President Trump’s pledge to wipe out the notoriously violent MS-13 gang is gaining traction — at least in the Empire State.
Federal officials have rounded up close to 40 accused members of MS-13 in New York City and Long Island in the 30 days following vows by Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to crack down on the gang, known for terrorizing immigrant communities.
Of the 45 New York-area gang arrests over the last month by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Homeland Security, 39 were affiliated with MS-13, which has been blamed for a string of recent murders in normally placid Long Island, the feds said.
Those who are not charged with crimes will be processed for deportation, the feds said.
ICE and HSIA announced the arrests Wednesday as part of a newly formed operation aimed at combating MS-13 in New York and Long Island.
The agencies formed “Operation Matador” last month — together with the NYPD, the Suffolk County Police Department and the Nassau County Police Department — following a high-profile visit by Sessions to Long Island to address the suburban enclave’s growing concerns about MS-13 violence.
Treasury Department officials labeled MS-13 a “transnational criminal organization” in 2012, noting that its members have been involved in drug trafficking, kidnapping, human smuggling, murder and sex trafficking in the US and several other countries.
Like the Italian Mafia, MS-13 members follow a strict code of conduct, including beating in increments of 13 seconds for members who break the rules and a “green light” to kill, on sight, any government cooperators.

This vote only requires you to forward it to someone else for it to be counted.''YES" OR "NO"As many of you are aware, the Knights of Columbus submitted congress that the words "Under God" should be addedTo our pledge of allegiance.Both Houses of Congress passed the law and it was signed by President Eisenhower in 1954.The information below was based on a poll taken by NBC on what percentage should keep the words in our pledge versus The percent who want it removed.If you read this and agree that "under God" should be left in the pledge, then just forward it to others and you have voted for it To be left in.If you delete it and don't forward it you are voting NO to "under God."Easy, huh?"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, Indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."Shock to NBCThis is not sent for discussion.If you agree, forward it, If you don't, delete it.I don't want to know one way or the other.By my forwarding it, you know how I feel.86% to keep God in the Pledge of Allegiance and 14% against.That is a pretty commanding' public response.I was asked to send this on, if I agreed or delete if I didn't.Now it is your turn.It is said that 86% of Americans believe the word God should stay.Therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a mess about having God in the Pledge of AllegianceWhy should our Nation cater to 14% ?If you agree, pass this on.If not, simply delete.
