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, many teenaged males inside the facility have approached Border Patrol agents and have said gang members have tried to recruit them from shared cells. According to the FBI, MS-13 regularly targets middle and high school students for recruitment.
“The National Border Patrol Council believes there to be serious security issues at the Nogales Processing Center. Agents’ hands are tied due to the policies governing the care and lodging of juveniles and this has allowed gang recruitment and activity to flourish amongst those being detained,” vice president of the National Border Patrol Council Shawn Moran tells Townhall. “Customs and Border Protection needs to do more to ensure that gang members that are in custody at the NPC are identified, prosecuted, and prohibited from benefiting from this crisis.”
Earlier this week an internal Border Patrol summary confirmed at least 16 MS-13 gang members from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala are being housed in the processing center after graffiti was found on bathroom walls. These same gang members admitted to acts of torture and murder in their home countries before heading north to the United States.
“Border Patrol Agents (BPAs) and Customs and Border Protection Officers (CBPOs), assigned to The Nogales Placement Center (NPC), discovered that 16 unaccompanied alien children (13 El Salvadoran males, two Guatelmalan males and one Honduran male) currently being held at the NPC are members of Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13). The MS-13 gang members admitted to their gang associations following a discovery of graffiti at the NPC. Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), and the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) were notified,” the summary states. “Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), and the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) were notified.”
MS-13 members are required to be processed by Border Patrol and then are handed over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, where they are often times placed inside the U.S. and given a court date. They rarely show up. By U.S. legal standards many gang members operating in Central American countries and traveling north are classified as minors due to being under the age of 18. However, many young males are actively engaged in violent cartel and criminal activity, yet are treated as children when processed through the Department of Health and Human Services or Department of Homeland Security systems.

“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.”
And what kind of parent would allow their kids to travel miles on end through Mexico into America to be homeless and put on the streets?
Why is no one asking THAT question? Because then that would destroy their “protect the children” propaganda.
Why is no one investigating the people who sent out those supposed “flyers” stating that these illegals will be free once they cross the border into America and who financed it? Because then the people will find out that it was Barry and his elitists friends who financed and signed off on it, thus destroying their “protect the children” propaganda.
Why is no one investigating these MS-13 gang members and drug cartels who helped these so called “children” across the border and who supposedly put them on “The Beast” trains? (Mark of the Beast anyone) Because that would link Barry and his elitist friends to the drug cartels and destroy their “children” propaganda. By the way, isn’t Obama’s limo called, “The Beast”, too? Imagine that.
Why is no one investigating the agreement made by Barry and the president of Mexico “Southern Border Program” to setup checkpoints and “Regional Visitors Cards”? Because then it would point out that Barry and his elitists friends and the Mexican government were all in on it and thus destroy his “children” propaganda.
Anyone wants to know how nasty thing are going to get just take a gander at this blog now and then to get an idea, El Blog del Narco. It’s all coming to a border state near you. Get out while you still can.
It’s in Spanish.
Ha, yeah, right, get used to that too.
Thanks, Enbe. It translated the article, but not the comments on it.
IMO, from using google translate, there’s not much in the comments but what looks like drug cartel gang bangers dissing each other with a LOT of cursing each other, their mothers, animals, etc, plus some homo porn. There was one comment about US protection of drug cartel criminals, which we already know (CIA, etc). YMMV if you want to do the copy-paste-translate work.
so o made a deal with a narco state. he couldn’t go back on that deal if he wanted to.
Not sure where to paste this but will put here d/t illegal immigrant stuff.
The link only shows the title. No information.
Anyways, here’s another story. 200 illegals were just secretly dumped in Nebraska without anyone knowing.
