At least 44 high-ranking members of the notorious MS-13 gang face federal charges after they were rounded up and arrested in Los Angeles pre-dawn police raids.
Hundreds of federal and local law enforcement officers fanned out across the city early Wednesday morning and stormed homes and storefronts to nab leaders of the Mara Salvatrucha gang.
Authorities – headed by the FBI – arrested 21 people at more than 40 locations on various charges, including narcotics trafficking and other violent crimes. Many of them were illegal immigrants.
Three alleged MS-13 gangsters were charged in the racketeering indictment for murders they committed in connection with the gang’s activities.
Illegal immigrants? You don’t say. In other words, the people rounded up are the people the California State Government wants to provide with free legal assistance, college tuition, and neck massages.
I mean, heaven forfend that these wonderful people should face deportation for such niggling offenses as drug trafficking, DUI’s, sex trafficking, armed robbery, assault, murder or those other robust benefits of an open borders/Sanctuary state.
I note these raids happened after three years of dithering under the Obama Administration.
