 Among the dead was a so-called Dreamer, a migrant brought to the United States as a young child. Another 30 undocumented immigrants packed in the trailer were still alive but gasping from the lack of oxygen and the sweltering heat. They were taken to nearby hospitals where 17 are in critical condition.
