Immigration officials are flat-out blaming disgraced NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio for the murder of a 92-year-old Queens woman, who was killed by an illegal alien who was in NYC thanks to the mayors dangerous and lawless “sanctuary city laws.”
The country’s top immigration official blamed the “sanctuary policies” of New York City on Friday for the sexual assault and killing of a 92-year-old Queens woman, while the mayor’s office decried such rhetoric as “fear, hate and attempts to divide.”
Matthew Albence, the acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said at a news conference Friday that the slaying of Maria Fuertes could have been prevented if city officials had complied with a federal request to turn over the assailant, a Guyanese national, for deportation.
“It’s unbelievable that I have to come here and plead with the city of New York to cooperate with us to help keep this city safe,” Albence said. [NBC New York]
The New York sanctuary city laws are endangering American citizens – actually getting them brutally murdered in the streets. When is enough, enough? When will someone step in and put a stop to these lawless Democrats, placing the needs and lives of criminals above Americans?
ICE has been battling with sanctuary cities, but they need back and support from the DOJ.
In the meantime, ICE is now pulling rank on de Blasio and Cuomo, making it clear when they ask for something it’s not a “request” it’s a “demand.”
Things are getting more than a little testy in the Big Apple between Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Mayor Bill de Blasio. New York’s sanctuary city policy has continued to release criminal illegal aliens, ignoring detainers filed by the federal agency. A couple of those incidents resulted in tragedy, including the sexual assault and murder of 92-year-old Maria Fuertas of Queens by an illegal alien from Guyana who had been released in defiance of a federal detainer.
ICE has clearly reached the boiling point in trying to get the city government to act reasonably in these matters. One senior agency official said the agency has issued “immigration subpoenas” to find out the status of the criminal illegal aliens they are seeking. And he clarified matters by saying this was not “a request,” but a demand. The Mayor, however, seems to be standing firm in his defiance. (Associated Press)
“This is not a request — it’s a demand,” Henry Lucero, a senior U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement official, told The Associated Press. “This is a last resort for us. Dangerous criminals are being released every single day in New York.”
Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration said Saturday the city would review the subpoenas.
[…]The truth is that de Blasio inherited a city with historically low crime rates from his predecessors. But since then, things have taken a turn, and not for the better. Both murders and shootings have risen over the past three years, though thankfully not by huge amounts. Rapes increased by 24% in 2018, leveling off at that rate last year. Burglary and grand larceny were also up. [HotAir]
Imagine if Democrats had real, widespread power in this country?
In all honesty, we’d be a third world sh*thole in a matter of months.
Please remember that on election day and spread the word.
