Mexico Rescues 68 Central American Migrants Abandoned in 2 Trucks

VERACRUZ, Mexico – A total of 68 undocumented Central American migrants were rescued from two trucks in the Mexican Gulf coast state of Veracruz, immigration officials and police said.

The migrants showed signs of dehydration when they were rescued by state police officers, having spent more than 10 hours inside the vehicles in 30 C (86 F) weather.

The Central Americans, including 15 minors and 10 women, were discovered Friday in the town of Tlalixcoyan shortly after midday on an unpaved road near the La Tinaja-Cosamaloapan highway, the officials said.

The police found the migrants, mostly from Honduras and El Salvador, while inspecting the abandoned vehicles.

The migrants were placed with the National Migration Institute and the trucks were turned over to the federal Attorney General’s Office in the port of Veracruz.
