MS-13 is a problem. Gang violence in American cities is a problem. Just ask anyone living in those affected communities. This article does address that reality, thankfully.
But the violence is nothing new. Just the outrage. And unfortunately, instead of tackling the real dangers of gang violence, our federal state & local authorities are using the volatile issue as a political football. Are we actually going to make a difference with this new immigration roundup policy? Are we helping American citizens and the American economy, or are we hurting it?
My fear is that our current policies are going to weaponize the immigration backlash, creating the next ISIS, right on our front door. And I don’t think that any man-made wall is going to save us from that.
