Immigration rallies

If you didn’t hear that was a huge pro-illegal immigrant rally yesterday in DC. Organizers hoped for hundreds of thousands to protest similar to the protests earlier this year. The only problem was that only a few thousand showed even though pro-illegal immigration supporters were bused in from up and down the east coast. Even with the help of Teddy “Ask not what you can do for your country, but demand what the country you have illegally entered will do for you” Kennedy was there.
The pro-illegal immigration movement is losing steam, and although those against illegal immigration can rarely produce a protest of more than a few hundred, the talk in Washington is that many of the House’s resolutions to combat illegal immigration will be tacked on to other appropriations bills. Sorry Teddy, but it looks like those who respect the laws just might win in the end.

Do we have concerns about who comes into our country? I hope so.
The Most Dangerous Gang in America
MS-13.
By Arian Campo-Flores
Newsweek
"Two summers ago the body of a young woman who had informed against her former gang associates was found on the banks of the Shenandoah River, repeatedly stabbed and her head nearly severed. Last May in Alexandria, gang members armed with machetes hacked away at a member of the South Side Locos, slicing off some of his fingers and leaving others dangling by a shred of skin. Only a week later in Herndon, a member of the 18th Street gang was pumped full of .38-caliber bullets, while his female companion, who tried to flee, was shot in the back. The assailant, according to a witness, had a large tattoo emblazoned on his forehead. It read MS, for Mara Salvatrucha, the gang allegedly responsible for all these attacks."
"Composed of mostly Salvadorans and other Central Americans-many of them undocumented-the gang has a uniquely international profile, with an estimated 8,000 to 10,000 members in 33 states in the United States..."
"...a gang leader accused of orchestrating a December bus bombing in Honduras that killed 28 people was arrested in Texas in February, and a recent seven-city sweep by ICE netted more than 100 reputed MS-13 members."
MS-13does business in illegal immigrant trafficking over the border (the Spanish term for those who do this is coyote), as well as carrying drugs, weapons, and other munitions. Many members in the United States have been illegally smuggled into the country. MS also does business in narcotics, arms dealing, prostitution, and theft and robbery. Recently in June 2006 a report out of California confirmed that for a member to be sworn into the gang the member would have to assault or even kill a female. In Central America, the killing of a member of a rival gang is often used.
They may have originated in L.A. but most of their crimes involve crossing the border with impunity

Bobkatt, you have some information about MS-13, but only the smallest tip of the iceberg. Look up MS-13 on my site alone and you will learn more. Just search on this site for MS-13 and you can read some previous posts that I have made.
They are the largest gang in the US, and they virtually run El Salvador.

Thanks Publius, I was just trying to keep the current readers focused on the enormous danger of open borders and the Pollyannaish attitude shared by the open border proponents. It's amazing that a large number of our population aren't even aware of the gangs and the "legitimate" support groups actively working in this country. MSM is consciously ignoring many of these important issues. Keep up the good work.

Well most of the info I get about these gangs is from the mainstream media, but because I have an interest in the topic maybe I just pay better attention. If the media really wanted people to know about it, they could. Think about how much we know about John Mark Karr and that was because the media decided to tell us. But with this, they are leaving it up to the people too find out more and instead of doing their job or reporting the news to keep people informed and safe, they give us very little about nothing.
