US Questioning More Than 100 From 'Stash House'

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (AP) - U.S. immigration authorities are questioning more than 100 people presumed to be in the country illegally after they were discovered crammed into a small house in south Houston.
    
Five men also are in custody and being questioned after the discovery Wednesday of the so-called stash hash.
    
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials say charges against the five include hostage taking and conspiracy to harbor illegal immigrants.
    
The 115 people were found jammed into a filthy 1,500-square-foot home with no hot water and just one toilet. It was not immediately clear how the people got there, but police say one woman told them she'd been there 15 days.
    
Authorities said Thursday that they weren't yet certain whether the people would be deported. Most are from El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico.
