Immigration and Customs Enforcement sent 20 times higher than the 80 requests received in 2016 to the liberal state, but New York Police Department legislative affairs director, Oleg Chernyavsky made it clear that they will continue to harbor illegals.
In New York, an illegal prisoner cannot be transferred into ICE’s custody unless they have been convicted of one of 170 serious crimes in the state.
Federal authorities are also required to present a warrant, which is nearly impossible to do given New York has largely refused to share prisoner information with ICE.
“That speaks volumes to our intent as a city,” Chernyavsky said. “It’s important for victims of crimes, irrespective of their immigration status, to trust their police and to come forward and inform their police.”
ICE field office director, Thomas Decker has slammed the liberal state for harboring illegals and refusing to work with the Trump administration to keep the nation safe.
“The release of criminal aliens back on New York City streets continues to pose a dangerous risk to our communities,” said Thomas Decker. “ICE will continue to dedicate more resources to conduct at-large arrests to ensure the safety of the law-abiding citizens of these communities.”
It speaks volumes that de Blasio is actively blocking federal authorities from doing their jobs simply because he doesn’t like Trump.
Trump has given ICE unfettered powers to seek out illegal immigrants — and the NYPD is being led by left-wingers who are dedicating taxpayer funds to protect those who shouldn’t even be in the country.
De Blasio and her liberal cronies may want to protect illegal aliens, but a majority of Americans want them removed from our nation immediately.
