To go along with the plethora of titles that New York City has already managed to garner over the last 400 years, a Tuesday announcement from the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) revealed yet another title for America’s melting pot as it is now the most dangerous sanctuary community in America.
The 35-year-old institute, which is known for advocating for the reduction of legal immigration from just over a million down to roughly 300,000 a year, has vowed to defend the rights of the individual American citizen and that of their local communities from the various challenges and corresponding harm inflicted by mass migration into the United States.
As part of a recently published report, the institute highlighted the top ten sanctuary communities that have proven to be quite dangerous nationwide, and right at the tippy top of the list sits none other than New York City.
“These communities have earned their places on this list because of incredibly poor leadership at the city, county, and state levels,” expressed IRLI’s executive director and general counsel, Dale L. Wilcox, as part of a release. “Data overwhelmingly shows that sanctuary policies lead to more crime, fear, and death.”
“The leaders of these communities should not escape accountability for the damage they have caused,” continued Wilcox. “Their residents deserve much more.”
It is not really all that hard to see just how New York City was able to get this new title after its last eight years under former Mayor Bill de Blasio and his radical and harmful sanctuary policies. Just about every day, the public is able to see multiple cell phone videos, surveillance footage, and various reports that highlight rampant theft, rapes, violent assaults, and murder sweeping across the city from its non-citizens and citizens alike.
Eric Adams, the current new mayor and a former officer of the New York Police Department, has promised to try and clear up the disregard for community safety exhibited by the person before him. Despite this, the rhetoric to try and crack down on rampant crime doesn’t seem to be resonating with the public since he recently and openly supported the sanctuary status for the city and has continued right along with the pro-illegal immigrant policies set in place by de Blasio such as a non-citizen voting law.
Just prior to COVID sweeping across the country and changing the United States fundamentally, New York City chose to release well over 7,500 illegal immigrants, quite a few of whom has previous convictions for sexual abuse and murder, back into the various diverse communities around the five Burroughs.
It was reported by Breitbart that Matthew Albence, the acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), unveiled that back in 2019, the 7,500 illegal aliens release back into the communities by NYC law enforcement sported a shocking total of 17,873 criminal convictions and 6,500 processing criminal charges still pending against them.
These particular criminal convictions and charges included 500 robberies, 200 homicides, and more than 1,000 sexual offenses. All while others had more than 1,500 DUIs, 1,000 weapons violations, and 3,500 assaults.
“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,” explained Albence during the press conference. “These are preventable crimes, people, and more importantly, preventable victims.”
