There has been a 50 % increase in gang members entering the United States through the southern border according to testimony from former Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan.
The Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard writes, “What’s more, he warned in Senate testimony Thursday, loopholes in federal law will result in some 650,000 illegal immigrants — more than the population of Wyoming — being released into the United States, where most will ‘never to be heard from again.’”
Morgan was speaking to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee where he warned that many entering the country “either lack proper identifying documentation or effective vetting of what they produce is impossible, so we know virtually nothing about who we’re letting in.”

Morgan said that many of the gang members entering the country do so under false pretenses as “unaccompanied minors.”
“The MS-13 is one of the most violent and prolific transnational gangs the U.S. as ever seen and the influx of minors into the country through the current crisis will provide them with unlimited vulnerable prospects,” he said.
“While Border Patrol is tied up with the humanitarian mission, the smugglers business is thriving. According to Border Patrol, 800 gang members were apprehended so far this year, a 50 percent increase from last year. Imagine what they’re not catching,” he continued.

In this episode I address the attempted coup against Donald Trump, which was described in a 60 Minutes interview with Andrew McCabe. I also address the victories in the border wall funding fight and the reasons President Trump won the fight.
The chief of Border Patrol under President Obama said President Donald Trump’s wall on the southern border would be effective.
Former Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson last night, “Yes. [walls] absolutely work. If you look in the past, you don’t have to go too far back in history, that bipartisan legislation Secure Fence Act in 2006 and 2012, bipartisan legislation passed where they built the wall or fence or physical barrier, whatever you want to call it, it’s a wall. It works.”
Morgan told Carlson that he was removed from his position once the Trump administration transitioned to power, and yet he still supported the President’s agenda for the border wall.
“The president is right, the president of [National] Border Patrol Council is right,” he said. “The other day when they had the national press conference and they got up and they said, ‘The wall wor,’ they are right, and it’s not based on a personal, political ideology. That’s based on historical data and facts that can be proven.”
