Default 263 arrested in gang sweep targeting MS-13

This happened 6 hours ago....

Just GREAT NEWS for all concerned, yet don't think this killed MS-13 or even slowed it down.
As it is considered a transnational Gang., with members in aboput every state. And some states have larger units which spread out to smaller towns,

Yet it is a strike for good. And there are many LINKS with in this news story.

263 arrested in gang sweep targeting MS-13

263 arrested in gang sweep: Of the 263 gang members arrested in the nationwide sweep by ICE, 60 percent were MS-13 members.


David Clark Scott6 hours agoSociety

The US government is beefing up efforts to undermine the Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), a multinational street gang.

On Friday, the Homeland Security Investigations unit of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency announced that it had arrested 361 people in July and August during a nationwide sweep targeting members of MS-13.

Of the 361 arrests, 263 were gang members and associates from 43 different gangs in 71 US cities. Of the 98 others caught during the operation, 84 were non-gang members wanted on criminal charges and 14 were arrested for immigration violations. Out of the 263 gang members arrested, 60 percent were MS-13.

The operation, dubbed "Project Razor's Edge," was conducted from July 15 to Aug. 9. The stated intent of the operation was "to combat the national security and public safety threats posed by MS-13 gang members and associates and to ultimately identify, target, arrest, and prosecute MS-13 gang members and associates as well as their rival gangs," according to a statement by ICE.

Another LINK from this news story: RECOMMENDED: Crime falls in the US. Are you safer today?

..................................... SKIPPED SOME

MS-13 has more than 30,000 members with branches operating in Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico, according to the Treasury.

At least 8,000 MS-13 members – often identified by elaborate tattoos that incorporate the gang’s name – operate in 40 states and the District of Columbia, Treasury officials say.

Project Razor's Edge included the arrest of four MS-13 gang leaders. Since 2005, Homeland Security Investigations reports that it has arrested more than 30,672 street gang members, including 4,265 MS-13 gang members or associates.

Separately, a MS-13 gang leader was sentenced Thursday to two consecutive life terms after being convicted of murder, maiming, and conspiracy in Virginia.

................................. SKIPPED SOME .......................

The teens who carried out the attacks also were convicted and were previously sentenced to 34 years and 18 years in prison.

In a sentencing memorandum in the Bran case, last month, prosecutors wrote: “Individuals who would consider joining or aiding MS-13 and members and associates of MS-13 must be deterred. MS-13 is a nihilistic gang that encourages and celebrates violence."

when the Feds bring down this many at one time it shows several things.

1. How large this gang is and remember it is called a "transnational criminal organization" which is far more than some gang hanging on a few street corners.

2. That the Feds sources nled about every where and some still being looked at as this is nowhere near done & over.

3. Depending on basic facts if they allow any Bonds these guys will be gone in a flash while others come into paly and take their place yet untouchable.

4... The Jets vs the Jacksonville are now playing so time to stop this posting for today.

Trump Lauds Officers, Calls MS-13 a Scourge
May 16, 2017 - WASHINGTON — Law enforcement officers are the “thin blue line between civilization and chaos,” President Donald Trump said yesterday before a sea of uniformed men and women assembled at the Capitol to honor police lives lost in the line of duty.
Quote:
Trump said he envisions a country completely devoid of crime and cited MS-13 street gang as a scourge, speaking to frequent applause at the annual National Peace Officers Memorial Day service. “Freedom includes the right to be free — and I mean totally free — from crime and from violence,” he said. “MS-13 is going to be gone from our streets very soon, believe me.” Authorities say the MS-13 gang, which has a national presence, is responsible for a series of savage slayings in Brentwood and Central Islip, with the local body count of victims in incidents linked or thought to be related to gangs rising to 11 in the last year.

The president, who has enjoyed broad support from police, received standing ovations when he was introduced and when he took the stage. “We love you, Donald!” a man in the audience shouted at one point. Earlier Monday in the Oval Office, Trump signed a proclamation noting that he has directed the Justice Department to “better prevent and prosecute acts of violence” against police. He spoke about the 118 officers who died last year in the line of duty. Trump was joined by members of the Ulster County Sheriff’s Department, the New Jersey State Police and the Phoenix Police Department, all of which lost officers last year.


