At this time, we aren’t sure what lit a fire under Attorney General Jeff Sessions but It looks like he just woke up from his nap and decided to do his job- for once. At least for now. Sessions just announced that he is implementing a new task force that will target three of the most dangerous cartels that have plagued American citizens.
Not surprisingly, these are the same gangs that President Trump has harped about since taking office but the mainstream media and liberals defend. Because, if Trump supports it, it must be bad, right?
If Sessions follows through with his plans to roll out this new task force it could mean safer streets for citizens and fewer illegal criminals roaming freely. Take a look:
Sessions decree on Justice.gov:
Today I am announcing that we are creating a transnational organized crime Task Force of experienced prosecutors who will coordinate our efforts and develop a plan to take each of these groups off of our streets for good.
The new Task Force will be led by Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein. I want to thank Patrick Hovakimian in his office for stepping up and taking charge of this task.
The new Task Force will be organized into one subcommittee for each of these target organizations. I am confident that he is going to be very effective in his new role.The subcommittee on MS-13 will be led by Assistant U.S. Attorney John Durham of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York. AUSA Durham has played a significant role in the FBI’s Long Island Task Force, which has arrested hundreds of MS-13 members.
The subcommittee on Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion will be led by Trial Attorney Brett Reynolds of the Narcotic and Dangerous Drug Section of the Department of Justice’s Criminal Division. Brett has led or co-led several investigations into the Cartel that have led to indictments of some of its highest ranking members.
The subcommittee on the Sinaloa Cartel will be led by Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew Sutton of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of California.
