It’s a sad sight to see the dozens of ways immigrants risk their lives attempting be smuggled across the U.S. border. An already dangerous journey turns into one that is almost impossible to survive. On Friday, the U.S. Border Patrol released devastating and shocking photos of four undocumented immigrants crammed together in a long tool box bed.

The photos, released by the New York Post, show the orange metal box encapsulating the men who clutch black garbage bags of their belongings. They are smashed together so tight, it’s almost impossible to tell where one human body begins and ends, with heads being the only identifying feature.

Agents made the discovery near Rio Grande City. In addition to the four men in the metal container, twelve additional immigrants were in the actual truck. Miraculously, none of the immigrants were injured, as U.S. officials note that such smuggling tactics have deadly consequences.

Over the years, media outlets have reported that the smuggling of immigrants “often end up being chased by Border Patrol agents, and law-enforcement agents in rural parts of the Texas border with Mexico.” There has been an increase in the high speed chases, leading to car crashes and fatalities; not only of the immigrants but also of innocent bystanders in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The Dallas Morning News reported last summer that “deadly crashes rise on Texas roads as smugglers cram more migrants into smaller vehicles.”

BREAKING: Senate votes down both articles of impeachment against Mayorkas in party-line vote

Mayorkas

The Senate voted down two articles of impeachment Wednesday which alleged Department of Homeland Security Secretary  Alejandro Mayorkas engaged in the “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” regarding the southern border in his capacity as DHS secretary. The second claimed Mayorkas had breached public trust.

What resulted in a party-line vote, began with Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., proposing a point of order declaring the first article unconstitutional, to which the majority of senators agreed following several failed motions by Republicans. The article was deemed unconstitutional by a vote of 51-48, with Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, voting present.

Fox News reports:

Schumer’s point of order was proposed after his request for unanimous consent, which would have provided a set amount of time for debate among the senators, as well as votes on two GOP resolutions and a set amount of agreed upon points of order, was objected to by Sen. Eric Schmitt, R-Mo.

Schmitt stated in his objection that the Senate should conduct a full trial into the impeachment articles against Mayorkas, rather than the debate and points of order suggested by Schumer’s unanimous consent request, which would be followed by a likely successful motion to dismiss the articles. 

Republican senators took issue with Schumer’s point of order, as agreeing to it would effectively kill the first of the two articles. Several GOP lawmakers proposed motions, which took precedence over the point of order, to adjourn or table the point, among other things. But all GOP motions failed. 

After another batch of motions to avoid voting on Schumer’s second point of order, which would deem the second article unconstitutional, the Senate agreed to it. The vote was along party lines 51-49, with Murkowski rejoining the Republicans.
