INVASION: Border Patrol Arrests Known MS-13 Thug Near Alpine, Texas

On Monday, March 9, 2020 U.S. Border Patrol officials arrested a man near Alpine, Texas that is a member of the notorious Mara-Salvatrucha, or MS-13, gang.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection revealed that Border Patrol agents caught 16 people they believed entered the U.S. illegally after tracking them for eight hours through rough terrain.

Irving Diaz-Flores was one of the people identified among those apprehended, the CBP stated.

Diaz-Flores is a citizen of El Salvador with close connections to the MS-13 gang, according to the CBP.

The CBP said Diaz is being prosecuted for entering the U.S. illegally and the others in the group are being processed in accordance to immigration laws on the books.

The CBP reported that the Brewster County Sheriff’s Office helped Border Patrol agents catch the group.

Another day, another apprehension of illegals in America’s already loosely defended border.

This incident again shows why the U.S. government must take border security seriously.

From heavily-armed Mexican drug cartels to violent MS-13 thugs the U.S. is susceptible to criminal actors coming into the country and carrying out heinous acts of violence within U.S. borders.

To prevent the growth of Hispanic drug gangs and similar criminal elements, the U.S. government must fully secure the American border.
