Last year, U.S. border authorities detained 41 members of the dangerous Venezuelan mega-gang El Tren de Aragua while they were trying to enter the country. The criminal group, known for its violence and illicit activities, has been identified as a growing threat to public safety in the United States, according to a recent report from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published by CNN en Español.

The Aragua Train, originating inside a Venezuelan prison, has evolved into a criminal organization with international reach.
