This is the beginning of Michael E. Miller’s article for the Washington Post. The avidly Trump-hating, illegal immigrant-friendly Washington Post:
The old minivan appeared near the school on a Tuesday morning, its Illinois plates the only thing out of place in the blue-collar suburbs of central Long Island. But as backpack-toting teenagers passed by on their way to Brentwood High, the van’s doors suddenly swung open.
Out sprang members of the violent street gang MS-13, armed with baseball bats.
They attacked three 16-year-old students they suspected of being rivals before driving off. When police spotted the van in the same neighborhood the following afternoon and surrounded it at gunpoint, the MS-13 members were in the midst of trying to abduct a fourth.
“We were going to take him somewhere private and beat him to death,” said Miguel Rivera, 20, according to a Suffolk County indictment.
The Dec. 6 arrests of Rivera and four others thwarted what police say would have been the sixth murder of a Brentwood High School student by MS-13 in less than two years.
But the incident also shook the school for another reason.
All but one of those arrested attended Brentwood, according to Suffolk County police. Three were unaccompanied minors who had been caught at the border and then placed in the community by a federal refugee program.
From New York to Virginia to Texas, schools in areas racked by MS-13 violence are now struggling with a sobering question. What to do when the gang isn’t just in your community, but in your classrooms?
For the past year, the Trump administration has waged a nationwide crackdown on MS-13. Nowhere has this effort been more intense than in Suffolk County, where police say the gang has committed 27 murders since a surge of unaccompanied minors began arriving in 2013.
Did you read that? Did you use the link I’ve provided and read the entire story?
Now consider this: if the Washington Post is sufficiently concerned to have published this article – which makes President Trump out to be so correct in his assessment – how bad is this situation? How much worse is it than what the Post might publish if it made somebody the paper actually had a bit of regard for look good?
Now: when do the rest of mainstream media take this with even a fraction of the seriousness it deserves?
Or is protecting the “rights” of illegal aliens more important than protecting the safety- the lives – of legals?
If your answer to the above question is yes, I suggest you continue to support wholesale illegal immigration and “sanctuary” cities and states. Look at how well it is working out for your point of view.
