  • MS-13: Just Trump's Boogeyman?

    02/24/2018 5:58:01 AM PST · by Kaslin · 18 replies ^ | February 24, 2018 | Ron Hosko
    Donald Trump, well known for exaggeration and colorful language, could easily be dismissed when waving a finger at faceless ‘bad hombres’ coming across our southern border and insisting on construction of a “big, beautiful wall” to protect us.  His embellishments aside, it’s fair to question whether MS-13 is simply a Trump boogeyman, a gang hyped beyond its capability being worked as a clapper against the president’s bell of nationalism and anti-immigration fear-mongering.  Trump grabbed our attention during his State of the Union address by introducing four still-grieving parents painfully gripped by the murder of their daughters at MS-13 hands on Long Island....
  • Trump considers pulling ICE out of California to let the state learn

    President Donald Trump said on Thursday that hes considering pulling Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers out of California. Why? Because he feels the state is giving his administration no help in targeting the violent MS-13 gang, especially in Los Angeles. Were getting no help from the state of California, Trump said from the White House. Frankly, if I wanted to pull our people from California you would have a crime nest like youve never seen in California. All Id have to do is say ICE and border patrol, let California learn. Trump made those remarks during a meeting at...

    The vicious MS-13 gang, stifled under former President George W. Bush, exploded during the Obama era fueled by 300,000 illegals, including those given amnesty under the DACA program, and has now been linked to crimes in 22 states, according to a new report. Since 2012, 207 murders have been tied to the gang called Mara Salvatrucha, and there are over 500 cases nationwide of MS-13 members being charged in major crimes, according to the report from the Center for Immigration Studies.

    A Republican lawmaker wants to strip U.S. citizenship from foreign-born gang members, in response to escalating violence from MS-13 and other immigrant-based gangs. The bill by Rep. Lee Zeldin, New York Republican, is titled Protecting our Communities from Gang Violence Act and would revoke the naturalization of anyone who becomes involved in gang activity either 10 years before or 10 years after taking the U.S. citizenship oath.

    An MS-13 gang member in Texas was sentenced to 99 years behind bars after he was convicted of killing a man to achieve a higher position within the violent organization, officials said. Jonathan Steven Guevara, 21, was handed the lengthy sentence by a jury on Tuesday for killing Hector Daniel Diaz, 28, in November 2015, according to a news release from the Harris County District Attorneys office. The jurys verdict and sentence on the case we presented speaks volumes about societys judgment of this vicious behavior, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said. We will hold these gangs accountable, convict...

    A female human trafficking victim too young to legally drive a car or buy a lottery ticket was savagely beaten with a bat by a pack of incensed MS-13 members, Montgomery County Police say. Late last month, Ivan Alexis Pena-Rodriguez, 20, Yervin Josue Romero-Rivera, 21, and Miguel Angel Ayala-Rivera, 24, were all formally charged with first-degree assault, plus other assorted criminal counts. According to court documents obtained by WJLA, Montgomery County authorities served a search and seizure warrant

    State legislators, the states entire congressional delegation and local protesters on Thursday stepped up criticism of the publication of a syndicated political cartoon, which many called racist, on the editorial page of Wednesdays Albuquerque Journal. Roughly 50 people protested Thursday evening outside the Journal offices, and the cartoon prompted a 30-minute critique from the state Senate floor and a swirl of social media criticism. Hundreds of angry readers also called, many demanding an apology. Journal editor Karen Moses issued an apology Thursday morning and later said in an interview that there will be more scrutiny of editorial cartoons in the...

    The Albuquerque Journal ^ | February 7, 2018 | Dan Boyd and Michael Coleman
    SANTA FE An editorial cartoon published in the Journal came under fire Wednesday from elected officials including both of New Mexicos U.S. senators and others for being misguided and bigoted. The syndicated cartoon showed an apparently frightened white couple being accosted at gunpoint by members of MS-13, an international criminal gang targeted by President Donald Trump whose members are primarily from Central America. U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich, a Democrat who is running for re-election this year, lambasted the cartoon on social media, while state Sen. Linda Lopez, D-Albuquerque, described it as an example of ignorance, racism and...

