Trump expected to visit Long Island for forum on MS-13
Seaford Congressman Peter King says President Donald Trump will be holding an MS-13 forum discussion on Wednesday at the Morelly Homeland Security Center in Bethpage.
President Trump has often turned to Long Island to illustrate the gang's deadly reach.
During his State of the Union address in January, he invited the parents of murdered Brentwood teens Nisa Mickens and Kayla Cuevas to attend the speech.
Last summer, President Trump also visited Brentwood, appearing alongside Long Island law enforcement officers at Suffolk County Community College, where he vowed to put an end MS-13.
The trip comes as the president defends describing immigrants belonging to MS-13 as "animals" earlier this week during a panel on California's Sanctuary city status. His remarks were met with widespread condemnation.
