Eighty Illegal Immigrants and Four Smugglers Detained in Houston [VIDEO]
Authorities in Houston discovered eighty illegal immigrants being harbored by smugglers, following a tip to their whereabouts. A mother of one of the immigrants from Nicaragua also reported that she had paid $6,000 to smuggle her 16 year old daughter, but they had demanded more money.
According to the KRIS-TV, Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Greg Palmore says “They appear to be in dire straights. Some of them haven’t eaten in 12 hours. All of (them) were in their underwear. No one has shoes. No one had clothes.”
The smugglers have been arrested, and the illegal immigrants are being processed, including the tipster’s teenage daughter.
