Despite dozens of vicious MS-13 gang members — mostly illegals — captured in a Los Angeles raid, AZ Sens. McCain and Flake remain committed to amnesty
Following a three-year investigation involving multiple law enforcement agencies, dozens of members of the murderous MS-13 gang have been charged in a Los Angeles federal court in what law enforcement officials called one of the most significant busts of the transnational gang in its notorious decades-long history.
Among those arrested is a former head of the entire gang in Los Angeles and a dozen high-ranking members, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Central District of California announced in this statement. The vast majority of these gang members are illegal aliens.
“This gang is responsible for murders –- both of rival gangsters and innocent bystanders –- as well as drug dealing and extortion in many communities in the Los Angeles area,” said Acting United States Attorney Sandra R. Brown. “With thousands of members here in the Southland, the gang’s power is widespread –– power which it maintains with severe acts of violence.”
The investigation involved nearly two dozen law enforcement agencies led by the FBI, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Drug Enforcement Agency and the Los Angeles Police Department.
“This gang uses coercion and intimidation while inflicting horrific violence in the neighborhoods where they operate,” said ATF Los Angeles Field Division Special Agent in Charge Eric Harden. “Today is a great win for justice and a heavy message to the community. Law enforcement will combine their resources and all our areas of expertise to cripple these organizations. We will win, they will lose.”
MS-13 started three decades ago on the streets of L.A., and was originally made up young illegals from El Salvador. Today its tentacles reach throughout Central America and across the United States — from the west to east coasts with a series of gruesome slayings recently in New York City. Last month President Donald Trump singled out the vicious gang as “one of the gravest threats to American safety.”
Yet Arizona Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake, who led the failed 2013 Gang of Eight amnesty scheme with a gaggle of the most far left Democrats and a couple of other RINOs, remain dedicated to gifting rights belonging to Americans to illegal invaders from Mexico and Central America. They no doubt hope to wait until after Jeff Flake’s 2018 reelection bid before flipping on the neon “enter here” switch and rolling out the amnesty welcome mat again. Don’t provide the opportunity. Stop Jeff Flake with your ballot.
Dr. Kelli Ward offers Arizonans a far better, conservative choice — unlike Republicrats McCain and Flake who both refused to vote for the 2016 GOP presidential nominee — now President Donald Trump.
