President Trump has declared war on MS-13 and has threatened to remove immigrant MS-13 members. But the war may be hard to win in light of the fear within immigrant communities that cooperating with local police mayt result in their deportation.
CNN reports on the violence of this gang as well as the challenges posed by combating MS-13 violence. According to the report, several people familiar with MS-13, including two gang members themselves, told CNN they think Trump's crackdown on immigrants is actually making MS-13 stronger because witnesses are more reluctant to come forward for fear of being deported.
