Ramos, Jorge, Cordero, Kristina

SUMMARY

From Emmy award winning journalist and best-selling author, comes a gripping narrative account of the tragic deaths of 19 immigrants in Texas as they tried to make their way across the Mexican-American border, and the 25 year old female mastermind responsible for the "human trafficking cell" held responsible for the crime. On May 14th, 2003, the familiar risk taken by hopeful immigrants illegally crossing the Mexican-American border into the United States took a tragic turn. At least 74 illegal immigrants bound for Houston were crammed inside a sweltering truck trailer, which was found abandoned near Victoria, Texas. In the end, nineteen individuals died. Bodies were found stacked upon each other, each human body slumped over the other in what was described as a "human heap of desperation." At the root of this grisly tragedy is a 25 year old Honduran born woman named Karla Chavez who after months of investigation was found to be the leader of the "human trafficking cell" responsible for the tragedy. In a thorough narrative, Jorge Ramos dissects the events that lead so many people to enter into an agreement with coyote (human trafficker) after coyote, in what to the immigrants on that fateful day, was a faceless entity, and their only hope for work and a chance at a better life in the United States.Ramos, Jorge is the author of 'Dying To Cross The Worst Immigrant Tragedy in American History', published 2006 under ISBN 9780060789459 and ISBN 006078945X.
