MS-13 Immigrates by Posing as or Using Minors

The vile, violent gang MS-13 immigrates into this country by exploiting loopholes that President Trump wants ended.

Here is Donald Trump describing how MS-13 immigrates into the U.S. and uses the policies involving children to do it:

Obviously not all immigrants, or even illegal immigrants, are members of MS-13. On the contrary, they are brutally and often fatally victimized by the gang. And, as the President said, we need to close these policy loopholes to make everyone safer.

Breitbart reports, “9 Times MS-13 Gang Members Posed as Minors, Used Kids to Enter U.S. Illegally.

President Trump has repeatedly asked the Republican-controlled Congress to close immigration loopholes in order to end the trafficking and smuggling of children across the border by illegal aliens who hope to be released into the interior of the United States.

While Trump has enacted a “zero tolerance” policy at the border — where all adult border crossers, no matter if they are traveling with children, are criminally prosecuted — Democrats have rallied around ending all immigration enforcement.

As Breitbart News noted, every Senate Democrat has signed onto legislation that would end all border enforcement, a plan that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said should be called the “Child Trafficking Encouragement Act,” as it sets free every adult border crosser so long as they smuggle a child across the border with them.

In detail, the White House provided Breitbart News with nine examples where MS-13 gang members […] used these immigration loopholes to try to enter the U.S. […].

Here are three of the examples:

On May 2, 2018, Border Patrol apprehended an adult male who was traveling with his one-year-old son. He is a known MS-13 gang member who was previously removed from the country in 2012. The minor child was released to his uncle.

[…]

On December 7, 2013, Border Patrol apprehended an unaccompanied alien child. He was given a Notice to Appear and released into the interior of the United States. On September 2016, the subject was one of 11 MS-13 gang members involved in the killing of teenage girls in Long Island, NY.

[…]

On May 1, 2018, Border Patrol apprehended a known female MS-13 gang member, who was traveling with her minor daughter. After being processed, both mother and child were released under their own recognizance on May 19, 2018.
