President Donald Trump has kept a campaign promise and made it clear that he is willing to do what it takes to rid the United States of the barbaric and murderous MS-13, who former President Barack Obama and his Democrat administration has allowed to run wild, refusing to deport or punish for extremely violent crimes.
Tuesday, the Trump administration announced that they reached all the way into El Salvador to find an MS-13 gang member for a murder in New York.
According to a DOJ press release:
José Jonathan Guevara-Castro, also known as “Suspechoso” (“Guevara-Castro”), an alleged member of the violent transnational criminal organization La Mara Salvatrucha, also known as the “MS-13,” and a fugitive from justice, was arrested on August 13, 2020 in Acajutla, Sonsonate, El Salvador.”
The crime happened four years ago, however, Trump has said that he is taking the crimes committed by MS13 very seriously.
“Guevara’s arrest more than 2,000 miles away from Long Island where he allegedly participated in the brutal murder of a young man more than four years ago, is a testament to the commitment of this Office and our law enforcement partners to bringing members of the MS-13 gang to justice for their crimes,” stated Acting United States Attorney DuCharme.
“There is no place to hide, here or abroad, and neither distance nor the passage of time will offer any safe harbor to criminals from our mission to eradicate violent gangs from the Eastern District of New York.”

Trump called MS-13 “animals” and caused controversy with his opponents who try to discredit everything he does.
“We are going to destroy the vile gangs, like MS-13. I was reading a report on how they enjoy killing people and watching them die. These people are animals,” Trump said.
Radical far-left Democrat Speaker of the US House, Nancy Pelosi, defended MS13 defending them against being called “animals” by Trump.
