Daily Rant

On February 12th at 8:00 p.m. E.T., the National Geographic Channel will televise a special on the El Salvadorian gang MS-13. I encourage and hope any and all of you who read this will watch this special. MS-13 is the most dangerous organization in America today. Originally founded in Los Angeles, MS-13 members were El Salvadorian immigrants, here in this country both legally but most illegally, who formed the organization as a means of protecting themselves from rival Mexican gangs in LA. The MS-13 members were often deported back to their home country for being here illegally or would return home to fight as guerillas in the El Salvadorian civil war during the late 1980s. During this war, the gang members learned guerilla fighting tactics and the use of firearms, bobby traps, and explosives. These guerilla fighters returned to the U.S. and the gang has since spread beyond its original purpose of protecting El Salvadorian immigrants from Mexican gangs, and now includes members of various Hispanic origins. As of 2005, MS-13 is estimated to have 50,000 members in Central America and between 8,000 and 10,000 members here in the U.S. MS-13 is involved in such activities as murder, drug and human trafficking, and general mayhem. This organization is more violet, deadly, and numerous than the Italian Mafia in any point of its history.
The word “Mara” in Spanish means gang, while the word “Salvatrucha” is Salvadorian slang for being alert or ready, as in being prepared to commit a crime. The number 13 has long been used to represent Hispanic gangs in Southern California and the letter M is the 13th letter of the alphabet. It has also been rumored that the 13 may represent the American judicial system where a 12 man jury plus 1 judge equals 13.
For those who believe in open borders and find policies to curb illegal immigration as racist, I encourage you to see exactly what happens when America does not defend her borders. For those who believe the government is not doing enough to protect America from illegal immigration I encourage you to watch the chilling details of what is happening in Los Angles, Long Island, Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia. In August of 2005, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested 1,057 gang members, 582 of whom were members of MS-13. Ignorance is not an excuse.
