Trump: "We Will Find You, We Will Arrest You, We Will Jail You, and We Will Deport You"

by MELANIE HUNTER ARTER July 30, 2017

In a speech in Long Island, N.Y., President Donald Trump declared that U.S. authorities will find, arrest, jail and deport every gang member and criminal alien who are threatening the community.

"But I have a simple message today for every gang member and criminal alien that are threatening so violently our people:  We will find you, we will arrest you, we will jail you, and we will deport you," he said.

In a speech that centered on the administration's efforts to crackdown on the gang MS-13, the president pledged to "restore safety to our streets and peace to our communities" and "destroy the vile criminal cartel, MS-13 and many other gangs."

"MS-13 is particularly violent," he said. "They don't like shooting people because it's too quick, it's too fast.  I was reading -- one of these animals was caught -- in explaining, they like to knife them and cut them, and let them die slowly because that way it's more painful, and they enjoy watching that much more. These are animals."

Trump pointed out that he was the one to call attention to the problem of illegal immigration when he first announced his presidential run.

"And if you remember just a little more than two years ago, when I came down the escalator with Melania, and I made the speech -- people coming into this country. Everyone said, what does he know? What's he talking about? And there was bedlam. Remember bedlam?" he said.

"And then about two months later, they said, you know, he's right. So I'm honored to have brought it to everybody's attention, but the suffering and the pain that we were going through -- and now you can look at the numbers -- it's a whole different world," the president said.

He blamed the rise of MS-13 on the "weak political leadership" of the Obama administration and sanctuary cities.

"For many years, they exploited America's weak borders and lax immigration enforcement to bring drugs and violence to cities and towns all across America. They're there right now because of weak political leadership, weak leadership, weak policing, and in many cases because the police weren't allowed to do their job," Trump said.

"I've met police that are great police that aren't allowed to do their job because they have a pathetic mayor or a mayor doesn't know what's going on," he said.

"And MS-13, the cartel, has spread gruesome bloodshed throughout the United States. We've gotten a lot of them out of here. Big, big percentage, but the rest are coming -- they'll be out of here quickly, right?" he said.

"Few communities have suffered worse at the hands of these MS-13 thugs than the people of Long Island. Hard to believe. I grew up on Long Island. I didn't know about this. I didn't know about this, and then all of a sudden, this is like a new phenomenon," the president said.  

"Since January ‘16 -- think of this -- MS-13 gang members have brutally murdered 17 beautiful, young lives in this area on Long Island alone. Think of it. They butcher those little girls. They kidnap, they extort, they rape and they rob. They prey on children.They shouldn't be here," Trump said.

"They stomp on their victims. They beat them with clubs. They slash them with machetes, and they stab them with knives. They have transformed peaceful parks and beautiful, quiet neighborhoods into bloodstained killing fields. They're animals," the president added.

"We cannot tolerate as a society the spilling of innocent, young, wonderful, vibrant people -- sons and daughters, even husbands and wives. We cannot accept this violence one day more. Can't do it, and we're not going to do it, because of you, we're not going to be able to do it.  You're not going to allow it to happen, and we're backing you up 100 percent," he said.
