The gang exists, thanks to our open borders. That's enough for me.
This gang, like most gangs, were created inside the U.S.

What does it matter where they were created? Who are they COMPOSED OF. That's what matters as far as I'm concerned. That, and how the heck to get RID of them.

these types of gangs and violence as the rest of us are. And just because

MS-13 is currently the more well known and malicious gang on the streets,

it doesn't change the fact that we still have plenty of our own homegrown

thugs running around. Sure, this MS-13 is the meanest thing on the street

right now, but there is always someone meaner waiting to take their place.

A tighter leash on illegal immigration may help somewhat in stemming the

tide of new recruits, but just like the Crips and Bloods I think MS is here to

stay. And while all illegals are law-breakers, they can't be solely blamed for

the rise of MS-13. Particularly since it isn't even a Mexican born gang. It

rose in El Salvador, through the misguided violence and anger of the

younger generation who had lived through the constant violence and death

of civil war. What began as a band of youngsters just trying to survive

has turned into the blood thirsty gang we see today. It is terribly troubling,

but also nothing new and certainly nothing we can really blame on the

Mexican population at large in the US.

Good post.

Getting rid of gangs? That's an entirely different subject.
