The frontline effects of the open border don’t stay at the border. They’re all around DC

What happens at the border doesn’t stay at the border. Elite East Coast politicians might not care about Arizona ranchers, but 95 percent of illegal immigrants traipsing through the ranchers’ land don’t stay in Arizona. Most of them go to the East Coast. The hardest-hit areas? Right around the nation’s capital.
Fredrick, Maryland, used to be a quiet town that was shielded from the crime problems plaguing the Baltimore-Washington metro area for years. Sitting at the foothills in the mountainous western part of the state, it was a sort of asylum for those who wanted to escape the Baltimore-area problems when I was growing up in central Maryland. Now, it is a hotbed for MS-13 activity, thanks to our open border.
Late last week, the Washington, D.C., medical examiner confirmed the identity of the mutilated body found near the Potomac River inside the nation’s capital. It was that of Eberson Guerra-Sanchez, a 16-year-old student at Tuscarora High School in Frederick. Police suspect this was an MS-13 killing because the area was marked with the gang’s colors, but the search for the killers is still ongoing. This coincides with last week’s gang-style butchering of a 14-year-old girl with a bat and a machete in Prince George’s County, a suburb on the other side of D.C., allegedly by illegal aliens who were recipients of catch-and-release and shielded by a sanctuary government.
What does it say that the suburbs of our nation’s own capital are now infested with the worst transnational gangs fueled by illegal immigration from Central America? Whether it’s Frederick and Montgomery counties to the northwest, PG county to the northeast, or Fairfax County, Virginia, to the south, the flow of Central American teens and families has fundamentally transformed these areas beyond belief.
According to census data, in 2000, just 7.3 percent of the city of Frederick was foreign-born. As of 2017, that number is 18.7 percent for this once rural town, and the numbers are growing wildly with the surge in Central Americans. Nearly a quarter of residents speak a language other than English at home. With this change has come a surge in transnational gangs.
