Attorney General Jeff Sessions put the violent Central American gang MS-13 on notice during a Monday speech.

“Let’s crush this bunch. Let’s show them they can’t take over our streets.”

“We arrested and charged hundreds of people suspected of contributing to the opioid crisis,” Sessions said.

“We secured the convictions of nearly 500 traffickers and 1,200 gang members and worked with our international allies to arrest or charge more than 4,000 MS-13,” he continued. “We went down to El Salvador and they were pretty supportive. That’s a big problem in El Salvador. They don’t need to import it here. And if they’re caught here, they’re selling dope here, they’re illegally here, they’re out of here. Let me tell you that.”

“They know that hundreds of their members are now behind bars, so now they’re trying younger, more violent members to the United States to replenish their ranks,” he continued. “But that’s not going to succeed here. We are going to continue to pound them.”

“And I hope that if you people are out on the street, if you identify MS-13 members, I hope you’ll just help us. Because this is the most violent gang. What is it, ‘Murder, rape and control’ is their motto? They’re by far the most violent gang. So let’s crush this bunch. Let’s show them they can’t take over our streets.”
