A previously deported MS-13 member used an infant as cover during his re-entry attempt. He used the child to pose as a “family unit.”
Border Patrol agents assigned to the Rio Grande Valley Sector encountered a man with a small child after he crossed the Rio Grande River near the border town of Penitas, Texas, late last week. Agents took the man and the child to the McAllen Station for processing, according to U.S. Border Patrol officials.
A records check revealed the Salvadoran man was previously deported from the U.S. The records also indicated that he is an active member of the Mara Salvatrucha gang (MS-13), Border Patrol officials stated.
Border Patrol officials removed the child from the man’s custody. The MS-13 member is being processed for deportation after a previous order of removal was reinstated. Officials said the child will remain in federal custody pending the conclusion of the father’s judicial process.
