Sessions expands program to combat crime on tribal lands

President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions both spent Tuesday morning targeting the street gang MS-13.

"Under President Trump, the Justice Department has zero tolerance for gang violence", Sessions told a meeting with federal law enforcement officials to discuss ways to combat organized crime.

Earlier this month, attorney general Jeff Sessions-David the Gnome's racist cousin-commenced a review of "consent decrees", agreements between the federal government and local police forces to address issues of systemic racism and other prejudices.

The Gang Intelligence Center said MS-13's members are rising in the United States.

Sessions spoke to Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight" hours after President Trump blamed what he called "the weak illegal immigration polices" of the Obama administration for allowing MS-13 to spread to cities across the U.S.

MS-13 - or the Mara Salvatrucha - traces its origins to Los Angeles, where thousands fleeing El Salvador's bloody civil war in the 1980s arrived, to protect the immigrants from Mexican and African-American gangs.

A 2011 USA circuit court ruling which said that the act only applied to sports betting created a legal loophole which allowed individual states to legalise online gaming within their boundaries.

Now, with the establishment of the Cannabis Caucus and the introduction of the Ending Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017, we must make every member of Congress feel the same pressure. "We will secure our border, expand immigration enforcement and choke off supply lines", said Sessions. "It was just tough to find out anything about them", Trottier said.

The broader mission is focused on strengthening relationships with reservations across the country.

"Law enforcement in Indian Country faces unique practical and jurisdictional challenges", Sessions said in a statement, "and the Department of Justice is committed to working with them to provide greater access to technology, information and necessary enforcement".

"My own view is there has to be some correlation between lax immigration policies and replenishment of the gangs in places where they already existed", he said.
