Two men have been indicted on charges related to a deadly human smuggling case in San Antonio where 53 people died.  

Texas Tribune political reporter James Barragán calls the incident “the biggest migrant smuggling death situation, I think, in recorded history” – adding that the two people charged “face potentially life in prison or the death penalty if they are tried and convicted.”
