Trump Sending So Many Gang Members Back to El Salvador That Officials There Now in a Panic
At The Daily Wire by Joseph Curl
The Trump administration is sending violent gang members back to their home countries in droves -- so many that one country is dreading what's to come.
El Salvador authorities are holding emergency meetings and trying to come up with new laws to keep track of all the criminals being deported from the U.S., The Washington Post reports:
This year the U.S. government has deported 398 gang members to this country, compared with 534 in all of 2016, according to Salvadoran government statistics. This sharp increase in the rate of gang deportations — and the prospect of more gang roundups in the United States — has prompted Salvadoran authorities to hold emergency meetings and propose new legislation to monitor suspected criminals who are being sent home.
