Migrant gangs create burglary ‘industry’; South Americans exploit U.S. law, highly trained to loot

Federal authorities have identified a new crime “industry” involving robbery crews from

South America who exploit America’s immigration system, break into a string of homes and make off with loot before fleeing back to their home countries. Some arrive in the U.S. legally on short-term visas specifically to steal, while others are part of the ongoing border surge and are recruited into sophisticated theft operations. Migrants travel from South America, hop from community to community to burglarize and then head back home.
