Back in February 15-year-old Limber Lopez went missing in Fredrick County, Maryland. His disappearance was strange, and it took until April before his remains were discovered in Gambrill State Park. Now, 5 illegal aliens are in jail for his murder. 21-year-old Alexis Alfredo Ayala Lopez, 23-year-old Jose Roberto Ramos Lopez, 29-year-old Ismael Lopez Lopez, 27-year-old Elmer Bladimir Reyes Reyes, and 20-year-old Ismael Ivan Rivera Canales are all facing murder charges.

Per the Fredrick’s County Sherriff’s office and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), both Ramos Lopez and Lopez Lopez are known members of Mara Salvatrucha (MS)-13. This El Salvadorian gang is incredibly popular with drug-dealing illegal immigrants who are not of Mexican descent.

Recruiting strongly from the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) string of kids, they have a never-ending supply of hungry and willing participants. Then again, when the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) let these known MS-13 members into the US instead of sending them home, it’s a big problem.

Biden’s horrible decision to make the southern border little more than an annoyance instead of a deterrence to illegal immigration is horrific. As DHS and ICE let MS-13 members not only cross the border but also help them get set up in new communities, it’s bad for all of us. Giving them UACs to tag along and learn the gang life isn’t helping either. Instead, it pushes along the narrative that the US supports and condones this kind of activity. Then again, given the way the left treats crime, maybe it is.

It is tragic that this young man was murdered and that his family had to suffer for months without him as they wondered what happened to him. Finding out that MS-13 was behind his death likely makes matters worse for his family, and what Biden’s DHS and ICE did by failing to keep them out only adds insult to injury.
