"For many years, they exploited America's weak borders and immigration enforcement", Trump said.

He said these Long Island police officers "will liberate their towns".

Today's audience will mostly be FBI, Homeland Security and law enforcement personnel.

The speech was laced with violent imagery, with Trump saying MS-13 has rendered the suburb into "blood-stained killing fields".

"Together we're going to restore safety to our streets and peace to our communities and we're going to destroy the vile, criminal cartel MS-13 and many other gangs", Trump said while flanked by local and state police.

On Thursday, two of the gang's reputed members were arrested in Hempstead for a killing in May in Flushing, Queens.

Pro-Trump demonstrators said the president is addressing an issue important to people on Long Island.

Trump continued: "You know I said from the beginning, let Obamacare implode and then do it".

"We are really afraid he is using this forum to be the billboard as to why anti-immigrant sentiment should exist in this country". "On the contrary, undocumented immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than the native-born population, and that gap continues to widen each year".

Immigration agents plan to target teenagers who are suspected gang members, even if they are not charged with any crime, according to a memo seen by Reuters.

In the years since, it has continued to grow and spread to the USA, where it is active among communities of Central Americans. It's an opportunity for him to brag (with some basis in reality) about how much he's accomplished as president, since his administration really has been able to make strides in expanding enforcement.

Homan stressed how important the collaboration and support of local partnerships, particularly local law enforcement, is in terms of efforts to proliferate gangs like MS-13. It traditionally resorts to theft, human trafficking, sex trafficking, selling drugs and extortion for financing, as previously reported by FOX Business.

Gang recruits are often middle- and high-school students predominantly in immigrant communities with roots in El Salvador, law enforcement officials have said.

The group has caused enough problems in Long Island that Trump took a trip to address police about the situation.

POTUS is traveling to Long Island today to talk about the fight against MS-13, and the Attorney General himself is now in El Salvador, addressing the problem at its core. Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) told FOX Business the administration has been coordinating with officials in the Central American country in order to combat the threat across multiple fronts. "The president is here for a certain reason: MS-13".
