Big Round-Up Of MS-13 Gang Members In US

Big Round-Up Of MS-13 Gang Members In US

Sixteen of the arrestees are USA citizens and five have legal status in the United States, the department added.

"MS-13 is true to its motto of 'kill, rape, control, '" he said, adding, "These arrests announced today represent a victory for the rule of law".

Thomas Homan, ICE's deputy director, said this operation underscored the federal government's focus on targeting and dismantling MS-13, a priority of President Donald Trump.

A major crackdown led to the arrest of more than 200 alleged members and associates of the global street gang, MS-13, officials announced Wednesday.

The Oct. 8 to November 11 sweep was the second phase of Operation Raging Bull, which had previously netted 53 arrests in El Salvador, officials from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency told reporters.

The first phase of the operation, which was announced previously, resulted in 53 arrests in El Salvador in September.

ICE reports that 16 of the 214 arrested were U.S. citizens and 198 were foreign nationals, of which only five had legal status to be in the U.S. Foreign nationals arrested were from El Salvador (135), Honduras (29), Mexico (17), Guatemala (12), Ecuador (four) and Costa Rica (one). He said the arrests will help make the country safer "by taking MS-13 off our streets for good". "Sixteen of those arrested were US citizens and 198 were foreign nationals, of which only five had legal status to be in the United States".

In a statement, the Justice Department said a majority of the 214 MS-13 members arrested in the United States were from El Salvador and that 64 members had illegally entered the United States as "unaccompanied alien children".

Joseph Kolb, a researcher who has extensively studied the gang, said the Trump administration has made some progress in uprooting transnational criminal organizations. The violent group with roots in Los Angeles and El Salvador has followed immigrants fleeing violence in their home countries. An estimated 10,000 members live in the United States, according to the Justice Department.

Border Patrol Deputy Chief Scott Luck said his agents in the Rio Grande Valley Border Sector in Texas worked with the El Salvadoran joint border intelligence crew to detect, identify and collect information for confirmed MS-13 gang members within the United States.

Benner said 198 of the alleged MS-13 members who were arrested were foreign nationals, while 16 suspects were US citizens. "That individual reviewed asylum claims for MS-13 members targeted by the operation and assisted in assembling target packages for the immigration and/or criminal court proceedings of these gang members arrested during the operation", Cissna said.
