Illegal Alien Gangs Commit Majority of Crime in U.S. — Gang of 8 Amped It Up

Do you know much about MS-13, the deadliest gang in America? Salvadoran roots mainly, or originally, but the organization has outreach to other ethnicities. Terrifyingly brutal. I remember when I first started blogging, and was thinking of writing about them, my son said something like, ‘Mom. you. cannot. do. that. Don’t even mention the name.’ MS-13 (Mara Salvatrucha), according to the FBI, follows the “migration paths of illegal alien laborers to avoid big-city police departments,” and then there’s that uncomfortable fact that police, under the Obama administration, cannot ask questions unless they see a crime committed. An MS-13 member need only say they’re a DREAMer and it might be a free ride (unless the tattoos and piercings are a disqualifier). The Department of Justice has handed the keys to America’s backdoor to the Sinaloa drug cartel, along with a steady weapons cache. Illegals of all types have been flooding over the border since the Senate Gang of 8 wrote and passed their traitorous immigration bill. Remember the Republicans behind it: Marco Rubio, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Jeff Flake.


The sign above, or a sign like it, was placed on Arizona border land by the government without Governor Jan Brewer’s knowledge.

We are being invaded, not by innocents who want to take our landscaping jobs or work in our hotels, but by drug cartels and terrorists entering our country illegally. We all need to start paying attention or we won’t have a country.

I was recently on a conference call with Dr. Mike Vickers and his wife Linda, ranchers living on the Texas border:

The cost of traveling from Mexico’s southern border, north to the U.S. border, is $900 plus the fee to cartels to cross into the U.S. — an organized pipeline for getting ‘Other Than Mexicans’ from the southern tip of Mexico to the U.S. border.

The cost of crossing our southern borders is now up to $7,000, paid to a drug cartel for passage. Mexicans mortgage their homes to cartel loan sharks in places like Honduras and Guatamala. Syria, Iran, Algeria, Bangladesh and others pay up to $20,000.

About three years ago, 17 percent coming across the border (not clear whether it Texas or Arizona or both) were coming from the Middle East, and of those stopped, one-half had some kind of tie to a terrorist element: al-Qaeda, al-Shabab (fill in the blanks, the usual groups were named).

In part of the Rio Grande Valley sector, 70 percent of illegal crossers are Other Than Mexican, largely from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatamala. 


On another recent conference call, Congressman Louis Gohmert said the House leadership is “hell bent” on amnesty, otherwise known as a pathway to citizenship. Can you image that in 2013, drug cartels were taking over Pennsylvania neighborhoods? It’s worse than we have imagined and it stretches from the deep south all the way north, and from sea-to-shining sea.

This is just the beginning. We cannot be stagnate and wait until the action starts in Congress. We need a steady stream of dissent flooding into House leadership: John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, Paul Ryan, Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Michael McCaul, Ed Royce and your own representatives. No matter where you stand on “immigration reform,” we should all agree that we must secure the border first, close the drug alleys, give Arizona and Texas back their lands, now controlled by some of the worst people in the world – what else do you call those involved in human trafficking? They are on our soil every day — soil where you cannot safely be. Soil that produces nothing for Americans. Soil that destroys lives, takes lives.

Visit Independent Sentinel and see where your state stands in this war. Doesn’t it make you madder than hell that “illegal alien gangs” commit the majority of crimes in the U.S.?

    Immigration, both legal and illegal, is/was always intended to benefit some special group or individuals. It is not in the public interest and only harms the citizens. Make no mistake immigration (both legal and illegal) as practiced in the U.S. is a profit making business for special interests and it is we the tax paying citizens who are paying for that profit with our taxes. Ask yourself do we really need 20 million illegals who refuse to assimilate, need welfare, take jobs while we have an astronomical unemployment rate and they evade paying taxes?

    • Charles Hammond Jr

      we can be a small government nation that allows people to immigrate freely or we can be a welfare state.

      We can’t be both.

      • Charles Hammond Jr, not sure I understand. “Small government” as in fewer taxes, well-spent and fewer regulations — but no “free” immigration, as in open borders. We are a sovereign nation, or should be. We are a welfare state now. Maybe we’re on the same page. Can’t tell.

        • Charles Hammond Jr

          By small government I do mean just that: less taxes, less regulation, less spending, more efficiency.

          If we’re going to give everyone who crosses the borders goodies then we can only let so many people cross over.

          If we’re not going to do that then we can be a bit more lenient over how many people cross over.

          I’m all for being the land of opportunity. The problem is that big government keeps turning everything they touch into crap… and the bigger it gets the more it touches.

