    MS-13 And Illegal Immigration Crime Impact on Long Island

    MS-13 is turning Long Island into a homicide hotbed

    By Marisa Schultz

    WASHINGTON — The MS-13 gang is linked to a startling 38 percent of all the homicides in normally placid Suffolk County over the last 16 months, its besieged police chief told a startled Senate panel Wednesday.

    Since Jan. 1, 2016, 17 of 45 murders in the county have been connected to the brutal gang, testified Police Commissioner Timothy Sini.

    He said MS-13 engages in selling drugs, stealing and extortion, but unlike other gangs, the primary motivation isn’t to make money but to terrorize the community.

    “MS-13 often engages in violence for the sake of violence,” Sini told the Senate Homeland Security Committee, “to increase notoriety of the gang and to cause communities to fear the gang and its members.”

    He said the gang has about 400 members in the county; the average age of those arrested is 18 and the most common crime is assault with its “signature” weapon — the machete.

    The commissioner’s testimony alarmed committee chairman Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.).

    “This is surprising — their main purpose is just to exist, to be an entity and to have people be loyal to them and the loyalty extends to macheteing people to death,” Johnson said.

    While overall crime in Suffolk County is down to “historic” lows, there has been a recent uptick in MS-13 gang activity, Sini said.

    In all, there have been 27 murders in Suffolk County since 2013 attributed to the gang.

    Among the most recent victims were best friends Kayla Cuevas, 16, and Nisa Mickens, 15, who were targeted after having a schoolyard argument with a gang member, Sini said.

    President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have made stamping out MS-13 a priority.

    The gang recruits from young immigrants crossing the border illegally as unaccompanied minors who end up in Suffolk County.

    Sini said there were 4,624 unaccompanied minors placed in the county since 2013.

    He called for better screening of unaccompanied minors and their sponsors, as well as routine monitoring in the community to cut down on gang recruitment.

    The commissioner also asked Congress to increase the number of federal prosecutors in the area so gang members could be charged under the federal RICO organized crime statute.

    The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on United States Taxpayers

    Matt O'Brien and Spencer Raley
    September 27, 2017

    A continually growing population of illegal aliens, along with the federal government’s ineffective efforts to secure our borders, present significant national security and public safety threats to the United States. They also have a severely negative impact on the nation’s taxpayers at the local, state, and national levels. Illegal immigration costs Americans billions of dollars each year. Illegal aliens are net consumers of taxpayer-funded services and the limited taxes paid by some segments of the illegal alien population are, in no way, significant enough to offset the growing financial burdens imposed on U.S. taxpayers by massive numbers of uninvited guests. This study examines the fiscal impact of illegal aliens as reflected in both federal and state budgets.

    At the federal, state, and local levels, taxpayers shell out approximately $134.9 billion to cover the costs incurred by the presence of more than 12.5 million illegal aliens, and about 4.2 million citizen children of illegal aliens. That amounts to a tax burden of approximately $8,075 per illegal alien family member and a total of $115,894,597,664. The total cost of illegal immigration to U.S. taxpayers is both staggering and crippling. In 2013, FAIR estimated the total cost to be approximately $113 billion. So, in under four years, the cost has risen nearly $3 billion. This is a disturbing and unsustainable trend. The sections below will break down and further explain these numbers at the federal, state, and local levels.

    And meanwhile the f*cking democrats sat on their hands. Democrats are the worst pieces of sh*t I've ever seen. I truly hope their actions arrange for their own slaughter in mid term elections. That would be the american people paying the democrats back for their stupidity, rhetoric, and unwillingness to work with Republicans.

    Massapequa man charged in Binghamton killing, authorities say

    A Massapequa man attending Binghamton University is facing a murder charge in the stabbing death of another student, authorities said, the second deadly altercation on the upstate campus in a month involving a student from Long Island.

    Michael M. Roque, 20, was arrested late Monday night and charged in connection with the fatal stabbing Sunday of Joao Souza, 19, a freshmen engineering student.

    Reached by telephone, Roque’s oldest brother among his six siblings said the family is stunned by the allegations.

    “He’s the nicest one of the family,” said Julio Roque, 22, of Massapequa. “He’s the one who makes everyone happy.” Roque said. “I never thought he had this in him.”

    ICE: 225 arrested on LI, in NYC, Hudson Valley on immigration violations

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said they arrested 21 people in Suffolk and 16 in Nassau over a six-day period that ended April 14.

    Federal agents arrested 225 immigrants on Long Island and in New York City and the Hudson Valley over six days for violating U.S. immigration laws, officials said Tuesday.

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said they arrested 21 people in Suffolk County and 16 in Nassau County over the period that ended Saturday.

    Of the 225 arrested, more than 180 were convicted criminals or had criminal charges pending. Also of the 225, more than 80 had been issued a final order of removal and failed to depart the United States, or had been previously removed and returned illegally, ICE said in a news release Tuesday.

    “ICE continues to face significant obstacles with policies created by local officials which hinder cooperation between ICE and local law enforcement,” Thomas R. Decker, field office director for ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations in New York, said in the news release. “Yet, with the tireless efforts of the men and women of ICE, this operation was a great success.”

    Several of those arrested had felony convictions for child sex crimes, weapons charges and assault, officials said. Others had past convictions for significant or multiple misdemeanors.

    The arrests lead to detention and deportation proceedings for all those arrested, with federal prosecution in some cases.

    Walter Barrientos, Long Island organizer for the immigrant-advocacy group Make The Road New York in Brentwood, said his organization had been noticing increased arrests in the area in recent weeks.

    “We continue to see clearly how this administration is committed to painting immigrants as criminals and excusing very inhumane practices,” Barrientos said. “When you look below the surface, as we are seeing with so many youth here on Long Island, they are getting charged as gang members with faulty evidence and sometimes no evidence at all other than somebody giving their name.”
