HOUSTON – Dozens of illegal immigrants were found in a raid at a southwest Houston home Friday.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents said 49 illegal immigrants were found in the house in the 14300 block of Hiram Clark. Eleven of them were children.

Officials said they received an anonymous tip at 8:45 a.m. that people were being held against their will.



Two people ran from the home when officers arrived. They were not caught.

ICE agents said the people were apparently smuggled into the United States from Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. They were taken to a detention center to determine how they got into the country.

The home was a rental. There was no furniture inside.

A fire broke out in the attic shortly after officers arrived. It was quickly extinguished.

Neighbors were shocked.

“I had no idea. Totally no idea,” neighbor Diane Williamson said.

  1. Hmmm good job protecting the Borders!

  2. I hope they take them for a good meal and put them in a nice hotel for the night. Its the least we can do for them. Maybe tomorrow we can go out and try to find a job for them. NOT But Nobama needs all the votes he can cheap by getting, so maybe they will detain them until December. Give me a frigging break. Thats exactly what they plan on doing.

  3. Homeland security at its best……. NOT! Thanks to the Obama team!!

    Send them back in body bags!

Why do you think the drug cartels are more violent in Mexico than the U.S.A.
