Sri Lankan Illegal Immigrants Found In Mexico

Foreign news reports quoting an official source have stated that a group of 76 undocumented immigrants from Central America and Sri Lanka were rescued with signs of dehydration from inside a semi-trailer left abandoned in the southeastern state of Chiapas in Mexico.
The Latin America Herald Tribune has quoted the Chiapas delegation of the federal Attorney General’s Office saying that a semi trailer was found at Kilometer 21 (Mile 13) on the Villaflores-Ocozocoautla highway.
An anonymous report alerted cops to the plight of 76 immigrants found inside the truck “in a space approximately 3 meters (10 feet) wide by 8 meters (28 feet) long, and who showed visible signs of dehydration,” the source had said.
The immigrants, who had no proof they were in the country legally, have reportedly said they were from Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Sri Lanka.

The source had not said how many were from which country or the number of men and women, nor if there were any children.
According to the news report, all were sent to the National Migration Institute for possible deportation, while the AG’s office investigates to find out who put the undocumented immigrants in that situation.

    Sri Lanka is a heaven for minorities. Government doesn’t kill minority civilians. Satellite images which depicts heinous act carried out by this government by hilling around 30,000 civilian is fabricated story. In 83 government & criminal Sinhalese didn’t get to gather to butcher thousands of Tamils in this country. All those dead were suicides and because of the heat wave all Tamil homes & their business premises caught fire. Within the last 3 decades no single minority was killed by state terrorists. These are rumors to tarnish the image of Sri Lanka and minorities get every thing in this country. They have equal rights to live in this country and there is no need to be a Buddhist to become a president. We didn’t deprive people in North and East from accessing food and medicine. Our war planes never bomb civilian settlements and before we bomb a target we get the confirmation from LTTE that it is a military target. We didn’t bomb a single orphanage and those bombs were dropped by aliens to kill those innocent children. We condemn such brutal act carried by alien. We never block any independent investigation on alleged war crime & genocide in Sri Lanka and we never refused to issue visa with the intension to cover up any crime. Therefore there is no reason for minorities to look for asylum in another country.
