MS-13, other gang members exploit migrant wave to cross into US

Members of MS-13 and other gangs are slipping across the southern border, hidden in the waves of thousands of Mexican and Central American migrants who continue to surge into the US.

Border Patrol officials detained five gang members in the last week near frontier crossings at Laredo, TX., said US Border Patrol Agent Chief Matthew Hudak in a tweet Friday. 

“They attempt to evade arrest by exploiting the influx of migrants attempting to enter our country,” Hudak tweeted. 

Among those caught was a member of MS-13 and two 18th Street gang members, he said.
