The leader of a New York police union is sounding the alarm on the violent street gang MS-13; saying local departments need at least ’60 new detectives’ to deal with the growing threat against officers and citizens.

“The startling claim was made Sunday by James McDermott, president of the Nassau Police Benevolent Association, who called out a ‘new normal’ of gang violence in the area,” reports Fox News.

“The comments came after police unearthed a badly decomposed body Saturday in a shallow grave at a popular nature preserve in Massapequa, Long Island, a suburb about an hour from Manhattan. The investigation is ongoing, but police believe the victim is one of 11 killed by MS-13 in 2016,” adds the article.

“Our gang unit is undermanned and not provided with the necessary resources to deal with this threat,” said McDermott.

President Trump toured Long Island last year highlighting the growing threat of MS-13 across the New York Metropolitan Area.

A convicted killer who was previously deported by US authorities was arrested again on New York’s Long Island earlier this month; raising serious questions over safety and security along the US-Mexico border and across the country.

“A man who admitted to being part of the MS-13 street gang — and who’d been deported after killing a man on New York‘s Long Island — was arrested again Tuesday in the town where he committed the slaying after illegally re-entering the country,” reports Fox News.

“The 40-year-old, who still has MS-13 tattoos on his chest and stomach, was deported in October 2017 after being convicted of manslaughter and serving time in state prison in connection with a fatal stabbing in May 2000 outside a deli in Huntington,” adds the article.

The arrest comes weeks after President Trump declared a “national emergency” along the US-Mexico border; effectively bypassing Congress to secure funding for his long-promised border wall.
