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.

Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato
America must bolster its border security.
The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.
Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior.
According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang.
“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.
Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.
With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue.
As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
