Border Patrol Required to Admit Known Gang Members into the US

F702B042859C793FC1CB4A565D9E7C2A_584_584Editor’s Note: These young gang members are the last people that should be let in. They have already been initiated into their gangs and have a lifetime ahead of them to commit crimes in the U.S.

Border patrol agents say gang members are crossing our border illegally, turning themselves in and getting the green light into our country.

They are unaccompanied minors.

If they don’t have a criminal record inside the U.S., then they are processed as any other juvenile.

It doesn’t matter if they have tattoos or even admit they are gang members.

“They are confirmed either by tattoos or by self admission. But since they have no criminal record in the United States, and they happen to be minors, they’re reunited with their family in the U.S.,” said Border Patrol Union Representative, Chris Cabrera.
