Showdown at border?

We are hosting a violent, widespread Hispanic gang, called Mara Salvatruchas (or MS-13). Militarily trained in Central and South America, they have ready access to military arms and close ties with Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front, a radical terrorist group. U.S. intelligence sources say they are also cooperating with Islamic terrorist groups – including al-Qaeda.

The subject of hispanic gangs made up of illegal aliens is one that is convoluted and never mentioned in the same breath as "worker amnesty" or other such BS. By far, the most brutal and best organized crime syndicate is MS-13. I've included three links below.

This first link is about the MS-13 order to resist the Minuteman Project in April in Arizona.

This second link is from the Washington Times about how Al Qaeda has actively sought MS-13's aid in infiltrating our southern border, particularly through Brownsville.

This third link is an article from US News that gives plenty of details on the proliferation of illegal immigrant gangs, especially MS-13, and their effects on small cities and towns (near YOU) and law enforcement. The details are graphic, and reads like a scene out of CSI! [Speaking of which, did you guys see the gross CSI episode about the "narcocorridos" – Mexican folk songs that glorify drug traffickers? Ok, well, that's a whole 'nother blog!]
