By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Salvadoran President, Nayib Bukele’s administration’s crackdown on gangs continues.

On Sunday, over 2,000 soldiers and police closed off Comasagua, a town in El Salvador to search for street gang members accused of killing, the Associated Press reports.

Anyone entering or leaving the town was questioned or searched.

President Bukele said that members of the MS-13 gang were believed to still be inside Comasagua, about 20 miles (30 kms) southwest of the capital, San Salvador.

The State of Emergency was first declared in March after 62 murders were reported due to gang violence. Since then, the decree has been renewed every month.

To date, 53,484 people have been arrested and 47, 893 of them charged.

And, while human rights activists call on Bukele to respect the human rights and dignity of those being detained, polls show that Salvadorans support his move.
