    Border Patrol officials are swamped by the number of minors crossing illegally into the United States and frustrated that they can’t turn away known Mexican gang members. Chris Cabrera, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 3307 in the Rio Grande Valley, said that confirmed gang members in Mexico — including those from Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) — are coming into the country to be reunited with their families, National Review reported Friday. “If he’s a confirmed gang member in his own country, why are we letting him in here? … I’ve heard people come in and say, ‘You’re...

    SAN FRANCISCO -- San Francisco's biggest gang trial in many years ended today when a jury convicted six men of racketeering and conspiracy as members of MS-13, a crime organization that waged war against rivals and defectors in San Francisco's Mission District and was found responsible for at least three 2008 murders. A seventh defendant, Walter Cruz-Zavala, was acquitted. The six men face up to life in prison when sentenced Nov. 30. Jurors deliberated for a week after a federal court trial that lasted more than four months. Prosecutors portrayed the young men as leaders or soldiers of a heavily...

Writing letters from prison as well as establishing contact using MySpace, Twitter and Facebook, the gang members gained control over the girls and then advertised them using Craigslist and,...

    Suspected gang members who are in the country illegally and are arrested for even minor crimes could face quicker deportation under new policies unveiled Wednesday by the top two prosecutors in Los Angeles. City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo and L.A. County Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley said they are partnering more closely with federal immigration officials and attorneys to identify the gang members for deportation, adding that illegal immigrants appear to make up a significant portion of the gang population. The partnership with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement marks a departure for local law enforcement, which generally keeps federal immigration officials at...

    A recent spot check by federal agents found that 59 street gang members in Southern California jails are illegal immigrants subject to deportation. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement named the deportable gang members during a first-of-its-kind screening of some inmates last month. The review is continuing, and in the first year officials expect to identify up to 800 gang members who are in this country illegally, said Jim Hayes, director of the Los Angeles field office. The focus on inmates' immigration status comes as Los Angeles pushes for federal agencies to help crack down on gang crime. The report has...

    LOS ANGELES Three members of a Hispanic gang were sentenced Monday to life in prison without the possibility of parole for using murder and other violent acts to intimidate blacks in their neighborhood.

They were found guilty of conspiring to use violence, including the shooting deaths of two black men in 1999 and 2000. "These were horrific offenses that have had far-reaching consequences," U.S. District Judge Percy Anderson said during sentencing. Each defendant received...

    LEVITTOWN, Pennsylvania (June 6) - A deal is being negotiated that would allow a high school's class president to participate in Friday's graduation ceremony despite concern that he could be targeted by a gang.

Lewis had been barred from the ceremony. Dave Truelove, the Bristol Township School District's solicitor, confirmed Tuesday that talks are in progress...

    COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) — A Columbus man asked for directions early Monday, but the two pedestrians from whom he sought help stole his car instead. Keith Stroman, 21, told Columbus police he stopped his 1995 Chevrolet Camaro at an intersection on the south side of town around 2:50 a.m. to ask two men for directions. Instead of answering his question, one of the men pulled a silver gun and ordered Stroman out of his car. The carjackers got into the Camaro, valued at $4,000, and drove away, police said. Stroman was not injured.

Ramiro Pineda, 20, and William Ramirez, 22, were slapped with murder charges in the shooting death of Maria Rubio early Tuesday in a College Point apartment, cops said.

"Let's shoot the b----," one suspect said, and fired, hitting Rubio, a source said. "No,...
