    According to Border Patrol sources, violent MS-13 gang members are using the Nogales processing center in Arizona as a recruitment hub and as a transfer point for gang members to get into the United States. The Red Cross has set up phone banks inside the processing center so unaccompanied minors can make phone calls to family members inside the United States and back home in Central America. According to sources, those phones are also being used by MS-13 members to communicate with gang members already in the United States and operating in cities like Atlanta, New York and Chicago. Further,...

    Immigration: Border Patrol sources say some of the thousands of "children" flowing across the Texas frontier are Mara Salvatrucha's gangster enforcers. It figures: No one benefits more from Obama's open-door policies. At the Murrieta town hall meeting last week, hundreds of illegals in Mexican soccer jerseys protesting the town's refusal to take busloads of illegal immigrants had an odd man among them, wearing a suit with a sign around his neck saying he was an illegal.

    Despite Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson vowing to "stem the tide" of unaccompanied illegal minors across the southern border with Mexico, thousands more are expected to enter the United States by the end of the year. With the system being overwhelmed, Border Patrol agents are concerned about minors who have admitted to being MS-13 members, a brutal street gang from El Salvador that has been successful in infiltrating American communities. Agents are also concerned about minors who have committed acts like torture and murder in their home countries before heading north to the United States. "We have six minors in...

Earlier this month when Mark Glaze stepped down as executive director of Michael Bloomberg’s “Everytown for Gun Safety,” he told the Wall Street Journal, “when a mass shooting happens…nothing that we have to offer would have stopped that mass shooting (in Santa Barbara).” Late last month, Washington CeaseFire President Ralph...

She was sitting with 12 other people, mostly children, who had just made their way from Reynosa, Mexico, across the Rio Grande by the Anzalduas port of entry in Texas.

    When 43-year-old Silvester Padilla Romero from Tucson was caught at the U.S.-Mexico border with more than 545 pounds of marijuana in his truck, federal agents were quick to pass on his case. A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent said that federal prosecutors would "decline such a case due to a medical condition that the driver of the vehicle containing the contraband was claiming to have." It is unclear, however, what "condition" Padilla has, if any. Nogales International reported that since federal prosecutors declined the case due to "a mental condition," Padilla was convicted in a local court instead....

    AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has released the updated Texas Gang Threat Assessment, which was developed to provide a broad overview of gang activity in the state of Texas. Gangs continue to pose a substantial threat to public safety in Texas and are responsible for a disproportionate amount of crime in our communities. Many gangs in Texas continue to work with Mexican cartels to smuggle drugs, weapons, people and cash across the border. The relationships between some gangs and cartels have evolved over the past year due in part to volatility and changes in cartel structures...
