Deported MS-13er caught crossing border

Deported MS-13 member busted at U.S. border

An MS-13 gang member with a lengthy criminal history, deported six years ago after serving time in the Nassau County jail, was captured Monday morning in California trying to sneak back into the United States, a Border Patrol spokesman said.

The man, whose name has not yet been released by federal authorities, is now in custody at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in San Diego, said Border Patrol Agent Mark Endicott, a bureau spokesman based in Chula Vista, Calif.

"He did time in a Long Island, Nassau County jail, and as soon as he was released he was deported to El Salvador" in February 2002, the spokesman said.

The man jumped the fence at the U.S.-Mexico border at around 6:30 a.m. at a border station near a mountainous region about 35 miles east of San Diego, Endicott said. The border crossing is situated north of Tecate in the Baja California region of Mexico.

The man took advantage of darkness just before sunrise Monday and climbed over the border fence to avoid inspection by Customs officials at the crossing, but he was spotted by a Customs officer who alerted the Border Patrol, Endicott said.

He admitted being an MS-13 member, and he has a lengthy criminal history, Endicott said.

The man faces criminal prosecution for trying to sneak back into the U.S. due to his status as a deportee, a more severe U.S. criminal penalty than an undocumented alien who is caught for the first time entering the country, Endicott said.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, in a news release, said the man "admitted to being a member of the violent street gang" Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13.

A report in the San Diego Union-Tribune said the Salvadoran national, 34, "told investigators he had been a member of Mara Salvatrucha since age 18, and had been fully involved with the gang in New York City."

And what did I ask a 109th pct. officer 2 years ago?

Does MS 13
(or MS XIII, as I've seen this gang graffiti scrawled
on the mens' room door in Kane's Diner on
College Pt. Blv'd) pose a threat in Flushing?

"No", answered the community relations cop
at our civic meeting.

The cops are either either "D&D" (deaf and dumb)
or are hiding something from us!
