32 illegal immigrants found in Texas stash house

EDINBURG, Texas (AP) - The Border Patrol says it has arrested 32 illegal immigrants found in an unfurnished, mobile home without electricity.

Border Patrol agents, Edinburg police and Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations agents found the illegal immigrants in the single-wide trailer with only one bathroom and not enough room to sleep on Wednesday.

Two suspected smugglers were also arrested. Border Patrol says 27 of those arrested were Mexicans and the remainder came from El Salvador. They will be processed and deported.

Immigrants are often held in homes just across the border for days until transportation for the next leg of their journey is arranged.
