By Nicole Acevedo


Immigrant youth detentions in New York have increased dramatically since Trump spotlighted gang violence and MS-13 during his campaign and throughout his first year in office. MS-13 is an international criminal gang that originated in Los Angeles in the 80s, started mainly by Salvadorans in the U.S. At least 821 immigrants under the age of 18 currently are detained in New York, according to data from Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC). In 2017, 238 young immigrants were detained by immigration authorities compared to just 31 in 2016.
