Ted Poe on C-Span just stated there is a possible link between the MS-13 Gang and Al qeada. The MS-13 gang should be reguarded as a domestic terrorist threat. He said the gang is suspected of aiding foreign terrorists across the American/Mexican border along with countless south american civilians. MS-13 is thought to be the most dangerous and violent gang in the world. Members were recently arrested for SS fraud, using the same ss# for several members, to aquire employment in the US to cover up their extracurricular activities. The gang has already infiltrated our border and continues its nortorious violent network here in the states.

"There has been some intelligence that al-Qaeda has talked with the Maras to help smuggle someone in to the U.S.," Naland added. "It's kind of the logical open door that could be used and the Maras are just ruthless enough to do it."
This site has a news5 article on the subject from Feb. also on the topic

400 members have been arrested nationwide for various criminal activities:

Serious homeland threat:

The MS-13 gang, with 20,000 members nationwide, has risen in recent months to such prominence that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the investigative arm of the Department of Homeland Security, has begun a nationwide crackdown on gang members in this country -- as part of a sweeping law-enforcement initiative known as Operation Community Shield.

This sort of intelligence displays anything but.

If you listen to the State Dept., ALF and ELF are also in league with Al-Qaeda.

It just doesn't make sense.

MS 13 is just another large gang that is spreading. If you consider them a terrorist threat then all gangs should be considered a terrorist threat. True they are ruthless but so are most CRIP gangs and Blood gangs. I remember a while ago the Asian Crips and Bloods were supposed to be the most ruthless gangs in the U.S.

The point is if you consider MS 13 terrorist then all gangs should be considered terrorist.

Let's think here for a second folks. What seperates M-13 from other gangs? As stated, they are believed to have direct contact with Al-Queda (bringing weapons and terrorist across the border). The logic of 'well all gangs should be considered terrorist' is moot and lame.

The government designated a multilevel task force for this particular gang--The first of its kind.
Their ability to traffic people and weapons effortlessly across the border in itself makes them a homeland security threat. These people make money trafficing, it is their dirty buisiness.--Why wouldnt Al Qeada want to utilize this tool for terror?
