Over the weekend, three hundred U.S.-bound Central Americans migrants, dozens of whom were children, were found inside two trucks in Mexico without proper ventilation or enough food or water.
Daily Mail reported that Mexico’s National Institute of Migration, known as INM, confirmed that 198 migrants from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were found Saturday morning inside a truck as they were being transported in the state of Tamaulipas, border with Texas.
“They were traveling in overcrowding conditions,” said the INM.
On Friday, police found another truck with 102 Central Americas with signs of dehydration and asphyxia.
President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Friday to stay that, “Any deal on DACA that does not include STRONG border security and the desperately needed WALL is a total waste of time.”
Any deal on DACA that does not include STRONG border security and the desperately needed WALL is a total waste of time. March 5th is rapidly approaching and the Dems seem not to care about DACA. Make a deal!

Sens. John McCain, a Republican, and Christopher A. Coons, a Democrat, introduced a bill today that would grant permanent legal status to the so-called Dreamers as well as tighten security along the U.S.-Mexican border. McCain wrote on Twitter that the bill was an “important starting point towards reaching a bipartisan immigration compromise so we can end the gridlock” and move on to completing a budget agreement.

Before he took office, President Trump promised he would crack down on illegal immigration like no other leader had before. This all shows that he is following through with this promise big time.
