Thanks to open-borders fanatics and the cowardly Republicans in Congress that have done nothing to fight them, America has a serious gang problem.
While it’s mostly isolated to the Southwest and especially California, it’s a big problem nonetheless.
Even though this problem was brought on by leftists and allowed to fester, the Trump administration is intent on doing something about it.
And with Trump’s drastic shift of our immigration priorities, the chance to eradicate these gangs has FINALLY arrived.
As reported at the Daily Caller, Immigration and Customs Enforcement acting director Thomas Homan said on Tuesday that his “gang is bigger” than MS-13, and that he will carry out President Donald Trump’s goal of dismantling the violent criminal organization.
The Trump administration has placed a target on the transnational gang, and at a recent cabinet meeting, the president said that MS-13 is being “depleted” and “will be gone pretty soon.”
MS-13 hails from El Salvador, where its leadership hides and recruits from. Their favorite target is the immigrant community, where they’re able to find desperate folks upon which to prey.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions has previously estimated the number of members at 30,000 in El Salvador and 10,000 spread across 40 US states.
But since Trump took office, ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) has been conducting raids on various gang, which has resulted in the arrest of 3,111 gang members, with 357 of those being members of MS-13.
ICE has also deported nearly 300 gang members this fiscal year alone.
Homan said that while HSI “targets many gangs,” they are concentrating on MS-13 as “they seem to be the most violent right now and they think they can act with impunity.”
“We’re taking this seriously.
My gang is bigger than theirs and we are going to take them out,” Homan said.
“That’s the goal. The president supports that. We’re going to follow through on the president’s promise and we are going to take out MS-13 as much as we can.”
This attitude was what was woefully missing from our immigration agencies the last 8 years.

Under Obama, the violence was overlooked because doing something about it meant enforcing immigration laws the previous administration wanted to ignore.
Thanks to the open border policies and nonexistence of enforcement, gangs were allowed to flourish.
But now there’s a new sheriff in town, and thank heaven for that.
This insanity is longer tolerated, so barbaric gangs like MS-13 will finally be eradicated and some measure of peace will be restored to our cities.
