One of the most dangerous gangs in the U.S. is taking advantage of the crisis on our southern border.

Now, Border Patrol documents newly obtained exclusively by Townhall detail the crimes MS-13 and other gang members in the Nogales processing center admit to committing.
In an interview with Border Patrol agents, 15-year-old self admitted MS-13 member with the last name Aguilar said he killed a member of rival gang 18th Street six months ago with a fully automatic Uzi before coming to the United States.
"He claims he walked over to the wounded rival, and emptied the magazine into the rival's body," interview documents show.
Aguilar also admitted to, "being involved in extortion for the gang," and "collecting money from local vendors and threatening them if they refused to pay."
Another MS-13 member with the last name Garcia admitted to receiving a phone call while in the processing center from El Salvador with orders to carry out a murder on a rival gang member.
"Garcia stated he received a call from homeboy who is incarcerated in an El Salvadoran prison. This individual ordered Garcia to kill a rival 18th Street gang member," documents state. "Garcia stated his plans were to reunite in Los Angeles with is father."
Pavlich was on “Fox and Friends,” where she explained that these reputed gang members are now scheduled for placement in the U.S. She said that the typical procedure is to give them an immigration hearing and ask them to show up, but about 97 percent don’t show up for their court date.
“We have a very serious public safety concern on our hands when Border Patrol can't separate these people out from the general population,” she said.
