The Smoking Gun reports that immigration agents received a tip from the National Human Trafficking Resource Center last year and removed V.M. from the George's property.

She was also allegedly denied health benefits, sick days or any personal time off from her labors.I guess you would expect this sort of thing in a 3rd world country, where the mega-rich rampantly exploit the poor and unfortunate with impunity.