          • Charles Hammond, Jr., I thought that was what you were saying, but wanted to make sure before I agreed with you. I see it same way.

            • Charles Hammond Jr

              It’s never a bad thing to get that checked.

              It’s safe to assume absolutely nothing these days.

    • GoneWithTheWind, we’ve fallen prey to the mantra that we must bring these people out of the shadows. That’s ridiculous. We have laws. We can still make them work but we will have to seriously change things in the next two elections. I don’t think we will ever have the political will to do it.

    The only answer is to close the border, which dems will not do. They are still going after the North American Corridor where Canada, Mexico, and the US have open borders. Bad idea. We need politicians who will stand up for the American way.

    • carlito

      It’s a very long border, 1,000 miles or so, so how would you be able to close it? With a wire fence that can be cut through with wire cutters? A thousand mile Berlin Wall (which was only a few miles in length and some people still got through)?

      • carlito, of course, it will never be perfectly secure, although it could be if we were willing to do what Israel has done. We’re not. You are right that there are places where fencing will not work — rivers and such and even some “mountains.” The kind of fence needed won’t be cut by wire cutters. It will be tall, strong and electrified with razor wire. An invader will have to go over two of them, if they make it over one. If we don’t want them to make it over one, they won’t make it over one. It’s a matter of will. The fence will free up other resources to focus on areas that are unfenceable. For those who do make it in, and there will be some, there’s an easy remedy. We send them back, unless we find them after they’ve committed a crime. In that event, we make them sorry they put foot on our soil.

        I’m just one of many who have been pushed to take a really hard stance on this issue. It is NOT our fault.

      • GoneWithTheWind

        I for one think we can close the border to illegal crossing for any reason. We have a very fine institution called the coast guard. Create a similar military institution called the border guard. Eliminate the largely ineffective civilian border patrol and replace it with a institution as honorable and as effective as our coast guard is. Appoint a General to run it with one mandate; no one and nothing crosses the border illegally. Every car, truck and donky cart gets searched and every individual gets checked against their passport to get in or out. Additionally I would like to see the congress make it a felony to be in the country illegally. (notice I did not say “enter” but IN the country illegally.) Then it would be illegal to aid and abet in any way anyone who was here illegally. That would include hiring them, housing them, feeding them or aiding them in any way. Then bill Mexico for any and all expenses that illegals have cost the taxpayer. Open up the courts for private citizens to sue Mexico for any harm illegals have caused them. I would imagine that just these changes would have a dramatic effect on illegal immigration.

    • Meg, very bad idea, I agree. We can close the border and there has to be some way that we make them do it.

  • You can thank all the COMMUNIST that allows this to happen, they are winning by destroying America as we know it. Did you know that Violating Oath of Office is a Federal Crime? IF you really want to take back America then you better start learning about the Oath of Office requirement.

    • Gary De Capua, I’ve talked about, and published, the oaths of office for various parts of the government numerous times. When Congress has no respect for the Rule of Law, they certainly have no respect for their own oaths.

  • carlito

    Maggie, did I miss something in your post? You state that Illegal Alien Gangs commit the majority of crime in the US, but do not cite any evidence.

    • carlito, sorry I wasn’t clearer about that. It’s linked under the “according to the FBI” link, and it comes from Judicial Watch.

      Criminal street gangs—mostly comprised of illegal immigrants—are responsible for the majority of violent crimes in the United States and are the primary distributors of most illicit drugs.

      The alarming, but not surprising, information is revealed in a new report published by the Justice Department’s National Gang Intelligence Center (NGIC), an FBI task force created in 2005 to curb the growing threat of violent gangs in the U.S. The NGIC teams up with state and local law enforcement agencies throughout the nation to enforce, study and intercept gangs and has published several reports documenting their activities.

  • TheTownCrier

    your link to “Visit Independent Sentinel and see where your state stands in this war.” doesn’t work….got another…would be nice to have some proof of your claim. Thanks!

    • TheTownCrier, I have it linked at least twice, and yes, it is gone. It has worked, as I have been able to see trafficking going there. I will contact Sara Noble, the author, to see what’s going on. Thanks for the heads-up.

      • TheTownCrier

        Thanks! There is this you might be interested in. And every other stat you’ll ever need at this blog.
        “More than HALF of all Federal prosecutions are of illegal aliens.
        In 2009, the U.S. Justice Department filed nearly 92,000
        immigration-related criminal cases in the federal courts. The
        record-breaking trend accounted for more than half of all new federal
        prosecutions in the country, according to Justice Department data
        maintained at Syracuse University..”
