Vicious Venezuelan Gang Is Growing Across America 

A vicious gang from South America is growing across the U.S., prompting border officials to monitor tattoos about the criminal organization as “gotaway” numbers rose. 

President Joe Biden’s lax border policies have equipped foreign criminal gangs with the opportunity to wreak havoc across America. 

In New York City, a group of illegal Venezuelan migrants from the gang “Tren de Aragua” recently brutalized a pair of officers from the New York Police Department (NYPD). Not only that but another Venezuelan national murdered a 22-year-old nursing student in Georgia, Laken Riley

Reports indicate that the Venezuelan national responsible for killing Riley, Jose Ibarra, is a member of the “Tren de Aragua” gang. Ibarra was previously arrested multiple times before traveling to Georgia to meet with his brother Diego, who is also reportedly associated with the Venezuelan gang. 

After the tragic events in New York City, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) detailed an increase in members of the “Tren de Aragua” gang crossing the border. 

While sharing images of an internal CBP intelligence bulleting showing numerous tattoos affiliated with the Venezuelan gang, Fox News national correspondent Bill Melugin pointed out that border officials are frustrated that they can’t deport the Venezuelan illegal immigrants because Venezuela is unwilling to take them back. 

“Both CBP source & an ICE source expressed frustration that these Venezuelan gang members are extremely difficult to deport because Venezuela won’t take their citizens back right now. They can be removed to Mexico, but I’m told they typically then re-enter the U.S. illegally as a ‘gotaway,’” Melugin wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter. 

Melugin cited a source from Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) who said, “We have a ton of Venezuelans that we can’t get rid of. Reminder, According to ICE & CBP data, in fiscal year 2023, there were 335,000 encounters with Venezuelans at the border, but only 834 Venezuelans were deported. Venezuela is currently not taking any removal flights from the U.S.”

Among the tattoos affiliated with “Tren de Aragua” are trains, grenades, rifles and a character with a ball cap backward and a gas mask with the caption “REALG4LIFE.”
