MS-13 Dumping Dead Bodies Near Elementary School Has NY Residents Rethinking Immigration
AFTER IMPORTING one fifth the entire population of the murder capital of the world, El Salvador, people are showing up dead left and right here in America, go figure.
From the New York Times, ‘They Keep Finding Bodies’: Gang Violence in Long Island Town Fuels Immigration Debate:
On Sept. 13, Nisa Mickens, 15, and her best friend, Kayla Cuevas, 16, were murdered, their battered bodies found near an elementary school here. A week later and just two miles away, the skeletal remains of two more teenagers — identified as Oscar Acosta, 19, and Miguel Garcia-Moran, 15 — were found in the woods near a psychiatric hospital. Oscar had been missing since May, Miguel since February. Their deaths have been ruled homicides.
Brentwood, a hardscrabble town of nearly 60,000 on Long Island, 40 miles east of Manhattan, has reached another crisis point. For nearly two decades, MS-13, a gang with roots in Los Angeles and El Salvador, has been terrorizing the town, the authorities say, especially its young people. Since 2009, its members have been accused of at least 14 murders, court and police records show.
This is happening in “sanctuary cities” everywhere. These domestic terrorists have lately taken to leaving nearly beheaded youth’s bodies on playgrounds.
The NY Times continues:
School officials are scrambling. Police officers are searching. Students are frightened. Parents are anguished.
“It’s so hard, I’m hurting,” Evelyn Rodriguez, Kayla’s mother, said last week. “I wish I could hold my daughter again.”
In her first interview since Kayla’s funeral, Ms. Rodriguez spoke measuredly about how her daughter had been bullied by gang members inside and outside her high school.
“To me, it’s worse than it was before; it’s everywhere,” said Ms. Rodriguez, a 1987 graduate of Brentwood Ross High School, where her daughter was a student. “This is ridiculous,” she added. “We need some type of assistance to help our police officers here and see if they can come together to figure out a plan to make things better for the kids now.”
The path to such a plan, however, runs through a fractured Suffolk County. Its former police chief is headed to jail, its district attorney is under federal investigation and a Justice Department settlement mandated changes in the Police Department in 2013 after findings of bias against Latino residents.
Hard to believe the police would want to profile these Latinos as they’re going around killing everyone.
Those officials must have been some really bad dudes.
The NY Times goes on to detail how MS-13 gang members, also known as El Salvadorians, are going around murdering people all over the place. They then explain how it’s causing people to rethink open borders:
The recent murders have exacerbated disputes in the town over immigration policy, which Donald J. Trump, the Republican candidate for president, fueled during last week’s debate by saying that the gangs roaming the streets were made up of illegal immigrants.
“There’s been a huge influx, to be honest with you,” said Ray Mayo, the president of the Brentwood Association of Concerned Citizens, who added that he was upset over undocumented immigrants crowding rental properties. “It seems like a whole new set of gang members who have stirred the pot up.”
Nonsense, the government has assured us immigration numbers are down and Obama and Clinton both say the U.S. is safer than ever!
Two law enforcement authorities, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the continuing murder investigation, said that over the last several years the gang has sought to enlist recent immigrants from Central America because they are often more vulnerable to recruitment.
But some recently settled families are just as worried about their own children’s safety.
“I am afraid, as a Salvadoran,” said Ana, 38, a mother of two girls, one in high school. She fled El Salvador in 2006 and has since become a member of Make the Road New York, an immigrant activist group. She did not want to give her full name for fear of retribution.
“It makes me feel bad that people think this of all Salvadorans,” she said. “Violence was the reason I left — when they killed my brother. And now we are experiencing the same violence.”
Wow, what a coincidence!
Who’d have thought if you took everyone from El Salvador and brought them to America the same problems would come with them?
Meanwhile, “Ana,” you fled El Salvador because Salvadorians are going around murdering each other, but now you’re working to bring them all here to America?
Thanks so much for your help, lady. …
Distrust of the Suffolk County police among Latinos is palpable and long documented. Residents said they were dismayed by a dearth of Spanish-speaking officers, and undocumented immigrants in particular often worry that if they report information, the authorities will turn them over to immigration officials.
Wait, you’re telling me criminals don’t like law enforcement?
If only there was a country they could go to where the police all spoke Spanish and were just like them…
