The group of migrants consisted of 43 boys, 14 girls, 8 men and one family, a mother and her daughter, according to the INM. Authorities stopped the truck at a vehicle checkpoint along the Chihuahua-Ciudad Juárez highway.
U.S. authorities in June found an 18-wheeler full of illegal migrants San Antonio, Texas. The incident resulted in more than 50 deaths.

Federal authorities in the U.S. have seen record numbers of illegal migrants crossing into the southern border in recent years. In fiscal year 2022, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) recorded more than 2.3 million migrant encounters and an all-time monthly high of more than 250,000 in December alone at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The U.S. has also recorded a surge in unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border. CBP recorded more than 152,000 encounters of unaccompanied minors in fiscal year 2022 and more than 146,000 in fiscal year 2021, which was up from more than 33,000 in fiscal year 2020.
U.S. immigration authorities must release illegal migrant children and place them in “the least restrictive setting appropriate to the minor’s age and special needs, provided that such setting is consistent with its interests,” according to a 1997 consent decree.

EDITOR’S NOTE: What is behind the current war against America’s children? Why are so many adults killing their unborn children right up to the moment of birth, or even after? Why are millions of kids sexualized virtually from birth, and injected with an experimental “vaccine” proven to be both ineffective and dangerous, then as toddlers transported to events glorifying mentally ill, demonically possessed men dressed as women?
Why are America’s children systematically sexualized at school, and by transgender recruiters on social media platforms like TikTok, seducing many into “identifying” as the opposite gender, or a brand-new imaginary gender, then encouraged to take powerful drugs and hormones and have their healthy breasts amputated or undergo chemical or surgical castration?
Why are our children simultaneously indoctrinated with toxic Marxist ideologies like “critical race theory” intended to condition them to hate and reject their own country, parents, faith, race, gender and themselves? Why are they simultaneously being frightened of the future by being fed lurid, terrifying – and groundless – apocalyptic tales of the imminent destruction of the world due to global warming?
No wonder youth suicides have skyrocketed, as have depression, anxiety, addiction and drug overdoses. Indeed, fentanyl, the No. 1 cause of death of younger Americans 18 to 45, destroys multitudes of children annually.
Make no mistake: The harm being done to America’s children in this multi-front war is not accidental: Children are the primary target.
WHY? How can all this be happening in the greatest nation on earth? Who and what is behind it? And HOW CAN IT BE STOPPED?
