Yesterday, it was announced that 22 alleged members of the infamous MS-13 gang were apprehended and indicted by law enforcement after being charged with a string of brutal murders and other criminal actions, including a gruesome display at the Angeles National Forest where several people were hacked to death.
The U.S. attorney’s office announced that 19 of the 22 individuals named in the indictment came to the country illegally from Honduras and El Salvador, two of the countries commonly linked to the Soros-funded migrant caravans that have contributed greatly to the ongoing border crisis. They arrived within the last four years.
“These gang members sought out young victims in their teens and early 20s who were new to this country. Many had recently immigrated from El Salvador and Honduras. They were alone, looking to fit in with others from native countries,” Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey said.
“But instead, they met their demise quickly at the hands of gang members who preyed upon them,” she added.
Perhaps the worst victims of this illegal alien crime spree were four individuals murdered with machetes, baseball bats and knifes in the Angeles National Forest. Paul Delacourt, who works as assistant director in the FBI’s Los Angeles field office, claims the extreme violence was deployed by the gang “to exert their dominance in Los Angeles as opposed to maintaining allegiance to the Mexican Mafia.”
The LA Metropolitan Task Force on Violent Gangs, which is a coalition consisting of members of the FBI, LAPD, and the LA County Sheriff’s Department, conducted the investigation against the MS-13 thugs, which resulted in a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) case that was unsealed to the public on Monday.
“We have now taken off the streets nearly two dozen people associated with the most violent arm of MS-13 in Los Angeles, where the gang is believed to have killed 24 people over the past two years,” said United States Attorney Nick Hanna.
“This investigation has been an unqualified success. The collaborative law enforcement effort solved several murder cases and dealt a severe blow to members of the gang who engaged in acts of brutality not seen in the region for over 20 years,” he added.
In addition to the murder charges, the gang members are also accused of conspiracy and drug-trafficking.
“These are newer entrants, so they’re making their bones with the gang, it’s just how it is. They want to make a name for themselves, and those are the people who are generally the most violent members of street gangs,” said Claude Arnold, who used to operate the LA field office for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
The suspected criminals listed in the indictment include: German Hernandez, Angel Guzman, Ever Morales, Fernando Parada, Jose Baquiax Alvarez, Kevin Gomez, Kevin Arteaga, Edgar Velasquez, Walter Chavez Larin, Yefri Revelo, Wilfredo Vides, Gerardo Alvarado, Roberto Carlos Mendez Cruz, Bryan Alberto Ordones, Roberto Alejandro Corado Ortiz, Edwin Issac Mendez, Josue Balmore Flores Castro, Luis Arturo Gonzalez, Edwin Martinez, Steven Emmanuel Linares, Marco Antonio Ramos, and Erick Eduardo Rosales Arias.
When the open border radicals of the Democratic Party demonize ICE and border patrol, they are often helping violent gangs of illegal immigrants escape justice.
Up to 200 Smuggled Illegals Run Out of 18-Wheeler Truck in Texas
200 illegal aliens escaped at once.
As many as two hundred illegal aliens fled from an 18-wheeler truck in Bexar County, Texas when the vehicle stopped at a QT gas station on Thursday, presenting a considerable public safety and security threat with the majority of the aliens still unaccounted for.
Witnesses described seeing a group of migrants that amounted to well above a hundred. The migrants fled an 18-wheeler truck near IH-37 and Loop 1604 at 6PM on Thursday, just as the winter storm in Texas hit the community at full strength.
Sheriff Javier Salazar is describing the migrants as nationals of Honduras and El Salvador. He revealed that the migrants were endangered by the smugglers that had shipped them in a refrigerated truck, with the aliens in danger of suffocating inside the airtight truck compartment.
ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations urged the public to come forward with information regarding the illegals in a statement regarding the incident.
“On Feb. 18, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) responded to a call from Bexar County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) for assistance on a possible human smuggling case involving a semi-tractor trailer discovered in a local gas station parking lot. About 50 individuals both males and females were encountered. The undocumented immigrants, from Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador, are being assisted by community based organizations. HSI special agents interviewed the migrants as part of a criminal investigation, which is ongoing. The status of those encountered is being reviewed. HSI urges anyone with information about this smuggling attempt to call (866) 347-2423.”
Law enforcement believes that the individuals responsible for smuggling the illegals escaped into the nearby woods with the individuals they moved into the United States. Efforts to apprehend the migrant siphon law enforcement resources during a state of emergency, when law-abiding citizens of south Texas are at risk of freezing to death inside their own homes.
The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office spoke of apprehending 50 of the illegal immigrants shortly after the smuggling event, with more than a hundred illegals still loose.
Biden’s “America Last” approach to immigration and border security has immediately spurred a renaissance in human smuggling and illegal immigration, with smugglers advertising open borders to tentative migrants. Even as illegal migration spikes to levels unseen in years, the President instead is evaluating new proposals to convert ICE into a de facto customs agency, leaving the American people without an immigration law enforcement agency.
