Toluca City –Ten Latino immigrants, including a pregnant woman and four children, were killed last night during an apparent illegal crossing into the U.S.
According to sources choosing to remain anonymous, the panel truck which carried them was attacked at approximately 10 p.m. by a single helicopter using a .50 caliber machinegun. None survived.
The immigrants died of multiple gunshot wounds, traumatic amputations, burns, and other injuries.
Seen and heard from afar, some witnesses claimed the attack was carried out by the American Border Patrol or by vigilante “watch groups.”
The incident is under investigation by local and federal agencies.

As the countdown to disaster continued death by death, he moved through a maze of traitors, terrorists and CIA operatives. With all of the odds against him, only a lovely libidinous female deputy sheriff stood staunchly at his side.
