Last month I told you that Border Patrol agents report being told to let in “children” with gang tattoos. I said then: “Obama is so invested in the idea of allowing illegals into the country that he really doesn’t care if any of them are gang members or even footsoldiers for the cartels.” I added:
[T]he cartels know the U.S. Government is doing this. So if they can find willing 16- or 17-year-old footsoldiers — and they can — the cartels can deliver those footsoldiers across the border, with the assistance of the U.S. Government.
I have absolutely no doubt that this is happening. Drug cartels are using Obama’s policies to deliver footsoldiers into our country.
Was I crazy? No . . . as it turns out, I was right:
With the system being overwhelmed, Border Patrol agents are concerned about minors who have admitted to being MS-13 members, a brutal street gang from El Salvador that has been successful in infiltrating American communities. Agents are also concerned about minors who have committed acts like torture and murder in their home countries before heading north to the United States.
“We have six minors in Nogales who have admitted to killing and doing grievous bodily injuries. One admitted to killing as young as eight years old,” an agent tells Townhall anonymously for fear of losing his job for speaking out. “They are being held for placement in the U.S.”
By U.S. legal standards many gang members operating in Central American countries and traveling north are classified as minors due to being under the age of 18. However, many young males are actively engaged in violent cartel and criminal activity, yet are treated as children when processed through the Department of Human Services or Department of Homeland Security systems.
But they’re just innocent children! And we love children!
Fortunately, they’re all being essentially released into the country, to face chimerical deportation proceedings that will happen in approximately never.
They probably won’t kill you, so why would you care?
