On Thursday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported border agent have arrested five criminal illegal aliens trying to break back into the U.S. in Texas’ Rio Grande Sector.

  • A Mexican man who admitted to being member of the notoriously deadly Mara Salvatrucha gang, also known as MS-13.
  • Two Salvadoran nationals (in separate arrests) who confirmed they were members of the 18th Street Gang, a violent Los Angeles street gang comprised primarily of illegal immigrants.
  • A Brazilian woman previously arrested by the State Police in Burlington County, New Jersey for manslaughter and sentenced to four years in prison.
  • Mexican national previously arrested by the New Haven, Connecticut Police Department for 4th degree sexual assault and sentenced to one year of prison confinement.

“All subjects are being processed accordingly,” the CBP reports.
