Speaker of the House Pelosi claimed that MS-13 gang members do not pose as children at the U.S.-Mexico Southern Border.
The fact-checkers have proved her wrong.
Just last month Dallas News reported on a young man who was part of the bloodthirsty gang being arrested at the border.
Border Patrol agents arrested a member of the gang MS-13 near the U.S.-Mexico Border late last month, officials said.
Carlton David Pineda-Mejia, 21, was taken into custody June 25 shortly after he crossed the Rio Grande River near Eagle Pass, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said.
Agents determined Pineda-Mejia, a Honduran citizen, is an active member of the violent MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, gang. He was charged with unlawful entry and faces deportation.
President Donald Trump has sought to eradicate the criminal organization, frequently stating that U.S. immigration laws have allowed MS-13 members and other criminals to “infiltrate” American communities.
Back in 2017, ICE arrested nearly 800 MS-13 gang members.

And while Democrats defend MS-13, according to this VICE/HBO documentary, the bloodthirsty gang is laughing at President Trump’s crackdown.

During the Democrat response to President Trump’s Oval Office address, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claimed that minors arriving at the United States-Mexico border are “not a security threat.”
“The fact is, the women and children at the border are not a security threat,” Pelosi said. “They are a humanitarian challenge, a challenge that President Trump’s own cruel and counterproductive policies have only deepened. And the fact is, President Trump must stop holding the American people hostage.”
However, this claim is not true in many cases. In a November 2017 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raid, one-third of the 214 MS-13 gang members arrested in the operation had arrived in the U.S. as “Unaccompanied Alien Children” (UACs).
