Tucker Carlson: MS-13 Street Gang ‘Is a Far Greater Threat to Your Life Than ISIS’


Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson argued that MS-13, an organization he described as a “mostly immigrant street gang” a bigger threat to public safety than ISIS. Carlson offered examples of MS-13 violence and pointed out that while there are likely a “few hundred” active ISIS members in the United States, there were 6,000 members of MS-13 domestically and 30,000 abroad. Transcript as follows: It’s fair to say, ISIS is the new global gold standard for offal. Combined the Orlando, San Bernardino and Chattanooga terror attacks, and the groups is responsible for at least 68 deaths here in the U.S. over just the past three years and that is bad. On the other hand, it’s nothing compared to MS-13. That organization, a mostly immigrant street gang is a far greater threat to your life than ISIS is. It’s the numbers. It’s not just the body’s pile up in smaller numbers and the coverage isn’t a splashy when they’re covered at all because often they are not. Besides the four killings you just heard about in New York today, there’s Raymond Wood. He’s the Lynchburg teenager apparently murdered and left by the side of the road
