During President Trump’s campaign for the White House, he often spoke of the violent gang known as MS-13, detailing the chaos and carnage they have brought to America, and vowed to destroy them.
The gang is largely comprised of illegal aliens, and has become feared for their extremely brutal methods of dealing with both rival gang members and innocent people alike, and was allowed to operate freely under Obama’s weak leadership.
Thankfully, Trump has taken a much different stance from his predecessor, and the results are proof that his policies are working.
After President Trump allowed law enforcement to do what Obama refused to, arrests of MS-13 gang members and their associates have skyrocketed, and are up at least 83% in just one year.

The president said he wants law enforcement, at a federal and local level, to “destroy criminal cartels, like the savages of MS-13,” and is taking the fight to sanctuary cities which harbor illegal aliens and gang members.
During a recent speech to a graduating class of FBI agents, President Trump stated, “To any member of MS-13 listening, I have a message for you: We will find you. We will arrest you. We will jail you. We will throw you the hell out of the country.”
“Our cities should not be sanctuaries for criminals; they should be sanctuaries for Americans,” said President Trump.
The president also added, “It is our duty to serve the hard-working citizens of our country who raise our families, cherish our values, salute our flag, and make this land our home.”
