The New York Post reported yesterday that President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have kept their promise to crack down on the MS-13 gang. The gang is known for terrorizing immigrant communities.
The article reports:
Of the 45 New York-area gang arrests over the last month by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Homeland Security, 39 were affiliated with MS-13, which has been blamed for a string of recent murders in normally placid Long Island, the feds said.
Those who are not charged with crimes will be processed for deportation, the feds said.
Authorities announced the arrests Wednesday as part of a newly formed task force aimed at MS-13 in New York City and Long Island.
The task force — dubbed “Operation Matador” — was put together in May following a high-profile visit by Sessions to Long Island to address MS-13’s growing presence in the suburbs.
Members of this gang are not people we want walking the streets of America.
The article lists some of the activities of MS-13:
MS-13, known for drug trafficking, kidnapping, human smuggling, murder and sex trafficking, was labeled a “transnational criminal organization” by the Treasury Department in 2012.
President Trump has made the streets of New York City and Long Island safer by simply enforcing the laws already on the books. Thank you, sir.
