The violent street gangs run the child sex trade thoughout the United States.
Yesterday the Chicago Police Department arrested nine individuals for their alleged roles in a "'major' human sex trafficking operation run by Vice Lords and other gang members on the South and West Sides" as reported by Rummana Hussain and Mitch Dudek for the Chicago Sun-Times: "some of the victims were as young as 12 when they were recruited to work as prostitutes."
Last month an MS-13 member was convicted for pimping out a 12-year-old girl in the Washington, D.C. area, and other reputed members from that clique are accused of involvement with the child sex racket as reported by Emily Babay for The Washington Examiner.
A major child prostitution ring allegedly run by the Oceanside Crips in North County, CA was busted last April as reported by Lindsay Hood for NBC:
"During the investigation, detectives found 30 female minors who claimed they were being held by the gangs against their will. * * * The gang members would target runaways or girls from broken homes. Investigators allege the gang members would often gift the women and girls to each other. The prostitutes would be punished through physical violence if they disobeyed their pimps."
In October 2010 the feds indicted 29 men and women for their alleged roles in decade-long interstate child sex trafficking operation run by Minneapolis, MN-based Somalian street gangs which forced girls as young as twelve into prostitution as reported by the Star Tribune.
California Assemblyman Marty Block said street gang members "are recruiting teenage girls for prostitution in schools and 'selling them over and over'" as reported by KPBS: "Where drugs can only be sold once, girls are a 'renewable resource for gangs,' he said."

A symptom of a wide open border
Yep....coming to a city near you, unless the law gets some cajones, which I doubt will happen today.
very, very sad.
I would use RICO to make mere membership in gangs like MS-13 a crime. You are affiliated with MS-13. You get 5 years without parole and deported if appropriate on release. No exceptions. 5 years later - you are still in MS-13, back to jail you go. I would build 5 new prisons in Alaska for it. Also, cut off welfare and all general assistance for any family who’s child joins a gang. Sure that is harsh, but you can be sure it would get the parents involved in really trying to prevent their kids joining gangs.
We need to go nuclear on gangs. We also need to end the drug war. No demand=no motivation for gangs. Take the profit motive out of it.
Democrats are way too compassionate to criminals for that..
Where ever democrats are in charge the FOX is in the henhouse..
In many places republicans are in charge they parasitize the democrats.. like leeches.. or ticks... for profit..
Current republicans must be judged on past performance..
Some republicans are as evil as those they elect..
Parties are becoming OBSOLETE...
So many of society’s problems could be solved by what militant feminists consider society’s biggest problems; DADS!!!
