Non-Deportation Madness: Newark Suspects tied to MS-13 Gang

It seems like almost every day now that we get to witness first-hand the dire repercussions of our government's sickening lack of enforcement of existing immigration laws, even when violent crimes are committed. I think Dan Riehl puts it very succinctly:
How much of this disgusting nonsense do we have to read before our lame politicians start doing something about it?
Meanwhile here is more from Michelle Malkin:

In the latest developments, the NYPost reports on the suspects’ illegal alien gang ties:

As Newark cops yesterday continued hunting for three people suspected in a grisly schoolyard massacre there, residents said several of the men were part of a notorious street gang.

It also emerged that one of the fugitives, Rodolfo Godinez, obtained a green card in 2001 and was allowed to stay in the United States despite later robbery and assault arrests, immigration authorities said yesterday.

Godinez pleaded guilty to lesser charges.

His fellow fugitives include his 16-year-old brother and another youth, both of whom attended Mount Vernon School, the scene of the Aug. 4 triple slaying.
Recently, Godinez’s brother and another youth already nabbed in the murders “started bragging on how they were part of this gang, MS-13,” said a classmate of the duo.
Also known as Mara Salvatrucha, the ruthless MS-13 gang operates in the United States and Central America.

As I’ve reported over the last several years, MS-13 has thoroughly penetrated every major metropolitan area of the country. Just doing the gang-banging no one else will do. The Newark Star-Ledger has more on the MS-13 penetration of Newark’s Ivy Hill neighborhood. And in the latest issue of City Journal, John Robb writes on urban terrorism waged by foreign criminal enterprises.

We discussed the same City Journal piece earlier.
