Governor Cuomo’s Statement About MS-13 Arrests

December 23, 2019

ALBANY, NY – Over the weekend, almost 100 suspects believed to have been members of MS-13, were arrested in Long Island. Governor Andrew Cuomo issued the following statement:

“MS-13 has terrorized Long Island communities for too long, murdering innocent New Yorkers and instilling fear in countless others.

“Thanks to the great work of Suffolk County DA Sini, law enforcement and our targeted programs to keep young people from joining gangs, MS-13’s power is diminishing. Today’s arrest of nearly 100 of these violent gang members is further proof of that.

“This fight is not over, and there’s much more work to do to bring justice to the families victimized by the abhorrent acts of MS-13. I applaud the work of these incredible investigators and detectives, and pledge to continue our aggressive efforts to eradicate MS-13 from Long Island once and for all.”
