Honduran migrants found locked in tool box in El Paso, Texas

Three Honduran men cross the US border into Texas, jamming two tool boxes into the back of a pick-up truck.

According to a press release from the El Paso Sector US Border Patrol, three migrants were traced Thursday by Border Patrol agents at the Yeslet Station checkpoint in El Paso, Texas, when a black Chevrolet Silverado was taken for a routine check.

The discovery comes just days after authorities found an abandoned tractor trailer in San Antonio that was filled with the bodies of 53 migrants who died after temperatures in the city soared above 103 degrees, in the deadliest smuggling incident in US history. .

The unidentified driver, a US citizen, admitted to carrying “a personal amount of marijuana” and a handgun. According to the report, when asked about the tool boxes, he said that he does not have the keys to unlock them.

After Border Patrol agents managed to open the tool box and found the men, they arrested the driver, who is in custody, charged with conspiracy to transport.

It is not clear what happened to the migrants after they were discovered.

“It is the practice of international criminal organizations to endanger human lives by using dangerous and hateful smuggling tactics,” El Paso Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gloria Chavez said in a press release. “I am very proud of the actions of our El Paso Sector Border Patrol agents because they often face high-risk situations where, if not for their dedication and intervention, these incidents turn into tragedies.”
