How Bad Is The Rising Transnational Gang Presence In The U.S.?

Attorney General Jeff Sessions addressed a group of law enforcement officers in Boston on Thursday, in a speech that mostly focused on combating transnational gangs like MS-13.

Sessions says they’re making it a top priority to root out the gang, member by member, and that local law enforcement should do the same.

Joining us for some context to these comments is Geoff Thale, program director for the Washington Office on Latin America. They do research and advocacy work around human rights in the Americas.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The story has been updated to correct the spelling of Geoff Thale's name.
