The Real El Salvador

El Salvador, by the way, is “one of the most dangerous places on the planet.” A full one third of Salvadorans don’t live in the country. They live in the US. The economy of El Salvador is heavily dependent on the money immigrants send back from the US. 

MS-13, a terrifying criminal gang of Salvadoran immigrants, originated in LA but has spread all over the US. There is now a significant branch of MS-13 even as far as in Toronto, Canada. Among many other things, MS-13 is collaborating with Mexican drug cartels that are feeding the opioid epidemic in the US. They are also very active in the field of human trafficking, weapons sales, and child prostitution.

Of course, as bad as things are in El Salvador, they are a lot worse in Haiti.
