ICE Finds Dozens of ILLEGALS Smuggled Inside Several 'stash houses' in NW DC; 73 Migrants — Including 13 Children — Found in Stash Houses in Affluent DC Neighborhood

ICE finds dozens of migrants smuggled inside several 'stash houses' in NW DC: Report:
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) found 73 migrants, some of whom were children, inside several homes in Northwest D.C., ABC News reports.
According to ICE, the homes known as "stash houses" are believed to be operated by human smugglers. An ICE spokesperson refused to comment on the details of the investigation, according to ABC News.
In June, more than 50 people were found dead inside an overheated tractor-trailer in San Antonio. This incident was considered the largest smuggling-related mass-casualty event in the U.S.
According to ABC News, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has approved more than $50 million and 1,300 personnel to focus on human smuggling. Since then, thousands of arrests have been made in recent months, according to DHS.
On Thursday, Mayor Muriel Bowser requested the deployment of the National Guard to help deal with migrants who are being bused to Washington from Texas and Arizona. The mayor called the situation a "humanitarian crisis." --->READ MORE HERE

73 migrants — including 13 children — found in stash houses in affluent DC neighborhood:
Dozens of migrants were found in stash houses run by human smugglers in an upscale section of Washington, DC, immigration officials said Thursday.
A total of 73 migrants — including 13 children — were hidden in six houses in the city’s northwest section, where the median home price is $750,000, according to NBC News.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers also found $95,000 and a small amount of cocaine in the homes during the bust Wednesday, according to internal documents cited by the outlet.
The bust comes on the heels of horrifying recent reports of migrants being subjected to dangerous conditions during their journeys to the US — including an incident in which 53 people suffocated in the back of a sweltering truck in San Antonio, Texas, last month. --->READ MORE HERE
