    MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, has between 6,000 and 10,000 members in 46 states, according to FBI statistics. The gang, which takes its name from the Salvadoran peasants who fought in the country’s 1980-1992 civil war, emerged in impoverished Los Angeles neighborhoods among refugees fleeing the conflict. At the time, their main purpose was to protect a nascent Salvadoran community against more established African-American and Mexican gangs, law-enforcement experts say. Since the late 1980s, the gang has spread to Central American communities across the US. Its members are involved in drugs and sex trafficking. Some are affiliated with Mexican drug cartels....

    SAN SALVADOR — The Trump administration’s push to deport more Central American gang members has alarmed officials here who fear the returning gangsters could exacerbate violence in one of the deadliest countries in the hemisphere. This year, the U.S. government has deported 398 gang members to this country, compared with 534 in all of 2016, according to Salvadoran government statistics. This sharp increase in the rate of gang deportations — and the prospect of more gang roundups in the United States — have prompted Salvadoran authorities to hold emergency meetings and propose new legislation to monitor suspected criminals who are...

    Schools have become the crucible for intimidation and recruitment into the Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13, gang on Long Island and around the country. One Long Island mother, who wanted to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal from MS-13, said she and several other parents have taken their teenagers out of the local high school because they’ve become targets of the gang. Some children are being homeschooled and, in a few extreme cases, sent to stay with relatives out of the state. “I am scared to death,” the mother said. “It’s a crapshoot.

    By visiting Long Island last week, Attorney General Jeff Sessions brought national attention to a community besieged by gang violence. “I have a message for the gangs that target young people: We are targeting you. We are coming after you,” Sessions said at the federal courthouse in Central Islip, less than three miles from the park where four young men were found murdered two weeks earlier. The brutal manner in which the four youths, aged between 16 and 20, were killed “is consistent with the modus operandi of MS-13,” according to Suffolk County Police Commissioner Timothy Sini.

    As President Trump makes headway in eliminating ISIS, another brutal gang called MS-13 has raised its ugly head in the “sanctuary cities” of America. These cities will hide these gangs and offer them a refuge. A refuge from what? Among other things, American law enforcement, President Trump, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions and Trump have made a promise to the American people they will be safe from this Gang’s takeover of American neighborhoods. Whether the neighborhood is a small town, a city, or a rural area, this El Salvadorian gang helps themselves in preying upon American citizens. They are...
