Getting tough on MS-13
Elizabeth Alvarado, Robert Mickens, Evelyn Rodriguez, and Freddy Cuevas joined President Donald J. Trump last week as four of the special guests for his first State of the Union Address. They are the parents of Nisa Mickens and Kayla Cuevas, two young girls who were killed by the gang MS-13 in September 2016.
It’s estimated that MS-13 has as many as 10,000 members in at least 40 states. In the immigration framework President Trump sent to Congress last month, the White House calls for a bill that will give law enforcement the tools it needs to combat this brutal gang and stop its proliferation into American communities.
Today, the President is hosting a roundtable with law enforcement professionals and community leaders to discuss what immigration reforms are needed to dismantle this transnational gang once and for all. SOURCE: The White House
