Another Reason For Strong Border Enforcement

WHAT IF TERRORISTS TEAM UP WITH U.S. GANGS? Another startling piece from Investor's Business Daily.

The nightmare scenario isn't far-fetched.

At a recent UCLA forum on terrorism, Los Angeles officials said the city's estimated 40,000 gang members are an attractive target for terrorists like al-Qaida. "There are many, many more people who consider themselves jihadists now," said L.A. Police Deputy Chief Mark Leap. "And criminal enterprises are being used to support terrorist activities."

L.A. County Sheriff's Lt. John Sullivan said officials are worried al-Qaida could tap into smuggling networks that move migrants and contraband across Mexico's porous border and into the U.S.

Chief among them is the notorious MS-13 gang, which has infiltrated L.A. and other U.S. cities from Central America.

"MS-13 has a lot of characteristics that could facilitate terrorist activities," Sullivan said, noting that al-Qaida has stated its intent to smuggle black-market nuclear devices into the U.S. and kill at least 4 million Americans.

MS-13 has numbers and a fear factor to keep civilians from peeking in on them. Isn't there a large group of Mexicans in MS-13? There is seperatist movement building from some wingnut jobs in your parts. We might start looking for a serious Zimmerman Telegram in those parts.

The best solutions would be to ban Muslim immigration.

I'm surprised there aren't openly Islamic gangs already, but it wouldn't take much for the terrorists and the gangs to hook up.

Money screams.
