Law enforcement officials on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation in Montana began training this week on accessing the federal data.

Jeff Sessions, the United States attorney general who runs the Department of Justice (DOJ) and is in charge of making sure that everyone-including police officers-obey the law, has increasingly made it clear that he does not support prosecuting law enforcement officers who violate the civil rights of the people they are supposed to serve.

President Donald Trump echoed Sessions' commitment to a more aggressive crime fighting approach, going a step further to blame the Obama administration by name for the rise of MS-13.

"We can not allow this to continue".

MS-13 is the USA -based arm of Salvadoran crime gang Mara Salvatrucha.

He says tougher enforcement of immigration and border crimes will curb gang activity. "If you are a gang member: We will find you".
