"These are prisons where there's thugs, killers. Americans need to know, they're coming to the border."

Some of Venezuela's most violent criminals have been released from prison and US officials warned that they could be headed to the United States.

Those released allegedly include convicted killers, thugs, and members of the infamous Tren de Aragua gang. Venezuelan illegal immigrant, Jose Ibarra, who has been charged in the killing Georgia nursing student Laken Riley, is reportedly an "active member" of the same gang.

Venezuelan Supreme Court of Justice Magistrate Edgar Gavidia announced that 100 prisoners have been released and the country is looking to release more on a case-by-case basis.

"Since Friday, we have been carrying out in the state of Miranda, an operation looking into preventative centers and prisons," said Gavidia, according to the Daily Mail. "We're looking case-by-case at anyone, giving justice to those who at one time made a mistake in their lives to expedite justice."

Rolando Vazquez, an immigration attorney in Miami, warned Americans about the dangers that could be headed their way, saying "These are killers."

"These are career criminals... [Maduro] is just sending more," Vazquez told the outlet. "They're thugs. These are prisons where there's thugs, killers. These are not the prisons where they house the political opposition."

"Americans need to know, they're coming to the border," the lawyer added.

The prisoners have been released from the notorious Yare prison and its sister facility Yare II. An additional prison known as the El Rodeo has also released inmates.

In addition to Jose Ibarra allegedly murdering Laken Riley, the NYPD warned that the Tren de Aragua gang is responsible for dozens of robberies and terrorizing residents in the Big Apple.

Two of its gang members were arrested over the viral brutal attack on NYPD officers in Times Square in January.

According to recent Immigration Customs and Enforcement data, only 834 Venezuelans were deported in fiscal year 2023, despite there being more than 335,000 border encounters.
