NYC FALLOUT: ICE Director Says De Blasio Needs to ‘Own’ Murder of 92-Year-Old by Illegal Immigrant

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.20.20

The Acting Director of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency ripped New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Sanctuary City policies this week; saying he needs to “own” the crimes brought about by his immigration proposals.

“The policies of the mayor make this city less safe,” said acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Matthew Albence.“If you’re going to have a sanctuary city policy, just own it.”

“We wanted him three months ago before he did this,” Albence said. “If we had been able to cooperate with the NYPD, Maria Fuentes would be alive today.”

New York City’s ‘Sanctuary City’ policies came under fire from countless residents this week after an illegal immigrant -recently released by the NYPD- allegedly sexually assaulted then murdered a 92-year-old victim.

“New York City’s sanctuary city policy is again under fire after an illegal immigrant, who was released from NYPD custody in November despite a plea from federal immigration officials to hold him, is alleged to have gone on to sexually assault and murder a 92-year-old woman,” reports Fox News.

“There has been a complete breakdown of law & order in New York City,” Acting Department of Homeland Security Chad Wolf tweeted Wednesday. “NYC proudly passed sanctuary city laws & bragged about it for months. But now they, & more importantly, the citizens of NYC are facing the deadly consequences of the sanctuary policies.”

“New York City’s sanctuary policies continue to threaten the safety of all residents of the five boroughs, as they repeatedly protect criminal aliens who show little regard for the laws of this nation,” said the ICE field office Director. “In New York City alone, hundreds of arrestees are released each month with pending charges and/or convictions to return back into the communities where they committed their crimes, instead of being transferred into the custody of ICE.”
