Houston driver, Anthony Alfred Boring, was stopped at a border patrol checkpoint in April.
He told the border patrolman that he didn’t know what he was transporting. When the trailer was opened, the patrolman found 145 individuals from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Ecuador inside. The trailer was hot with no water and crammed with people. One Guatemalan migrant told investigators, “It was hot like fire. We couldn’t breathe. We were going to die.”
If convicted, Boring is looking at up to 20 years in prison and $250,000 in fines.
