Atty General Sessions Goes GANGSTA on Friends of Obama
Attorney General Jeff Sessions speaks softly, and has that easy-going Southern drawl. Because of that Sessions appears weak at times. But as he proves against MS-13, he’s far from weak/
Obama knowingly allowed MS-13 Gang members into the US, seemingly unconcerned about collateral damage.
Here’s how the Left spins MS-13, saying “Don’t blame Obama!”.
While the number of members in the U.S. is murky, the FBI estimates 6,000 in recent years and 30,000 internationally. At least 46 states and Washington, D.C., have reported the infiltration of their “cliques” — typically linked to drug trafficking, low-level extortion, rape and in extreme instances, murder, including a grisly quadruple homicide on Long Island, New York, last week.
“Violence is an initiation rite,” Sessions said.
But experts caution against laying the blame for their growth squarely on Obama-era immigration policies, and say decades of unchecked violence in Central America has only exacerbated the problem.
Admittedly, Obama didn’t create gangs or the problems of the Left. However, his solutions to problems help nothing. The gang grew under his not so watchful eye, and now causes major problems within the United States.
Moreover, there is little doubt that Obama was not the law and order president.
During the election, then candidate-Trump promised to crack down on MS-13. He carefully put together an administration capable of following through on that promise.
As we previously examined:
With approximately 50,000 members globally, MS-13 has more than 10,000 members in the United States. In fact, at least 42 states have known MS-13 problems. And these problems manifest themselves in a variety of ways, including human trafficking.
Now, according to Jeff Sessions, the gangs are responsible for numerous deaths in New York City. He’s ready to think outside the box. In fact, Sessions proclaimed: “we’ll use whatever laws necessary to get them off the streets.”
As Fox News noted:
The gang has become a prime target of President Trump’s administration amid its broader crackdown on immigration.
“They leave misery, devastation and death in their wake. Further, they threaten entire governments. They must be and will be stopped,” the attorney general said, while in Philadelphia.
Recently, two teenage girls were beaten and hacked to death in a suspected gang attack on Long Island. The girls were among 22 victims who’ve died on Long Island since the start of 2016. Most of the people arrested in those killings were in the U.S. illegally, law enforcement officials have said.
Unfortunately, under Obama’s leadership, these gangsters learned the art of avoiding prosecution. MS-13 skates the law much like Al Capone. And Obama’s lax policies allowed for the gang to flourish. Sessions put an end to the gang operating on the fringes of the law. He made their illegal activities clearly illegal, with no ambiguity.
But the new designation will allow officials to target MS-13 with a “renewed vigor and a sharpened focus,” said Sessions.
In fact, this designation directs prosecutors to pursue all legal avenues, including racketeering, gun and tax laws, to target the gang.
Obama ushered MS-13 in, however President Trump wants them gone. Therefore, Attorney General Sessions issued an all out assault against MS-13. Just as Trump is wiping ISIS off the map, MS-13 will soon meet a similar fate. Leftists will surely find something to belly ache over, as they gravitate towards illegal immigrants operating as criminal masterminds. However, Sessions won’t be deterred. He will follow the President’s directive until MS-13 is nothing but a memory of the Obama era.
