: *Sounds very similiar to the story here in California about 6 months ago when 12 "illegals" (those men/woman/children/ who slave for less than minimum wage in the 100+ heat to protect you and I from having to pay one nickel more than we need to for that head of lettuce) were found asphyxiated to death in the back of the moving van employed to transport them to the field... including two girls aged 9 and 11. No charges were filed against the owner of the field.

Don: Are you sure they were not in a moving van that was smuggling them into the country? I know that quite a few have died when their coyotes abandoned them. I see lots of illegals being transported to fields in the back of stake-bed trucks; I've never seen moving vans used for that purpose. On the other hand, it is common for smugglers to use various kinds of closed vans, and to show complete disregard for the safety of their charges.

Don: It is also interesting that people feel the need to sneak *into* the US, and out of places like East Germany and Cuba. That should tell you something.
