News From the Border

Providing the news from a different front but from a war that we must win as well! I recognize the poverty and desperate conditions that many Latinos live in. We, as the USA, have a responsibility to do as much as we can to reach out to aid and assist spiritually with the Gospel and naturally with training, technology and resources. But poverty gives no one the right to break the laws of another sovereign nation.

Laredo Sector Border Patrol Agents Arrest 18th Street Gang Member

Monday, March 31, 2008

Laredo, Texas – Border Patrol agents from the Laredo North station arrested a member of a Central American gang Sunday.

Agents apprehended a man at the Texas Travel Information Center located at the 18-mile marker on Interstate Highway 35 north of Laredo.

The 22-year-old man was identified as an illegal alien from El Salvador. Agents discovered distinctive tattoos on his ring finger, upper arm and the inside of his lower lip. The tattoos identify him as a member of the 18th Street gang of El Salvador. The gang is a rival of another Salvadoran group known as the Mara Salvatrucha or “MS-13” gang.

The man was processed for removal proceedings.
