From the start of President Trump's campaign, he was set on getting MS-13 out of this country. Well, he is officially making good on his promise. As President Trump sends hundreds of gang members back to El Salvador, it has put the country's officials in a major panic. El Salvador is a country that is loaded with violence. Now it is only going to get worse with the return of vicious gangsters, who are known for using machetes to kill people.
Just this year alone, ICE has already sent 398 of these violent gang members back to El Salvador. In 2016, there were 532 members sent back in the whole year, so it's obvious to see that there is a big-time increase. These actions are forcing Salvadoran officials to work toward legislation for monitoring these criminals who are being sent back to their country.
Hector Antonio Rodriguez is Salvador's director of immigration. He said, “This clearly affects El Salvador. We already have a climate of violence in the country that we are combating. If gang members return, of course this worries us.”
Per Daily Wire:
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.
Per Washington Post:
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.
Trump Sends Hundreds of Gang Members Back to El Salvador
It is great to have a president who is getting rid of criminals who do not belong in the United States of America. It's time to clean up the neighborhoods and get this country back on track.
