Trump Praises Law Enforcement in Fighting MS-13 Gang

The White House confirmed the president's plans on Tuesday but did not elaborate.

"Investing in our young people and their communities is our way forward for sustaining healthy and safe neighborhoods for generations to come", they added. "We can not tolerate as a society the spilling of innocent, young, wonderful, vibrant people".

Since January of 2016, 17 murders in Suffolk County have been attributed to MS-13, which drew the ire of Mr. Trump's beleaguered Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, who visited Central Islip, the home of Long Island's federal courthouse, in April to declare war on the gang.

In his first visit to Long Island since taking office, Trump is scheduled to address hundreds of Long Island law enforcement personnel at Suffolk County Community College's Brentwood campus.

A Congressional Research Service analysis of MS-13 found that its ranks were continuously strengthened by deportees from the USA returning home, even as members also migrated to the US. Trump spoke on stage in front of dozens of uniformed officers and a banner that read, "Protecting American lives".

President Trump is expected to remind Congress on Friday of his promised crackdown on undocumented immigrants in the United States by highlighting the brutal violence of the transnational gang MS-13 as the face of illegal immigration in America.

As News 12 has previously reported, Mickens and her friend Kayla Cuevas were brutally killed with machetes allegedly at the hands of the MS-13 street gang.

Since the beginning of 2017, the Department of Homeland Security's investigative unit has arrested 3,311 gang members nationwide during targeted operations, said Tom Homan, acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. This is in addition to his repeated campaign pledge to build a border wall, which Trump says will prevent migrants from illegally entering the country.

"We say, loud and clear, that after months of vilifying our communities, he is not welcome here", said Walter Barrientos of Make The Road New York, an immigrant advocacy group, on Thursday.

In Trump's first 100 days in office, ICE arrested 41,318 immigrants, up 37.6 percent over the same period a year ago. Many gang members, however, are US citizens. But the biggest increase by far is among immigrants with no criminal records.
