At least 100 immigrants were found crammed into a tourist bus last Saturday (18) in the city of Tlaxcala, central Mexico.
According to a statement from the National Institute of Migration (INM), the people were identified during a routine operation, after immigration officers asked the bus driver to stop the vehicle.
After checking the passengers’ documents, the INM could not prove the legal stay in the country of at least 100 people. Of this total, 98 come from Guatemala.
In addition to those traveling on top of the bus, three immigrants were also found inside the trunk of the vehicle.
According to the INM, adult passengers were sent to the immigration service, while family members and minors were under the supervision of authorities of the Comprehensive Family Development System.
