MS-13 Uses Sick Child To Cross The Border, Thwarted By Agents [Video]
CBP reported that a man with known ties to the MS-13 gang attempted to cross the border posing as the father of a sick toddler. The small girl is suffering from chicken pox and is currently being cared for by agents as they try to locate her actual parent.
The issue with adults using children they’re not related to is on the rise. Families with children are processed through facilities much more quickly and so dangerous criminals are acquiring children to help them cross. Agents have previously reported that the amount of adults found with children they’re not related to is terrifying.

According to Town Hall, Smugglers are hired for as much as $20,000 per person and pair unrelated adults to unrelated children. The entire purpose is to claim asylum, valid or not, with the understanding that “family units” are apprehended and then released to the interior of the United States. Since 2008, asylum claims have ballooned by 1,700 percent according to DHS data.
Under the Obama administration, 80-90 percent of individuals making asylum claims with children were released after being processed and given a court date. Inevitably, they started living in the U.S. illegally for years to come. This is the policy the Trump administration is trying to change.
Border Patrol, HHS, and ICE have taken a lot of criticism after receiving children in near-death condition and not being able to save them all. The harsh climate and rugged terrain on the path to the U.S. border from Mexico are not fit for most adults. Much less small children.
