In Maryland the notorious street gang MS-13 "is connected to a rash of kidnappings of young girls" as reported by WJZ: "in some cases, MS-13 has lured in girls by promising them friendship and security, but then held them against their will and sold them for sex." The gangbangers also are "recruiting children as young as 11-years-old" from the Maryland schools to fill its ranks according to the WJZ story: "'we are seeing an increase in recruiting in high schools and middle schools, which is alarming to us,' says Jay Lanham with the Regional Gang Task Force."
A big money-making racket for MS-13 cliques across the United States is child prostitution. In recent years a dozen MS-13 gang members in Northern Virginia "have been locked up for child sex trafficking" as reported by WJLA: "'we're seeing most of the cases coming from MS-13 with regards to sex trafficking and we've seen a number of those cases from the past year,' said John Torres, Special Agent in Charge with ICE Homeland Security Investigations," and "it's a disturbing trend."
Law enforcement across the United States has cited the illegal flood of young boys from Central America as providing fresh recruits for MS-13. Last June David LeValley, special agent in charge at the FBI's Washington Field Office, said the expanding presence of MS-13 is responsible for a dramatic uptick of violent crime in Northern Virginia as reported by WJLA: "The mass migration of unaccompanied minors from Central America into the States in 2014 created a whole new crop of recruits. And these young men, some of them just 14 or 15 years old, are committing horrific crimes, such as decapitation and stoning."
And in January 2016 federal authorities busted 56 suspects on racketeering charges for their alleged roles with MS-13 involving drugs and murder in Boston, MA as reported by The Boston Globe: "several of the suspects are in the country illegally, officials said." The apparent degenerates recruited young boys from high schools according to U.S. Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz as reported by the Boston Herald: "MS-13 actively recruited prospective members, known as 'paros,' inside local high schools from communities with significant immigrant populations from Central America," and "prospective members were typically 14 or 15 years old."
Two years ago Mafia Princess Nancy Pelosi insisted that the illegal children crossing into the United States from Central America were like the Baby Jesus in swaddling clothes who should be embraced with open arms, and at that time this blogger presciently noted that "not all children are as harmless as the Baby Jesus, and the street gangs will have a recruiting bonanza as the Obama Administration unloads tens of thousands of teen boys with no legitimate prospects on unsuspecting communities across the United States."
