The violent gang known as MS-13 has brought its terror and recruiting tactics to a middle school in Maryland, The Washington Post reported.
Members of Mara Salvatrucha, the notorious El Salvadorian street gang also known as MS-13, have infiltrated an overwhelmingly Hispanic school, William Wirt Middle School in Riverdale, Md., to sell drugs, draw pro-MS-13 graffiti, and recruit immigrants from Central America who have fled their respective countries because of the brutal gang. School teachers estimate about a dozen members are there now, The Post reported. . .
“We now have two to three fights per day,” said a school instructor who, like all of the sources The Post cited, requested anonymity for fear of losing their jobs and potential threats against their lives. “At this point, it’s completely out of control.”
School officials deny there is a gang problem in the school. “The principal is aware of concerns about gangs in the community, but has not experienced any problems in school,” school spokesperson John White said. . .
MS-13’s motto is “rape, control, kill” and the group is referred to as “animals” by President Donald Trump. Its recruitment of teenagers in middle school appears to be a part of a larger, more disturbing trend, as The Daily Caller reported in 2015.
