For Trump, the night is dark and full of gangs

For Trump, the night is dark and full of gangs

Members of the immigrant and Latino communities will be protesting a speech by President Donald Trump on a visit to Long Island on Friday.

Speaking Friday before an audience of law enforcement officers at Suffolk County Community College, Trump blamed past administrations for failing to enforce immigration laws.

"I was reading one of these animals was caught and [was] explaining they like to knife them and cut them and let them die slowly because that way it's more painful".

Trump said he was focused on the gang because of its gruesome tactics, saying members don't like to shoot their victims because it kills them too quickly.

"You guys, you put somebody in the auto you're protecting their head, you know.the way you put your hand, like, don't hit their head and they've just killed somebody.I said you can take the hand away, OK?"

Trump's comments drew laughter and applause from numerous officers standing behind him on stage. "And we are committed to coming together to support youth and families harmed by violence, especially immigrant families, who have been the majority of the victims and survivors of this violence". He said the Republican president was "throwing meat to a red base".

While Trump has blamed former President Barack Obama for not implementing tighter immigration regulations, which Trump has suggested has led to the rise of gangs like MS-13, he recently praised Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the "new steps" he has taken to dismantle the group.

Trump is expected to address drugs and gang violence at the Suffolk Police Academy in Brentwood, which has been the center of MS-13 gang violence.

In April, three teenagers and a 20-year-old man were massacred in a park in Central Islip.

Federal authorities have announced the arrests of hundreds of suspected MS-13 gang members in recent months, but that claim of getting rid of MS-13 members "by the thousands" may be an exaggeration.

The White House confirmed the president's plans on Tuesday but did not elaborate.

In his speech, Trump made a link between what he sees as lax immigration enforcement and the rise of gang-related crime.
