Help Save Manassas will have its monthly meeting this Thursday at Manassas City Hall’s Council Chambers, starting at 7:30PM. Joining us (barring some last-minute emergency, which has happened before) we will be briefed by a representative of the Northern Virginia Gang Task Force. Although gang activity is not at all solely related to the unlawful presence of illegal aliens in our community, the membership of several rather troublesome gangs is almost exclusively comprised of illegal aliens. The Virginia State Police estimates that 90% of the membership of MS-13 are illegal aliens, for example, making the fight against illegal immigration and criminal gangs significantly aligned.
This video helps demonstrate this linkage. A day laborer site at Coverstone Drive near Sudley Road is almost co-located with a vacant building that day laborers would hang out at after they’d given up on getting a job that day. Not too surprisingly, the building was trashed and covered with gang graffiti. I guess some proportion of these day laborers do a little moonlighting.
Come get smart about gangs on Thursday.
