Mexico's Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard called the suffocation of the migrants in the truck the"tragedy in Texas" on Twitter and said consular officials would go to the hospitals where victims had been taken to help"however possible". Despite the boost from its allies, Ukraine was enduring another difficult day on the battlefront following the loss of the city of Sievierodonetsk after weeks of bombardment and street fighting. A spokesman for the Honduran foreign ministry said the country's consulates in Houston and Dallas would be investigating the incident. Mr Ebrard said two Guatemalans were hospitalised and Guatemala's foreign ministry said on Twitter that consular officials were going to the hospital"to verify if there are two Guatemalan minors there and what condition they are in". Luhansk province governor Serhiy Gaidai said Lysychansk was suffering"catastrophic" damage. The I-35 highway near where the truck was found runs through San Antonio from the Mexican border and is a popular smuggling corridor, due to the large volume of truck traffic, according to Jack Staton, a former senior official with ICE's investigative unit who retired in December. In July 2017, 10 migrants died after being transported in a tractor-trailer that was discovered by San Antonio police in a Wal-Mart parking lot. The General Staff of Ukraine's Armed Forces said the Russians were trying to cut off Lysychansk from the south.

The driver, James Matthew Bradley, Jr., was sentenced the following year to life in prison for his role in the smuggling operation. Russian reports yesterday that troops had already entered Lysychansk could not be confirmed by Reuters. Mr Staton said migrants have regularly been intercepted in the area since the 2017 incident. "It was only a matter of time before a tragedy like this was going to happen again," he said.
