Hundreds of migrants forced to wait out U.S. asylum claims in Mexico are living at the foot of a border crossing bridge.
The victim was abducted in McAllen on May 12 and rescued when Mexican police at a checkpoint discovered him in the trunk of a vehicle driven by his alleged kidnappers.
Officials said on Wednesday the truck was carrying an unspecified amount of border crossing cards, which are used by Mexicans for short-term trips to the US border region.
Since Friday, violent attacks or gruesome discoveries of corpses have rocked wealthy Nuevo Leon and poverty-stricken Guerrero, where most of the violence was centered in the resort of Acapulco.
Dozens have been killed in Mexico’s northeastern border state in recent weeks, a brutal wave of violence that resembles what occurred in 2010 during the peak of the drug war.
