President Trump Says These Two Loopholes Force US To Accept MS-13 ‘Killers’ At The Border

President Donald Trump called for changes Tuesday to laws governing how young illegal immigrants are processed after being detained at the border, saying the policies force immigration authorities to resettle “killers” in the U.S.
Meeting with homeland security officials and lawmakers at the White House, Trump said the reforms are needed to battle transnational criminal organizations, particularly MS-13. The notorious gang frequently recruits unaccompanied alien minors (UAC) from Central America who have been resettled in the interior of the country, according to state and federal law enforcement officials.
As Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen noted at the meeting, there are two provisions of immigration law that require border authorities to handle UACs and family units differently than other illegal immigrants they detain. The policies were meant to reduce human trafficking and guarantee the humane treatment of migrant children, but they also incentivize illegal immigration, according to the Trump administration.
“These loopholes create a pull factor that invites more illegal immigration and encourages parents to pay and entrust their children to criminal organizations that will smuggle them in,” the White House said in a statement last week.
