The United States’ Attorney General Jeff Sessions is going to El Salvador on Thursday, the Associated Press reports on July 27. Sessions would meet his Salvadoran counterpart, Attorney General Douglas Melendez before a meeting with transnational task force to tackle gangs, especially MS-13.
Sessions would visit detention center and would talk with former members of this infamous street gang, known for its brutality. Sessions called MS-13 or Mara Salvatrucha a top treat for the public safety in the U.S., the AP reports.
The gang recruits from middle and high-school students in immigrant communities internationally, but mostly in the U.S.’ states. Members of MS-13, says the AP, “have been accused,” for massacre of four young men in New York.
All that brought the attention of Congress members and the U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration. Recently, media in the United States, including the AP reported about shaken relation between Trump and Sessions and possibilities for new attorney general.
