Three suspected MS-13 gang members were arrested in Vienna, Va., Wednesday night after police tracked their activity among Los Angeles, Massachusetts and Virginia for five months. One of the men is wanted for an MS-13-related slaying in Massachusetts. All three are illegal immigrants from El Salvador. Alexander Dominguez, 24, is accused of shooting Miguel Mendez, 37, outside a house in New Bedford, Mass., in October 2004. He is wanted on a Massachusetts warrant and has been traveling with Jorge Alberto Platero Castillo and Jose Zosimo Platero Mercado, two suspected MS-13 members from Los Angeles. They were arrested by U.S. marshals at about 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Vienna apartment where they were staying.

I'm guessing that these two "Plateros" are somehow related,
but I'll be darned if I can figure out exactly how.
Jorge Bush's "Good Hearted People" just doing the drive-bys that Americans won't do.
God,if only we could lock 'em all up and throw away the key,sans lawyer and trial.
"I've had question, upon question, upon question if this is an international organization being run out of El Salvador, and the answer is 'no,' " said Rich Marianos, a spokesman for the ATF. "In the 19 years of my gang experience, I've found that it is a common practice for members who are wanted in their own cities to assimilate into a city where they have members of their own gang. That's a better way to equate the travel than saying they were hooking up."
This is a poor excuse to trivialize what going on! What difference does it make as to the mechanism of assimilation or whether the correct PC name is used to describe; gangs, organized crime or terrorists, the outcome of this activity is a threat to the security of our nation.
Why is it that we continually to hear about the mid-east insurgents and the need to wage a war on terrorism on the other side of the globe by the most powerful army of the history of the earth., while that the same time we dismiss these same activities on our own soil as a law enforcement issue to be policed by keystone cops?
Hmm...I wonder, how long U.S. Marshals have been tracking these for-hire-a$$ina$$in$.
OK i'm confused, I don't know how that posting ended up here. Oh well, everybody knows what I look like now.
Did you hear Jorge's speech earlier at the dedication of Air Force One at the Reagan Library. He ticked me off talking about standing strong against terrorists yet keeps the border wide open.
another reason for better border control....if it only saved one life....
Doing the killing that American gangs are too lazy to do.
Protect our borders and coastlines from all foreign invaders!
Support our Minutemen Patriots!

Having grown up in southern California, I can tell you, with some surety, that they're cousins. At least all of them in my home town were.
I got an email a couple of weeks ago. It tells of the gratuitous killings of our nations police officers on October 31. Has anyone seen this email?
