BRENTWOOD, NEW YORK – 28 Jul, 2017 – The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office, County Correction Officers and Deputy Sheriffs are on the front lines of the war against gang proliferation, including MS-13, in Long Island, New York. The Suffolk County Sheriff is extending a warm welcome to the President as he seeks to change the trajectory on outworn immigration policies — and make America safer and more prosperous for all.
Long Island is now at the heart of the nation’s immigration debate; MS-13 gang violence and murders have gripped its suburban communities. Sheriff Vincent F. DeMarco is a strong supporter for intensified border security, closing loopholes in our immigration system, improving communication with local stakeholders and has been outspoken about how gangs have exploited government programs, like the Unaccompanied Refugee Minors Program.
DeMarco recently praised the Trump Administration for attacking the economic heart of what he called a strengthening alliance between Mexican drug cartels, sex traffickers and gangs. “When people talk about border security the first thing they usually think of is illegal immigration, but I think about heroin…I think about sex trafficking and arms smuggling. These are issues that have had a devasting affect on millions of Americans, including law-abiding non-citizens who are here to make a better life for themselves, their families and their communities,” said Sheriff DeMarco.
Vincent F. DeMarco is the Sheriff of Suffolk County, New York, and the Chairman of the County’s Criminal Justice Coordinating Council. As Suffolk’s Chief Law Enforcement Officer, he leads an organization with more than 1300 uniformed and civilian employees responsible for protecting life and property. He has oversight of the largest suburban correctional facility in New York State, and participates in the FBI Long Island Gang Task Force, the Long Island DEA Task Force, Homeland Security Investigations (HIS) and the US Marshals Service New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force.
