How Many Immigrants Can You Fit into Two Tractor Trailers? At Least 513

X-ray images show immigrants crammed into the back of a truck heading to the U.S.
Immigrants will do just about whatever it takes to obtain a better life in the United States -- which apparently includes being crammed into two tractor-trailers with more than 500 other people.

Mexican authorities on Tuesday stopped the two trucks, and inside were 513 illegal aliens.

The immigrants, according to the Chiapas, Mexico, Attorney General's Office, were from Asia and Central America. The trucks, the AG's Office says, were heading to the United States.

The trucks tried to pass through a checkpoint in Chiapas, but x-ray equipment at the checkpoint showed they contained human cargo.

Once the jig was up, the trucks' drivers tried to speed away from the checkpoint, but they were apprehended nearby.

The 513 immigrants came from El Salvador, Ecuador, China, Japan, Guatemala, India, Nepal, Honduras, and the Dominican Republic. According to the Mexican AG's Office, they each paid $7,000 for a lift to the States.

Mexican federal-immigration authorities say they have been in contact with consulates and embassies to arrange the immigrants' return to their home countries.

This to inform you of a person living and working in the United States illegally. The names that this person assumes are as follows: Gabriela Sanchez (her niece), Karla P. Durazo (her aunt), Patty Durazo (her sister),Julieta Sanchez (her aunt), Patty Sanchez (her sister/her niece) Rocio Sanchez (her sister), Mayra Viramontes (her cousin), Karen Durazo (her cousin),Kenya Durazo (hercousin), Karina Sanchez (her cousin).All of the names assumed by her can be substantiated through her facebook account which is under the name Gabby Sanchez.Her Employer is: Dr. Larry Stark   3201 W. Peoria Ave # A-100   Phoenix, AZ 85029Her assumed Social Security # is her Aunt's Soc. Sec. # 611-32-7757 (Karla P. Durazo) who actually lives in California.She drives a pathfinder with AZ lic. # AHT4587 Her address is: 2220 W. Mission Ln. #1095 (which is in Larry Starks name /  Phoenix, AZ 85017    co-signed for)  SRP Acct # 919-863-000    (which is in Larry Starks name)Her Phone # 602-628-3116   (which is in Larry Starks name)Family Assistance Administration Case # 00564738 (Gabriela Sanchez)Dental work provided under the name Patty Sanchez. And full medical (BCBS)is paid for by Larry StarkHer sons name is Carlos Flores-Sanchez and he graduated from Cortez High School.She was raised by her Grandmother who was a whore in Mexico. This young woman makes it easier for other illegals to obtain medications includingnarcotics and evade citizenship tests through the Doctors office that she works in.Also supplying them with false identification and documentation. I am very concerned about the illegal activities (Document Fraud, Identity Theft, Conducting crimes in America) that she is involved in. Please address the above issues as soon as possible.

Something is wrong with this story.  I'm pretty sure the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico are on the same island.  Puerto Ricans are considered U.S. Citizens regards to travel and work in the U.S. (as in no passport required).   Why would a Dominican Republican pay $7,000.00 to be smuggled into the U.S. when all they have to do is cross the border into Puerto Rico, claim they are a citizen there and then fly to the U.S. for $400.00?

These anti "illegal" immigrant bigots are motivated by fear and hate - that's why their brains are on auto-pilot.  They can't see the reality of the complicated immigration system the U.S. has.  They focus on the border, when less than 1/3 of all undocumented foreign nationals come in to the U.S. by crossing the border.  They are wasting our time and money as taxpayers.  We should put their bigoted ignorance back in the toybox and throw it into the attic.

The Dominican Republic is on the same island as Haiti

Ummm... check out a map... there is a bit of ocean in between Puerto Rico and the Dominican. Just sayin... Maybe you had Puerto Rico confused with haiti...

What I forgot to mention is also that its easy for people to sneak into Mexico and then to the US, with the Dominican example I think that is the route they will most likely take if they dont want to to go by sea.

EP, the Dominican Republic shares an island with Haiti, Puerto Rico is separate, as you said Puerto Rico is a territory of the US so it's citizens are US citizens also, but like in the continental US when you fly from state to state all you need is a valid government issued id, so a Dominican sneaking into PR will need an ID to fly to the US.

