NY: Gaps in Unaccompanied Minor Program a ‘Recruiting Pipeline for Violent Gangs’
Epoch Times – June 21, 2017
The arrest of 41 alleged MS-13 gang members in Nassau County last week highlighted a gaping hole in the immigration system. Of the 41 individuals in the 85-count indictment, 19 came into the country as unaccompanied minors (a child under 18 who illegally crosses the border without a parent or guardian), according to Nassau County Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter. He said that of the 22 others arrested, one is a citizen, while the rest are in the country illegally.
