When Trump promised he would be the law and order president, he meant it.
We already know about how the Justice Department and ICE have been cracking down on illegal immigration.
The lion share of their arrests and deportations have been of violent gang members. Drug cartels from other nations that have been operating in the U.S. are getting their butts kicked, because Sessions and ICE are actually getting them out of the country.
But as it turns out, that has created a new problem, for other nations.
From The Daily Wire:
The Trump administration is sending violent gang members back to their home countries in droves — so many that one country is dreading what’s to come.
El Salvador authorities are holding emergency meetings and trying to come up with new laws to keep track of all the criminals being deported from the U.S., The Washington Post reports.
This year the U.S. government has deported 398 gang members to this country, compared with 534 in all of 2016, according to Salvadoran government statistics.
This sharp increase in the rate of gang deportations — and the prospect of more gang roundups in the United States — has prompted Salvadoran authorities to hold emergency meetings and propose new legislation to monitor suspected criminals who are being sent home.
Oh, too bad! El Salvador will actually have to deal with its problem, instead of shipping it to us. Did they really think they could let their worst criminals flee to America, and make us deal with them?
Are we supposed to be upset that El Salvador now has to properly prosecute and police their own criminals? For years they’ve outsourced these thugs to our country, costing American lives by the droves. But now that they’re being sent back, El Salvador’s concerned?
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced this month the arrest of more than 1,300 gang members across the country in what it described as the largest anti-gang crackdown in agency history…
This is the opposite of what former president Barack Obama did. “The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency released nearly 600 illegal immigrants convicted of sex crimes, many because their home countries refused to take them back, according to newly obtained documents,” the Washington Examiner wrote.
Imagine that. Coward Obama let violent criminals and rapists stick around, just because El Salvador and other nations said “No.” Really? Obama was willing to put American lives at risk, so as not to upset other nations? How can anyone still think he was a good president?
Thank God we now have leaders who actually care about the safety of Americans.
