(Before It's News)


In testimony at a Senate hearing on Thursday on the 2016 budget for the U.S Marshals Service (USMS), Director Stacia Hylton said there are “nearly one million” criminal gang members operating in the U.S. today.

“[Gangs] now exist across the country in urban, suburban, and rural communities, with nearly one million members who are criminally active in the United States,” Hylton said at the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies.

“As the leader in apprehending the worst of the worst criminals, the USMS arrests approximately 300 fugitives per day,” Hylton said in her prepared remarks.

Between 2010 and 2014, a USMS operation netted 4,200 arrests in 22 U.S. cities and resulted in the seizure of more than $3 million in narcotics, $1 million in U.S. currency and more than 900 illegal firearms, Hylton added. More Full report at link below.