    American border officials cannot refuse to let in gang members who either sneak in or show up at ports of entry along the U.S.-Mexico border, government officials said Tuesday as they pleaded for congressional action to close loopholes gang members are exploiting. When they come to our border I have to let them in, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said at a White House roundtable. This is unique to our country, and its got to change, President Trump chimed in. Mr. Trump has made highlighting and combatting MS-13 a major tenet of his immigration policy, and his aides bolstered his...

    This came up in my recommended videos on You Tube. Just under 5 minutes long from last March. I thought I'd post the video in light of the Dems' recent despicable behaviour the other night at the SOTU. I know many of us here are aware of the story, but it's worth a reminder for us that are already awake, and a wake up call for those that are slow to rouse. And also worthy to remember just out of common decency for this man and his family's personal pain. They, the left, show their TRUE colours EACH day. It's...

    > SNIP < Reid's comments referred to Trump's mention of the gang in the State of the Union -- the part of the address where he acknowledged the family. Another pair of parents who also had a child that fell victim to MS-13, Evelyn Rodriguez and Freddy Cuevas, were in attendance and received recognition. "He gives a speech tonight, in which he makes it sound like the biggest issue in the United States, the biggest threat is MS-13, a gang nobody that doesn't watch Fox News has ever heard of. So he makes it sound like they're the biggest threat,"...

    Hot ^ | February 2, 2018 | JAZZ SHAW
    After the State of the Union speech, Ed brought up the President’s reference to victims of MS-13, one of the larger and certainly most bloody gangs in the country. (They’re estimated to have more than 10K members in the U.S. and unknown numbers in other countries.) In predictable fashion, some of Trump’s critics immediately felt the need to disparage the choice, insinuating that the attention given the gang was only meant to gin up hostility toward Latino immigrants. Few, however, were quicker off the mark than MSNBC’s Joy Reid, who took to Twitter during the address to make that point....

    Often-misinformed MSNBC star Joy Reid is under the impression that international criminal gang MS-13 isnt a major issue and the only people that have even heard of the thugs are regular viewers of Fox News. During Tuesdays State of the Union address, President Trump kicked off the immigration portion of his speech by detailing the horror of two teenage girls who were killed by MS-13, an international crime gang comprised mainly of El Salvador immigrants, while their parents were in the building. Two precious girls were brutally murdered while walking together in their hometown, Trump said. Four men associated with...

    President Trump's State of the Union Address was, for the most part, quite conservative -- and, I suspect, quite effective with viewers.  Whether it will have any lasting impact remains to be seen, but I'd be surprised, given the hyperdrive pace of today's news cycles and the president's uncanny ability to step on his own message. Let's start with some highlights:(1) Trump's defense of tax reform.  As I wrote on Tuesday morning, the president had a precious opportunity to sell his top legislative achievement to a populace that's been warming to the policy, but still has doubts (some rooted in...

    They scowled as President Trump touted soaring jobs numbers, sat stone-faced when he honored veterans, and one even walked out after becoming triggered by a patriotic chant. Democrats at President Trump's first State of the Union, after a year of partisan rancor, showed they were in no mood to accept his call for bipartisanship. "Why are @TheDemocrats not applauding job growth, higher wages and the drop in Latino and African-American unemployment?" pollster Frank Luntz asked in a tweet. "I thought economic success is good for everyone regardless of party." Rep. Luis Gutierrez walked out after chants of "USA, USA!" erupted...

    It is difficult to imagine a more galling demonstration of incivility than the Democrats in the room for Trump's SOTU speech.They scowled, frowned, and sat on their hands throughout the speech. They could hardly be bothered to acknowledge the heroes in the audience when they were introduced. While the Dems brought illegal immigrants, Trump invited actual paragons of American character and the families of victims of illegal immigrant crimes, as well as a victim of North Korea. It was embarrassing, like watching the anti-Semites in the UN stomp out of the room when Benjamin Netanyahu speaks. How is it any...
