Internal Obama administration-era documents passed on to a Senate committee allege that the government knowingly let 16 members of the gang MS-13 enter the United States as underage illegal aliens in 2014, The Washington Times reported.
Those documents were revealed by Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, who chairs the Senate Homeland Security Committee. He claimed the gang members were shipped off to juvenile homes in various parts of the United States.
“(Customs and Border Protection) apprehended them, knew they were MS-13 gang members, and they processed and disbursed them into our communities,” Johnson said Wednesday.
The documents came to light at a Senate hearing on MS-13, an international criminal gang with a strong presence in Mexico.
According to Fox News, Johnson also sent a letter to the Office of Refugee Resettlement asking why the alleged gang members had been let into the United States.
So, what did the Democrats do? Blame the Republicans for publicizing the documents, of course.
“I have concerns that these documents were released so quickly,” said Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, who said releasing the documents might have hurt active investigations.
Considering that the gang members were let into the country roughly three years ago, I’d say the investigations are likely complete or needed a kick in the butt to get completed. Either way, I doubt Johnson’s revelation harmed anything but Barack Obama’s reputation.
Just in case you forgot, 2014 was the summer where a wave of unaccompanied minors showed up at our southern border and the Obama administration did next to nothing about it. Most of those unaccompanied minors were hardly minors at all, too; of the roughly 200,000 unaccompanied minors apprehended between 2012 and 2016 at the southern border, 68 percent were 15 or over.
In other words, I doubt these were the only unaccompanied minors who were members of MS-13 and crossed our border, they’re just the ones we caught. No wonder America voted for a candidate who vocally supported building a wall.
