A new report from ICE found that New York City is releasing hundreds of illegal criminal aliens, many of which were rearrested.
In just three months, New York City released 440 “dangerous” illegal immigrants with a violent criminal record, according to the Washington Examiner. After the city provided the information to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the agency blasted the “sanctuary city” for harboring illegal fugitives.
Time and time again, we continue to see that liberals are a menace to society and only care about protecting illegal immigrants who are mooching off the federal government. Rather than deport illegal criminals who violate U.S. laws, kill American citizens, and cause untold destruction on legal families, the liberal city continues to do everything imaginable to protect them.
The report also revealed that of those 440 dangerous criminals who were eligible for deportation, nearly one in ten went on to commit more crimes in the city. Rather than comply with ICE and deport these illegals from the country, the city protected them and refused to hand them over.
The report is from 2014, but it speaks to how much worse things have gotten since President Donald Trump took office.
President Donald Trump and his administration have gone to war with sanctuary cities like NYC, who harbor illegals, defy federal immigration law, and enact policies that put the American people in harm’s way.
In response to the report, a spokesperson from ICE said the cities liberal policies are also endangering agents.
“The politics and rhetoric in this city are putting its own communities at an unnecessary risk,” an ICE spokesperson in NYC said.
“ICE has no choice but to continue to conduct at-large arrests in local neighborhoods and at worksites, wasting valuable resources on criminal aliens who could be securely turned over to ICE custody at jails and prisons. However, ICE remains committed to its public safety mission and will continue to enforce our nation’s immigration laws,” he added.
As reported by Conservative Daily Post, liberal NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio was exposed earlier this year for denying denied 1,526 requests from Trump’s administration last year to allow federal authorities to detain illegal immigrants. ICE sent 20 times higher than the 80 requests received in 2016 to the liberal state, but de Blasio made it he will continue to harbor illegals.
New York has also created and installed numerous arbitrary laws that make it next to impossible for ICE to apprehend illegals while giving city officials and administrators even more power to keep illegals from being deported.
De Blasio and his goons are outright refusing to work with federal immigration officials because they believe it’s admirable to stand up to Trump. But really, all they are doing is proving that they care far more about illegals who break the law.
The latest report exposing de Blasio for protecting illegal criminals won’t come as a surprise to many as it is clear that he’s prioritizing illegals over protecting the American people.
