ATTORNEY GENERAL/CABINET/DHS/TRUMP PEOPLE/JEFF SESSIONS/JOHN KELLY: “Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly say they are on a mission: dismantle transnational criminal organizations and stop gangs from pushing drugs over the southwest border.
The two agency heads painted grim visions of a nation under siege on Tuesday [4-18-17]– using similarly ominous rhetoric in their promises to fight against illegal drug cartels.
‘We are a nation under attack,’ Kelly said during a speech at George Washington University. ‘We are under attack from criminals who think their greed justifies raping young girls at knife point, dealing poison to our youth or killing just for fun.’
‘Like terrorists, TCOs (transnational criminal organizations) inflict unthinkable brutality, and regularly behead their victims,’ Kelly added. ‘They are utterly without laws, conscience or respect for human life.’ “
