American border officials cannot refuse to let in gang members who either sneak in or show up at ports of entry along the U.S.-Mexico border, government officials said Tuesday as they pleaded for congressional action to close loopholes gang members are exploiting.
When they come to our border I have to let them in, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said at a White House roundtable.
This is unique to our country, and its got to change, President Trump chimed in.
Mr. Trump has made highlighting and combatting MS-13 a major tenet of his immigration policy, and his aides bolstered his case with graphic stories and photos of victims of MS-13 violence.
The reason MS-13 is so massive in our country, the reason why they have 10,000 members in 40 states and the District of Columbia, is because many of those gang members have illegally entered our country, Mr. Cronan said. MS-13 can simply replenish its jail population by sending more and more members across our borders.
30 percent of MS-13 members arrested in recent anti-gang operations came to the U.S. as part of the surge of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) that overwhelmed the Obama administration in its final years in office.
Agent Melendez said of 40,810 UAC who arrived in the U.S. and were granted initial entry in 2017, more than half of them are males ages 13 to 17 from the Central American countries that serve as the source for MS-13.

Prepare to defend yourselves
Good God, this us beyond fu*ked up!!!!
THIS IS INSANE!....................
Disappear them...Who’s to know?
“When they come to our border I have to let them in, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said”
You have a gang member at your window, so you have to let them in?
Thank a liberal.
Nice try but the Hussien administration willingly brought them here. Overwhelmed my A$$.
“There’s nothing I can do, they have as much right to be here as any other illegal alien.”
WTF? So in other words, one year in with the Trump admin, and we literally do not have a border, much less a wall.
What specific loopholes? How did they become part of our laws?
When they come to our border I have to let them in,
That’s the definition of not having a border.
I visit a lot of classrooms in our town. The number of Spanish only speakers is exploding from what I see. We lived in Arizona for a number of years, and my children attended schools populated with mostly Mexican Americans and Mexicans. Those children could converse in English. I am in Alabama and seeing about 25%-ish Spanish speakers, some of whom speak no English. These children are disruptive and unprepared for school in this country. It is evil to do this to our citizens. And it is sad to see these angry children thrust into a world in which the adults do not have the time to deal with them and the five children who didn’t take their meds that day and to learn another language in order to teach them.
But where are these fresh off the boat or over the fence people coming from?
There is a reason why they are so hard to apprehend and that is that everyone is terrified of them. People won’t even say the name.
... and Trump AGREES! Sure he said it must change and all but he still appears to agrees with her statement. Incredible!
Don’t let them in ! Put a 40 cal between their eyes
Apparently “unaccompanied minors” don’t even have to sneak across, they merely have to declare themselves as such and they are protected... do I understand this correctly?
And if so, how did this become law?
When it comes to gang members:
Shoot, shovel, and shut up.
