Border Agents Arrest Murderers, Gang Members & Worse Last Week


EDINBURG, Texas – Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol (RGV) agents arrested and identified 12 gang members, and six illegals with criminal convictions, including murder and sexual crimes against children. These arrests occurred from Feb. 18 to Feb. 25.

Over the last week, RGV agents apprehended seven Mara-Salvatrucha (MS-13) from El Salvador, two 18th Street gang members from Guatemala and El Salvador, one Sureno 13 from Mexico, and two Paisas from Mexico and El Salvador.

Two of the criminal migrants were identified as convicted murderers.  A Salvadoran 18th Street gang member was convicted in 2006 of murder in his home country. Records checks on a second Salvadoran migrant revealed a murder conviction from 2010 out of Montgomery County, Maryland.

One Paisa gang member was sentenced to 24 months confinement in 2014 for migrant smuggling.

In addition to this week’s arrest of gang members and murderers, agents apprehended migrants with convictions for violent sex offenses – including a Salvadoran national convicted in 1991 and two Mexican nationals convicted in 2014 and 2019, respectively.

All subjects were processed accordingly.
