More Than 100 People Found in Texas Human Smuggling Raid
Police in Houston rescued more than 100 immigrants Wednesday from a suspected stash house where they were being held against their will.
A total of 94 men and 15 women, including children, were discovered inside the one-story, roughly 1,500 square-foot home, according to police spokesman John Cannon.
A pregnant woman was taken to a hospital for medical attention, but most of the others appeared healthy.
“No one looked to be seriously injured inside the home. They were very hungry and thirsty, and our officers gave them things to eat and provided water. They said they were tired and hungry,” Cannon said.
Five people were arrested.
Charges against them are pending, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Greg Palmore, who said that 95 men and 15 women were rescued.
