    It takes a lot of documentation to prove that this is a single criminal entity, versus a lot of small splinter groups operating autonomously under the same name (which has generally been the law enforcement take on MS-13). You also have to make a case for the group operating in a hierarchical fashion and having jointly held assets.

    Any kind of criminal conspiracy is hella hard to prove and requires a lot of documentation. When you're documenting an international criminal organization, it gets even harder.

    Impossible. Until Trump, the U.S. declared all MS-13 activity as perfectly legal, and even desirable.
