Illegal immigrants found in stash house, police say

August 2nd 2012   ·   8 Comments

Nearly a dozen suspected illegal immigrants were found in a mobile home San Benito police believe was being used as a stash house.

Eight men and 3 women were arrested Wednesday afternoon at a mobile home park on the 1600 block of West Business 77.

San Benito police say they assisted Immigration and Customs Enforcement Enforcement (ICE) investigators and the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Investigators believe the adults were being held against their will. All of them were taken into custody by ICE agents.

  1. Should have sealed it from the outside so they could never get out.

  2. That’s because Obama won’t help the states secure our borders!

  3. Anne Brewer says:

    on today’s news in Gwinett County, GA (a north east suburb area of Atlanta) a “stash house” was raided and found cash, heroin, meth, and guns value estimated at over $7 million. they say they also arrested 3 “mexican nationals” who are being held in custody….. these will probably be another ‘catch and release’ if all goes as it most commonly does

  4. it would be worth the cost to fence the entire border, but we will have to wait until Obummer leaves. He needs them for his illegal votes…..
