PLEDGES TO DESTROY BRUTAL STREET GANG
by Sharon Rondeau
MS-13 has been compared to ISIS, the Middle-Eastern radical Islamic terror group.
The subject of eradicating MS-13 had been expounded upon by Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan at Thursday’s White House press briefing.
Trump said that as a result of the “border surge” of the Obama years and specifically 2014, 42 unaccompanied minors who crossed the border into the U.S. are now suspected of having become associated with MS-13.
His remarks were often punctuated with the pledge that his administration would support law enforcement in its efforts to remove criminal illegal aliens from American streets. Trump referred to the Obama regime more than once as having failed to enforce U.S. immigration law and to remove dangerous criminal illegals from U.S. communities.
Toward the end of his speech, Trump thanked local, state and federal law-enforcement officers for their work. “You’re spectacular people,” Trump told the group at 2:42 p.m.
His remarks lasted approximately 30 minutes, after which Fox News host Shepard Smith said that Trump “went off-script” to talk about his 2016 campaign and what the media portrayed as his very unlikely win.
