This week, Rio Grande Valley Sector (RGV) Border Patrol agents arrested 17 gang members.

On September 26, McAllen Border Patrol Station (MCS) agents apprehended 17 migrants near Mission. A Honduran among the group was identified as a Mara-Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang member with an extensive immigration history. The subject served 18 months incarceration for being previously removed from the U.S.

The next day, MCS agents conducted record checks on a Salvadoran national, who was apprehended with a group of five migrants. Criminal history revealed he was convicted for possession of a controlled substance in 2017. The subject was sentenced to 100 days confinement.

Additionally, RGV agents apprehended 15 other gang members associated to MS-13, 18th Street, and Surreno gangs.

All subjects were processed accordingly.
