Notorious MS-13 Gang Members ‘Exploiting the Influx of Migrants’ at Southern Border

The coverage of gangs such as MS-13 has taken a backseat to Al Qaeda, ISIS and COVID-19.

In only one week, five gang members were arrested by U.S. Border Patrol agents in Texas’ Laredo Sector. Members of both gangs were apprehended. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) Chief Patrol Agent Matthew J. Hudak tweeted “they attempt to evade arrest by exploiting the influx of migrants attempting to enter our country.”

Senior Advisor for Government Relations at The Heritage Foundation Mike Howell told The Foreign Desk “gangs see a wide-open border and a Biden Administration who not only won’t remove them but has promised them everything from government benefits to a U.S. passport.”

News of the gang member arrests come just as Biden announced he is raising the refugee admissions cap to four times greater than during the Trump administration. Reports of repeat violent criminals and offenders crossing the border have also been rampant.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), MS-13’s motto is “kill, rape, control.” InSight Crime and the Center for Latin American and Latino Studies describe the gang’s tactics as “brutal and purposeful.”
