The News Beat crew expands on the information presented in the full MS-13: Made in the USA episode, which explores the origins of the murderous gang which is being used as something of a scapegoat for the immigration policies of the Trump administration.
This episode's featured musical guests were revolutionary hip-hop duo Rebel Diaz, with a special appearance from El Savadorian rap artist, Cruz Kontrol.
Rebel Diaz are no stranger to social justice and immigrant issues. These children of political prisoners from Chile have been extremely active and outspoken as artist-activists through the years. Their contribution to the podcast was amazing, but we needed to hear more, and the result was an in-depth, fascinating, must-hear interview.
Join News Beat's producer and host, Manny Faces, editor in chief Chris Twarowski, managing editor Rashed Main and Rebel Diaz in this special BackBeat episode.
