Processional MSM tool Joy Reid seems to think that the only people who have heard of MS-13, the notorious GANG, are viewers of Fox News and I guess that makes them not a big threat?
It’s in response to President Trump’s State of the Union address where he mentioned the gang by name, saying: “Two precious girls were brutally murdered while walking together in their hometown,” Trump said. “Four men associated with MS-13 have been charged with the killings… I am calling on the Congress to finally close the deadly loopholes that have allowed MS-13, and other criminals, to break into our country.”
Reid decided to attempt a rebuttal to this: “He gives a speech tonight, in which he makes it sound like the biggest issue in the United States, the biggest threat is MS-13, a gang nobody that doesn’t watch Fox News has ever heard of. So he makes it sound like they’re the biggest threat.”
As reported by Fox News:
Well, it turns out Reid needs to consume more news.
A search of “MS-13” on CNN’s website reveals dozens of articles that mention the gang. The gang has been mentioned in an assortment of New York Times headlines in recent memory, such as a June 2017 article titled, “39 members of MS-13 are arrested, authorities say,” and a July 2017 article headlined, “Trump will visit Long Island in the wake of MS-13 gang arrests.”
If the Times is too high-brow for the MSNBC star, USA Today has also covered the gang extensively. A video on the site from Nov. 2017 is headlined, “MS-13 gang member arrested in Maryland murder.”
USA Today even covered the gang back in 2012 when the Obama-era feds decided to label MS-13 a criminal group.
“This designation allows us to strike at the financial heart of MS-13 and is a powerful weapon in our fight to dismantle one of the most violent, transnational criminal organizations operating today,” then-ICE Director John Morton told the paper.
