A self-identified MS-13 gang member arrested over the weekend told Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that he was part of the caravan of immigrants trying to enter the U.S. Agents working the El Centro Sector crossed paths with the man eastward of the Calexico Port of Entry in California on Saturday around 6 p.m., the agency said in a news release. Border Patrol agents questioned the man, who they “suspected of being in the United States illegally,” upon which he revealed he was a Honduran citizen and part of MS-13, CBP said. “The man also told agents he traveled to the United States border with a large group of people from Central America intending on filing for asylum in the United States,” the news release said. The individual was later identified as Jose Villalobos-Jobel, 29, who will be held until he’s ultimately sent back to Honduras, CBP said. “As President Trump and Secretary Nielsen warned, over the last few weeks we have identified over 600 known criminals and gang members in the caravan,” the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement. “We are now predictably seeing members of the caravan – which includes criminals – show up at the border and claim asylum. These threats are only going to increase in light of illegitimate judicial injunctions and loopholes created by Congress.”
President Trump was criticized by Dems and the dominantly liberal mainstream media when he said MS-13 and other bad actors were in this so-called “caravan of migrants.” Apparently he was exactly right. Of course this story isn’t being reported by those liberal news agencies, as it undermines their narrative. Typical..

A team of American lawyers is being deployed to Mexico to help advise members of the new migrant caravan on their options as they try to reach the U.S. and, in many cases, to demand asylum. The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights, a Los Angeles-based organization, said it wanted to be proactive in getting assistance to the caravan, which has reached Mexico City. “Our immigration attorneys are part of a humane, compassionate, and concrete response for migrants,” said Luis Perez, legal services director for the group. While the elections have pushed the caravan from the front pages this week, thousands of Central Americans are still intent on reaching the U.S. They’ve camped in Mexico City where, according to local news reports, they are debating the route they’ll take as they head north, trying to reach the U.S.-Mexico border. President Trump has deployed more than 5,000 active-duty U.S. troops to the American side of the border, where they are hardening the ports of entry with razor wire fencing and working to support Border Patrol agents in the field. But it’s not clear the troops will have much effect on migrants who intend to show up at the ports of entry and demand asylum, exploiting what the administration calls “loopholes” that allow them to gain a foothold here even though few will eventually be deemed qualified. Mr. Trump last month said he would sign an executive order this week clamping down on asylum claims, though he didn’t give any details.
THIS is why it is imperative that these individuals NOT be allowed to step one foot on U.S. soil. Once they do, then they’ll get all sorts of legal protection and other freebies that we, the actual tax-paying legal citizens of America, will have to pay for.
