Following up on the pledge of Attorney General Jeff Sessions to wage war on the sadistic and murdering street gang MS-13 50 raids were conducted by federal agents in the Los Angeles area. These resulted in dozens of suspected gang members being arrested. Specifically targeted were gang leaders. Los Angeles is the home base of MS-13 in the United States. Part of the reason may be because almost half of those arrested were illegals from countries like El Salvador and Honduras and since Los Angeles is a sanctuary city they felt safer. More such raids are promised by the federal authorities.
