NYC Mayor Looking To Modify Sanctuary Status

New York City Democrat Mayor Eric Adams called for officials to review the city’s sanctuary status so that local law enforcement can help federal immigration officials deport illegal aliens who commit a crime in the city.

Complaining of how bad illegal alien crime has gotten in the city, he stated, “We should not be allowing people who are repeatedly committing crimes to remain here and we cannot collaborate with ICE in the process. Those who are committing crimes, we need to modify the sanctuary city law. If you commit a felony, a violent act, we should be able to turn you over to ICE and have you deported.”

Adams’ remarks on Monday come amid an increase in crime rate in New York, the most extreme being the vicious attack on two police officers by illegal immigrants late last month. While the suspects were arrested, they were eventually released from custody after which they tried to flee the state for California.

However, federal authorities stopped and arrested them in Arizona.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg faced a lot of heat and backlash for allowing the release of the illegal immigrants after such a vicious attack on the police, which was caught on camera and made rounds on social media.

The Biden administration also took some heat for President Joe Biden’s lax border policies which has reportedly allowed over 7 million illegal immigrants into the U.S. during the first three years in office. The number is especially alarming as it is greater than the population of 36 U.S. states altogether.

The border crisis has become a huge issue for voters as Biden seeks reelection. While Democrats initially denied there was a crisis at all, many have admitted there is a full blown problem that needs to be solved, as U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reports a massive increase in illegal encounters at the U.S. border under the president.
