The Obama administration knowingly sent at least 16 deadly MS-13 gang members into community homes across the country, when it was dealing with an influx of illegal alien juveniles who found their way into the U.S., according to a report.

The Washington Times said the details came from a top senator who cited “internal documents.”

Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, explained documents from the Customs and Border Protection that a whistleblower turned over provided details on the 16 persons caught crossing the border.

“CBP apprehended them, knew they were MS-13 gang members, and they processed and disbursed them into our communities,” the senator said.

It happened during the surge of illegal alien children who arrived in the United States as part of one of several waves during the Obama administration.

The government labels them UAC, or “unaccompanied alien children,” and Homeland Security struggled to deal with the issue as they flooded into the states from Central America and Mexico in 2014.

Critics charged that they were drawn like moths to a light because of the Obama administration’s decisions that treated them like guests, providing them with many government benefits, instead of as lawbreakers.

The report said, “Officials at the time said the children should be treated as refugees fleeing horrific conditions back home – though security analysts said the children were prime recruiting territory for gangs already in the U.S.”

Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican, said out of the nearly 200,000 UAC caught from 2012 to 2016, 68 percent were ages 14-17. And he said the majority were male, “making them targets for gang recruiting,” the report said.

When President Trump took office, the welcome mat for illegal aliens, including children, was no longer on display.

In fact, local and federal law enforcement officials earlier this month conducted 50 simultaneous raids and took down almost two dozen “high-ranking” suspected leaders of the notoriously violent MS-13 street gang.

According to NBC News’ Los Angeles affiliate, the raids were the result of an extended investigation.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, after his appointment, vowed to “devastate” the gang that has its origins in Central America.

He said last month there was “no doubt” that it was “one of the most violent gangs in the history of our country.”

Trump, at that time, had blamed the problem on what he described as the “weak illegal immigration policies” of the Obama administration.

The attorney general explain how, under that last administration, gang members were “directed how to enter, if they came, and claim themselves as a minor and the Obama administration let them come in the country and took them to their destination city and turned them over to some relative that claimed to be a relative.”

But Sessions explained the real nature of gange members.

“They use machetes, they kill children, they put children into prostitution at age 12 … They’re involved in the kinds of activities that can be identified and they can be prosecuted,” Sessions said. “I believe if we stay at it, we can devastate this organization and that’s going to be our goal.”

Only a few weeks prior to Sessions’ blast, WND reported how a Democrat state lawmaker in Massachusetts had been caught tipping off illegals – many of whom are violent street gang members, child sex offenders and drug traffickers – to imminent Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids.

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman suggested to WND that the lawmaker is “doing a disservice to the community” and “endangering public safety” with her statements.

Massachusetts State Rep. Michelle DuBois, a Democrat representing the 10th Plymouth District, warned illegals about imminent federal immigration raids that were scheduled. DuBois posted the warning on her Facebook page. She included a phone number illegal aliens may call if they’re caught in an immigration raid.

The slogan for the violent criminals in MS-13 is “mata, viola, controla” – or kill, rape, control.
