Authorities Free Captive Immigrants in Arizona

Rumbo, news, Posted: Apr 10, 2009

Seven people suspected of human trafficking were detained by authorities after they found 31 undocumented immigrants held captive in a Glendale, Ariz. house. The captives were being held for ransom by coyotes, smugglers who bring people across the U.S.-Mexico border, officials said. The immigrants had reportedly been threatened at gun point with electric shocks and, in the case of one woman, with rape, if their families refused to pay between $1,500 and $10,000 for their release.
