26. Actually, MS-13...
...did not originate in Central America, but rather in the Pico Union neighborhood of Los Angeles in the 1980s. The U.S. has been deporting these criminals back to their home countries where they start up new MS-13 cells and are spreading like wildfire. MS-13 is a U.S. export, not the other way around.

There is a fascinating documentary about them on YouTube and it's worth the watch if you have the time (about an hour).
