    Latino street gangs led by MS-13 have tried to lure Long Island's newest child immigrants into their ranks, police said, causing concern among local investigators as well as immigrant advocacy groups. The violent, drug-dealing gangs have been vying for new members among the more than 3,000 children younger than 18 who resettled in Nassau and Suffolk counties between September 2013 and September 2014, authorities said. Many of those kids were fleeing violence carried out by MS-13 and other gangs in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala."They were targeted by the Latino gangs that were already established here," Det. Sgt. Mike Marino,...

    Two illegal aliens in Walker County, Texas, have pleaded guilty to murdering and dismembering a 16-year-old high school student with a baseball bat and a machete in a national park nearly two years ago. According to investigators, the crime was a revenge killing ordered by the infamously violent Latin American gang Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13. Cristian Zamora, 22, and Ricardo Leonel Campos Lara, 19, both from El Salvador, pleaded guilty on April 17 to aiding and abetting each other and others with the murder of 16-year-old Josael Guevara on Sept. 23, 2013, the Houston Chronicle reported.

The potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate says in an interview with Fusion’s Jorge Ramos that Congress should provide more money to help immigration officials determine whether children should be considered migrants or refugees. Some of the children should be sent back, Clinton says, but the U.S. needs a “sensible, orderly process” to care for the tens of thousands of children crossing the border,...

    Visiting El Salvador over the past year, it was hard not to think the country's number-one job is standing around outside with a gun. In the region from which child migrants are fleeing to the US, personal security is largely a question of what you can afford to pay. El Salvador has, by one estimate, 25,000 private guards in a country with 20,000 police officers. In Honduras, which boasts the highest murder rate in the world and has seen the largest exodus of young people to the American border this year, guards outnumber cops five to one. Wealthy Salvadorans can...

The Red Cross has set up phone banks inside the processing center so unaccompanied minors can make phone calls to family members inside the United States and back home in Central America. According to sources, those phones are also being used by MS-13 members to communicate with gang members already in the United States and operating in cities like Atlanta, New York and Chicago.

Experts say an expected win by the current ruling party, the FMLN, will turn El Salvador into a haven for gangs and narco-traffickers with dire consequences for the United States. Stunning recent evidence and leaked government documents suggest the country’s current President and ruling party for years have been secretly backed by the MS-13 gang, which is considered by many as America’s most brutal enterprise because of its reputation for using machetes to hack people to death....
