The organized criminal street gang MS-13, comprised primarily of illegal immigrants from Central America, is known for its chilling brutality – human smuggling, kidnappings, arms trafficking, rapes, stabbings, murders and even gruesome decapitations.
For example, the Washington Post offered a glimpse of MS-13’s horrific crimes in a November 2017 report:
As many as 10 members of the MS-13 street gang lured a man into a park in Wheaton, Md., spoke with one another over walkie-talkies as he arrived, stabbed him more than 100 times, decapitated him and then cut out his heart, according to police documents made public Wednesday in Montgomery County District Court.
In July, Fox News shared this example:
“MS-13 suspected that some of the men were from a rival gang, and directed the female associates to lure them to a community park … where a group of MS-13 members would be waiting to attack and kill them,” federal prosecutors wrote in the letter …
“One of the targeted victims ran immediately and escaped, but the group of MS-13 members and associates attacked and killed Llivicura, Lopez, Tigre and Villalobos, using machetes, knives and wooden clubs,” prosecutors wrote. “[The four victims] were surrounded by more than a dozen MS-13 members, including the defendants, and engulfed in a horrific frenzy of violence as they were brutally bludgeoned, sliced and stabbed to death.”
Authorities across the U.S. have been working to deport members of the criminal gangs for many years. So it was little surprise on Wednesday when Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mim, of California, complained to President Trump about restrictions placed on federal immigration databases and the process of identifying and rounding up MS-13 gang members.
Mims told Trump: “There could be an MS-13 gang member that I know about. If they don’t meet a certain threshold, I cannot tell ICE about them.”
The president responded to Mims’ concerns, telling her: “You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals. And we’re taking them out of the country at a level and a rate that’s never happened before. And because of the weak laws, they come in fast, we get them, we release them, we get them again, we bring them out. It’s crazy.”
