For weeks now, our dishonest media has been portraying the migrants of the Central American caravan as women and children who are completely harmless. Now, one member of the caravan has admitted that he is part of the dangerous MS-13 gang.
The Washington Examiner reports:
MS-13 gang member admits he hid in caravan to reach the US border
An active member of the MS-13 gang admitted to U.S. Border Patrol officials that he joined a caravan of migrants in the hopes of reaching the border and crossing into the United States, a U.S. official told the Washington Examiner.
Jose Villalobos-Jobel of Honduras was arrested on Nov. 24, after being spotted standing on the U.S. side of the border east of the port of entry in Calexico, Calif.
Customs and Border Protection said Villalobos-Jobel admitted to being from Honduras and an active gang member of Mara Salvatrucha 13, or MS-13, a transnational criminal organization. He also said he traveled to the U.S. from his home country with one of the caravan groups, which have said they were coming to the U.S. to apply for asylum at the border.
About 2,000 migrants who traveled through Mexico as part of the caravan are in Mexicali, just south of the border from California’s Calexico. Another 6,000 people are in Tijuana, about 100 miles west of Calexico.
Will the mainstream media ignore this inconvenient fact? Probably.
