Due to the crisis at our border, dangerous gang members are able to enter our nation and threaten our people

From KTSM. The largest growing criminal organization in the world has infiltrated its way into the United States, said an El Paso FBI agent.

Pray for your fellow intercessor.


The Tren de Aragua, or the “Aragua Train,” gained notoriety after its founding in 2012 by Hector Guerrero … in the state of Aragua located in the north-central region of Venezuela.

Operating initially from Tocorón prison in Venezuela, the gang made headlines after 11,000 police officers raided the prison back in September …

What they did not find was any sign of Guerrero, the head of the gang.

The Venezuelan police presume he fled the prison via concrete tunnels and is now leading the gang from somewhere else. … Hundreds of other criminals also fled …

“A lot of these criminals have taken advantage of Venezuela’s most vulnerable people who have fled the country” in the wake of an economic and social issues, said former Border Patrol Agent Ammon Blair.

The gang has now become a significant concern along the US-Mexico border, Blair said.

A CNN report said U.S. Border Patrol arrested 38 possible gang members between October 2022 and 2023, with two detained near the El Paso border. …

Blair, the former Border Patrol agent, said this can be extremely troublesome for Borderland communities given that this gang is extremely violent. …

Blair also tells KTSM that the gang’s modus operandi includes extortion of small migrant businesses, particularly those unwilling to pay their imposed “tax.” …

So, what is law enforcement doing? The biggest problem with cracking down on the gang is their lack of criminal records from Venezuela and strained US-Venezuela relations, hindering information exchange, Blair said. …

ALL the politicians who have failed miserably to protect the US border are responsible for this infiltration. Whether they knowingly voted, voted party line, or back-doored “you wash my hand – I’ll wash yours” have responsibility.

The same with those who knew of Biden’s mental capacity decline and did nothing – who acted “as if” he was fit. Well, he wasn’t and isn’t. Harris is no leader – and whatever support she gets from the Dems are the same Dems that are responsible for the condition and the “raised alert” threat.

Did they not swear to God and the people of this nation to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; to bear true faith and allegiance to the same……”

LORD, LORD, LORD – Hear my cry, just as You did when Your Prophet Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes so that he may see.” Father, open our eyes so that we may SEE, send forth Your Word of protection, chariots of fire, strike the enemy with blindness. Lift up a standard against them, chase them away. (2 Kings 6; Isaiah 59:19). Take over their ranks and neutralize them- however that looks like.

Father, forgive me for being tolerant to the wrongs of this nation of this world,
For not standing up when I should have, for believing the lies of what a “good” Christian “should do”. Jesus, I renew my dependence on You, As Jesus spoke to Sardis, “ Wake up, strengthen what remains.” (Revelation 3:2)

In Jesus Name.

Lord I pray Your Mercy over our Borders and our Nation.
Lord I pray Thy Will over the evil intentions of those who have come into our Nation in the past years. With Man this is impossible but in You we put our Trust. Psalm 9:9-10 The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed. A stronghold in times of trouble. 10 And those who know your name put their trust in you.
Take back the ground we have given to the enemy’s and restore revival of faith in You and repentance individually and corporately here in the USA. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
