Four men, including two Mexican nationals, were arrested in connection with the deaths of 53 migrants smuggled into Texas from Mexico in the back of a sweltering tractor trailer.

Homero Zamorano Jr., 45, was arrested Monday after San Antonio police responded to 911 calls and discovered him hiding in the brush near the trailer, the US Justice Department said in a statement. His appearance and clothing matched border patrol video of the driver of the truck when it passed through an immigration checkpoint, the department said.
