11 of the 53 migrants killed in the trailer in San Antonio, Texas , had ” serious criminal records in the United States,” Congressman Henry Cuellar told Border Report .

Investigators determined that 11 of the dead migrants had attempted to enter the United States and “broke the law.” The crimes weren’t just parking violations.

“They were US felony records. That means they had been here before and 20% had a history of serious crimes in the United States,” said Henry Cuellar.

Among the crimes committed are child abuse and homicide , according to the congressman, who obtained information in talks with people close to the case.
