The CBP also announced that agents had intercepted 13 gang members, including members of the MS-13 and 18th Street gangs. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, was created in Los Angeles by Central American immigrants and has spread across the continent. Its motto is said to be “mother, viola, control” – “kill, rape, control.”

The arrest comes as a Mexican illegal immigrant who entered the US earlier this year was convicted of possession of child pornography.

The Justice Department announced last week that 24-year-old Mexican citizen Christian Dolores Muoz-de la Rosa pleaded guilty to transporting and possessing child pornography.

Muoz-de la Rosa admitted to being part of a group of illegal immigrants caught near Carrizo Springs, Texas, in June. When he was picked up, officers checked his phone and discovered illegal images.
