DHS Warns of Cartel Role in Illegal Alien Caravan

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen warned on Sunday that cartels would try to exploit the illegal alien caravan moving toward the United States border with Mexico to infiltrate members.
Cartels are already heavily involved in moving illegal aliens and drugs into the U.S. and, given the confusion and chaos associated with the caravan, would surely see a golden opportunity to sneak cartel members into the country.
“While we closely monitor the caravan crisis, we must remain mindful of the transnational criminal organizations and other criminals that prey on the vulnerabilities of those undertaking the irregular migration journey,” Mr. Nielsen said in a statement Sunday.
“We fully support the efforts of Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico, as they seek to address this critical situation and ensure a safer and more secure region,” the secretary said.
Those efforts have failed in Mexico, where approximately 2,000 illegals are still moving toward the U.S. border after barging into the country on Friday. Mexican police tried to stop the human wave but after scuffling at a border crossing with Guatemala, Mexican police basically gave up.
