'No Respect For Human Life' -- ICE Busts Human Traffickers Keeping 67 Illegal Aliens In New Mexico Shed

Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced yesterday that authorities have discovered human traffickers keeping 67 illegal aliens from Guatemala and Ecuador in a "stash house" in Dexter, New Mexico. ICE reports that amongst these victims abused by transnational criminals include 6 teenagers.

“As the deplorable conditions of this stash house demonstrate, transnational criminal organizations (TCOs) have no respect for human life,” Jack P. Staton, special agent in charge of ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) El Paso, said in a press release. “Human smuggling is a multi-billion-dollar enterprise, and the individuals being smuggled are viewed as cargo by the criminal networks. HSI continues to investigate this organization and will hold them accountable for their illicit activities.”

ICE charged Guatemalan national Tomas Miguel Mateo with a "federal criminal complaint with harboring the illegal aliens and with unlawfully re-entering the United States after having been previously deported." 

According to the press release, conditions for these illegal aliens were absolutely atrocious as dozens of people were cramped into 20 by 20 foot shed. Shockingly, one sign in Spanish in the stash was posted saying “Don’t use the bathroom.”

ICE, an organization the far-left seeks to abolish, regularly saves victims of human trafficking. According to ICE's website, "In fiscal year 2016, HSI initiated 1,029 investigations with a nexus to human trafficking and recorded 1,952 arrests, 1,176 indictments, and 631 convictions; 435 victims were identified and assisted."
