President Donald Trump held a speech before the graduates of the National Academy of the FBI, in Kvantako, Virginia. He was mainly talking about the transnational criminal gang of MS-13. Here’s what he said:
“Who the hell wants to take care of them?, It is cheaper to deport members of hyper-enforced gangs than to close them. ” “I mean, somehow, I like it better than jail. Jail we have to take care of them. Who the hell wants to take care of them.” The graduates responded with applause. “You know the jail stuff is wonderful but, we have to pay for it, right?”
He also sent them a message: “To any member of MS-13 listening, I have a message for you: We will find you,” the president said on Friday. “We will arrest you. We will jail you. We will throw you the hell out of the country.”
The president cited the arrest of more than 4,000 gang members this year. The president said that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) arrested 800 MS-13 gang members and associates – an 83 percent increase from the previous year.
Most of the MS-13 gang members are foreign nationals from El Salvador or first-generation immigrants from Central America, the article states. The gang members also take their orders from leaders in El Salvador.
They pose a greater threat to the border guards even from the Mexican cartels, which they work for. That’s why the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) issued a Gang Threat Assesment in August 0f 2015 and classified MS-13 as a Tier 1-level threat. Tier 1 gangs are of particular concern because of their willingness to carry out violence for hire on behalf of Mexican cartels.
Moreover, MS-13 members frequently recruit children who are illegal immigrants. The FBI assistant director said that MS-13 members are “typically much younger than those connected to other street gangs.” They take “cues from the gang instead of relying on a productive family structure. Also, those emigrating from El Salvador to the United States are known to be exposed and desensitized to extreme violence at an early age.”
They are a very notorious gang because of their brutal nature. They kill with pleasure without any reason. They often involve mutilation and dissection and are sometimes recorded.
Оne-third of MS-13 gang members arrested in recent weeks entered the U.S. as Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC). The Office of Refugee Resettlement reports the placement of more than 40,000 UACs around the country during Fiscal Year 2017.
Trump also talked about the migration of the chain and the visa lottery system. He called for the replacement of these immigration programs with a “merit-based immigration system”.
“We want a system that puts the needs of American families, taxpayers, and security first.”
“That is why I have also directed the federal government law enforcement to work closely with our state and local police to destroy criminal cartels like the savages of MS-13.”
