Quick Takes: News You May Have Missed

Dave Gibson, a columnist for Examiner.com, asked, “Where were the press releases? Why isn’t the Obama campaign talking about this rather astounding feat every day?”

The NDIC’s reports have been entirely removed from the Justice Department’s website. Attempt to access the report brings users to a page that reads, “This website is no longer maintained and may contain dated information.”

In October 2011, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement reported that in 2009 and 2010 it arrested 5,270 illegal alien gang members across all 50 states. The arrests could have accounted for some of the reductions.

However, a 2011 FBI report draws a far dimmer picture of the nature of criminal gangs operating domestically. States the report: “There are an estimated 1.4 million active street, prison and outlaw motorcycle gang members in more than 33,000 gangs operating in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.”

The report notes those numbers reflect an increase from 2009 figures due “primarily to more comprehensive reporting from law enforcement and enhanced gang recruiting efforts.”

The FBI report further warns that gang members are acquiring high-powered, military-style weapons and equipment, which, the report says, poses “a significant threat because of the potential to engage in lethal encounters with law enforcement and citizens alike.”

A 2008 report by the Center for Immigration Studies found that gang investigators in Virginia estimate that 90 percent of the members of MS-13, the most notorious immigrant gang, are illegal immigrants.

Golden presents a compelling saga of poor but determined immigrants who fled pogroms and harsh conditions in their homelands for a better life in a land of opportunity.

It seems to us that while the Jewish entitlement to the land of Israel transcends the Holocaust, the Jewish experience during that tragic time is the most solid of foundations for these “national rights.”
