(AmericanProsperity.com) – Illegal immigrants are flocking to the United States in record numbers and trying to take advantage of President Joe Biden’s relaxed immigration policies. Statistics from the Washington Post show a 400% jump in illegal migrant numbers from March 2020 to March 2021. Not only are all these criminals trespassing, but many, including one apprehended this week, have despicable charges against them.
On Tuesday, April 27, Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents intercepted a current MS-13 gang member near the San Luis Port of Entry. Harry Williams Payes-Mejia had previously been jailed in an Idaho penitentiary for “lewd and lascivious conduct with a minor,” and had an outstanding warrant for violating probation. The Department of Justice’s US Marshals shared the arrest on Twitter:
Harry Williams Payes-Mejia, 46, an active member of MS-13, was arrested by Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents with two others east of the San Luis Port of Entry in Arizona. He will be turned over to U.S. Marshals for an outstanding warrant for probation violations.

The US will prosecute Payes-Mejia for re-entry, but this is just one of many arrests of sex offenders, criminals, and sex traffickers at or around our border in recent weeks. As the migration surge appears to have no end, it’s critical that our lawmakers ensure our borders are safe and our CBP officials are provided for during this perilous time.
