US President Donald Trump said that the «historic operation» aimed at arresting and indicting MS-13 international gang members ended successfully, Washington DC, Wednesday.
«We've just concluded a historic operation leading to the arrest and indictment of dozens of savage MS-13 members and leaders all across the country,» said Trump.
«More than 20 of the criminals we indicted and arrested in the past seven days were illegal aliens. Yesterday, for the first time ever, the Eastern District of Virginia, thank you very much, indicted MS-13 leaders on charges of terrorism. So we have the MS-13 leader on charges of terrorism. And that's a first. Is that correct? Yes. We're using terrorism, which gives us extra strength,» he stressed.
Trump also added that his administration's goal is to bring to justice every member of MS-13.
