Mexico turns to satellite imagery in attempt to crack down on illegal immigrants who risk life and limb on board ‘Death Train’ to reach the U.S.

The Mexican government will use satellite technology to stem the tide of illegal immigrants fleeing to America on top of huge freight trains nicknamed La Bestia or ‘The Beast’.

The trains are also used by traffickers to get people into the United States.
