Immigration Brief: MS-13 Expands Its Reach into Baltimore

By Andrew R. Arthur and Bryan Griffith on October 29, 2020

In a new video from the Center for Immigration Studies, Andrew Arthur, the Center’s resident fellow in law and policy, describes recent MS-13 killings in Maryland and the role of sanctuary policies in allowing gang members who are unlawfully in the country to be released to commit further crimes.

“Until local officals wake-up to the fact that they have a MS-13 problem and take steps with the public to go after the gang, killings like this will continue,” predicts Arthur.

The MS-13 gang problem in Maryland is significant enough that the FBI has set-up a tip line for individuals to report suspected activity: 1-866-STP-MS13 (787-6713).
