Attorney General Jeff Sessions vows to “devastate” the ruthless Central American gang MS-13

Attorney General Jeff Sessions vowed Tuesday to “devastate” the Central American gang MS-13, calling the group “one of the most violent gangs in the history of our country, no doubt about it.”

Sessions spoke to Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” hours after President Trump blamed what he called “the weak illegal immigration polices” of the Obama administration for allowing MS-13 to spread to cities across the U.S.

Sessions told host Tucker Carlson that he had “no doubt” that Obama’s policies led to the group’s growth, saying “so many of these people are illegally here, and they came without proper authority. And with a good, lawful border, many of them would not be here.”

The attorney general said that law enforcement had made progress against MS-13 until Obama took office, but “they’ve come back aggressively in recent years.”

Sessions added that under the last administration, gang members “were directed how to enter, if they came, and claim themselves as a minor and the Obama administration let them come in the country and took them to their destination city and turned them over to some relative that claimed to be a relative.”


According to Sessions, MS-13 “could qualify” as a terrorist group due to the extreme violence of its members.

“They use machetes, they kill children, they put children into prostitution at age 12.  They’re involved in the kinds of activities that can be identified and they can be prosecuted,” Sessions said. “I believe if we stay at it, we can devastate this organization and that’s going to be our goal.”

I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts. — Ronald Reagan
