MS-13 Extorting Legitimate Latino Business Owners in DC Suburb
“The powerful gang Ms-13 is extorting Latino-owned businesses in the D.C. suburbs, Montgomery County police chief Thomas Manger said Wednesday in testimony before the Senate.
“We have heard from community members that the gangs, which historically extorted money solely from illicit businesses such as ‘bordellos’ and unlicensed ‘cantinas,’ are now collecting ‘rent’ from legitimate Latino business owners and residents in certain apartment complexes” Manger told the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee. “In some instances, if the victims of this extortion refuse to pay the fee demanded by the gang, the gang members return with detailed information on the intended victims’ family members still living in Central America.”
Manger was one of three law enforcement officials who provided testimony regarding the growing threat posed by MS-13 and the resulting need for federal intervention. The gang, which is comprised largely of Salvadoran immigrants, began in Los Angeles in the 1980s and now maintains a significant presence in the New York and Washington D.C. metro areas where they engage in drug dealing, extortion and violence.
Manger also spoke about the need for the federal government to relax surveillance laws so law enforcement can more easily monitor gang members. He explained that gang members have become increasingly tech savvy and as a result are often able to evade police surveillance, according to the Washington Examiner.
“I also urge Congress to act to balance citizens’ rights to privacy with law enforcement’s need to lawfully monitor and intercept electronic communications regarding criminal activity and potential deadly plots” Manger said.”

Obama Admin KNOWINGLY Allowed MS-13 Gang Members Into the US
“Whistleblower: Obama’s DHS knowingly let in at least 16 MS-13 gang members who arrived at the U.S. as illegal immigrant teenagers in 2014, The Washington Times reports.
Via The Washington Times:
The Obama administration knowingly let in at least 16 admitted MS-13 gang members who arrived at the U.S. as illegal immigrant teenagers in 2014, a top senator said Wednesday, citing internal documents that showed the teens were shipped to juvenile homes throughout the country.
Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said a whistleblower turned over Customs and Border Protection documents from 2014 detailing the 16 people who were caught crossing the border.
“CBP apprehended them, knew they were MS-13 gang members, and they processed and disbursed them into our communities,” Mr. Johnson, Wisconsin Republican, said.
The gang members were part of the surge of UAC, or “unaccompanied alien children,” as the government labels them, who overwhelmed the Obama administration in 2014, leaving Homeland Security struggling to staunch the flow from Central America.
Officials at the time said the children should be treated as refugees fleeing horrific conditions back home — though security analysts said the children were prime recruiting territory for gangs already in the U.S.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, The Obama administration was an 8 year crime spree. Obama and his corrupt agencies knowingly put Americans in danger with their disregard for the law. Where is the justice? The equally corrupt media never reports on stories like this because they are too busy obsessing over the Trump-Russia hoax.
