Tragedy in Texas reflects surge in migrant trafficking

The deaths earlier this week of 53 migrants in an overheated tractor-trailer in Texas points to an increase in the activity of traffickers, known as “coyotes,” in northern Mexico due at least in part to Washington’s use of Covid-19 as an excuse to keep asylum-seekers out of the United States.
