Wiki

So far this year, the US has deported 398 gang members back to El Salvador, compared with 534 in all of 2016. Salvadoran authorities are holding emergency meetings to determine how to deal with the gang members when they arrive back home.  The gang engages primarily in drug smuggling and human trafficking. It originated in Los Angeles in the 80’s, but its territory now extends from El Salvador to Canada.  –GEG

When migrants cross the border from El Salvador, they’re not sending their best. Criminals, drug dealers, and rapists have been sneaking into our great country in droves – which in the words of Donald Trump, “has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems.”

And while President Obama released nearly 600 illegal immigrants convicted of sex crimes in 2015 because their home countries wouldn’t take them – the ‘law and order’ President is doing the exact opposite…

The Washington Post, which, in a rare moment of journalistic integrity used verifiable sources, has reported that the government of El Salvador is freaking out over the record number of MS-13 gang members Trump has started to drop back in their home countries.

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 — has prompted Salvadoran authorities to hold emergency meetings and propose new legislation to monitor suspected criminals who are being sent home.

Trump has railed against MS-13

Throughout the 2016 election, Trump mentioned MS-13 in several tweets and speeches – citing the notably violent gang as a prime example of the types of violence illegal immigration, and rightly so. MS-13 is possibly the most notorious street gang in the Western Hemisphere. Originating in refugee-rich neighborhoods in Los Angeles in the 80’s, the gang’s territory now extends all the way from El Salvador to Canada – engaging primarily in human trafficking and drug smuggling.

In Central America, MS-13’s presence has contributed heavily to making the “Northern Triangle” of Guatamala, El Salvador, and Honduras – the most violent place in the world not at war. (more)
