If you’re looking for some semblance of logic, you will not find it in this CNN article.

But you have to admire their chutzpah for the “sources” they quote:

“People familiar with MS-13“ and a coordinator for an immigration advocacy group.

Via CNN.

….The violent gang known as Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13, originated decades ago among Salvadoran immigrants in Los Angeles and has since built a criminal network that extends across the US, with thriving pockets in the Washington, D.C. suburbs and here on Long Island, just an hour or so east of New York City. It’s estimated to have 10,000 members nationwide.

President Trump has vowed to wipe them out and will visit Long Island Friday to discuss his plans. But the FBI says the gang is growing.

And several people familiar with MS-13, including two gang members themselves, told CNN they think Trump’s crackdown on immigrants is actually making MS-13 stronger because witnesses are more reluctant to come forward for fear of being deported.

“It’s not like before, where … they (the gang) were more hidden,” said Margarita, adding that a decade after fleeing violence in El Salvador she has never felt more afraid. “People can get deported, so they don’t call the police. So they (MS-13) feel more free.”

“I think it’s emboldening them, because this gives them the opportunity to tell immigrants, ‘What are you gonna do? Are you going to report us? They’re deporting other innocent people … (so) they’re going to associate you with us by you coming forward,'” said Walter Barrientos, Long Island coordinator with Make the Road, an immigrant advocacy group….

    You can’t deport all 30 million!

    Doing the job, Americans won’t.
    Let Hitler have Sudetenland, he won’t get stronger then.

    If the gang member isn’t identified after his first crime, he’ll be identified after one of his next ones. Very few can commit crime after crime in the same area and not be identified. Real problem is you get the perp. but they may not identify the leader who ordered it. Okay, if all the members except the leader are deported, he’ll have no one to lead.
