Immigration officials are investigating a report of human trafficking at a home owned by Saudi Arabia in northern Virginia.

‘Homeland Security Investigations DC did encounter two potential victims of trafficking and the investigation is ongoing,’ a D.C.-based spokesman for ICE/Homeland Security investigations told NBCNews4.
