    EL PASO, Texas - U.S. Border Patrol Agents in the El Paso sector arrested two MS-13 gang members this week. Early Sunday morning, Border Patrol agents working at the Texas Highway 62/180 checkpoint in between El Paso and Carlsbad began tracking a group of nine subjects attempting to walk around the checkpoint.

The people in the group admitted to entering the U.S. illegally ... one of the men in the group as 25-year-old William Amaya-Ortiz, an active member of the Mara Salvatrucha...

    Seven months into the current fiscal year, U.S. Border Patrol agents already have arrested nearly as many suspected MS-13 gang members as in all of fiscal year 2017, according to the latest available government data. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data indicate that federal agents apprehended 227 illegal immigrants suspected of being members of the notoriously violent gang, compared with 228 arrests in the 12-month period ending September 30. Based on the monthly average through April, the Border Patrol is on track to apprehend 389 gang members by the end of this September, the most since agents arrested...

    President Trump’s threat to pull ICE and the Border Patrol out of California hasn’t been enacted (yet) so immigration enforcement activities are still taking place. Following the big sweep in the Los Angeles area, individual investigations are still being handled and CBS San Francisco brings us another of the heartbreaking tales of a family being separated by the evil forces of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. This is a particularly curious bit of coverage given how these stories normally go, and we’ll get to why that is in a moment. It starts out as so many of these tales do, with...

    After the State of the Union speech, Ed brought up the President’s reference to victims of MS-13, one of the larger and certainly most bloody gangs in the country. (They’re estimated to have more than 10K members in the U.S. and unknown numbers in other countries.) In predictable fashion, some of Trump’s critics immediately felt the need to disparage the choice, insinuating that the attention given the gang was only meant to gin up hostility toward Latino immigrants. Few, however, were quicker off the mark than MSNBC’s Joy Reid, who took to Twitter during the address to make that point....

    It has been documented that the “Osmanen Germania” (“Ottomans from Germany”) is the armed gang of the Erdoğan regime in Germany. The financer of the gang is AKP MP Metin Külünk, who has ordered the gang to engage in armed attacks against Kurds. The “Osmanen Germania” (“Ottomans from Germany”) gang was organized in 2014 under the guise of a boxing club, and has been on the agenda in Germany for a while. The gang is infamous for arms smuggling, human trafficking, drugs and attacks on Kurds and has grown fast, increasing membership and branch numbers. It has since come to...

    Radio Legendary ^ | 11/2/2017
    The issue that has torn this city’s public safety services in two once again figured in a major felony case. Disclosure of confidential informants is so repugnant to police and fire department officials they will sacrifice entire blocks of prosecution in order to preserve the sacrosanct status of snitches. The policy is so ingrained it has caused a complete shakeup in the structure of upper leadership – the replacement of the Chiefs of Police and Fire Departments – and the ouster of seasoned investigators who won’t budge on the issue, one way or the other. All that bitter history came...

    A biker with a "big yellow helmet" who appeared to be in charge pulled out a "long, 'Dirty Harry'-type pistol" and fired the first shot in the May 2015 Twin Peaks biker brawl, a former Twin Peaks employee testified Tuesday. While testimony thus far has not revealed who was wearing the "big yellow helmet," previous video and photographic evidence presented by the state show Jacob Carrizal leading a band of Bandidos into Twin Peaks while riding a shiny blue motorcycle and wearing a yellow helmet. Also, a CNN special on the one-year anniversary of the shootout featured an interview with...

Kirschten, 23, was shot and killed Aug. 17 as she sat in her car waiting on a red light at Fortification and State streets, according to police. The gunman said nothing when he walked up to the driver’s side closed window of Kirschten’s white Pontiac G6 and shot her in the back, police said. A passenger in Kirschten’s car told police that the gunman, who was wearing dark clothing, didn’t take anything after the shooting and walked away, investigators said.

    The Trump administration has concluded a six-week nationwide sweep of suspected gang members with 1,378 arrests — the largest such gang sweep conducted by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) to date. The operation, which ran from March 26 through May 6, targeted gang members and associates involved in transnational criminal activity, including drug trafficking, weapons smuggling, human smuggling, sex trafficking, murder and racketeering. “Gangs threaten the safety of our communities, not just in major metropolitan areas, but in our suburbs and rural areas, too,” ICE Acting Director Thomas Homan said Thursday. “Gang-related violence and criminal...

    As President Trump makes headway in eliminating ISIS, another brutal gang called MS-13 has raised its ugly head in the “sanctuary cities” of America. These cities will hide these gangs and offer them a refuge. A refuge from what? Among other things, American law enforcement, President Trump, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions and Trump have made a promise to the American people they will be safe from this Gang’s takeover of American neighborhoods. Whether the neighborhood is a small town, a city, or a rural area, this El Salvadorian gang helps themselves in preying upon American citizens. They are...

    CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y.—The air was thick with equal parts of hope and frustration at a community meeting in Central Islip on April 18, just a few blocks from where four young men were found murdered less than a week prior. Politicians, law enforcement, and hundreds of citizens turned out to voice their fears and concerns. Rep. Peter King (R–N.Y.) spoke of the MS-13 gang, which police say is suspected to be behind the murders. “MS-13 has to be crushed, it has to be defeated, it has to be destroyed,” King said. He was echoing the sentiment coming from the top...

    (THE HILL - Barf Alert) Attorney General Jeff Sessions says the MS-13 gang could be designated as a terrorist organization. Asked by Fox News's Tucker Carlson on Tuesday whether he thinks the designation would be helpful, Sessions replied, “I think so, perhaps. I believe it could qualify for that." ADVERTISEMENT "There are rules that I guess the State Department does to establish that," he added. El Salvador's government has already designated MS-13 a terrorist group. Sessions called the gang "one of the most violent gangs in the history of our country." “We can devastate this gang. We’re going after them,"...

Christopher Jacob Carrizal, a member of the Bandidos motorcycle group, was set to be the first biker tried in the May 17, 2015, Twin Peaks shootout that left nine bikers dead and dozens wounded. Strother initially...
