The degenerate street gang MS-13 exists in 40 states with about 8,000 members, and yesterday the feds busted its clique in Plainfield, NJ with a sweeping racketeering indictment as reported by The Star-Ledger: "it alleges leaders would 'greenlight' the murders and assaults of rival gang members, order the extortion of 'inactive' members of its own gang, and that some coerced underage girls into having sex."
Child sex appears to be popular for many of the MS-13 cliques and their gang members.
For example, in Northern Virginia 12 MS-13 gang members "have been locked up for child sex trafficking in the past two years" as reported by Pamela Brown for 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. "For us it's a disturbing trend."
Last October the Treasury Department designated MS-13 as a transnational criminal organization under Executive Order 13581 which freezes their U.S. assets and bans Americans from conducting business with them, and in a follow-up move added six of the gang's purported leaders to the economic blacklist as reported by Jerry Seper for The Washington Times.
