MCLEAN, VA – The Saudi Arabian embassy staff may have forgotten that Virginia does not have slavery anymore.

Agents for Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement took away two Filipino women from this Saudi diplomatic mansion in McLean, Virginia, on suspicion they are victims of domestic servitude.

The women are apparently employed as domestic workers. Both women speak English, and it’s reported they told investigators they have passports and are in the United States legally.

The Saudi Armed Forces Office owns the property.

ICE agents said they removed the women to protect their safety if, in fact, the accusations turn out to be true.

No charges have been filed, and even if someone with the Saudi government is accused of a crime, there may not be anything ice can do about it because of diplomatic immunity.
