U.S., New York officials

declare war on deadly

MS-13 street gang

Last September Suffolk County police, in New York, found Nisa Mickens murdered on the eve of her 16th birthday. The next day, the body of her best friend, Kayla Cuevas, was found nearby. Like Mickens, she had been beaten and slashed to death with a machete.

Investigators say the girls died at the hands of MS – 13, a gang blamed for killing 17 people in the county since the start of 2016.

MS 13 is a particularly dangerous group that engages in violence for sport according to the police Commissioner.

MS 13 originated in Los Angeles in the 1980s and law enforcement have arrested more than 7,000 members in the past decade. They have moved around the world and he got a strong foothold in South America recruiting kids at the age of 10.  And now police report MS 13 is making another big push, by recruiting vulnerable children who cross the border unaccompanied and looking for a sense of family.

The Justice Department says there are now more than 10,000 MS-13 members and at least 40 states.

The Suffolk County gang unit is arrested more than 150 MS – 13 members in the past year, including those accused in the above listed homicides.

In South America, MS-13 are violent street terrorists whose crimes range from theft, to rape, and homicide.

They are extremely violent and have an absolute resolve to kill for the slightest reasons.

This is one of the biggest reasons we need to close our southern borders, as it is not to keep the Mexican labor force out but to keep these types of violent people out.

Sometimes you build a wall because you want to protect the people you love inside that wall and not for any other reason. The best example that I can give of that is the Vatican that has large walls surrounding it, to protect the people inside not because they are prejudiced about the people on the outside.
