Rep. Wolf has been effective in promoting federal funding of an anti-gang task force to coordinate a regional response to the threat of these criminal enterprises. His office has recently posted a video about the success of this program.
Not to totally discount the improvements achieved through focus and coordination of existing resources, I disagree with the approach of attempting to improve administration while evading the causes rooted in nonobjective law. I commented:
There are three areas where a legislator could be more effective at addressing this problem by correcting existing defective statutes. First, drug prohibition needs to be ended to stop the financing of criminal organizations and the spread of violence. Second, our broken immigration system needs to be fixed with an open system, excluding only the criminal and diseased. Third, Congress needs to reverse broad delegation of regulatory discretion which has killed our economy.
