Nabbing illegals - ICE's anti-gang initiative, Operation Community Shield tracking 80 gangs
WashTimes ^ | August 3, 2005

Posted on 08/02/2005 10:35:43 PM PDT by Happy2BMe

Since there are about 5,000 members of the murderous Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang in the Washington area, it's hard to get too excited about the apprehension of 11 in the past few weeks.

< snip >

The problem also casts a dark shadow over immigration policies, although we needed no further evidence. Immigration enthusiasts often argue that the majority of illegal aliens come to this country to find honest work. The problem is that while most are not associated with criminal organizations like MS-13, many are indebted to them.

How difficult would it be to check out folks hanging around the 7/11's and the ethnic bars and trace through them the whole gang bunch? It's not like they aren't locatable; it's more like the powers that be don't want to look.

In ways, you can't hardly blame them (for not wanting to look) . .

Staging a press conference on this sums up the real commitment the government has on tackling this problem. Anyone with any street smarts can walk through an urban area in New Jersey and round up over 1000 gang members in the matter of an hour. In a 12 block radius.

Until these '1000 arrested today' news conferences are '10000 arrested today' news conferences, more gang members are entering the US than the US LE Agencies at all levels are taking off the streets daily.

The feds are bailing the Titanic with a teaspoon, and bragging about it.

Meanwhile, the bottom of the ship is flooding a million gallons a minute.

And the 1000 will be deported, to spend a month on vacation, before walking back across the border.

The problem with these guys is that they're so hardcore soullessly evil that they scare most of our professional law enforcement. Consider them irredeemable insurgents at war with our way of life while having no respect for anything except the power of coercion.

While the law dictates such creatures deserve a fair trial I sincerely believe well placed Hydrashocks are the best overall solution. A few weeks of one cop's trauma versus a scumbag running rampant spreading misery over years. Kick me off jury selection now (heh heh).

I'm with you. I also think this whole thing, while it has been positive, is being used as a smoke screen to avoid the issue of the millions of other illegal "heroes" (you know, the honorable illegal who is a good Christian just trying to put food on his table) that are being ignored.

13 of them were just grabbed up here in Providence, RI.

I'm sure it's only a matter of time before they come to the suburbs.

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!

These arrests are all meaningless token PR gestures. The deportees will be back in a week.

What we need is the one thing the feds won't do, because it would work, and in truth, they don't want to stop the cheap labor immivasion.

Until they build a modern, effective border fence system, it's all just a joke.

582 Violent Gang Members and Associates Arrested under Operation Community Shield

During a two-week, nationwide enforcement action ICE has arrested 582 street gang members and associates. This initiative harnessed the work of 40 ICE offices and more than 84 federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. The arrests during the past two weeks are the latest enforcement action under Operation Community Shield, a nationwide ICE anti-gang initiative intended to disrupt, dismantle, and assist in the criminal prosecution of violent gangs by employing the full range of authorities available to ICE. In May 2005, ICE expanded Operation Community Shield to include all criminal street gangs and prison gangs with foreign-born members. With the launch of this second phase, ICE’s Operation Community Shield aims to ensure that gang members have no safe haven in our nation’s communities.

So what? The taxpayers will have to pay thousands for their defense attorneys, and then they'll all be put on probation and turned free. I have an idea, send them all to DC. They deserve criminal gangs, since most politicians would fit right in.

I have learned from LEO's that MS-13 leaders are moving into small towns for their residences because the local police force is not very large or sophisticated. No crimes are being committed there, just using the towns for the same reason we like them, the peace and quiet.

The U.S. government hasn't given a proverbial rat's posterior about foreign criminal gangs in the last thirty years. This so-called crackdown is just a PR stunt to grease the skids for for amnestia.

The obvious question is why in hell did it take 20 years for the INS to do anything about this?

FYI - MS13 is very likely embedded in each of the lower 48 states - they like small neighborhoods.

Confirm Indiana, and confirm the *small town* posit. The population of Monticello, IN is around 6000.

You must be hoping to find me relating to you as one human being to another as I tried to the other day (National Night Out With Heavy Focus On Gangs). Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice - not in a million years. Go play with the Red Queen or someone else without a soul.

Nightline's for Liberals, anyway.
