Diane Rehm

July 31, 2009 § Leave a comment

I joined guest host Susan Page on the Diane Rehm show today to talk about the origins of Mara Salvatrucha along with journalist Sam Logan. We heard from the FBI and from a caller worried about the rise of gangs in her small Illinois town. Also some fascinating stories from a caller who worked for the United States in El Salvador in the 1990s protecting deported gang members from attacks by paramilitary forces.

A lot of different opinions about what is causing these gangs to spread, but we did agree that attempts to “arrest away the problem” have failed.
