Yes it is. I've been reading all of these threads (there's a scary one in the FL forum also) and the question that keeps coming to my mind is, "Why don't we see more coverage about this on all the news programs?" When is the media going to admit this is a big problem and Americans are angry? Until people can grab their attention and until the media starts making discussions like this and the problems illegals cause more open, I can't see the politicians paying attention.

No doubt, it's a BIG problem in my home state of WA and if it already hasn't touched everyone on this forum in some way, it definitely will soon.

Honestly, it sounds bad, but I don't believe that politicians will begin to take it seriously until their family members are assaulted by an illegal gang member or something like that (they are 19 times more likely to join gangs such as MS-13). They only see the illegals as the hard-working people cleaning up their mansions. They refuse to see, or are completely ignorant to, what is happening on the streets of LA and neighborhoods all over this country.
