Texas Border Patrol finds more than 30 illegal immigrants packed into a U-Haul

Border Patrol agents in Texas found 33 illegal immigrants crammed inside a U-Haul last week as temperatures reached 100-degrees.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents made the discovery last Thursday outside of a McDonald's restaurant in the west Texas town of Van Horn, Fox News reported.

Many of those inside were 'close to perishing due to excessive heat,' border patrol agents announced late Tuesday, as the truck did not have any fresh air and temperatures hovered near 100-degrees. 

More than 30 illegal immigrants were found crammed inside a U-Haul truck last week as temperatures reached 100-degrees. Many of them needed medical attention for heat-related illnesses, with at least a dozen brought to a hospital

Some were treated for dehydration, KVIA reports, while at least a dozen needed to be hospitalized. None of the undocumented immigrants died, the border patrol agents reported.

'Had our heroic agents not been able to free these trapped undocumented migrants, we could have seen 33 miserable deaths in this event,' Border Patrol's Big Bend Sector Chief Sean McGoffin told the local news station.

'Smugglers do to care what type of misery they put people through as they take their money.'

The discovery comes less than a week after agents found another U-Haul truck carrying 27 illegal immigrants into the country in Big Bend.

The truck was found outside of a McDonald's restaurant in the west Texas town of Van Horn

It comes one week after Border Patrol found 27 illegal immigrants were found in another truck

The temperature inside the truck was 106-degrees at that time, and none of the immigrants were wearing personal protective equipment.

Texas has been facing a lengthy heatwave, with temperatures reaching up to 127-degrees in parts of the desert southwest.

A spokesman for U-Haul told Fox that they would not comment on the matter. 

'We tend to let law enforcement speak to any criminal activity where our equipment may be involved.'
