U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions spoke on Long Island, New York, near sites where 11 bodies were found. The bodies were found in parks and vacant lots, believed to be the work of gangs. He spoke to law enforcement officials about immigration reform and the need to combat violence.

Sessions gave specific examples about how the government would go about investigating and prosecuting gangs.

“We will identify these networks, investigate and build cases against them, and dismantle them through targeted prosecutions. Then criminals who are convicted will be deported. Securing our border and restoring a lawful system of immigration are essential parts of a strategy to combat criminal groups and ensure public safety in our country, and we will see this task through,” he said.

He specifically mentioned the MS-13 gang, which is believed to be responsible for the Long Island killings.
