Jeff Sessions Visits El Salvador To Talk About Anti-gang Activity

In furthering the White House’s tough on crime agenda, Attorney General Jeff Sessions made a trip to El Salvador to meet with his Latin American counterparts to discuss strategies for tackling the gang problem and immigration enforcement measures.

On Friday Sessions will meet the attorney generals of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. Sessions will also meet with other top law enforcement officials about a “transnational anti-gang task force.”

Sessions will also visit a detention center and meet former MS-13 members.

MS-13 has been a focal point of the White House’s agenda.

MS-13 is a international criminal gang that started in Los Angeles in the 80’s. Their crimes include drug trafficking, human smuggling, prostitution and murder. They were also seen meeting with a top Al-Qaeda official in 2004.
