An illegal immigrant and member of the gang MS-13 wanted for two murders has been arrested in Virginia, just outside of the nation’s capital.

The 20-year-old man, Douglas Alexander Herrera-Hernandez, had the nickname “Terror,” and was wanted for two murders in the Houston, Texas area, Fox 5 DC reports.

Herrera was arrested by authorities in Arlington, Virginia. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Arlington Police, and Washington, D.C.’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) and FBI worked together to capture the man.

He was on the 10 Most Wanted Fugitives in Texas and is believed to be from El Salvador.

In a speech this week, President Donald Trump spoke about MS-13, saying he wanted to “eliminate” the group.

“Together we’re going to restore safety to our streets and peace to our communities and we’re going to destroy the vile, criminal cartel MS-13 and many other gangs,” he said.

And in reference to MS-13 “thugs” being arrested, Trump told law enforcement, “Please don’t be too nice.”

This story comes as a number of stories about illegal immigrants have made headlines.

In one story from Portland, Oregon, an illegal immigrant who had been previously deported 20 times raped and robbed a 65-year-old woman.

In another instance, an illegal immigrant in Geneseo, New York was arrested for repeatedly raping a 12-year-old. (RELATED: Illegal Immigrant Repeatedly Raped 12-Year-Old Girl, Police Say)
