Illegal immigration is the vector for the spread of measles and other diseases

Mexican officials find 289 migrants in tractor-trailer rigs

MEXICO CITY (AP) - Authorities in the northern Mexico border state of Tamaulipas say they have detained 289 Central American migrants, including some children with measles and other illnesses.
The Tamaulipas state government says the migrants were found crammed into the freight compartments of two tractor-trailer trucks.
Authorities had to punch a hole in one of the freight containers to free the migrants, who had been transported from the Gulf coast state of Tabasco toward the U.S. border.
