A Long Island community is on edge as it mourns the death of four teenage boys. Police found the bodies of Jorge Tigre and Michael Banegas last week near a community park in Central Islip. Police say the brutal manner in which the boys were killed are consistent with the style of MS-13 murders.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions specifically cited gang violence on Long Island as he called for enhanced border security and immigration reform.
