Border Patrol captures illegals arriving by boat, including MS-13 gang member

Approximately 40 miles north of the U.S./Mexican border officials nabbed 20 illegal aliens attempting to break into the country via panga boat.

California Border Patrol agents greeted the illegals when they arrived on the sand at South Ponto Beach, Carlsbad. Among them were 16 males and four female illegal immigrants including a suspected MS-13 gang member.

“Two suspected smugglers returned to sea aboard the boat before the agents approached the scene. The United States Coast Guard and U.S. Customs and Border Protection Marine Interdiction agents conducted a search of the area but were unable to locate the vessel,” according to Mark Endicott of Border Patrol.

The gang member was identified at a local Border Patrol station using biometric information. The MS-13 gang member was identified as Carlos Henriquez-Perez, 26-years-old and part of the Mara Salvatrucha limb of the violent gang.

Henriquez is currently in federal custody and will face prosecution for reentering the U.S. as a prior deportee.

According to the Border Patrol, San Diego remains vigilant regarding the high number illegal immigrants who attempt to cross into American via the waterways.
