New York City’s so-called ‘sanctuary policies’ are under fire yet again after an illegal immigrant allegedly murdered a 92-year-old woman. Acting ICE Director Matthew Albence spoke at a news conference on Friday and highlighted some of the key issues with the city’s policies.
“A lot of these guys are repeat offenders, or violent offenders, and these cops are out there day after day putting their lives on the line,” stated Albence. “It’s got to be incredibly frustrating for them to arrest these guys, knowing they’re here illegally, knowing that ICE can get them off the street, and three weeks later they’re arresting them again.”
The director used 21-year-old Reeaz Khan as an example. The illegal immigrant from Guyana was charged with murder and sexual assault following his attack on the 92-year-old woman.
“Make no mistake: It is this city’s sanctuary policies that are the sole reason this criminal was allowed to roam the streets freely and end an innocent woman’s life,” he added.
