    Thank you, Jeff Sessions, for crushing MS-13

    Thank you, Jeff Sessions, for crushing MS-13

    As Attorney General Jeff Sessions leaves his post, the parents of many Long Island communities should pay homage to his decisive actions, which may have saved their children’s lives.

    The vicious MS-13 gang was allowed to metastasize over the last decade, especially in the Long Island area — in large part, because of the foolish policies of the Obama administration, which did little to prevent unaccompanied minors from flooding over our southern border.

    It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure out that allowing teenage boys to be sent to communities without guardians would leave them remarkably vulnerable to the clutches of local gangs, like MS-13.

    Yet more than 8,000 unaccompanied minors were relocated to the Long Island suburbs starting in 2013. Most of them were typical immigrants just seeking a better life. But some — enough of them — were already made MS-13 members in their home nations; others were absorbed into the gangs once they arrived.

    On Long Island, the gang grew in size and stature and soon was taking over entire neighborhoods and controlling our schools. To be accepted in the gang, recruits had to engage in vicious initiations, including murder.

    These suburban LI communities were now seeing dozens of their young people, mostly students in the local high schools, having their lives snuffed out — sometimes just for giving a misperceived look or wearing an inappropriate color.

    In Suffolk County, the problem was exacerbated by county officials, who bought into the sanctuary city mentality, and in 2012 ended their cooperation with the federal government. The anti-gang task force I established as county executive and that coordinated with the FBI was disbanded.

    Again, it didn’t take a Nostradamus to predict this would spell disaster. It did.

    In response to the mounting slaughter of school children in Brentwood and Central Islip, the Obama administration responded in the typical progressive manner. It sought to discuss root problems and social remedies.

    Then someone new took occupancy of the White House and tapped Jeff Sessions as AG.

    Sessions visited Suffolk County personally and promised a different approach. He channeled massive federal resources to the area and flooded it with FBI agents, tackling the problem primarily as a law enforcement issue. It worked.

    Eventually, the county wised up and reversed its horrible decision to not work with the feds. But it was Sessions and his commitment to weed out MS-13 that produced the results.

    One gang member after another was brought to justice. The gang has been neutralized and the community has been given back to the people.

    There has not been a single murder of a Brentwood or Central Islip students since Sessions took charge.

    New York’s governor and local officials sought to jump on the bandwagon by proposing all kinds of costly social programs so that they could claim they had a part in bringing down crime in this area. That’s all window dressing. The person who made a difference was Sessions.

    He understood this was first and foremost a law enforcement matter, and he boldly put the full resources of the United States government into play. No Sociology 101 babble about youth programs. Just pure, tough police work. Surveillance, investigations and arrests.

    Of course, there were the ACLU types criticizing the FBI’s tough interrogation methods, but they got little traction. Sessions would not wilt at this politically correct nonsense.

    Nor did parents in the area give any credence to the critics. They saw they were getting their schools and neighborhoods back, and the fear that had gripped this community started to dissipate.

    President Trump has his issues with Sessions related to the Russia probe, but there can be no doubt that when it came to carrying out the president’s desire to crush MS-13, Jeff Sessions followed through.

    The people of Long Island, as well as communities around the nation, owe him a great deal of gratitude.

    I don't think the basic flaws in DOJ or DHS is with the leadership. They need to develop some teams to take on their burning issues. Both departments have a lot to do besides immigration control. If anything, Congress needs to give them more resources in developing strategies----not putting all of our eggs in one basket ($25 billion border wall.)

    The first I heard the FBI had anything to do with MS-13. I guess the ones who are citizens would fall under FBI responsibility. The illegal aliens were all handled by ICE out of DHS.

    Yes, Captainron, you're right, and the $25 billion was not all for "wall", it was the funding for Trump's 70 immigration reform plan that included 15,000 more ICE agents, 5,000 more Border Patrol agents, 1,000 new immigration prosecutors, 500 new immigration judges, Visa Entry/Exit Tracking System, more federal detention centers for illegal aliens, more funds for illegal alien removals, an employee verification system, E-verify or other similar type program, all needed support personnel, vehicles, equipment, computers, softwares, gear, equipment, vans, jail space, tents, surveillance cameras, air support, a very thorough, broad-based program to solve this problem once and for all rather quickly, in addition to the wall that was included in this $25 billion. Trump couldn't get it passed because we didn't have enough votes in the Senate, so when the DACA fiasco came up in late 2017, that's when he tried to use the DACA deal as a bargaining chip to get all of this for us.

    We of course opposed all those bills here, because of the DACA component.

    The only other way to pass such a bill without a DACA component would be to hold the House in the mid-terms and elect enough more Republican Senators to have 60 votes in the Senate to pass the bill.

    Of course, the plan/hope of having enough votes to pass an immigration control bill of any type that we would want died on November 6, 2018 when DemoQuacks won control of the US House of Representatives.

    Even now 7 weeks after the election, the reality of where we are in all of this doesn't seem to have sunk in yet.

    Not true. The FBI also pursues illegal alien MS-13 gang members in some cases.

    Once again, not true. Trump requested 25 billion specifically for the border wall and 5 billion for other security measures.

    If you've got evidence contrary to what I've provided that says otherwise, please provide it. Heck, it would be nice if you would provide your sources anyway. Doing that would prevent us from having to verify your claims.

    What was the price tag of the entire DACA deal if the wall alone was $25 billion of it? Four of those bills went to a vote so there would have been fiscal notes attached to all of them. The only number I ever heard was $25 billion and included everything. It doesn't really matter at this point, I guess, all lost water under the bridge now.
