United States Border Patrol Agents arrested an MS-13 gang member traveling with the Central American ‘migrant caravan’ this week; saying the man confessed to using the group to illegally enter the country.
“The incident occurred at approximately 6:09 p.m., when agents encountered a man just east of the Calexico Port of Entry suspected of being in the United States illegally,” said an official statement from the CBP.
“After a short interview, the man told agents he is a Honduran citizen and active gang member with the notorious Mara Salvatrucha 13 (MS-13) international crime organization. The man also told agents he traveled to the United States border with a large group of people from Central America intending on filing for asylum in the United States,” the release adds.
Department of Homeland Security officials believe upwards of 500 “criminals” or those who have been previously deported are embedded within the ‘caravan.’

'ANIMAL' RIGHTS? MS-13 Gang Boss BEGS NY Judge for Better Prison Conditions
An alleged drug trafficker and MS-13 gang kingpin begged a judge to improve his current prison conditions at a New York penitentiary, saying he was “suffering” at the hands of government personnel and his fellow prisoners.
Miguel Angel Corea Diaz, the 35-year old gang member better known as ‘The Reaper,’ officially complained to a judge in Nassau County this week, adding he was a “human being” who “has a family and children.”
“Discrimination. I’m suffering in this county. They call me ‘El Chapo.’ Die, scary guy,” complained Diaz. “I’m a human being, I have a family. I have children. I’m not able to talk to them… It’s about time that I speak to them because when I get deported, I don’t know if I’m going to be able to speak to them again.”
Diaz was charged with three counts of “operating as a major drug trafficker” and five counts of conspiracy. He pleaded guilty to all crimes earlier this year on Long Island.

GANGLAND: MS-13 Orders Members to ‘TAKE OUT COPS’ in New York
Notorious street-gang MS-13 has reportedly ordered its members to “take out” police officers in New York; hoping to send a strong message to authorities following a serious crackdown on the group throughout the region.
According to the New York Post, the NYPD is on high-alert after a confidential informant told police that gang members were given a green light to murder local police officers; particularly in the nearby town of Hempstead on Long Island.
“The police have been making too many arrests and it’s time to take the streets back and take out (shoot) a cop like we do in El Salvador,” the suspect said.
Police are ratcheting up patrols and tracking down all leads related to the threat.
“It is imperative for members of the service to take these threats seriously and adapt their work habits and lifestyles accordingly,” said a memo released by the New York Police Department.
