San Antonio Death Count Reaches 53 in Abandoned Immigrant Smuggling Trailer

Does the Alamo City Government Encourage Illegal Immigration?

The George Soros Connection

Smugglers Arrested

The death count reached 53 for over 70 illegal immigrants abandoned off Quintana Road in south San Antonio in a tractor-trailer during extreme Texas heat Monday.

Update:  A 45-year-old driver of the truck, Homero Zamorano, originally tried to pass himself as one of the victims. Police say he was high on meth.

Juan Francisco D’Luna-Bilbao and Juan Claudio D’Luna-Mendez, were arrested after police traced the truck’s information to their home. 

“It was a hot oven in there,” one San Antonio police officer told CleverJourneys. “They were baking and just left for dead sometime before 6 p.m. and found by a city employee who heard screaming.”

“They didn’t even have water,” the officer continued. “We believe they came up (Interstate Highway) 35 from Laredo. How they circumvented inspections we do not know.”

“With this bought-out chief (William McManus), socialist major (Ron Nirenberg) and (George) Soros owned DA (Joe Gonzales) they will just try to sweep it under the rug again,” noted the officer. “Sheriff deputies are stuck with (County Judge Nelson) Wolff so there you go. It’s as if they work together to encourage illegals here. Between them and the big Biden money that is exchanged between these charities, hotels, and others, it’s no wonder.”

Texas Governor Greg Abbott, tweeted, “These deaths are on Biden. They are a result of his deadly open border policies.”

.

🔹Since Joe Biden took office, after what millions of Americans believe was a corrupt and fraudulent 2020 election, at least 800 such deaths have occurred–the highest since U.S. Customs Border Protection (CBP) began keeping track in 1998. 

🔹Because of Biden’s wreckless border policies, CBP reports the Border Patrol has performed 27,111 “search-and-rescue missions” for illegal aliens. During President Trump’s last year in office, there were 5,071 such missions.

.

Among those who died in the tractor-trailer abandoned Monday, 22 were from Mexico, seven from Guatemala and two from Honduras, Roberto Velasco Álvarez, head of the North America department in Mexico’s Foreign Relations Department, tweeted.

City police and county deputies sought the help of nearby law enforcement and emergency responders in adjacent counties to aid in managing the injured and dead.

SAN ANTONIO’S BLEAK RECORD

🔹In June 2018, law enforcement found 54 illegal aliens inside a tractor-trailer near the San Antonio International Airport.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Special Agent in Charge Shane Folden said they were smuggled in from Mexico, Guatelmala, El Salvador and Brazil. 

“These criminal organizations are comprised of extremely callous individuals who disregard human life and make large profits on treating humans as a commodity,” Folden said.

🔹On July 23, 2017, San Antonio and Police Chief William McManus drew negative national attention when ten people were found dead and 30 injured inside a semitrailer overnight in a Walmart parking lot, also on the city’s south side.

While officers and emergency responders were concerned and working to respond to the injured, suddenly SUVs and vans arrived and whisked some of the illegal aliens away in an organized escape. McManus nonchalantly blew it off.

U.S. Homeland Security officers were startled when McManus told the media, “It happens all the time.”

.

🔹Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a lawsuit in Bexar County on Jan. 15, 2021 calling for the San Antonio police Chief William McManus to be removed from office.

🔹The Office of Attorney General investigators discovered that high-ranking city officials were told “the Mayor does not want ICE called,” and that Ron Nirenberg later described their release without being handed over to federal immigration officials as a “Christmas gift.”

🔹Insiders at City Hall, Bexar County Courthouse, and Commissioner’s Court indicate the city council, police department, district attorney’s office and county employees indicate the “political machine” were rightfully worried, but basically bought their time.

🔹A 2017 press release from the San Antonio Police Officers Association explains what occurred at December 2017 debacle:

“On that night, in possible violation of established procedures and State and Federal law pertaining to suspected human smuggling and trafficking cases, the Chief released twelve undocumented immigrants into the City of San Antonio without properly and thoroughly identifying them.”

“For several years now, San Antonio Police Officers have been well trained on how to handle and process human smuggling and trafficking cases. SAPD also works with Homeland Security through the Federal Joint Task Force to specifically target and arrest individuals involved in these crimes. On December 23rd, when twelve people were stopped and detained under suspicion of smuggling and being in the country illegally, the Officers on scene began following the law and established procedures. Then, Chief McManus arrived.”

