Earlier last week, over 50 Central American migrants were spotted hiding within the compartments of a truck, located at a checkpoint in the central state of Zacatecas. With the help of a large x-ray scanner, Mexican officials were able to detect these migrants. The migrants were from Ecuador, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. From these 51 migrants, 21 were minors, who are now in the custody of the country’s National Migration Institute (INM). The x-ray displayed footage of bright silhouettes on the truck, which appeared as “ghost-like” figures. The footage showed some of the migrants sitting, and others lying down along two levels in crowded compartments. Just a few weeks back, Former Prison Chief Francisco Garduno was appointed as the new head of the INM. Under Garduno, the immigration authority has made a number of high-profile captures of migrants smuggled in vehicles. About Homeland Security Research Corp. (HSRC) Homeland Security Research Corp.
