MS13 originated in Los Angeles as a Street gang to protect Salvadoran immigrants in the city. It expanded into organized crime in different Metro areas in the US.

In '04 there was a crackdown and members were deported back to El Salvador.

@KristinMak2 @larryelder El Salvador had been ravaged by Civil War in the 70s/80s, a victim of the US funding the strong men leaders and cracking down on poor farmers who (supposedly) espoused communism.

So when hardened US sociopaths began landing en masse, you can imagine what happened.

@KristinMak2 @larryelder They spent the next few decades recruiting. In gang speak, that means they were "jumping in" kids (boys and teens) by beating them senseless. If the kids survived and joined, they lived. If they didn't join, they were hunted and killed. If they didn't survive 🤷.
