Almost 300 MS-13 Gang Members Arrested in Nationwide Bust

Nearly 300 members and associates of the infamous transnational drug gang MS-13 have been arrested in an interdepartmental collaboration called Operation: Raging Bull, leadership of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Agency announced Thursday.

Led by ICE Homeland Security Investigations’ (HSI) National Gang Unit, the operation was a multi-phase, multi-month project of numerous federal law enforcement agencies, including ICE, U.S. Customs and Immigration Service, the U.S. Border Patrol, and the Department of Justice. The operation led to a total of 267 arrests of MS-13 members and associates.

In September, ICE announced initial arrests of 53 MS-13 gang members in El Salvador, the product of 18 months of investigation. On Thursday, the results of an additional month of investigation were further revealed.
