The program has become closely watched around the world, promoted by the two governors as a way to reduce emissions without harming the economy.

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says, "It is sad that 14 years later people are still being smuggled in tractor-trailers." Thomas Homan says when he learned that migrants were found dead inside a tractor-trailer in San Antonio, his mind flashed back to 2003, when 19 migrants southeast of the city died in the back of a truck. Homan says the criminal organizations that do the smuggling are "all about making money."