 Good point. Here's another good question:

After the recent massive earthquakes in Japan, will we see more Japanese trying to smuggle themselves in? Japan was once the wealthiest industralized country in the world. And were deemed the smartest in terms of technology, math, business and medicine etc. It's rare to see Japanese come into our country in this manner. It's a shame. But after the earthquakes, who can blame them?

 those slant eyed gooks from japan have already taken over Hawaii. come here and see for yourself. or go up to the grand canyon AZ or go over to LA Calif. read the book WHITE LOTUS its about the gook race taking over the world.

This reinforces what I said in a post a while back, it makes me want to slap everytime I hear an idiot say "those MEXICAN illegals", if these imbeciles had any brains they would know the great mayority of illegals are NOT Mexican.

Here is that post:

 1. Mexican jails will never agree to that because contrary to popular belief, most illegal aliens are NOT from Mexico, and unlike the former USSR and Cuba it is not illegal for their citizens to expatriate just like it is not illegal for you to leave the US any time you want, illegals when caught only claim to be from Mexico so when they get deported right across the border fence they can turn around and come back in a day or 2 rather then weeks or months that were take them to come back if they were deported to central and south american countries, remember, Mexico, Argentina, and Brasil are the richest Latin American countries therefore their people are less like to leave due to hardship. I am not saying there are no Mexican illegals, what I am saying is the percentage of Mexican illegals is very small compared to Non-Mexican illegals versus what is reported to authorities when detained, this is no secret among Law Enforcement, I am fluent in Spanish and I can differenciate the accent when somebody tells me they are from Mexico but I know they are not, but without facts to prove otherwise you have to write it according to what they say. 2. It has been impossible for undocumented people to gain access to social programs like welfare for decades, since before you were born it is a requirement with every application to submit 2 forms of state ID, a Drivers Lic. and SSI card, both of which are going to be photo copied and attached to the application for review before the person can receive any benefits, a person without documents will immediately be denied, so this is a non-issue, this is just more pearce cool aid.3. Birthright citizenship? this will never happen, its is a Constitutional Right that every person born within the United States will be a United States Citizen period, states do not have the legal right to regulate immigration and do not have the authority to ignore Federal Law, the Civil War settled that argument. Every man and woman that has ever served in uniform took an oath to protect the US Constitution and US Citizens from all enemies, foreign and domestic, any attack on the Constitution or Constitutional Rights of US Citizens will make that person or persons very unpopular with the United States Military.4. WTF do enviromentalist have anything to do with illegals, dont you have enough problems already trying to save the planet? or are you telling me that illegal aliens are causing global warming and the depletion of the ozone layer?

so besides the person who is making 7k a head who wins this bullshit game?  where do these people get the idea that attempting to enter the us in this manner and coming to the us is a good idea?  what are they being told that makes it so tempting to act with such desperation?

so then why do so many of them come to the us and live on food stamps and ahcccs? i understand the poverty they live in. i understand wanting better but really?  coming here and living off the us broken system is better for them perhaps but it kinda screws over the american citizen.  i won't resort to the level of name calling but like i tell my children when i hear them call names......is that how you really feel about yourself?

 we have plenty of poverty here in the USA. ever hear off or see the homeless? or sunny slope?

US War Veteran

BTW have you ever heard of a soup kitchen, or shelter, every city in the US has at least one of each, the kicker is they won't take people that are drugged or drunk for obvious medical reasons, people working there are often volunteers and they dont have any medical training to handle an emergency, or if the person becomes violent they dont have staff to handle dangerous situations, so if a homeless whats a hot meal and a roof over his/her head all they have to do is clean up, stop drinking or doing drugs and they will be accepted anywhere. Also a lot of those shelters are part of church programs that are great for offering people part time jobs or some kind of training in something, we trully live in the greatest country in the world.

We dont know what poverty is in this country, what we call poverty here is a good living in other parts of the world. According to US Government poverty level in the US is a yearly income of  $22,350 for a family of four, some people of certain African countries for example make less then $10 a month per family, thats less than $120 a year, how is that for poverty? I bet the clothes and shoes you are wearing right now cost twice as much.
