New York Mayor and failed presidential candidate Bill de Blasio is reaping what he sowed for protecting illegal immigrants.
After the New York City Police Department set a criminal illegal immigrant free rather than holding him over for an ICE detainer and that man then raped and killed an elderly woman, de Blasio is now being held accountable with a $1 billion suit filed against both the mayor and city of New York.
The alleged rapist is Reeaz Khan, a 21-year-old illegal immigrant who had been arrested for violent crimes prior.
He was supposed to be turned over to ICE for deportation, but with New York City being a sanctuary city, that never happened.
Khan, after having been released, attacked 92-year-old Maria Fuertes.
The elderly woman was left for dead after the attack but she was discovered unconscious, but later succumbed to her injuries and died.
Among her injuries was a broken spine, showing just how brutal an attack was carried out by Khan.
On the Attack
The murder has created outrage among conservatives and even has New Yorkers wanting to know what their mayor is doing to keep them safe.
The city has seen a massive uptick in crime, yet de Blasio refuses to place the blame on the fact the city is now harboring illegal immigrant criminals.
According to recent reports, robberies in the city are up by 31.5 percent, burglaries are up 15 percent, and grand larceny is up 67 percent.
In all, serious felony crimes are up 11 percent so far this year compared to 2019.
In addition to being a sanctuary city, New York has also instituted a new law for non-violent crimes to no longer require bail, meaning criminals are being put back on the street quicker than ever before in New York City.
Dermot Shea, the New York City Police Commissioner, is now at odds with his mayor, openly speaking out about the changes in policy and how they are impacting his ability to police the city.
Shea recently stated, “Now, as you see, this is in the first three weeks of the year, we are seeing significant spikes in crime.
“Either we have forgotten how to police New York city or there is a correlation.”
He added, “If you let out individuals that commit a lot of crime, that’s precision policing in reverse, and we’re seeing the effects in very quick time, and that is why we’re concerned.”
This is what happens when you create laws to be politically correct rather than trying to keep people safe.
We have seen this in Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, and more recently in Dallas, a city that has seen sweeping changes put in place by a Democrat regime that is quickly turning Dallas into the wild west.
With any luck, this lawsuit against de Blasio will be the first of many brought against Democrat politicians that simply put the safety of their citizens at the bottom of their list of priorities.
