Border Patrol agents arrested a previously-deported criminal gang member after the man illegally climbed a border fence to re-enter the U.S. in California. The agents assigned to the El Centro Border Patrol Station received electronic notification that a man was climbing the International Border fence in the southern California community of Calexico. The Mexican national was making the illegal border crossing about a mile west of the Calexico West Port of Entry, according to information obtained by Breitbart Texas from U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials. The man made the crossing in the dark at about 9:30 on Wednesday night, officials stated. Border Patrol agents quickly responded to the scene and observed the man running away from the fence towards the downtown area where he would attempt to blend in. This is an area where at least eight Border Patrol agents have been assaulted by illegal aliens since the new fiscal year began in October, Breitbart Texas previously reported. Agents took the man into custody and transported him to the El Centro station for processing. While conducting a records check on the illegal alien, agents discovered he had previously been deported for criminal convictions. They also learned he was a member of the “Sureño” gang. The Sureño gang is a nationwide group of loosely affiliated Latino gangs. The gang is commonly referred to as Sureño 13 or Sureño X3, according to the Sureño 13 website. It originated as a prison gang in southern California and has since spread to all parts of the United States. The gang is reported to be involved in drug trafficking, ripping off other gangs’ drug shipments, prostitution, robberies, murders, debt collection, and extortion. The gang member was identified by officials only as as a 25-year-old Mexican national. He was placed in custody pending prosecution for felony re-entry after removal. “Our Border Patrol Agents do a great job of enforcing immigration laws, but they also excel in ensuring that our communities are safe from these types of criminals,” Chief Patrol Agent Rodney S. Scott said in a written statement.
They do indeed. But, those poor Border Patrol doing the Lord’s work on our border need a LOT of help..and I suspect that help is on the way come January 20th when the new President takes office. Just sayin.. Please consider this today’s glaring example of why it is absolutely critical that we BUILD THE WALL NOW!!!…and put U.S. Army National Guard troops physically ON the border with Mexico. Then, those troops should remain ON the border to prevent would be crossers from stepping one foot on U.S. soil (where they immediately get all sorts of legal protections and handouts that we-the-actual tax-paying-citizens pay for) until that wall/fence is finally built above and below ground, to prevent tunneling…however long that takes. Simultaneously, we need to be deporting illegals already here by the hundreds of thousands (and yes you read that correctly), paying particular attention to known gang members, already convicted criminal aliens (like this piece of garbage), and those determined by an immigration judge to be deported…regardless of age or gender. And that’s just for starters, folks! To do anything less is NOT in America’s national security, or economic, interests. Of course here at The Daily Buzz we also support legislative efforts such as Bill O.’s so-called “Kate’s Law” and efforts to crack down on social security fraud, as well as efforts to crack down on employers who knowingly hire illegal aliens. But, securing our southern border needs to be our nation’s #1 national security domestic priority.
