Border Patrol agents arrested two MS-13 gang members in two separate incidents last week.
The first arrest was made on Wednesday when McAllen agents working in Mission, Texas arrested a Salvadorian national whose criminal record checks confirmed that he is a MS-13 gang member.
Then on Saturday, Rio Grande City agents working near Roma, Texas arrested a Salvadorian national after illegally entering the United States. Record checks later confirmed that the national was a member of the MS-13 gang.
Both subjects were turned over to Border Patrol agents.