Trump said he envisions a country completely devoid of crime and cited MS-13 street gang as a scourge, speaking to frequent applause at the annual National Peace Officers Memorial Day service.

In the shadow of the Capitol, he stressed that he believes police risking their lives deserve more respect because they have been subject to vilification. “It is our duty as a people and as a nation to prove worthy of their sacrifice,” Trump said of the fallen. “That begins with showing our police the appreciation they have earned a thousand times over.” Vice President Mike Pence had said Trump makes “no apologies” for his unwavering backing of police, and Trump added: “I will always support the incredible men and women of law enforcement as much as you have always supported me.” The president said he has witnessed, as a New Yorker, how the NYPD keeps communities safe. He spoke also about the sacrifice of officers during the 9/11 terror attacks.

NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill has criticized the Trump administration for a budget proposal that O’Neill said would eradicate counterterrorism funding and for a Justice Department news release that called the NYPD “soft on crime” when it comes to illegal immigration. But the leader of the sergeants union has said Trump has the support of rank-and-file NYPD members. The White House was lit Monday in blue to honor fallen police officers, and flags were flown at half-staff.

Though little Kim most likely would strap them one by one to a missile and send them back to us if the missile didn't explode while in flight.

Hey if this is part of the immigration crack down I am all for it. Codoos to Trump for getting it working right.

I was looking for this news on a early morning raid in LA that got 20 MS-13 suspected gang members and check out what I found. And this news is in this site which any one checking gang activities will want to save in favorites.

Judge Frees Illegal Immigrant MS-13 Member Because Of ‘Rights Violations’
June 22, 2017 | An Obama-appointed federal judge in Virginia early this month released a Honduran teen who sold drugs, illegally crossed the U.S. border, and was a member of the violent street gang MS-13.
Quote:
U.S. District Judge Elizabeth K. Dillon ordered the 17-year-old to be released because his “rights had been violated” after he crossed the Rio Grande and turned himself in to U.S. Border Patrol, the Washington Post reported. “The judge ruled that, by holding the illegal alien gangbanger without a hearing, the government violated his rights to due process and family unity,” according to Judicial Watch. The former gang-member’s identity has not been revealed due to his status as a minor. The teen claimed to have sold drugs and witnessed several murders during his time with Mara Salvatrucha, the gang better known as MS-13, but that he had never participated in a killing. He will be living with his mother and half-siblings in their home in Kentucky.

During the Obama administration, more than 150,000 minor aliens entered the country illegally by way of the southern border. The Department of Homeland Security has said that unaccompanied alien children (UACs) pose several threats to the United States, and that violent street gangs like MS-13 actively recruit new members in units where UACs are held. “Both the MS-13 and the 18th Street gangs embarked on a recruiting frenzy at the various facilities housing the newly arrived illegal aliens,” said Judicial Watch, citing law enforcement sources. “The UACs also brought in dangerous diseases – including swine flu, dengue fever, Ebola virus and tuberculosis – and occupied the nation’s military bases as shelters.” Gang members were also reportedly using phones provided by the Red Cross to communicate.

The Justice Department’s National Gang Intelligence Center (NGIC) has said that MS-13 and other violent street games are responsible for “the majority of violent crimes in the U.S. and are the primary distributors of most illicit drugs.” “A year after the Obama administration began allowing droves of UACs to remain in the U.S., the Texas Department of Public Safety confirmed that the MS-13 emerged as a top tier gang in the Lone Star State thanks to the influx of illegal alien gang members that crossed into the state the previous year,” Judicial Watch reported. “Last month, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) sent a letter to the ORR [Office of Refugee Resettlement], demanding to know if it had released any unaccompanied minors with admitted gang ties,” according to the Washington Post. “This teen may be the first known case, but he is not the only one. In a statement to The Washington Post, the agency said it had released ‘a small number’ of children with ‘minimal’ gang affiliation to live with relatives.”

In April, Attorney General Jeff Sessions voiced concern about UACs and gang members crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. “If they come as undocumented minors, the federal government transports them wherever in the interior they say they’d like to go,” he said. “The bad guys know how this system works, and they have exploited it.”
