131 illegal immigrants found during raid at Texas ‘stash house’

Federal agents have arrested four people accused of smuggling 131 illegal immigrants found at a “stash house” in south Texas, a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement official said Wednesday.

The immigrants were also detained Tuesday after a raid at a house near Alton, Texas, about eight miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border, ICE spokeswoman Nina Pruneda said.

The people at the house were from Mexico and Central America, and did not require medical attention, she said.
