Hundreds of criminals illegally cross the US border, including rapists and murderers
The head of the U.S. Border Patrol Division said more than 860 criminals have been identified on the U.S. border since the beginning of the fiscal year, including 92 sex offenders and 63 gang members. The Epoch Times.
“A Salvadoran man with previous murder convictions and 862 foreign criminals have been identified among the vast array of gangs encountered in the Rio Grande Valley sector in Texas,” patrol chief agent Brian Hastings tweeted March 27.
Hastings wrote that agents recently confronted five large groups of families of illegal immigrants, unaccompanied minors and some adults - only 539 people.
The groups included about 93 unaccompanied children, Hastings said. He added that in the three months of 2021, agents have met more than 18 of these children.
Last week, President Joe Biden said he would not apologize for repealing some of the border policies of his Republican predecessor, President Donald Trump, and dismissed criticism of illegal immigrants coming to the United States because they considered him a "good guy."
He said the United States is in talks with Mexico to bring back more illegal immigrant families.
Biden received bipartisan backlash, with even some Democratic lawmakers calling on the president to reinstate some of Trump's immigration decisions.
“The administration is doing the right thing because the law requires us to process the data of unaccompanied minors,” Rep. Philemon Vela said in a March 24 statement. "However, we are in the midst of a pandemic and our systems are overwhelmed."

Vela, citing data from the border patrol, said 13 percent of unaccompanied minors encountered at the US-Mexico border are under 12 years old, and the majority are 13 years of age or older.
“One logical approach to this situation would be to return older adolescents to their home country and secure funding for United Nations-overseen efforts to properly care for these adolescents upon their return,” Vela said. - Then, when the pandemic is under control, you can turn the program back on so that there is some semblance of control over the process. I think this will help ease the current burden. "
At the same time, the White House faced opposition from the media, who denounced the lack of transparency regarding facilities used to contain children and other illegal migrants.
