Of all of the imports that we receive from south of the border, none has been more dangerous than MS-13.
Considered to be one of the world’s most deadly gangs, MS-13 has been responsible for a streak of terror that has ratcheted up fear levels in nearly all 50 states. Their primary residence, due to the lax immigration laws and overall namby-pamby attitude toward criminals, has been liberal haven California, where the gang has nested its American branch for decades.
When Donald Trump spoke on the campaign trail about bad hombres flowing into our country from Mexico, MS-13 is exactly who he was talking about.
Now, under Trump’s tutelage, it looks as though the U.S. may finally get the upper hand on the notorious organization, thanks to the President’s unrelenting war on illegal immigration.
“Federal and local law enforcement officers conducted 50 simultaneous raids in the pre-dawn hours Wednesday, taking down almost two dozen “high-ranking” suspected leaders of the notoriously violent MS-13 street gang, along with numerous Mexican Mafia leaders, in what is being described as the ‘largest gang raid in Los Angeles history.’
“According to NBC News’ local Los Angeles affiliate, the raids were ‘the culmination of a three-year investigation,’ in the words of the FBI’s Deidre Fike.“Led by the Los Angeles Metropolitan Task Force on Violent Gangs, the investigation began in June 2014, targeting the most violent actors and most senior leaders within the violent criminal enterprise controlled by MS-13, along with their ties to the Mexican Mafia.
“Some 34 MS-13 and Mexican Mafia associates were charged with federal RICO violations, and five Mexican Mafia associates were charged ‘in a narcotics conspiracy.’ Two others were arrested for probable cause for narcotics and weapons violations, Fike added.”
This will certainly comes a welcome news to residents of Los Angeles, who have lived under the threat of gang violence from a multitude of criminal organizations for decades. Up until recently, violence between the American street gangs The Crips and The Bloods were considered the most wretched…when MS-13’s antics took the crown.
Yet again, we are presented with solid logic regarding the necessity of securing our border, and yet again, liberal lawmakers refuse to act.
