MS-13 Gang Members “Animals?” You Decide?



President Trump recently caught major flak from the Queen of Open Borders Nancy Pelosi who admonished him for referring to brutal MS-13 gang members as “animals” noting, “calling people animals is not a good thing.” Of course, Pelosi, like other critics of the president’s immigration enforcement efforts, deliberately ignores that his comments were explicitly directed at members of a gang whose motto is “rape, control, kill.”

MS-13 takes its motto seriously. Below is an abbreviated list of some of the gruesome acts committed by MS-13 gang bangers in 2017 alone. Did the president’s comment go too far, or do MS-13 gang members deserve such a title? You decide.

  • Venus Romero Iraheta, 17, killed a 15-year old girl because she was suspected of dating someone else. Gang members filmed the torture and stabbing, leading to their arrest.
  • Two MS-13 gang members illegally staying in the U.S., Miguel Alvarez-Flores, 22, and Diego Hernandez-Rivera, 18, were charged with kidnapping, torturing and shooting a teenage girl (ibid).
  • Miguel Alvarez-Flores, 22, (in green), and Diego Hernandez-Rivera were charged with kidnapping, physical and sexual torture and murder of a teenage girl (ibid).
  • 3 MS-13 gang members were charged with stabbing a teenager 16 times, running over him, removing his hands and murdering him (ibid).

MS-13 members murdered victim in Long Island. Four of the victims were murdered in the same night, after being attacked and mutilated by men wielding machetes. (ibid)

    I hate to insult animals, so MS-13 trash is so far down the chain that they aren’t in any way human, animal or any other life form. They are evil, trash , scum, filth, – I’m sure you get the picture of my opinion of them. I don’t even think they should be captured, tried and sentenced, or deported out of the country. Just put them down immediately and put all of humanity out of the misery of having to deal with or hear of the sickening atrocities that they have committed. They are right up there with Hitler and all others of that ilk who have done the terrible things that they did.

    The People’s Republic of Taxachusetts just convicted an MS-13 member of the murder of a 16 year old. The likely motive for the gruesome killing? Gang initiation requirements. Of course, we have no death penalty here so this particular “animal” will probably be released in 20 or 30 years.
