“You know about MS-13? Get them the hell out of here, right?” – President Trump
President Trump is deporting so many MS-13 gang members back to El Salvador that the country’s officials are actually in a panic! The fear that the return of the vicious gangsters, who often use machetes to kill people, could create an outbreak of even more violence than there already is in the deadly country.
ICE has already sent 398 gang members back to El Salvador this year, and it’s only May. For the total year of 2016 there were 532 members sent back. You can see the steep increase in deportation. Due to the sharp change, Salvadoran officials have held emergency meetings to work on legislation to monitor the criminals who are being sent back by the boatload.
Salvador’s director of immigration director Hector Antonio Rodriguez said, “This clearly affects El Salvador. We already have a climate of violence in the country that we are combating,” he continued, “If gang members return, of course this worries us.”
Oh the irony.
Daily Wire reports:
In tweets and speeches, President Trump has made MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, the leading symbol of the dangers of illegal immigration and the need for more and faster deportations. He has compared the gang’s “meanness” with that of al-Qaeda. He promised last week that the organization will be “gone from our streets very soon, believe me.” Recent high-profile killings, such as that of a 15-year-old Salvadoran girl in Springfield, Va., and a string of slayings on Long Island, have fueled concerns of an MS-13 resurgence in the United States.
Washington Post reports:
Since President Salvador Sánchez Cerén took office in 2014, the Salvadoran government has been on a warlike footing against MS-13 and the 18th Street gang. Authorities have deployed thousands of extra police officers and soldiers to hunt down gang members and limited access to prisons in an effort to stop gang leaders from using visitors to relay orders to members on the outside. Police and soldiers have regularly been accused of human rights violations and extrajudicial killings during this offensive.
Hooray for America! We are cleaning up our neighborhoods and getting rid of the criminals who do not belong here!
