It’s a shocking attack on America’s law enforcement – a direct threat against the brave men and women who keep all of us safe.
Yet the left-wing media WON’T talk about it!
A criminal gang of illegal immigrants has just put out a “hit” on cops.
MS-13, one of the gangs President Donald Trump has been trying to battle despite leftist policies that protect these monsters, issued the chilling challenge earlier this month in the peaceful Long Island suburbs in New York.
“The police have been making too many arrests and it’s time to take the streets back and take out a cop like we do in El Salvador,” the gang announced to its members, according to an informant who went to the police, the New York Daily News reported.
The gang said ANY member had “permission” to murder a cop on sight.
While officers all over the region are now on high alert, the warning seemed to specifically target Hempstead, a Long Island community where a crackdown on MS-13 has had the gang on the run.
Brave police won’t let the threat stop the crackdown.
“If MS-13 wants to threaten a cop in this county, MS-13 is gonna get an answer,” Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder said, according to Newsday. “We will answer that threat and answer it strongly.”
They’ve sent MORE cops out to catch gang members – and specifically thanked the administration of President Donald Trump.
“We got great support from Homeland Security,” Ryder told News12 Long Island.
Police are also offering cash rewards for anyone who turns in someone threatening to kill a cop in Nassau and Suffolk counties, both on Long Island.
While the gang has been active around the nation, Long Island in particular has been rocked by MS-13 violence.

In one horrific incident in December – just weeks before Christmas – five gang members were arrested near Brentwood High School, which has been overrun by members of the criminal organization.
In what was no doubt intended to send a “turf” message to the school, the gang members arrived in a minivan – as so many students do – then jumped out with bats and beat three teens.
Then, nearby, they tried to abduct a fourth.
“We were going to take him somewhere private and beat him to death,” 20-year-old Miguel Rivera said according to the indictment.

Three of those arrested were there not in spite of the federal government’s immigration policies… but BECAUSE of them. They were caught at the border as unaccompanied minors and then sent to Long Island as “refugees,” according to the Washington Post.
Now, at least five students at that one school have been murdered in 2 years, among 27 killings attributed to the gang in once-quiet Suffolk County over the past four years.
Trump himself invited victims of the violence and their family members to his State of the Union speech to put a national spotlight on the problem and highlight the importance of cracking down on illegals engaged in violent behavior.
“I want you to know that 320 million hearts are right now breaking for you,” he told them. “We love you.”
But as Trump noted, enforcement has been made increasingly difficult by leftist “sanctuary city” policies and what he called “deadly loopholes” being exploited by criminals and their supporters.
Those policies and lax immigration enforcement have had a devastating effect on communities.
During a visit to Long Island last year, Trump said MS-13 has “transformed peaceful parks and beautiful quiet neighborhoods into bloodstained killing fields.”
“They’re animals,” Trump said. “We cannot tolerate as a society the spilling of innocent, young, wonderful, vibrant people.”
