    It’s one of Trump’s favorite talking points: how the gang MS-13 is taking advantage of loose immigration laws and spreading violence and drugs. But is the gang really invading the country, and is it a growing problem? In our latest Vox + ProPublica collaboration, we break down all the talk about MS-13 and separate fact from fiction.

    Notice how they interview their own reporters as authoritative sources and not any of the actual members or FBI or police that track the gangs or even former gang members.

    Hey Vox, why don't you ask some real Salvadorans living in El Salvador what THEY think about MS13? Because this just seems like your own crafted propaganda. NO SALVADORAN would every show their face and speak of MS13, it would be suicide - with a long, torturous death. I used to enjoy some of your content but this is complete GARBAGE. My SALVADORAN family cannot live normal lives because of MS13 and the 18th street gang but here you are making them look like they're not all bad. These "peo...

    there not defending their saying that politicians are using ms 13 as a pawn to push their border wall and immigration reform. trump has announced the boogyman, America now has a common enemy that they can stand behind, the politicians can use this to push their agendas through by controlling the populations fear

    Eh, this video wasn't about the MS 13 in Central America. It is obvious they are far bigger problem there.
