New York City officials refused to comply with over 440 ICE detainer notices between January and April 2018; raising serious red flags over how the nation’s largest city plans to comply with President Trump’s harsh crackdown on illegal immigration.
According to the Daily Caller, federal agencies requested information and support from the New York City Police Department and the city’s Department of Corrections in locating the individuals, but “received no response.”
“ICE has not been notified about the release of aliens in custody at New York City facilities since 2014, except for those that fall within the 170 crimes considered egregious by the Mayor’s Office,” said a spokesperson with the agency.
According to the report, 40 of those detained and subsequently released went on to commit “additional crimes.”
The stunning data comes as the President vows to clamp down on ‘Sanctuary Cities’ across the country, pledging to take down criminal street gangs such as MS-13.

GANGLAND: MS-13 Orders Members to ‘TAKE OUT COPS’ in New York
Notorious street-gang MS-13 has reportedly ordered its members to “take out” police officers in New York; hoping to send a strong message to authorities following a serious crackdown on the group throughout the region.
According to the New York Post, the NYPD is on high-alert after a confidential informant told police that gang members were given a green light to murder local police officers; particularly in the nearby town of Hempstead on Long Island.
“The police have been making too many arrests and it’s time to take the streets back and take out (shoot) a cop like we do in El Salvador,” the suspect said.
Police are ratcheting up patrols and tracking down all leads related to the threat.
“It is imperative for members of the service to take these threats seriously and adapt their work habits and lifestyles accordingly,” said a memo released by the New York Police Department.
GANGLAND: New Yorkers PRAISE Trump’s Crackdown on ‘Animal’ MS-13
Local residents on Long Island, New York praised the President’s tough approach to violent street gang MS-13 this week; thanking the President for his harsh crackdown on the cartel that has terrorized communities for over a decade.
The President first visited the region in July to talk with leaders about the “bloodstained killing fields” that had overrun their neighborhoods; saying his administration will “dismantle and eradicate” the gang after multiple murders terrorized the suburban communities.
“It feels a lot better and safer,” longtime Brentwood resident Melissa Early, 40, told Newsday. “I’m not sure if they’ve moved on or they just know people are gunning for them.”
“It used to be … people afraid to walk around,” she said. “Now it’s all different. The police are really on top of things.”
Democrat Nassau County Executive Laura Curran praised the Trump administration’s response to MS-13, calling the President’s focus on law enforcement a “unique opportunity.”
“It is a unique opportunity,” Curran said, “to directly seek more federal funds and assistance for law enforcement to combat gangs and gain resources for community groups to keep our youth from joining gangs.”
