U.S. House Rep Tim Burchett (R-TN) didn’t hold back in a tweet today while addressing the mass casualty event that occurred earlier this week in Texas.
The deaths came at the hands of suspected human smugglers who transported the migrants into the United States in the back of a tractor-trailer.
Burchett reported, “53 people are literally cooked to death in the back of a tractor trailer and the national media has this as the 4th story.”
The Department of Justice announced on Wednesday that Homero Zamorano Jr. was arrested on criminal charges related to his alleged involvement in alien smuggling resulting in death.
Zamorano was arrested and charged along with Christian Martinez, Juan Claudio D’Luna-Mendez, and Juan Francisco D’Luna-Bilbao
Both Zamorano and Martinez face the possibility of life in prison or the death penalty, while both D’Luna-Mendez and D’Luna-Bilbao, who are Mexican citizens face 10 years behind bars.
Zamorano was reportedly driving the truck and was “observed hiding in the brush after attempting to abscond.”
The case against Zamorano appears to be pretty solid as a video taken at a federal immigration checkpoint near Laredo had recorded the driver of the truck as wearing a black striped shirt and a hat.
Zamorano was wearing the same clothes when he was arrested by San Antonio police.
