Large Groups Keep Crossing Borders; Gang Members Caught and Removed

A major force multiplier for the illegal-alien invaders who have been crossing the border at a rate of nearly 76,000 a month since October, the beginning of fiscal 2019, are large groups of more than 100 members, or smaller groups of 50 or less.

Customs and Border Protection, which caught three large groups on April 30 comprising more than 600 illegals, reported more such apprehensions last week.

The large groups are a problem not just because they waste the valuable time of U.S. Border Patrol personnel on what amounts to babysitting duties. A secondary problem is catch and release and who might be in the group that CBP routinely releases: gang members.

If undetected in these large groups and then released, those gang members must be found and removed, as Immigration and Customs Enforcement did twice on Thursday with dangerous thugs from two gangs.

ICE didn’t say the gang members came in with large groups, but the agency’s having to remove them just the same raises the question: How many are slipping by border agents and being released because a records check doesn’t divulge their gang membership?

Between Thursday and Sunday, CBP reported, agents at the Presidio, Texas station collared 251 illegals from the Northern Triangle of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.

At 11:30 p.m. on Thursday, the agency reported, agents arrested 56 illegals who tried to get into the country through Presidio. The next morning, the agents locked up another 19 illegals, and on Saturday, caught another 176.

In the first 13 days of May, CBP reported, agents in that sector apprehended 648 illegals.

Meanwhile on Saturday, CBP reported, agents in the sector in Yuma, Arizona, caught an 18th Street gang member from El Salvador and six other border jumpers from Mexico and Honduras.

Agents caught all seven after they discovered footprints near the border south of Dateland. A search turned them up hiding in the brush, and a records check identified one, Santo Sorto-Sorto, 34, as the gang member.

Like so many other illegals, Sorto-Sorto is an accomplished criminal, CBP reported. He “has multiple felony convictions for possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes, and disorderly conduct out of New Jersey. He stated that he was attempting to travel to Houston, Texas to live and work.”

Undoubtedly, he was here, as open-borders advocates say, “to do a job Americans won’t do.”
