While ISIS is the incarnation of evil in the world, other threats closer to home pose an imminent danger to American citizens.
Last night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson took the time to warn Americans of a foreign threat far more dangerous to Americans. He warn his audience that “MS-13, a mostly immigrant street gang, is a far greater threat to your life than ISIS is.”
Of course, Tucker is not trying to undermine the atrocities committed by ISIS. It’s just that the terrorist group is mostly confined to the Middle East, while MS-13 members walk our streets daily.
MS-13 is an inherently foreign threat. The gang started south of the border and has over 30,000 members living abroad, with an additional 6,000 members known to police operating within our borders.
The gang mostly consists of illegal aliens. They are constantly smuggling both drugs and people over the border. While committing these crimes, they have murdered numerous innocent Americans.
MS-13 is one of the major gangs that operate within U.S. borders, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, on behalf of President Trump, is ramping up efforts to combat the foreign gang.
Jeff Sessions has declared the Southwestern portion of the United States border “ground zero” in the fight against gangs and smugglers who rape and murder their way through our country.
The attorney general announced a crackdown against the gangs that abuse our border. He even called out MS-13 by name. “Transnational gangs like MS-13 and international cartels flood our country with drugs and leave death and violence in their wake,” Sessions told reporters earlier this week.
The mainstream media prefers to report on the evils of ISIS because the terrorists are clearly evil, but they are not abusing our border. The common sense response to gangs like MS-13 is to secure the border to stop new members from entering the country, and to cut off smuggling, a major source of the gang’s income
But the mainstream media is more concerned with pushing the narrative that illegal aliens are all poor sods escaping prosecution.
If Americans knew the truth about who was really crossing the border, there would be even more support to build the wall.
