Violent gang members were arrested at the U.S.-Mexico border, reportedly using the influx of migrants to try to sneak into the country.
MS-13 gang members, among other violent gangs, have apparently been using migrant caravans to sneak across the U.S.-Mexico border.
Last week, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Chief Matthew Hudak tweeted that officials recently captured five gang members in Laredo, Texas.
“5 gang members in 7 days! #Laredo Sector #USBP agents arrested a total of 5 gang members in the last week, including an #ms13 & two 18th Street gang members. They attempt to evade arrest by exploiting the influx of migrants attempting to enter our country,” Hudak tweeted.
The Daily Wire reported that MS-13 and 18th Street gang members have committed murders in multiple East Coast states, namely New York.
While I’m grateful that search & rescue saved many from drowning, @POTUS must address this crisis that is spinning out of control & stop encouraging more unlawful immigration.

In addition to the huge influx of illegal immigrants, violent criminals have apparently come along for the ride. President Biden’s lack of control at the border and open invitation to migrants have only stoked the fire.
Democrat leaders need to find a way to control the border and let people know that illegal immigration cannot be tolerated. Otherwise, we will continue to see more and more criminals enter our country, and more and more migrants will be trapped in inhumane conditions at the border.
