In making the fight against MS-13 a priority, Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday was in El Salvador, meeting with his counterpart to organize an attack on the gang in its home base.

It is estimated that there are roughly 10,000 members of MS 13 in the US today, mostly of Salvadorean descent.

Speaking Friday before an audience of law enforcement officers at Suffolk County Community College, Trump blamed past administrations for failing to enforce immigration laws.

"They don't like shooting people because it's too quick".

The bodies of four young men who had been murdered was discovered in April in Central Islip Park.

Trump's plan, according to a White House official and reported by The Hill, focuses on heavy policing of immigrants and an overall crackdown on illegal immigration. The FBI estimates that it has roughly 10,000 members in the US, though those numbers are fuzzy. He has oversight of the largest suburban correctional facility in New York State, and participates in the FBI Long Island Gang Task Force, the Long Island DEA Task Force, Homeland Security Investigations (HIS) and the US Marshals Service New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force.

Heavy thunderstorms produced between one and three inches of rain inside the warned area within just a few hours Friday morning. Thursday through the weekend we'll see a very similar pattern: warm humid days with afternoon and evening rain chances.

More states are moving to raise the legal smoking age to 21
While the sale of e-cigarettes is banned in Australia, U.K provides a license to e-cigarettes as a smoking cessation aid. The authors write that things like national ad campaigns against smoking and a tobacco tax probably helped, too.

Human trafficking tragedy claims 10 lives in US
Security camera footage from the parking lot showed several cars arriving to pick up people who had survived the journey. The driver was arrested at the scene in what Texas authorities are calling a horrendous case of human trafficking .

The gang has taken root in several major USA metropolitan areas in the past few decades.

The gang is implicated in the deaths of hundreds of people.

People claiming they were mistakenly included in gang databases and then targeted for deportation have filed at least two lawsuits, said Paromita Shah of the National Immigration Project at the National Lawyers Guild.

Congressman Peter King, who represents Brentwood and was traveling with the president from Washington, said Trump's appearance would send a signal to communities that have been shaken by the violent killings. He said the Republican president was "throwing meat to a red base". "We say loud and clear that he is not welcomed here".

He is scheduled to depart the White House around 10 a.m. Friday, landing at Long Island MacArthur Airport around 1:30 p.m., and Donovan (R-Staten Island/Brooklyn) will travel with him.

"We are not all criminals", she said.
