If we are so stuck on our war on terror, why is this not being extended to the Mexican Gangs right next to us!

Mexico is harboring some of the most dangerous activity in the world and we are focused across the ocean for some reason now?

Why are they not considered terrorists. They come over our borders illegally and kill our citizens, and get a free pass on the terrorism card?!

Are you serious? If so, the reason why we don't have a "War on Mexican Gangs" is because they are just normal gangs on the street like any other. Why not fight the "War on Black Gangs" because that's more serious if you look at the history. Have you heard of the 90s Conflicts in Los Angeles?

Because the US Gov't wants them here.

Do some research and come back to me so you can substantiate your statement.

The question should be, why not legalize drugs and end the madness? Prohibition does not work.

Mexico is shielded by political correctness. God forbid the politicians might "offend" the Hispanic voters.

We know how to cripple these organized criminal enterprises.

We choose not to, even though Mexico is going down because of them.

ASk yourselves why when we have an easy and effective way of reducing these criminal enterprises, we continue not to take that path?

One can only conclude that we WANT this to happen.

Give them time. Right now most of the drone resources are needed over seas and only the CIA or the military can carry out assassinations with drone attacks. I believe within a year or two we will begin to see selective attacks on the drug lords, not only in Mexico but Columbia and other drug areas. Precedence has been set and as soon as the secret council in the White House that selects and authorizes targets for drone attacks changes its focus from the Middle East to the south it will happen.

ICE Arrests 5,270 Illegal Alien Gang Members in Dozens of U.S. Cities in Two-Year Period
October 14, 2011 – An analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), based on data provided by the Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), reveals that more than 5,000 individuals who were in the United States illegally and were affiliated with criminal gangs were arrested in 2009 and 2010.
The arrests were made through ICE’s Operation Community Shield, a program designed to crack down on gang activities in U.S. communities. Since its inception in 2005, ICE has arrested more than 8,000 gang members from more than 700 different gangs, according to the CIS. At an event last week on Capitol Hill, CIS’s director of policy studies, Jessica Vaughan, moderated a panel discussion of nine sheriffs from across the country who spoke about how Mexican drug cartels and illegal alien gangs are impacting communities and the need for more resources to secure the nation’s border with Mexico. Terry Johnson, sheriff of Alamance County, N.C., showed a photo of an illegal alien who had been executed in his jurisdiction. Johnson also showed a photo of a large quantity of weapons that had been found and seized by law enforcement from members of a Mexican drug cartel in a car obtained in his county.

“Law enforcement agencies are very concerned about these trends,” Vaughan told CNSNews.com. Vaughan, who has been collecting and analyzing ICE statistics on foreign gangs in the United States since 2005, said those trends include gangs that are well-financed, resourced and organized. They are also aided by a porous border and policies that can keep law enforcement from identifying and arresting illegal alien gang members, including those working with drug cartels, according to Vaughan. A map of the United States, which includes Alaska and Puerto Rico, was distributed at the event. It shows how widespread and numerous illegal alien gang operations are across the country, and the associated statistics reflect only those who were taken into ICE custody in 2009 and 2010. The map is divided into four categories and color-coded to reflect the number of arrests of “non-citizen” gang members from zero to 110, 110 to 220, 220 to 330 and 330 to 440.

The largest concentration of arrests – those ranging from 330 to 440 – were in Los Angeles, Calif., northern Georgia and Milwaukee, Wis. But the map shows that illegal alien gang members have been arrested in 2009 and 2010 in every single state and Puerto Rico with the exceptions of Vermont, North Dakota, West Virginia and Kentucky. High concentrations of arrests (220 to 330) took place in towns and cities in California, Texas, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. In a 2008 report on illegal alien gang activity in the United States by Vaughan and Jon D. Feere, the summary lays out the threat these gangs pose to the country.

“Immigrant gangs are considered a unique public safety threat due to their members’ propensity for violence and their involvement in transnational crime,” the report states. “The latest national gang threat assessment noted that Hispanic gang membership has been growing, especially in the Northeast and the South, and that areas with new immigrant populations are especially vulnerable to gang activity. “A large share of the immigrant gangsters in the most notorious gangs such, as Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), Surenos-13, and 18th Street are illegal aliens,” the report states. “Their illegal status means they are especially vulnerable to law enforcement, and local authorities should take advantage of the immigration tools available in order to disrupt criminal gang activity, remove gang members from American communities, and deter their return.”

MS-13 preying on under-aged girls...
:eek:
MS-13 gang is branching into underage prostitution, authorities say
November 13,`11 - The 12-year-old runaway was desperate — she was out of money and had no place to stay. So she turned to the one man her friends said could help: a top MS-13 gang member.
The day after they met at a party, the man drove the girl home, let her take a shower and gave her some fresh clothes. Then he told her, “We’re going to work.” At first, the girl didn’t understand what the man meant. But everything became horribly clear after they pulled into a pharmacy parking lot and she watched another gang member return to the car with a box of condoms. The next stop was her first customer. For three months, the girl was prostituted almost daily in dingy apartments, motels and even at an auto repair shop. The men paid $40 for 15 minutes of sex.

Disturbing in itself, the case also illustrates what authorities say is an emerging and troubling trend — the girl was not alone. The 12-year-old was one of dozens of prostitutes, many juveniles, being sold for sex in the Washington area by members of Mara Salvatrucha, also known as MS-13, the region’s largest and most dangerous street gang. In recent months, authorities have arrested four alleged MS-13 members or associates in Northern Virginia on federal prostitution-related charges involving juvenile victims. Three have been convicted. Last month, a federal judge sentenced the man who prostituted the 12-year-old to life in prison, calling it “the most difficult case I have ever listened to.”

71816103.jpg

The Mara Salvatrucha gang, the transnational gang known more colloquially as MS-13, is involved in criminal activities in most parts of Latin America, as well as the United States. The gang originated in Los Angeles and spread from there, and now has a large presence in Fairfax and Prince George’s counties.

In recent years, authorities say, MS-13 in the D.C. area has largely stepped back from the violent attacks that helped cement its national reputation as a street gang whose motto, “rape, control, kill,” instilled fear in many communities. Although the gang continues to engage in illegal activity ranging from extortion to drug dealing, the recent arrests signal that it is working to expand its criminal enterprises. “We have seen movement to the business side of the gang, with sex-trafficking appearing to be a source of income for them that it wasn’t a couple a years ago,” said Neil MacBride, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, who called the trend “vile and disgusting.”

Mara Salvatrucha, which has 1,500 to 3,000 local members, took root in Los Angeles in the mid-1980s with men from El Salvador who had fled the violent civil war in their country. The gang came to prominence in the Washington region after a series of brutal attacks in the last decade. MS-13 members fatally stabbed a pregnant teenager after learning she was a federal witness and used a machete to sever four fingers from a 16-year-old boy’s hand. The gang has been linked to shootings and baseball bat beatings.
