MS-13 gang member Franklin Pineda-Caceras has been sentenced to 90 months in prison by a federal Tennessee court.
Pineda-Caceras, 22, was deported from the United States back to Hondoras twice, in 2017 and 2018, but managed to get back in.
After his most recent return, the gangster kidnapped a teenager who refused to join the notoriously violent and depraved gang.
“Pineda-Caceras, who is also known as ‘Bomba’ or ‘Bomb,’ initially pleaded guilty to illegal reentry of a previously deported alien; being an illegal alien in possession of ammunition; being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm; possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number; and possession of marijuana and cocaine with the intent to distribute,” the Daily Mail reports. “But he then elected to take the firearm possession and in the furtherance of a drug-trafficking crime and a federal jury found him guilty on February 9.”
According to the Department of Justice, the violent criminal first made his way into the US in 2014 and was deported in 2016.
Pineda-Caceras came back in 2017 and his Nashville home was raided by police. They found 41 grams of cocaine, more than 44 grams of marijuana, a cache of firearms and ammunition. He was deported a year later, but crossed back over the border.
He was arrested for kidnapping the teenager in January, 2019.
“Authorities nearly arrested in July 2019 when he drove off in his vehicle and crashed through a front yard, nearly running over his girlfriend, son and the woman’s mother. Pineda-Caceras was finally apprehended in September 2019 after he was involved in an accident and suffered several injuries,” the Daily Mail report adds. “Cops at the scene searched his car and found scales, baggies, packaged cocaine, a gun, whose serial number has been erased, an AK-47 and ammunition.”
In 2018, Democrats defended the notorious gang after President Donald Trump referred to them as “animals.”
Trump’s White House responded to the criticism with a statement explaining the threat the gang poses, stating that “the violent animals of MS-13 have committed heinous, violent attacks in communities across America.”
“At the State of the Union in January 2018, President Trump brought as his guests Elizabeth Alvarado, Robert Mickens, Evelyn Rodriguez, and Freddy Cuevas, the parents of Nisa Mickens and Kayla Cuevas. Police believe these young girls were chased down and brutally murdered by MS-13 gang members on Long Island, New York, in 2016,” the statement read.
It went on to state that Suffolk County Police Commissioner said that the “murders show a level of brutality that is close to unmatched.” Nearly 40 percent of all murders in his county between January 2016 and June 2017 were tied to MS-13.
“In Maryland, MS-13’s animals are accused of stabbing a man more than 100 times and then decapitating him, dismembering him, and ripping his heart out of his body. Police believe MS-13 members in Maryland also savagely beat a 15-year-old human trafficking victim. The MS-13 animals used a bat and took turns beating her nearly 30 times in total,” the statement continued.
The extremely brutal transnational gang’s motto is “aata, roba, viola, controla’”(Kill, steal, rape, control), yet Democratic pundits and politicians feigned outrage that Trump would dare to “dehumanize” them.”
“In January 2017, MS-13 members were charged with killing and hacking up a teenager in Nassau County. MS-13’s animals reportedly saw the murder as a way to boost their standing in the gang. In April 2017, police believe four young men were brutally murdered by MS-13 animals on Long Island. One victim was a young man in town visiting family during an Easter week vacation. Just last month, in April 2018, MS-13 reportedly called for its members on Long Island to kill a cop for the sake of making a statement,” the White House noted at the time.
