BREITBART — A Mexican woman living in Texas has been convicted of labor trafficking two women she brought illegally to the United States from Mexico and forcing them to work for her, without pay, for about 14 years.
According to the Justice Department, late Friday a federal jury convicted Olga Sandra Murra aka “Olga Sandra Capon-Meneses”— a 64 year-old woman who immigrated to the U.S from Mexico in 1997 — on two counts of forced labor and two counts of harboring an illegal alien.
Prosecutors explained how Murra illegally brought “V.R.” — a Mexican woman in her 30s — with her when she first moved to the U.S. and a year later, in 1998, arranged for another Mexican woman, “I.G.” to be illegally brought to the U.S. as well.
Murra kept the women from 1997 and 1998 to April 2011 — holding one or both of them and their identification documents — in El Paso and Fort Worth, where she used V.R. and I.G. as employees in her housecleaning business.
The Justice Department said that Murra forced the women to clean three to four houses a day. When they received pay for the work, Murra confiscated it. V.R. and I.G. were also required to clean Murra’s personal residence and prepare her meals.
In holding them, Murra sought to convince I.G. and V.R. that she was a voice of God, requiring the pair to listen to recordings of her reading and explaining the meaning different Bible verses as they worked.
