Seven Facts about MS-13 and How to Combat the Gang

Can’t say yet I agree with the "How to Combat the Gang” section. But I found the 7 facts informative. It is more complicated than they are all “animals”.

Here is Fox News take on the gang.

And here is Wikipedia’s take.

Well if the Trump administration is going after them, then I feel safe and secure. :lol:

This is just political grandstanding as far as Trump is concerned and the outcome will be the same that accompanies anything his administration attempts, which is zero. This is to fire up the racists in his base. One of the real solutions to problems such as this is increasing the presence, and training, of law enforcement to a level that succeeds. Trump and some conservative Republicans, especially those who don't want the wealthy to have to be troubled to pay for anything, will never invest in any of that. You'll hear tweeting and lip flapping from Trump, some applause from his mindless supporters, and you'll see an increase in the gang violence.

Agreed, I’d call it another PR job aimed at lumping well meaning immigrants in with gang members. His intended end results are:
- more deportations of dreamers and other contributing immigrants
- but mostly more demagoguery towards re-election (God forbid)
