Four MS-13 gangbangers from the Plainfield Locos Salvatrucha clique in New Jersey have received life sentences for their roles in three murders as reported by NJ.com.
MS-13 is a transnational gang based in El Salvador but further operates in 40 U.S. states with about 8,000 members. Its money-making rackets principally include drug trafficking, child prostitution and extortion demands against Hispanic businesses.
Law enforcement across the United States has cited the illegal flood of young boys from Central America as providing fresh meat for MS-13. For example, last July 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 last February 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 Congresswoman 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."
