MS-13 and other violent street gangs are aggressively recruiting illegal alien youth who recently arrived in America.

 

The gangs, which also include the Latin Kings and the Sureños, are targeting immigrant communities in New York and elsewhere across the country for recruits under the age of 18.

“I came from… [El Salvador] to get away from them [MS-13], but the same crime is happening here,” N.Y. resident Wilfredo Serrano told Fox News Latino. “Now they’ve been going after the new arrivals… kids who are very vulnerable and have already been through the worst in life.”

In N.Y. alone the gangs are vying to recruit from a pool of over 3,000 illegals who resettled in Nassau and Suffolk counties after last year’s massive surge of illegal immigration from Central America.

    So all those italian youths in the early 20th century also joined gangs. They were called the Mafia.
    I can understand why they joined. They were outnumbered by courts, law, and people taking advantage of their poverty.
    Only when those conditions were changed did they get away from their past.
    IF ever.
    Today’s youth face the same problem as those Italian youths only worse.
    Law is only as good as the people that enforce it and right now an entire third of our government does not wish to enforce it.
    So we are likely to have an entire generation of prisoners behind bars in the near future.
