  • The Trump administration is taking on the violent MS-13 gang. This is what's in the works

Thomas Homan, the acting director of ICE who traveled here with Trump aboard Air Force One, said his agency has arrested 3,311 gang members this year, including 100 in NY, a majority of whom were affiliated with MS-13.

Congressman Peter King, who represents Brentwood and was traveling with the president from Washington, said Trump's appearance would send a signal to communities that have been shaken by the violent killings.

For the fight, the president wants thousands of more U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, more immigration judges, laws for quicker deportations and penalties for sanctuary cities, said the official.

Mr. Zeldin, a steadfast supporter of the president, called for an "all hands on deck mission from all levels of government" addressing gang violence, "from the enforcement of our immigration laws, worldwide efforts to combat various related criminal activity, to local efforts to educate and rehabilitate as necessary and appropriate".

She'll also call on him to bring back funding for community programs to support kids and for public schools.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions visited El Salvador this week to meet with officials to address issues surrounding the violent street gang.

An administration official pointed to migration from Central American as the "principle factor" for MS-13's growth into the U.S., though the administration has been continuously unable to give reporters any hard numbers of how many suspected MS-13 members are immigrants or were gang members when they migrated to the US.

For Cyborg, Saturday's contest represents her first opportunity to compete in her natural weight class on the UFC stage. Jones has said that he would love to take on Lesnar , who is back in the WWE after a short comeback stint in the UFC .

The gang has flourished amid the massive influx of illegal immigrants from Central America and lax interior enforcement of immigration laws during the Obama administration.

"We've gotten a lot of them out of here", Trump said.

Trump has compared MS-13's "meanness" to that of al-Qaida and has promised he would rid the country of it.

The venue is close to where MS-13 has committed a string of gruesome murders, including April's massacre of four young men. Two of the victims, Justin Llivicura, of East Patchogue and Jorge Tigre of Bellport, were residents of the First Congressional District, while the other two victims, Michael Lopez Banegas and Jefferson Villalobos, of Brentwood and Pompano Beach, Fla., respectively, had come to the USA from Honduras to be with their parents and escape gang violence in their home countries.

Mara Salvatrucha, known as MS-13, actually began in the United States, in Los Angeles in the 1980s amid a flood of Salvadorans fleeing a civil war to the US. "We got to tell people it's not okay to violate laws in this country".

Trump said he was focused on the gang because of its gruesome tactics, saying members don't like to shoot their victims because it kills them too quickly.
