(Tea Party PAC) – New York has had the eyes of the nation on them for the last few weeks as the ugly side of their bail reforms rear their ugly head.
They have a long history, however, of releasing criminals into the general population, including, as it is a sanctuary state, criminal illegal aliens.
The state has released over 7,500 criminal illegal aliens into communities just last year, including convicted murderers and sexual offenders, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has confirmed.
During a press conference on Friday, Acting ICE Director Matthew Albence revealed that, in 2019, law enforcement officers in the state of New York released approximately 7,516 criminal illegal aliens into the population in spite of criminal convictions and charges filed against them.
In every one of those cases, ICE agents asked that the criminal illegal aliens be turned over to their agency so they could be arrested and deported.
However, due to the state’s sanctuary status, they are all released.
This is highly disturbing!
Breitbart notes that “Albence said New York only turned over to ICE about ten criminal illegal aliens last year.”
What does it take to get kicked out of the country according to New York’s standards?
Altogether, these over 7,500 criminal illegal aliens released back into communities in the state had a total of 17,873 criminal convictions and 6,500 criminal charges filed against them.
This includes criminal aliens charged or convicted with:
• 200 homicides
• More than 1,000 sexual offenses
• More than 500 robberies
• More than 3,500 assaults
• More than 1,500 DUIs
• More than 1,000 weapons violations
“The only immigrants protected by such policies are those committing violent and dangerous offenses, often in the same communities that these politicians are purporting to protect,” Albence said during the press conference.
Albence also debunked sanctuary politicians’ claims that ICE can simply obtain a judicial warrant if they want a criminal illegal alien turned over to them. The issue, Albence said, is that it is impossible under federal law for a federal judge to grant a judicial warrant to ICE because it is not in their authority.
In the recent case of 92-year-old Maria Fuertes, who was allegedly murdered by an illegal alien on January 6 in a brutal attack and sexual assault, the suspect had been arrested by the New York Police Department (NYPD) two months prior. Despite ICE’s request that he be turned over to them, the NYPD released him from custody.
As Breitbart News exclusively reported, the illegal alien charged in Fuertes’ murder, Reeaz Khan, had arrived in the United States in May 2016 on a B-2 tourist visa but never left — thus remaining in the country for three years as an illegal alien.
“These are preventable crimes, people, and more importantly, preventable victims,” Albence said.
