The immigrants were found in a trailer in Edinburg and their conditions weren't immediately known, ABC13 reports.

The police have launched a procedure for the use of "symbols of unconstitutional organizations" by the tourist. The tourist was identified only as a 41-year-old American man who was "severely drunk", according to police.


Police were notified by a anxious family member in Mexico who reported that a relative was locked inside a trailer that was getting to hot for those inside. Edinburg is in southern Texas, along the US-Mexico border.

Officials said that the immigrants were from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and Romania, KRPC added. Police said they believed the immigrants were in the truck for eight to nine hours.

James Bradley, 60, the driver of the trailer, was arrested and charged with smuggling the people.
