President Donald Trump has placed an emphasis on pointing out sadistic MS-13 gang members as being the worst of the worst in terms of criminal illegal aliens, and Democrats have, by virtue of their reflexive opposition to all things Trump, stepped up to defend the atrocious criminals.
It will be interesting to see how, or even if, Democrats will attempt to defend a female illegal alien from El Salvador who just pleaded guilty to being involved in a series of armed robberies, crimes for which she received a sentence of 95 years in prison.
According to The Daily Caller and public court records, 20-year-old Josselin Ramirez already had developed a criminal record in El Salvador — including involvement in the ambush of a police officer and assassination of a rival gang member — prior to her illegal entry into the U.S. in 2013.
Ramirez settled in the Temple Hills, MD area where she joined up with an associate of the MS-13 gang and bore a child while also taking part in that gang’s illicit activities, which included more than a half-dozen armed robberies.
Prosecutors argued that Ramirez was responsible for staking out businesses prior to the robberies and then cleaning weapons and disposing of evidence afterward … that is, until she was arrested in 2017 in Alexandria, Virginia.
She was sentenced to 95 years in prison on six separate charges, which included three counts of conspiracy to commit armed robbery and three counts of participating in gang-related crime.
Ramirez will face deportation hearings when/if she is ever released from prison, and will no doubt be separated from her child while her criminal sentence is served … a separation brought about by her own criminal actions.
Indeed, both the judge and prosecutors made clear that Ramirez had chosen the criminal lifestyle of her own volition and had not been coerced or intimidated into carrying out any sort of gang activity.
“You embraced the lifestyle again. It doesn’t make sense to me, and I’m having trouble understanding. You need to be housed away so you can’t harm others,” stated Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge John M. Maloney during her trial in June.
President Trump has rightly placed a focus on containing the MS-13 “animals” that are responsible for despicable and horrific crimes, crimes which involve a level of violent sadism not typically seen in the average street criminal.
This woman decided to walk the criminal path and displayed no respect for the citizens and laws of this great nation, and placed herself, her child and countless others at risk with her actions.
Hopefully this woman never walks free on American soil again and is immediately deported back to El Salvador … if she is ever released from prison in the first place.
