[Ed. – Wolves in sheep’s clothing]
Loopholes in immigration laws being squeezed by the Trump administration but embraced by the Obama administration have allowed youthful illegal immigrants who self-identified as MS-13 gangbangers to be placed around the country instead of sent home, according to newly released documents.
Unlike illegal criminals who avoided border security, those cited by Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Chairman Sen. Ron Johnson in a letter to a key immigration agency were initially held by the Obama administration then put in placement centers throughout the nation and eventually with “sponsors” despite their gang ties.
Among them were 16 “admitted juvenile gang members” who defaced a Customs and Border Protection facility in Nogales, Ariz., with MS-13 graffiti, according to documents referenced by Johnson, a Senate leader in tightening illegal immigration.
They were eventually transferred to Virginia, Texas, New York and Washington state. Under Obama, they were typically released from placement centers pending a court hearing for which very few ever showed up. Others were sent to California, Louisiana, Georgia, New Jersey and Massachusetts.
