Trump has made cracking down on MS-13 a top priority of his administration.
President Trump on Friday came to Long Island to rail about street gangs, singling out the ultra-violent MS-13.
Trump has vowed to crack down on the gang and deport people involved in the gang regardless of whether they are convicted of crimes. Although Trump's visit to the island was not met with complete support, law enforcement officials say they're looking forward to it and are "extending a warm welcome" to the president.
"When you see these towns and when you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in, rough", Trump said. "I said, 'You can take the hand away, OK?'"
"You guys, you put somebody in the vehicle you're protecting their head, you know.the way you put your hand, like, don't hit their head and they've just killed somebody.I said you can take the hand away, OK?" And they enjoy watching that much more. It is here among the immigrant community, the gang with global ties stretching as far as El Salvador, has chosen to exercise its particular brand of barbarity. But the president did not mention Sessions in his remarks.
The MS-13 gang first took root in the United States in Los Angeles in the 1980s in neighborhoods populated with immigrants from El Salvador who had fled its civil war.
Trump may support Russian Federation sanctions legislation
The draft USA sanctions law would target Russian energy, financial, railways, shipping, and metals and mining sectors. The draft US sanctions law would target Russian energy, financial, railways, shipping, and metals and mining sectors.
"It speaks volumes that the attorney general himself has traveled to the nerve center of MS-13 and is standing in solidarity with our partners in Central America".
Police officials say that since January 1, 2016, there have been 17 murders by MS-13 members in Suffolk County, many of which have been in just two neighboring suburbs, Brentwood and Central Islip.
"Trump's visit to a county racked by violence attributed to the gang - 17 murders over 18 months, according to local police - aimed to give "power and poignancy" to his message that lawmakers must do more to combat illegal immigration" a White House aide told reporters in a briefing.
Trump talks regularly about cracking down on MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha.
Gang members are known for their ornate tattoos, which are meant to identify members for life, and the "devil's horn" hand symbol, which was created in the 1980s when numerous members would attend rock concerts in Los Angeles.
