Every day, we hear the screams to high heaven that the criminal element of those illegally coming into the U.S. is minimal. Yet at least 25 people affiliated with the MS-13 gang were just deported from Mexico. They were discovered concealed among 1,600 Central American migrants just on the other side of our border Tuesday.
Deport Illegal Immigrants – Embedded MS-13
That is not President Trump‘s claim, but rather that of the U.S. Border Patrol.
The caravan initially arrived in Piedras Negras, Mexico, two weeks ago across the border from Eagle Pass, Texas. Instituto Nacional de Migración officials were able to identify 10 gang members from Mara Salvatrucha, also known as MS-13.
After several disturbances with Mexican police, 15 additional MS-13 gang members were discovered and deported, according to INM Media Deputy Director Aline Juarez, interviewed on Fox News.
Above and beyond that disturbing number among the “peaceful migrants,” a total of 70 Central American migrants have been deported to their home countries. Another 1,500 have been granted humanitarian visas to move freely within Mexico.
Illegal Immigrants Cause Problems
Mexico’s official state news agency, Notimex, reported that deportations came after “issues” at a shelter in the border city of Piedras Negras. The shelter in question housed hundreds of Central American migrants. It will be closed Wednesday.
Furthermore, Coahuila State Public Safety Secretary Jose Luis Pliego, speaking with the AP, said more than 400 migrants have been taken to neighboring states such as Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas to be incorporated into the workforce.
That leaves multitudes to seek other options in their attempt to cross into the United States. The left portrays this as “racist,” while the Mexican government finds the entire situation troublesome and costly. They have no hesitation in sending the criminal element back to their home countries.
