[Ed. – It’s good that ICE is running the stings and catching these guys, but apparently, the resettlement program for the “unaccompanied minors” is still being used, even under Trump, to make questionable releases and moves of heavily tattooed “teenage” males.]

Nearly 100 recently arrested MS-13 gang members arrived in the United States by crossing through the U.S.-Mexico border as “unaccompanied minors” and then getting resettled throughout the country by the federal government.

About 475 gang members have been arrested by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency’s “Operation Matador” sting, with 99 of those gang members arrested having arrived in the U.S. as “unaccompanied minors.”
