3 migrants dead, 12 injured in Mexico crash

TAPACHULA, Mexico (AP) — Three migrants and two Mexican citizens are dead and a dozen migrants are recovering from injuries following a highway accident in northern Mexico, the country’s National Immigration Institute said Tuesday. The three dead migrants included a girl from Honduras; the nationalities of the other two remained unclear. The van the migrants were riding crashed in the northern border state of Nuevo Leon. It is not clear if the dead Mexicans included the driver of the vehicle. The injured included people from Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua. The institute said they would be given humanitarian visas, and the bodies of those deceased would be returned to their home countries. Victims of crashes involving migrant smuggling are generally considered crime victims in Mexico, and thus are eligible for such visas. Immigrants smuggling has become increasingly risky in Mexico, with dozens of migrants often found stuffed into freight trucks or buses. A On Tuesday, authorities said angry residents of a town on Mexico’s southern border seized three Mexican immigration agents to demand the National Guard and soldiers combat rampant migrants smuggling operations. Residents say the migrants smugglers frequently attack, rob or threaten them. For more information, contact us at: http://www.beverlyhillsimmigrationlaw.com/index.html
