The 16-year-old victim told police he was at Burger King with friends when six of his classmates from Huntington High School entered and began staring at them. The teen, feeling uncomfortable, left with his friend, and three of the gang members followed them.
Officials have admitted that all three of the attackers were in the U.S. illegally, and “two of the suspects entered into the country illegally through the unaccompanied alien child loophole in the Rio Grande Valley.”
Department of Homeland Security Spokeswoman Katie Waldman explained that “one of the loopholes we are imploring Congress to close could have prevented this gruesome attack,” Waldman stated. “Not only are the alleged assailants MS-13 gang members, but they entered the country illegally as unaccompanied alien children from the Northern Triangle.”
“The Trafficking Victims Protections Reauthorization Act incentivizes unaccompanied alien children to entry the country illegally with little to no chance of ever being removed,” she explained. “This loophole is exploited by MS-13 to gain additional recruits.”
So, while democrats party in Puerto Rico, violent, evil gang members continue to roam free and present real threats to the safety of citizens.
During the first three months of Fiscal Year 2019, more than 19,000 children crossed the border without parents, DHS officials told Breitbart News.
“This humanitarian crisis is driven by court rulings and poorly written laws that incentivize the smuggling of illegal immigrants under the age of 18. Funding the border wall, amending the TVPRA, and ending the Flores Settlement Agreement will put smugglers and traffickers out of business and protect vulnerable populations,” DHS Spokeswoman Katie Waldman said in a written statement earlier this month.
“As a result, in just a few years, CBP has seen a sizeable increase in the number of UACs illegally entering the country,” DHS officials reported. “In 2010, Border Patrol apprehended 18,622 UACs. In 2018, Border Patrol apprehended 50,036 UACs—i.e. an increase of 169% in just 8 years.”
“This loophole encourages parents to send their children alone on a dangerous journey to the United States, often at the hands of unscrupulous human traffickers,” officials explained.
“Smugglers, traffickers, and their own parents put these minors at risk by embarking on the dangerous and arduous journey north,” she explained.
“As a result of bad judicial rulings from activist judges and inaction by Congress, we are seeing a flood of family units and unaccompanied alien children,” Nielsen concluded. “The unprecedented number of families and unaccompanied children at the border must not be ignored. I once again ask – beg – parents to not place their children at risk by taking a dangerous journey north. Vulnerable populations – including family units and unaccompanied alien children should seek asylum at the first possible opportunity, including Mexico.”
“To those in Congress who continue to refuse to take action to address the loopholes that cause a flood of humanity to travel north and place children at risk, I once again call on you to do your job, protect vulnerable populations, secure our borders, and provide the men and women of DHS the authorities and resources we need to address this crisis,” the secretary said.
Authorities reported the gang members had blood on their clothing and hands, and Molina was found with two knives, one in each of his socks.
According to police, Lopez entered the United States illegally on December 8, 2016, and was picked up by the Department of Homeland Security in October 2017. However, a federal judge released him from custody in June.
So, these vile, animals were allowed to attend school with other normal people, and free to attack whoever they wanted.
UPDATE: Police say the three MS-13 members accused of stabbing a teen on Long Island all entered the U.S. illegally https://t.co/kIxtVVsaBq
