President Trump blames the rise of MS-13 gang violence on former President Obama’s ‘weak illegal immigration policies’ (see Tweet).
Trump said on Fox & Friends:
‘I’m talking about illegal immigrants that were here that caused tremendous crime that have murdered people, raped people. Horrible things have happened. They are getting the hell out, or they are going to prison.’
Recent murders within communities on Long Island, New York, are suspected to have occurred by MS-13 gang members including the deaths of four male teenagers found brutally beaten in a park last week.
Last year, four teenagers that attended the same high school were found murdered.
Since 2010, it’s estimated at least 30 individuals have been murdered on Long Island in connection with gang violence.