SAPOA says City Manager is wrong protecting the chief

“When Chief McManus arrived unexpectedly on scene, in civilian clothing and with a lawyer from a non-profit organization, Officers briefed the Chief on the situation and their actions, which included notifying Homeland Security. The Chief immediately changed their orders: they were not to identify the individuals or check their immigration status (as Texas law allows local law enforcement to do) and they were not to involve Homeland Security (as per Joint Task Force procedures).”

“When an agent from Homeland Security did arrive, the Chief informed him that his assistance was not needed. After transporting the individuals to police headquarters, the Chief allowed the non-profit attorney complete access to them before ever allowing even one of the Special Victims Unit (SVU) detectives to speak to them. The Chief then stated that none of the detainees were to be processed through SAPD databases and ordered them released. At this point, SVU Supervisors were so shocked they requested the order be put in writing.”

“The twelve detainees were then escorted out of the back of police headquarters and released into the city. Afterwards, the Chief told the media that the case was based on a “fluid situation,” and that “it’s not necessarily how every case will be handled going forward.” SAPOA believes that the Chief’s actions were political, not in line with established State and Federal laws and procedures, and may have risked the safety of the community.”

“We have called upon Mayor Ron Nirenberg, City Manager Sheryl Sculley, and the City Council to investigate or at least have the Chief answer for his actions that night. Up to now, they have done nothing. Fortunately, the Texas Attorney General launched an investigation in January and has ordered the entire City government to preserve all evidence and present any and all documents, videos, and cellular phone data, regarding the December 23rd incident.”

🔹In October 2016, Nirenberg condemned San Antonio police officers who wore MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN caps while taking photos with presidential candidate Donald J. Trump at the airport. McManus reprimanded them.

THE BIDEN CONNECTION

Within a week after Joe Biden’s inauguration, federal officials began transporting some of the overflow illegal aliens to Laredo and El Paso to San Antonio, according to Congressman Henry Cuellar.

Initially, Mayor Ron Nirenberg tried to divert the narrative, claiming he was not aware of any plans to bus asylum seekers to his city.

“We have not received any word about asylum seekers being transported to the city via buses, as some reports have indicated,” Nirenberg said. “We know many people make their way here on their own, but we have not heard yet any reports of people being transported by bus.”

He was asked if a downtown shelter is being prepared to assist undocumented immigrants who may be brought here.

“Obviously, we’re going to meet needs as they arise,” said Nirenberg.

SOUTH TEXAS DEADLY HISTORY

🔹July 2021. Marc Anthony Bane, 45, of Porter, and Tara Rene Dillion, 33, of nearby Conroe, just northwest of Houston, were arrested for transporting 89 illegal aliens in a stolen 18-wheeler on July 13, 2021.

According to the charges, Bane and Dillon arrived at the Texas Border Patrol (BP) checkpoint on Interstate Highway 35 approximately 29 miles north of Laredo in a tractor-trailer.

A service K-9 dog alerted officers, who searched the vehicle and trailer and found 89 undocumented non-U.S. citizens in there.

🔹2018 in Laredo. The heat was on and against human trafficking as President Trump’s Border Wall and aggressive illegal immigration policies forced smuggling attempts to be thwarted.

In just a two week period, such smuggling attempts were greatly reduced after Laredo, Texas, border agents found 29 illegal aliens in one trailer, followed by 76 people lying on the floor or crouching against the walls of a tractor-trailer rig a week later.

🔹May 14, 2003. One of the deadliest smuggling incidents occurred along Highway 87 in Victoria, Texas where 70 people were trapped inside the trailer of an 18-wheeler.

In the end, 19 of those 70 died from dehydration.

.

Fourteen people were indicted by federal prosecutors, including truck driver Tyrone Williams, who was initially sentenced to life in prison.

In total, Williams was convicted on 58 counts of conspiracy, harboring, and transporting illegal immigrants.

In 2011, Williams was given a new sentence of nearly 34 years in prison after a federal appeals court overturned the multiple life sentences he received. Williams was the only defendant who faced a possible death sentence.

🔹July 2017. A dozen migrants were discovered in Houston in a box truck. Some as young as 16-years-old, undocumented and had paid for illegal transport into Texas from various Latin American countries.

.

Prosecutors indicated they were in the truck for 12 hours with no food and little water. The Penske rental truck was in the parking lot of a strip center on Harwin in southwest Houston and held 10 men, one woman, and a teen.

  1. No one in Texas is surprised by this. Most of the folks have become indifferent to the deaths of illegals being smuggled. I noticed that most, if not all were young males; perfect for induction into the gang world or other criminal acts. There are not enough jobs in the construction and yard care trades. So, they either turn to crime, live off of the taxpayers or move on north. As long as the Democrats hold power, our border is non-existent. Good reporting Jack and Dodie.
