Border Patrol agents “recognize the gang-affiliated tattoos of minors crossing the border..”

President Barack Obama’s administration is knowingly allowing illegal immigrant gangsters from Mexico and Central America into the United States, and some are even being reunited with their family members.
The gang members reportedly belong to some of the most dangerous gangs in Central America and Mexico, like MS-13, but Border Patrol agents are handcuffed, especially if the illegal immigrants are deemed to be “minors.”
According to National Review, Border Patrol agents who “recognize the gang-affiliated tattoos of minors crossing the border must treat them the same as anybody else.” An Arizona Border Control agent said that it was upsetting that a lot of the gang members are “16 or 17 years old and a lot of them are not going to face deportation.”
Chris Cabrera, the vice president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 3307 in the Rio Grande Valley told National Review that Border Patrol agents have reunited dangerous gang members with their families in the United States. He asked, “If he’s a confirmed gang member in his own country, why are we letting him in here?”
“I’ve heard people come in and say, ‘You’re going to let me go, just like you let my mother go, just like you let my sister go. You’re going to let me go as well, and the government’s going to take care of us,’” Cabrera told the outlet. “Until we start mandatory detentions, mandatory removals, I don’t think anything is going to change. As a matter of fact, I think it’s going to get worse.”
In a letter to House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) on Thursday, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, as Breitbart News reported, wondered “what consideration is being given – and what is being done – to determine if any of these illegal aliens have criminal histories or gang affiliations.”
Brewer mentioned that “MS-13, one of the world’s most notorious international gangs, has strong ties to several of the Central American countries from which these aliens are arriving.”
“The administration’s refusal to properly verify that violent criminals are not among those entering the United States shows an alarming lack of concern for our homeland’s security,” she wrote. “As a nation, we cannot sit back and allow this policy to continue.”
Illegal immigrant children — including gang members from Mexico and Central America — are making the trip to America because they have been told — through word of mouth, in newspapers, and even on television and radio commercials — that the Obama administration will not deport them, especially if they are minors, once they arrive in the United States.
