The Central American street gang has taken advantage of the recent wave of hyper-globalization to proliferate their illicit activities and globalize their image as ruthless killers willing to do whatever necessary to ensure survival. Efforts to halt their efforts have been modest at best. To be sure, MS-13 poses a serious transnational threat to the immediate western hemisphere and secondary threat to regions where they have expanded. The United States should explore the possibility of doubling its efforts to aid the countries combatting MS-13 as well as alleviating the conditions which allow MS-13 to thrive.
