Agents assigned to the McAllen station apprehended four Salvadoran nationals identified as members of the Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang.
McAllen agents also arrested a Salvadoran female traveling with a minor child. Her records showed a previous arrest for assault and confirmed that she is an MS-13 gang member.
McAllen agents also arrested a Salvadoran national near Mission, Texas, and a Guatemalan national near La Joya, Texas, both members of the 18th Street gang.
Not far from there, in Falfurrias, agents arrested a Salvadoran national whose record checks confirmed that he is an MS-13 gang member.
Kingsville agents apprehended a group of five illegal aliens attempting to circumvent the Sarita Checkpoint. During processing, agents noticed one of the subjects had several MS-13 affiliated tattoos. Record checks on the Salvadoran man confirmed his status as an MS-13 gang member.
This is the Donald J Trump and Jeff Sessions effect. Say what you want about Jeff Sessions, and I agree he is fairly weak/disinterested in “political criminals” but oh boy is he hella tough on violent criminals and gangs!! Sessions has absolutely unleashed the Department of Justice and Donald Trump has let loose our law enforcement on these violent gangs and illegals.
I predict that before Trump leaves office, we will see the numbers of MS13 in this country reduced to it’s lowest level in decades. We will also see a massive decrease in crime and gang activity across the United States as MS13 is just one of the many gangs being successfully targeted and dismantled by the Trump Administration right now.
Keep it up President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. We will do our part to send more MAGA supporters to Congress so we can get our immigration officials all the funding and tools they need to effectively execute their mission to protect this country.
God Bless America.
