The unfortunate reality behind the Democrats’ support of illegal immigration is that it opens the door for gang members to enter our country.
Particularly dangerous are members of the MS-13 gang who have terrorized communities in the U.S. for years. In an interview with FNC’s Tucker Carlson, a former hitman for the gang reveals the blood chilling reality of working for the gang: “I even killed members of my own gang…and I killed relatives too.”
As part of his new series, Hunting MS-13, Tucker Carlson traveled with Attorney General Jeff Sessions to El Salvador where he explored the world of the gang and its members. His findings were deeply disturbing and told of a world of violence and terror.
One interview, in particular, stood out from the others. A former “trigger-man” for the gang living in El Salvador spoke candidly about his history with MS-13. Carlson referred to him as the “most compelling person” he met on the entire trip.
The man said he committed his first murder for the gang at the young age of 15. The victim was a salesman who acted as a police informant. The man said he killed the victim by stabbing him numerous times. Most unsettling was when he said he killed “members of my own gang” and “relatives too, my brothers…”
The former hitman explained he did it in order to follow the rules of the gang. The numerous murders he committed for the MS-13 were out of loyalty–not profit, not advancement, but for his deep loyalty to the gang.
The man’s interview gives a disturbing insight into one of the bloodiest gangs in existence. The MS-13 gang is responsible for 17 brutal murders that occurred in Suffolk County, Long Island in less than two years.
Trump was in Long Island last week for a speech where he vowed to end the MS-13 threat in the U.S., saying, “Together we’re going to restore safety to our streets and peace to our communities and we’re going to destroy the vile, criminal cartel MS-13 and many other gangs.”
Many liberals have claimed that Trump’s speech is nothing more than fear-mongering designed to advance his campaign against illegal immigration.
President Trump has made it a priority to eliminate MS-13 from the U.S. Do you think MS-13 is a threat to our country?
Casey Harden, CEO of YWCA criticized the speech, claiming, “This race-centered aggression and lack of nuance is unacceptable from our nation’s leader. We are insistent that the president and his administration immediately stop reinforcing hateful attitudes and promoting oppressive policies. YWCA USA is dedicated to eliminating racism, wherever it appears and by any means necessary. As such, we will continue to speak out against race-based fear-mongering and unjust public policies,” reported USA Today.
While it is certainly true that the majority of illegal immigrants entering and within the U.S. are not affiliated with MS-13 or any other gangs, it’s still important that we work to prevent these gangs from entering the country. The best way to do that is to prevent new members from entering the U.S. and deporting those that are here.
Despite what liberals want us to believe, wanting to be safe from violent gangs has nothing to do with racism.
