Texas police stop truck loaded with illegal immigrants

More than 80 people believed to be in the country illegally were found in the back of a tractor-trailer following a traffic stop in South Texas Tuesday night.

The 18-wheeler was stopped on Expressway 77 near Raymondville by members of the Texas Department of Public Safety. Police said there were no immediate reports of deaths or injuries, but they were still in the process of counting and assessing the people found in the trailer.

Authorities say some of the people were treated for dehydration.
