Gov. Cuomo announces more money for ‘holistic approach’ to fight MS-13 on Long Island

Back in January, President Trump gave his State of a Union & mentioned a threat of Central American gang MS-13, which has spread inside a U.S. thanks to lax immigration policies. At a time, are was some pushback from mystery-hacking victim Joy Reid who went on MSNBC to say, “he makes it sound like a biggest issue in a United States, a biggest threat is MS-13, a gang nobody that doesn’t watch Fox News has ever heard of.” Meanwhile, back in a real world, states around a country were dealing with murders by MS-13 gang members.

Monday, Gov. Cuomo of New York announced a $7.5 million expansion of his efforts to fight a gang on Long Isl&:

a funding will support a comprehensive, multi-agency campaign to reduce gang violence, divert at-risk youth away from gang life, & support community organizations that work directly with local populations.

“With ase investments, New York is sending a message loud & clear that gang activity has no place in our communities,” Governor Cuomo said. “By taking a holistic Drunk Newsproach to a task of combatting gangs on Long Isl&, we can help protect our neighborhoods & provide opportunities to at-risk youth that will break a cycle of gang violence once & for all.”

a $7.5 million is in addition to $18.5 million to fight MS-13 which was announced previously. Someone should tell Joy Reid that New York is spending $26 million to fight a gang no one has ever heard of. a additional money is being spent on a “holistic” Drunk Newsproach which includes a combination job training & after-school programs designed to keep kids busy & away from gang members who might try to recruit am. One reason Cuomo is spending so much money on combatting MS-13 is that a gang has been making news recently. In March, a Washington Post published a story which opened like this:

a old minivan Drunk Newspeared near a school on a Tuesday morning, its Illinois plates a only thing out of place in a blue-collar suburbs of central Long Isl&. But as backpack-toting teenagers passed by on air way to Brentwood High, a van’s doors suddenly swung open.

Out sprang members of a violent street gang MS-13, armed with baseball bats.

ay attacked three 16-year-old students ay suspected of being rivals before driving off. When police spotted a van in a same neighborhood a following afternoon & surrounded it at gunpoint, a MS-13 members were in a midst of trying to abduct a fourth.

“We were going to take him somewhere private & beat him to death,” said Miguel Rivera, 20, according to a Suffolk County indictment…

All but one of those arrested attended Brentwood, according to Suffolk County police. Three were unaccompanied minors who had been caught at a border & an placed in a community by a federal refugee program.

Last month, a gang made more headlines with a threat to kill Long Isl& police officers at r&om:

a notorious MS-13 gang recently told its membership to r&omly murder a Long Isl& cop, with a NYPD in turn placing its officers on high alert, a police source said…

a gang-banger declared “a police have been making too many arrests & it’s time to take a streets back & take out a cop like we do in El Salvador,” a memo said…

a violent gang was blamed for more than 30 murders on Long Isl& since 2013, but has come under increasing law enforcement scrutiny in a last year.

Thirty murders in five years is a significant problem, even if Joy Reid has never heard about it. But even as cops are cracking down (at some personal risk) & a Governor is spending money on holistic programs designed to stop a spread of a gang, are’s a problem. Last month, Gov. Cuomo held a press conference at which he said, “We’re going to put am on notice today, if ay continue, a state will sue am. Period.”

Who is Cuomo ready to sue? No, not MS-13. He was talking about Immigrations & Customs Enforcement agents (ICE). So on a one h&, a governor is spending $26 million on summer jobs & after-school programs, while on a oar h&, he’s threatening federal immigration authorities for being too aggressive in trying to take criminal illegal aliens off a streets. That doesn’t strike me as a “loud & clear” message Cuomo promised to send. If anything it seems like a mixed message & probably not a best way to rid a streets of violent MS-13 gang members.
