Enforcing Immigration Laws Decimating MS-13

Long Island law enforcement is reporting that its war against MS-13 is making meaningful gains thanks in no small part to community policing and support from the federal government. According to a Newsday report, only four homicides tied to MS-13 were reported in 2018 compared with a staggering 14 in the previous calendar year. “Suffolk County has waged war against MS-13, and our comprehensive strategy to eradicate this violent gang from Long Island is working,” reported New York’s Suffolk County Police Department. “This dramatic reduction is a result of great policing, expanded community outreach and leveraging governmental partnerships to bring in additional resources to combat gang violence.” Read more..

The ongoing state and Trump administration crackdown against MS-13 in one of their most infamous strongholds has taken such a toll on the gang that they’ve only been linked to a single murder in the area during 2018.

Police in Long Island – a part of New York that has been a hotbed for violent crime at the hands of MS-13 – told Newsday that four homicides recorded there in 2018 appeared to be linked to the gang, down from 14 the year prior. Yet only one of those murders is said to have occurred this year. The other three cases were killings believed to have happened in 2015 and 2017, but they were counted in 2018 totals since the bodies were found within the past 12 months.

“Suffolk County has waged war against MS-13 and our comprehensive strategy to eradicate this violent gang from Long Island is working,” the Suffolk County Police Department told Fox News in a statement Monday. “This dramatic reduction is a result of great policing, expanded community outreach and leveraging governmental partnerships to bring in additional resources to combat gang violence.”
