MS-13 criminal activity was “stifled” during the GW Bush years but following the election of Barack Obama, in particular following his re-election in 2012, MS-13 criminal activity exploded right along with the number of sanctuary cities. Obama’s prejudiced policy not to prosecute minority offenders and his lax immigration policy undoubtedly contributed to the rise of the deadly gang. The The Washington Examiner outlines a report by The Center for Immigration Studies:
President Trump has pledged to crack down on the gang and deport those in the United States illegally, and report author Jessica M. Vaughan suggested that it can’t happen soon enough.
Detailing how the gang rebuilt itself under Obama’s open-border immigration policies, she said, “this resurgence represents a very serious threat to public safety in communities where MS-13 has rebuilt itself. The resurgence is directly connected to the illegal arrival and resettlement of more than 300,000 Central American youths and families that has continued unabated for six years, and to a de-prioritization of immigration enforcement in the interior of the country that occurred at the same time.”
The research she supervised at the immigration think tank found that MS-13 concentrations were in areas where so-called “unaccompanied alien children” were put under Obama, including Virginia, California, Maryland and New York. They included those participating in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals who Democrats in Congress are fighting for.
She cited an example of a Maryland DACA recipient charged with gang activity who urged pals in El Salvador to take advantage of Obama’s policies:
One MS-13 clique leader in Frederick, Md., who had received a DACA work permit and was employed as a custodian at a middle school in Frederick, Md., and who was recently incarcerated for various gang-related crimes, reportedly was told by gang leaders in El Salvador to take advantage of the lenient policies on UACs to bring in new recruits, knowing that they would be allowed to resettle in the area with few questions asked. Several of these unaccompanied minors now have been arrested and incarcerated for various crimes, including a vicious random attack on a sheriff’s deputy in 2015.
Crime, torture and theft are the trademarks of the gang.
The same party that uses school children to agitate for gun control also shelters these hard core MS-13 criminals in sanctuary cities!
Why would anyone trust Democrats to lead our nation or create safe spaces for our children?
