The current Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement has a few choice words for members of the violent MS-13 gang, and they aren’t going to like it.Our immigration enforcement officers have been targeting the violent gang, based in El Salvador, hot and heavy since Trump took office with devastating results.
Devastating for MS-13, that is.TheBlaze is reporting, Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan told The Daily Caller: “My gang is bigger than theirs.”
He went on to say that ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations “targets many gangs” but noted that the investigative team is decidedly focused on MS-13 because “they seem to be the most violent right now and they think they can act with impunity.”
“We’re taking this seriously. My gang is bigger than theirs, and we are going to take them out,” Homan said. “That’s the goal. The president supports that. We’re going to follow through on the president’s promise, and we are going to take out MS-13 as much as we can.”Homan’s stark warning to MS-13 echoes comments from President Donald Trump, who last month said the violent gang is being “depleted” and “will be gone pretty soon.”
“They’re being thrown out in record numbers and rapidly,” the president said at the time.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is what real leadership looks like, and how you take appropriate action to ensure the safety of your citizens.There’s little doubt that Trump’s strongest issue is immigration, as he’s done a rather fine job of making sure our national security is upheld by deporting illegals, dissuading others from crossing the border, and nailing gang members who come here to expand their criminal empires.
We’re a nation of laws, and now we’re finally starting to act like it after eight years of allowing ourselves to be walked on.
Let’s hope that wall gets built soon and even more of this sort of activity fades away.[This article was written by Steve Parker]
