Do you really think 30 additional agents is a sufficient enough of a response to combat the islands recent crime wave?.

To fight the crime here, you'll have to cancel all gun shops and put murderers in jail and not giving them 30 years, but let them there for the rest of their wasted lives.

America should cut Puerto Rico loose. They are a bunch of beggars and thieves. Besides, we don't need them. We have the Mexicans.

There are very few gun stores in Puerto Rico. Besides, legal gun ownership lowers crime. The right to own a gun is a fundamental right granted to all Americans, you should exercise and take advantage of this right.

Agreed 100% on the sentences. Criminals in Puerto Rico get off too easily. They should also eliminate bail for certain offenses. I am also in favor of the death penalty for very serious felonies.

It depends how many are already there.

The FBI San Juan Division is one of the bureau's larger field offices. Obviously not as big as LA or NYC but still quite large for the overall population.

In case you haven't noticed, mexico is the best at kidnapping and hacking. And also, Mexico and the U.S. do NOT have a good relationship. Maybe the people in puerto rico are thieves, but this subject is about the U.S. sending federal reinforcement. And also "Los Z" are a cold-killing organization where their origin is Mexico. And if you compare, Puerto Rico is a better place than Mexico.
