Border Crisis

CRIMINAL CARE PACKAGE: Venezuela Empties Prisons, Violent Criminals Head to U.S. Border

Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse at the southern border.

According to an exclusive report from Breitbart News, a recent Department of Homeland Security intelligence report shows the Venezuelan government, under the leadership of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is freeing violent prison inmates — including some convicted of murder, rape, and extortion.

They are now making their way to the U.S. southern border.

From Breitbart News:

The intelligence report warns agents the freed prisoners have been seen within migrant caravans traveling from Tapachula, Mexico toward the U.S.-Mexico border as recently as July. The source, not authorized to speak to the media, told Breitbart Texas the move is reminiscent of a similar action taken by Cuban dictator Fidel Castro during the Mariel boat lift in the 1980s.

The report does not state whether the released prison inmates were traveling as a cohesive group but does state it was commonly shared knowledge among migrants traveling to the United States within a caravan in July that many of the Venezuelan migrants in the group were convicts and included hardened criminals.

The report does not specify that the release of the convicts — understanding they would head to the United States — could be a purposeful geopolitical move specifically intended to impact U.S. national security. Another information gap cited in the report acknowledges the unknown role the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (SEBIN), Venezuela’s equivalent to the CIA, may have played in the deliberate releases.

Fox News reports a dozen migrants whose names are on the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Database were captured in the month of August —a month that saw 203,000 migrant encounters logged.
