Speaking in Long Island, New York Friday afternoon President Donald Trump bolstered efforts by the Department of Justice to go after criminal illegal aliens. Specifically he focused on El Salvadorian street gang MS-13, which has been wreaking havoc on the region and in communities across America.
“The men and women of ICE are turning the tide in the battle against MS-13,” Trump said. “We will find you. We will arrest you. We will jail you, and we will deport you.”
“ICE officers recently conducted the largest crackdown on criminal gangs in the history of our country,” he continued. “We’re just getting started. We will restore law and order.”
In Long Island a number of serious and violent crimes have been committed by MS-13 members, including the recent murder of a 19-year-old man with a hatchet.
