(TruthandLiberty.com) – On May 23, the Biden administration plans to lift Title 42 pandemic restrictions that allow the Border Patrol to deny illegal immigrants entry due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many lawmakers on both sides of the aisle say it’s irresponsible to end the order at this time. It comes alongside news that MS-13 gangs could arrive at the southern border and enter the country as illegal immigrants.
On Thursday, April 7, the Department of Justice announced a federal judge sentenced the sixth and final MS-13 gang member involved in the murder of a Boston teenager. Marlos Reyes, a 26-year-old Salvadorian national, took part in the brutal 2018 murder after falsely accusing the young man of being a law enforcement informant. An autopsy of the young victim found at least 32 stab wounds and numerous blows to the head.

Reyes received 23 years in federal prison and three years of supervised release. In addition to murder, the MS-13 gang member pleaded guilty to RICO racketeering charges. The other five MS-13 gang members convicted in the killing received sentences from 15 years to life in prison.
The DOJ said Reyes belonged to an MS-13 gang branch known as the Sykos Locos Salvatrucha, which operates in the Boston area. The border crisis would likely open the doors to increases in gang-related crimes such as this one.
