Trooper stopped a Ford F-250 towing a horse trailer on US-281 in Hidalgo County RGV. 

The smuggler, Jose Guadalupe Salinas from Palmview, Texas, consented to search the trailer and voluntarily opened the side hatch. 

Troopers discovered 27 illegal immigrants crammed inside a storage area, distressed and sweating profusely. Three females were severely dehydrated and required medical attention due to extreme heat and no ventilation. 

Troopers referred 27 illegal immigrants from Mexico to the US Border Patrol. US Border Patrol took custody of Salinas and will be filing federal charges for the smuggling of persons.
