MSNBC Joy Reid: “He gives a speech tonight, in which he makes it sound like the biggest issue in the United States, the biggest threat is MS-13, a gang nobody that doesn’t watch Fox News has ever heard of.”
( Fox New ) Often-misinformed MSNBC star Joy Reid is under the impression that international criminal gang MS-13 isn’t a major issue and the only people that have even heard of the thugs are regular viewers of Fox News.
During Tuesday’s State of the Union address, President Trump kicked off the immigration portion of his speech by detailing the horror of two teenage girls who were killed by MS-13, an international crime gang comprised mainly of El Salvador immigrants, while their parents were in the building.
“Two precious girls were brutally murdered while walking together in their hometown,” Trump said. “Four men associated with MS-13 have been charged with the killings… I am calling on the Congress to finally close the deadly loopholes that have allowed MS-13, and other criminals, to break into our country.”
During MSNBC’s coverage of the State of the Union, Reid mocked the president’s remarks while analyzing the speech with “Hardball” host Chris Matthews.
“He gives a speech tonight, in which he makes it sound like the biggest issue in the United States, the biggest threat is MS-13, a gang nobody that doesn’t watch Fox News has ever heard of. So he makes it sound like they’re the biggest threat.”
Reid said Trump simply mentioned the deadly gang to accommodate the “audience he wants applause from.”
President Trump: “You know the jail stuff is wonderful but, we have to pay for it, right?… To any member of MS-13 listening, I have a message for you: We will find you. We will arrest you. We will jail you. We will throw you the hell out of the country.”
“Who the hell wants to take care of them?,” President Donald Trump told graduates of the FBI National Academy while speaking about the MS-13 transnational criminal gang. During his speech in Quantico, Virginia, the commander-in-chief said it was cheaper to deport the hyper-violent gang members than to jail them.
“To any member of MS-13 listening, I have a message for you: We will find you,” the president said on Friday. “We will arrest you. We will jail you. We will throw you the hell out of the country.”
The president continued, “I mean, somehow, I like it better than jail. Jail we have to take care of them. Who the hell wants to take care of them.” The graduates responded with applause. “You know the jail stuff is wonderful but, we have to pay for it, right?”
Obama administration bypassed security background checks for DACA recipients
Some of those young illegals and migrants have drifted into various criminal gangs, such as MS-13.
Obama’s deputies even sent some known MS-13 members into the United States.
Homeland Security is withholding a lot of data about the DACA applicants
One-in-ten of the 850,000 adult illegals then potentially eligible for DACA had two-year vocational college qualification
Outside researchers do not know how many DACA recipients have college degrees, how many speak English or how many have criminal records
President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton said in a statement Tuesday that the Obama administration bypassed security background checks for DACA recipients – meaning some of young illegals and migrants have drifted into various criminal gangs, such as MS-13.
DACA has kept a population of roughly 900,000 young adult illegals in the United States and also encouraged 400,000 Central American migrants into Americans’ neighborhoods and schools.
Some of those young illegals and migrants have drifted into various criminal gangs, such as MS-13. Obama’s deputies even sent some known MS-13 members into the United States. The inflow of gang-bangers is causing a growing pile of dead teenagers and youths in New York, Texas, Virginia and several other states.MS-13 members are also facing rape charges. Other non-DACA young migrants add to the background level of crime. In June, for example, a young migrant from Central America was charged with killing an American girl on her way to a mosque in Virginia.
Even if the rate of crime by the illegals is lower than similar-aged Americans, Obama’s inflow has killed a few handfuls of Americans and immigrants. Each of those additional dead Americans is dead, regardless of the relative crime rate.
The federal government has yet to release data about the numbers of crimes by DACA-approved people.
DACA Is Not Sending The Best and Brightest
In 2014, fewer than one-in-ten of the 850,000 adult illegals then potentially eligible for DACA had two-year vocational college qualification or better, said a 2014 estimate by the pro-DACA group, the Migration Policy Institute.
Only 1 percent, or 9,000 of the 850,000 younger adult illegals, had an advanced degree — while 60 percent only have a high-school exit credential. Only 1 percent, or 9,000 of the 850,000 younger adult illegals, had an advanced degree in 2014, while 60 percent only had a high-school exit credential.
Even the most flattering study of 1,472 young illegal migrants paints a disastrous picture. Three-in-four earned less than $25,000 a year, and only one-in-four earn enough to cover their monthly expenses, said the study, which was prepared by a former illegal immigrant who is now an advocate for amnesty and who works with the left-wing Center for American Progress.
Another study by the same activist — Tom Wong of the University of California, San Diego — showed that half of 467 DACA recipients were earning less than $15 per hour.Worse, Wong’s study is not even an accurate sample of the DACA people — roughly 83 percent of people used in the study were from the tiny percent of DACA people had college degrees or were enrolled in college.
The Department of Homeland Security is withholding a lot of data about the DACA applicants. For example, outside researchers do not know how many DACA recipients have college degrees, how many speak English or how many have criminal records. Obama’s deputies declined to release the data, which suggests the numbers are not flattering.
“Gangs threaten the safety of our communities, not just in major metropolitan areas, but in our suburbs and rural areas, too,” ICE Acting Director Thomas Homan said Thursday. “Gang-related violence and criminal activity present an ongoing challenge for law enforcement everywhere.”
According to ICE, of the 1,378 total arrested, 933 were U.S. citizens, and 1,095 were confirmed as gang members or affiliates. Also, 104 of those arrested were affiliated with the dreaded MS-13 gang, eight of whom illegally crossed the border as unaccompanied minors.
“Our efforts to dismantle gangs are much more effective in areas where partnership with local law enforcement is strongest,” Homan said.
During the operation, HSI partnered with other law enforcement agencies to seize more than 200 firearms, narcotics like cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, fentanyl and marijuana and $491,763 in U.S. currency.
Enforcement actions occurred across the nation, but the greatest activity took place in the Houston, New York City, Atlanta and Newark, N.J., areas.
( Daily Mail ) An El Salvadorian man who has been deported from the U.S. four times is accused of sexually assaulting his girlfriend’s two-year-old daughter and brutally stabbing two women in a vicious New York crime spree.
Tommy Vladim Alvarado-Ventura allegedly beat and sexually assaulted the toddler at the home he shares with his girlfriend in Hempstead, New York in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
The 31-year-old, who is a member of the violent El Salvadorian gang MS-13, is also accused of stabbing a woman at a bar and brutally attacking his girlfriend in the hours that followed.
Police said Alvarado-Ventura was home with his girlfriend’s daughter and her four-year-old son while she was at work on Tuesday night. The children were being watched by another tenant who lives in a separate part of the home.
Authorities say he beat and sexually assaulted the girl, but it is not clear what time the attack took place. The child’s injuries were so severe she had to undergo surgery, ABCreports.
Police described Alvarado-Ventura’s violent five-hour crime spree as the ‘most heinous criminal act’ they had seen.
Alvarado-Ventura left the home at about 12.30am and went to a nearby bar where he got into an argument with a young woman over some marijuana
