Violent transnational gangs 'recruiting unaccompanied minors at Border Security facilities'

Members of some of the United States' most notorious street gangs have infiltrated shelters housing illegal immigrant minors from Central America and are recruiting them, say Homeland Security sources.

An estimated 57,000 minors from Central America have flooded across the border from Mexico to the U.S. in recent months, and gang leaders are reportedly filling their ranks from among them.

Transnational gangs such as the Mara Salvatruca, also known as MS-13, and the 18th Street gang are using established juvenile members from Central America to cross the border and recruit other children to the cartels, say sources. Recruiting drive: There are reports that gangs are trying to recruit young immigrants from Border Protection facilities where they're being held

According to Fox News, Border Control agents have witnessed gang members using a Red Cross phone bank at the facility at Nogales, Arizona, to 'recruit, enlist and pressure' other minors into crossing the border.

Shawn Moran, vice president of the National Border Control Patrol Council, a union which represents border agents, says agents have witnessed the recruiting process.

The Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement said earlier this week that they have no knowledge or evidence that gangs are recruiting immigrant minors.

'We know it’s happening because agents are telling us,' Moran told Fox News.

He said agents have overheard conversations in which recruits are given phone numbers to call after crossing the border in order to contact gang members.

Ironically, many immigrants flooding across the southern border of the U.S. say they're fleeing violent gangs in Central America.

Experts, however, say those gangs are actually a byproduct of U.S. policies in the 1990s that sent many immigrants back to Central America after they had been indoctrinated into gang culture in this country.

How long will it be before we read about illegal minors being found in sex-traffiking houses in the US?

Wow! Experts! I guess that settles it! No other answer is possible!

Just a poor migrant child looking to escape violence in his home country and seek a better life in the United States. I’m sure his parents were crying when they put him on the train to the US. If he didn’t kill them before he left, that is.

"I can't believe this is happening. It's a nightmare."

So say we all. And the incredible thing is that it's going on and on and on.....and no one is doing anything about it....and where are the billions coming from that are financing these hordes pouring across the border?

We are in the grip of madmen...God help up.

I hate when I’m right....

The gangs are going to be recruiting these “children” just as colleges recruit blue-chip football players.

Border Security facilities, closed to Congressmen, are open to street gangs looking to recruit new members. Did I miss something, or is this the new reality?

Actually, the opposite is true.

The violent Central American thugs who participated in the various Central American insurgencies and revolutions coming up to America after the fall of the USSR and Cuba illegally started gangs in the US based on their violent communist .

The gang members were vets of the civil wars and had ties to Cuba and the drug cartels and revolutionary terror groups who help train and organize them.

Bull!
DHS, which was created for the express purpose of making sure the various branches of law enforcement share pertinent information, have instead added additional layers of secrecy.

If the poor migrant child did kill them he can throw himself on the mercy of the court because he's now an orphan.

Implicit in the author’s explanation is the notion that previous deportation exacerbated the problem.

I wholly reject that reasoning and believe the theory was contrived to pursue an anti-American, pro-invasion agenda.

By and large, Latin America is responsible for their own social ills, many of which derive from their widespread socialist leanings as you point out.

From NumbersUSA...

We are paying for a toll-free number to the Capitol Switchboard to make it as easy as possible for all of you. Here it is:

Call toll-free: 1-855-827-2353

Even though most Democrats in the House are currently supporting any kind of amnesty they can get, Democrats as well as Republicans need to be called today. It is important for Democrats -- three months before elections -- to hear just how unpopular these amnesties are. More than anybody else in Congress in recent years, Sen. Sessions has stood up for immigration policies in the interest of American wage-earners and their families. We definitely owe it to him -- and to our national community -- to respond with a phone call to our U.S. Representative today.....

...Make one or more of the following points to the congressional staffer who answers the phone:

1. You object to Pres. Obama by himself giving another mass amnesty to illegal aliens. The news media are reporting that he plans to do it soon, and you are outraged.

2. Congress should not give the President any of the money he wants for the Border Surge unless the bill prohibits the President from issuing any more work permits to illegal aliens without congressional approval. Ask if the Representative will promise to insist on that.

3. Tell them you support H.R.5160 by Rep. Blackburn that blocks any more go-it-alone amnesties by a President.

Thanks for the heads-up.

What is completely ignored by "advocates" is that the border invasion is VERY aggressive criminal behavior w/ frightening prospects for Americans.

Criminologists analyzing the border invasion would pinpoint dangerous precedents: patterns of sinister behavior---individuals from savage cultures w/ a dangerous propensity for violent crimes and serial criminal activity.
