At least 46 people believed to be migrants were found dead in an 18-wheeler in San Antonio, Texas, on Monday, in what may be the deadliest case of migrant-smuggling in recent years. A U.S. official said at least 40 people were dead in the apparent migrant smuggling attempt in South Texas. At least 16 others were taken to hospitals, San Antonio Police Department sources told ABC affiliate KSAT. The people are believed to have entered into the United States illegally. Officers from the San Antonio Police Department were on the hunt for the tractor-trailer's driver, sources told The New York Times.
