Posted on 05/09/2005 9:30:05 PM PDT by Travis McGee
PHOENIX, Ariz. Federal authorities say members of a violent Mexican gang are using the Arizona border as a corridor to the country.
In the past year, Border Patrol agents have arrested about ten members of Mara Salvatrucha -- a notorious international street gang in Mexico.
Yet according to federal and local law enforcement officials, the gang members don't appear to stay in the state.
The gang is commonly known as M-S-13 and has been linked to murders from Honduras to Los Angeles to Virginia.
Original Mara Salvatrucha members were guerrilla fighters who fled the Salvadoran civil war in the 1980s.
Police gang unit supervisor Paul Ferrero says Phoenix is not a fertile ground for M-S-13 members because of other active Mexican-American gangs and the relatively small population of Central Americans here.
Thanks, Stormcrow. I'm sure that I've one or two packed away in all my Y2K supplies.
Well, they are only expendable middle class American peons who are being raped and murdered by Presidente Arbusto's guest criminals. What's important is dirt cheap illegal alien slave labor for his pals' businesses.
This just makes the rest of the article look like freshman grade work.
Protect our borders and coastlines from all foreign invaders!

I was thinking the same thing.
"'MS-13 is the only U.S. gang with a broad international reach. They recruit kids in middle school and we are seeing not only people from Central America joining their ranks. We are also seeing Mexican-Americans, Puerto Ricans and even white kids getting involved,' said Jared Lewis, director of 'Know Gangs,' who runs courses for police departments on how to recognize and combat gang activity."
You're right about that, but fortunately, the MSM has less and less power to set the agenda.
I am strongly against all illegal immigration, but IMHO the Mara Salvatrucha is an issue apart here. We need to begin treating them as a terrorist organization, because the fact is, they are.
I live in DC. They are everywhere. All you have to do is just go to the mall. Every single one of them should be deported.
"MS-13 is a Salvadoran gang. "
Not any more.
