It's No Big Deal ... They're Slaves

Immigration officials are investigating a possible case of human trafficking at a home in McLean, Va., owned by the Saudi government, according to various media sources.

Department of Homeland Security agents rescued two women, possible victims of domestic servitude, from a Saudi diplomatic compound early Wednesday morning, a local NBC affiliate reports. 
One woman tried to escape by "squeezing through a gap in the front gate as it was closing," according to NBC. The two women, reportedly from the Philippines, worked at the Saudi Embassy in D.C. and say they were mistreated, State Department officials told CNN.
