MS-13’s activities have helped make the Northern Triangle — Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras — the most violent place in the world that is not at war. In October 2012, the US Department of the Treasury labeled the group a “transnational criminal organization,” the first such designation for a US street gang, but their criminal proceeds do not even approach those of their counterparts on that list.
Right now the United States deports one hundred MS-13 members per week back to El Salvador.
Tucker Carlson reported on the danger they present back in 2017.
United States and Mexican lawmen going after border’s ‘most wanted’ criminals
Take your pick_they’re all dangerous…MS-13, Sinaloa, Jalisco New Generation.
Posters with photographs of cartel operatives are being placed at ports of entry, public places in Texas and Mexican communities.
The “Se Busca Informacion” (Information Wanted) campaign consists of identifying 10 top targets of law-enforcement, putting up their photograph on posters and billboards near ports of entry and setting up toll-free anonymous tip lines.
But what about the tens and hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants coming across at locations other than border crossings?
So now President Trump wants to declare some of the largest narco cartels terrorist organizations, why will that help? Listen to an expert on the subject, Brandon Darby.
The United States must step forward and declare some of the Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations, said Breitbart Texas Managing Director Brandon Darby during an interview with C-SPAN.
“Most of the politicians in the border states are actually surrogates or have been surrogates of the criminal organizations that control those regions,” Darby said during a live taping in the border city of Laredo of the C-SPAN show Washington Journal. “Ultimately it’s going to take that (declaring cartels as terrorists) to stop them.”
As a terrorist organization, the U.S. could go after the corrupt politicians that protect them, the banks that funnel their money and other entities that the criminal organizations rely on. The measure is the same that authorities eventually did with narco-terrorist in Colombia such as the FARC, he said. While there are drug cartels like the Sinaloa Federation that tend to leave the public alone for the most part, in the case of the Gulf Cartel and Los Zetas, the brutality with which those cartels victimize the innocents is enough to warrant the title.”
There will be U.S. politicians on both sides of the fence caught up in supporting illegal immigration made possible by the cartels. Democrats think they’ll get their votes if they let them in, and Republican businesses want the cheap labor.
Time will tell how serious the U.S. and President Trump are about waging war against the cartels.
