WaEx: Three shocking new details from the Center for Immigration Studies show the problem:
— 92 percent of MS-13 gang members arrested are in the United States illegally.
— 80 percent of the tens of thousands of Latin American youths who’ve crossed illegally into the United States and were seized by authorities have subsequently been placed with other illegals, some with ties to the gang.
— In calls to track the so-called “unaccompanied alien children” placed with adults in the U.S. illegally, contact has been made with only 56 percent.
“The UACs are often placed with sponsors who are in the United States illegally, with virtually no post-placement oversight by the federal government, exposing both the children and communities to increasingly profound waves of gang violence while perpetuating the illegal immigrant population,” said the CIS report.
