Nearly 300 MS-13 Gang Members Arrested in Nationwide Bust

Nearly 300 MS-13 Gang Members Arrested in Nationwide Bust

In September, the U.S. Justice Department and authorities from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras announced criminal charges against more than 3,800 members of the two gangs, 70 of them in six U.S. states.

Ninety-three of 214 arrestees are charged with federal or state criminal offenses and will face prison time in the United States, said Derek Benner, the deputy executive associate director of the Homeland Security Investigations division.

"We know he's an MS-13 member?"

This was the second phase of a federal effort to target MS-13.

He added, "This is a great operation, but we are not done and we will not be done until we totally dismantle this organization".

Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Thomas Homan on Thursday touted Operation Raging Bull, an 18-month operation that resulted in the arrests of 267 suspected MS-13 gang members and associates.

Twitter doubles length of tweets to 280 characters
Twitter in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean is staying at the 140-character limit, as those languages fit more into fewer characters. The 140-character limit has been around as long as Twitter has been and has become part of the product's personality.

The gang originated in Los Angeles in the 1980s, then entrenched itself in Central America when its leaders were deported. It was the lead federal agency in "Operation Raging Bull" that took place between October 8 and November 11. "Sixteen of those arrested were US citizens and 198 were foreign nationals, of which only five had legal status to be in the United States". An arrest in Los Angles yielded a man who had an Interpol Red Notice, a form of global arrest warrant, for gang-related offenses and who is a suspect in the murder of a police officer in El Salvador.

MS-13 is described as one of the most unsafe criminal organization in the country and the D.C. area is no exception. "Operation Raging Bull" took place from September to November and utilized ICE, Border Patrol, USCIS, Bureau of Prisons, and other domestic and worldwide law enforcement agencies to identify and arrest members of MS-13.

Joseph Kolb, a researcher who has extensively studied the gang, said the Trump administration has made some progress in uprooting transnational criminal organizations. The remaining 198 were foreign nationals, of which only five were legally allowed to be in the U.S. Sixty-four of them illegally crossed the border as unaccompanied alien children, the press release claimed. An estimated 10,000 members live in the United States, according to the Justice Department.

- There is a major crackdown on gang activity around the country and it is all thanks to Operation Raging Bull.

'These 267 arrests are the next step toward making this country safer by taking MS-13 off of our streets for good, ' Sessions said. The investigation focused on the gang's Stoners Locos clique, which had generated $1.9 million in illicit revenue since 2015 through crimes such as extortion, robbery, vehicle theft, money laundering, assault, and homicide, according to ICE.
