U.S. Border Patrol stations are so overrun with thousands of unattended children, many of whom are sick that they are undermanned and ill equipped to handle the situation.
Thousands of known gang members are among the hordes of illegal immigrant children storming the U.S. border and officials are now trying to silence officers from talking to the media. Officers have been told to treat the potential gang members, and known gang members as they do any other child entering the country.
So far, an estimated 47,000 children have crossed into the U.S. illegally since the beginning of this year, and the numbers are growing by the hundreds with superiors instructing the agents not to talk to the media.
Some of the minors crossing the border, including teenagers, have been sporting gang tattoos such as MS-13, which is one of the world’s most notorious international gangs.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) on Thursday that asked them to end this “intentional” and “unconscionable” crisis at the border, Brewer stated that by the “Obama administration’s own estimation, 230,000 unaccompanied alien minors are expected to cross through the Rio Grande Sector by the end of next year.” She wondered, if the Border Patrol is being overwhelmed, “what consideration is being given – and what is being done – to determine if any of these illegal aliens have criminal histories or gang affiliations.”
Brewer specifically mentioned that “MS-13, one of the world’s most notorious international gangs, has strong ties to several of the Central American countries from which these aliens are arriving.”
The signs of violence are evident and border patrol officers dealing with the thousands of minors crossing the U.S. border illegally have been noticing some sporting international gang tattoos. They have been instructed treat them like any other minor.
The immigrant children are crammed in tiny rooms and forced to sleep on the floor with aluminium blankets until more supplies are brought in.
Many carrying unknown diseases have most likely gone untreated and are infecting others in the holding cells. One border guard said the resources are so slim that diseased children are separated simply by yellow police evidence tape.
