(CNSNews.com ) – Over the past three years, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has arrested more than 11,000 members and associates of "transnational" gangs operating inside the United States. In an effort called Operation Community Shield, ICE has targeted street gangs, investigated their internal operations, disrupted their inflow of cash, weapons, and various assets, and worked to remove illegal alien gang members from the U.S. In the last four months alone--from June to September--ICE agents made nearly 1,800 arrests as part of what the agency is calling a nationwide public safety "surge." Almost 1,500 of those arrests were of gang members or their associates--including members of the violent transnational MS-13 gang.

Cuba training guerrillas in Venezuela

SAN CRISTOBAL, Venezuela, Oct. 5 (UPI) -- The Venezuelan government is operating a secret paramilitary training camp with the help of Cuban military advisers and leftist Colombian guerrillas.
The camp near San Cristobal offers six-week courses for 400 to 1,000 participants, El Nuevo Herald reported Sunday.
The first phase of training at the camp reportedly is political indoctrination through texts printed in Cuba. The second phase includes training in the use of light and heavy weaponry and explosives.
The government of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has not responded to allegations about the training camp, but local officials have acknowledged its existence and the presence of Cubans.
