Once again highlighting the crisis of open borders, a dangerous gang member was apprehended by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) in Tucson, Arizona after illegally re-entering the United States.
“Alonso Aleman, a 38-year-old Honduran national was arrested by agents patrolling near Lukeville. During processing agents discovered Aleman had numerous removals from the United States, an admitted gang affiliation, and was traveling with a large caravan from Central America through Mexico,” said a CBP press release.
Aleman is a member of the vicious El Salvadoran-based MS-13 gang. Three gang members were arrested on Long Island last week after allegedly stabbing a teenaged boy.
“Aleman will remain in federal custody pending prosecution for criminal immigration violations involving illegal re-entry of previously removed alien,” the press release said. “All persons apprehended by the Border Patrol undergo criminal history checks using biometrics to ensure illegal aliens with criminal histories are positively identified.”
Of course, the number of illegal re-entries could be significantly reduced if our southern border was not completely wide open, and the resources wasted on keeping out previous deportees could be re-allocated to keeping out new illegal aliens.
A previously-deported convicted child molester was apprehended in Calexico, California on Feb. 22. The criminal had served nearly three years in an American prison for open lewdness with a child before being deported back to Mexico.
