18 Salvadoran Migrants Found Inside Trailer in Mexico

SAN SALVADOR – A total of 18 Salvadorans were among the 219 migrants found inside a trailer in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas, El Salvador’s Foreign Ministry said, adding that the repatriation process was underway.

Mexican authorities repatriated 14 Salvadorans over the weekend who had been found in Tuxtla Gutierrez, a city in Chiapas, and four others are expected to arrive in the Central American country on Tuesday, the ministry said.

The group consists of 13 men, three women and two children, the ministry said.

Initial reports last week, based on information from the Salvadoran consul in Tapachula, said 23 people from the Central American country were found in the trailer.

Deputy Minister for Salvadorans Abroad Juan Jose Garcia said Thursday that the remainder of the migrants were from Guatemala, Nepal and Bangladesh.

The 219 illegal immigrants were found last Wednesday when a truck stopped at a checkpoint.

The migrants called for help while officials conducted an inspection of the vehicle, the Mexican government said.

Authorities took the migrants to a state Attorney General’s Office facility, where they were provided with medical care, food, psychological counseling and legal assistance.

A total of 177 men, 33 women and nine children were found packed inside the trailer. EFE
