More than six dozen illegal aliens, including children, were found in stash houses — likely operated by the Mexican drug cartels — in a wealthy region of Washington, D.C., a new report reveals.
According to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) records, reviewed by NBC News, the illegal aliens were found in a raid that saw agents search six stash houses in the nation’s capital.
Stash houses are seemingly most common along and near the United States-Mexico border. The report indicates that the human smugglers associated with the Mexican drug cartels have forged a significant smuggling route for illegal immigration to Washington, D.C.
