in one of these trucks, 240 were crammed in the other.
