Rio Grande Valley ABC affiliate KRGV reported on Wednesday a La Grulla, Texas police officer was confronted by an illegal migrant member of the notorious MS-13 gang with a car full of illegal aliens he was recruiting.
The office detained the 26-year-old undocumented immigrant from El Salvador along with other illegals from Central America in his vehicle. After turing them over to border patrol the officer said this was the first time he has confronted the dangerous MS-13 gang noting, “Once I asked him to lift up his shirt, that’s where I observed he had MS-13 tatooed on his chest and his back….he was more tough, and more you know aggressive.”
The officer who preferred to remain unidentified said, “In my opinion I believe to spread you know, spread the outbreak of gang members, to recruit more people.”
Mara Salvatrucha also known as MS Mara or MS-13 is a transnational gang that originated in east Los Angeles and has since grown to have a large network of criminal members throughout the United States, Mexico, and Central America.
