According to a report from Town Hall, a member of MS-13, one of the most violent gangs in the world, was arrested by U.S. authorities at the southern border after traveling to the United States with the infamous migrant caravan.
“The incident occurred at approximately 6:09 p.m., when agents encountered a man just east of the Calexico Port of Entry suspected of being in the United States illegally,” a news release from the Customs and Border Protections agency stated. “After a short interview, the man told agents he is a Honduran citizen and active gang member with the notorious Mara Salvatrucha 13 (MS-13) international crime organization.”
“The man also told agents he traveled to the United States border with a large group of people from Central America intending on filing for asylum in the United States,” the statement continued.
The gangmember has reportedly been identified as 29-year-old Jose Villalobos-Jobel, and will be repatriated to Honduras.

In a statement to Fox News, the Department of Homeland Security said hundreds of dangerous people were embedded within the migrant caravan, a fact pointed out many times by President Trump but always scoffed at by the media and far-left.
“As President Trump and Secretary Nielsen warned, over the last few weeks we have identified over 600 known criminals and gang members in the caravan,” The DHS told Fox in a statement. “We are now predictably seeing members of the caravan – which includes criminals – show up at the border and claim asylum. These threats are only going to increase in light of illegitimate judicial injunctions and loopholes created by Congress.”
Stay tuned to see how the media and far-left attempt to spin this one.
