HOUSTON—More than 100 suspected illegal immigrants were found living in deplorable conditions in a south Houston stash house Wednesday, police said.
The men, women and children were held against their will by smugglers or coyotes.
One officer described the inside of the home in the 14700 block of Almeda School Road as "awful."
"There is no hot water in the house. There is a toilet that partially works—one bathroom for in excess of 100 people," said HPD spokesman John Cannon.
Police said there was human waste all over the house.
The victims included a 24-year-old pregnant woman and her two children, ages 5 and 7.
