Not an opinion Connie - there is research out there. One can't directly predict the effects on
general crime but one can predict what happens related to gangs. Groups like MS-13 primarily target
their own - just like all of the early ethnic gangs did. The whole Mafia wars of the 20's were about
replacing the old guard that continued to want to continue extortion of fellow Italians with younger
crooks that wanted to broaden out to other rackets. Likewise, MS-13 does the same with Central
American immigrants. They will thrive In an environment where the victims cannot dare go to
authorities - not just out of fear of reprisals, but fear of deportation. This makes the criminals
even more powerful and the victims even more desperate to where they are coerced into illegal acts

But they real problem I have with the commercial is using the imagery of tattooed thugs to paint the
whole of the undocumented population as dangerous criminals. There were 3 murders attributed to
MS-13 in VA last year, yet from the commercial you'd think they were some rampaging gang straight
out of Mad Max. 

The commercial by the Latino group against Gillespie was despicable but not racist (unless your
position is that only white people vote for Republicans). Racist, despicable, and paid for by your
own campaign wins for me. At the very least, Gillespie should have pawned that nonsense off to some
outside attack group.
