    219 illegal migrants rescued from truck in Mexico

    San Cristobal de las Casas (Mexico), Jan 28 (IANS/EFE) As many as 219 undocumented immigrants were found inside a trailer in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas when the vehicle passed through a checkpoint equipped with an X-ray machine, the state government said.

    During the inspection, the 219 immigrants inside the trailer called for help, were rescued and taken to the facilities of the state Attorney General's Office, 'where they received medical and psychological attention, food and legal advice',the Chiapas government in a communique Thursday.


    All but 10 of the migrants are from Central America, and the group includes 33 women and nine minors.


    The find was made at 4 a.m. Wednesday when the truck passed through the control point and authorities noticed that there were people in the cargo compartment.


    The driver ignored the order to stop, but he was chased down by police.


    The driver and his assistant were arrested on suspicion of human trafficking and the truck was found to have been reported stolen.


    Some of the migrants told officials they 'had been threatened so that they would not reveal that they travelled in the trailer in exchange for paying at least 58,000 (Guatemalan) quetzales ($7,355)' each, the state government said.


    The driver and his assistant offered bribes to the police to be allowed to continue on their way, but 'they were apprehended and placed at the disposition of the authorities', the statement said.


    Mexican authorities estimate that some 300,000 undocumented immigrants, most of them Central Americans, enter this country's territory each year trying to make their way to the US.

    This didn't happen at or near the U.S. border with Mexico.
    It happened at San Cristóbal de las Casas in the Mexican state of Chiapas.
    Which is way down in southern Mexico.

    How poor and needy of jobs could they be if they can afford over $7,000 each? How many American citizens could afford to pay that sum for a job?

    They usually borrow the money from another illegal family member already working in the U.S.. Then start working and pay them back.

    That thought has always stuck in my crawl. Seems the "poor" Mexicans and other hispanics have more money than "poor" Americans. There was and is no way I could come up with that kind of money. That amount of money would go a much longer way in their own countries...

    People borrow money from their relatives, friends and neighbors to make the trip.
    When they get a job they have to send money home to repay the loans.
    It's like people are investing in the migrant who will then pay them back with interest.
