A Honduran national who admits he belongs to the notorious MS-13 gang was arrested on the U.S. side of the border after traveling with the caravan of migrants currently camped in Mexico near Tijuana.
Agents arrested Jose Villalobos-Jobel, 29, shortly after 6 P.M. on Saturday, according to a statement released by the border patrol.
During questioning at the El Centro station, the Honduran citizen confessed that he is an active member of MS-13 and had intended to enter the country illegally after traveling to the U.S. with the caravan of thousands of other migrants. He is in custody pending his deportation back to Honduras.
President Trump has made MS-13 a priority in his crackdown on illegal immigration and said last month that the latest caravan, estimated to consist of as many as 7,000 people, contained MS-13 members.
“You’re going to find MS-13, you’re going to find Middle Eastern, you’re going to find everything,” he said of the caravan travelers.
