    It’s one of Trump’s favorite talking points: how the gang MS-13 is taking advantage of loose immigration laws and spreading violence and drugs. But is the gang really invading the country, and is it a growing problem? In our latest Vox + ProPublica collaboration, we break down all the talk about MS-13 and separate fact from fiction.

    Idk what to say really ...when living in San Antonio I met 2 Kings and became close with them we drank ...often 2 of us might not have money the 3rd would kick in ...nothing bad ever came about I met Gf's of Kings if something did come around I was defended by them ...I was never concerned about my safety ever .....I felt safe around them more so than the general public....I think of them once in awhile hoping the best for them...I suppose like with anyone...you should know and trust yourself...

    There are probably many who just call them selves ms 13 to have something to identify with. But just because there’s innocents among them it doesn’t exonerate actual organized criminals. Both sides have valid points. Shouldn’t be politicalized by left or right. Just go after the criminals like any other gang.

    This is very contradictory.

    Vox: “In the 1980’s a US backed war against the Salvadoran rebels raged in El Salvador. Nearly a million Salvadorans escaped the violence and fled to the US as undocumented immigrants”

    Also Vox: “This is 100% an American born gang”

    They are allowed to be a problem that’s why. If the government wanted to slay them they would.

    I like a lot of your video's Vox, but to try and defend MS-13 gang members to bash Trump? Please try to keep it objective.
