When the U.S. stepped up deportations of criminals in the 1990s, they brought their brutal habits with them to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, countries with weak law enforcement and an inadequate prison system. The result was growing violence among gang members, and widespread police abuse as authorities rounded up suspects for having gang-affiliated tattoos. Some, like many of the 355 killed in Tuesday's fire in Comayagua, were never even charged with a crime.
"It was just a perfect storm, where they arrived in a country that was unprepared and had no infrastructure," said Los Angeles police Detective Frank Flores, who has been battling U.S. gangs with Central American ties since 1999.

Good riddance to foreign garbage. Hopefully they won't find their way back here. Unfortunately the current generation of anchor babies are replacing them as I type this.

That crap is almost hilarious -- they act like WE created those criminals but our homicide rates are significantly lower than the countries illegals are coming from.

They bring their lack of respect for all laws with them, when we send them back it's as though we somehow forced them into a life of crime.

Well sad I guess that they had to suffer and die but their own countries really don't want them and they'll never fit in here.

The real tragedy is when you consider what has caused this huge number of gang criminals in those countries.

This is all the result of massive illegal immigration where parents easily abandon their young children in their lust for easy American dollars. These abandoned children end up being raised by the street gangs, they find a new "family" in the gangs that replaced the cold-hearted parents who left them to fend for themselves.

The reason these violent street gang types head to the USA is not because they have any work ethic or want to do hard work for low pay, they are sad youth trying to find long lost fathers and mothers. They hope to reunite with the same parents that abandoned them years ago, try to find some kind of life that was taken from them but it's far too late for them. They're already very damaged, very violent and deadly killers.

Their rotten parents don't really give a damn about them, no, as long as the parents are rolling in the green stuff, what becomes of their children back home is of no concern.

The sad thing about it is prior to coming here they are fully aware that their illegal entry will only lead to the commission of further criminal activity. Their lack of logic and common sense will forever boggle my mind.

The really sad thing is that many of these kids were dumped on the streets by money loving parents who destroyed their own childrens' lives, the love of easy money was just more important than the lives of their children.


18th street gang story Part 3 - YouTube

The BBC had a very good documentary about the lives of these gang kids -- watch especially around 5.10, the kid who was abandoned at age 11 to be raised by these street gangs, talking with the mother who abandoned him. She's living high on the hog in the USA, and it's very clear she doesn't give a damn what happens to him, what his life has become.

Sadly, the children that illegals birth in the US are nothing more than the primary source of income and their trump card to remain in the US. I would even go so far as to state that from the start they are unloved and unwanted which is why so many of them grow up to be gang bangers, murderers and thugs that end up in jail or dead.

Because they are ficitiously declared American citizens at birth, I think it's safe to say that the future generations of the US is pretty much doomed.
