This is the reality of open borders.
Migrant invaders who, despite media coverage, are mostly military age males, enter the country, claim some sort of refugee status, are released pending court dates in the next decade, and then commit crimes. Cities are staggering under the burden of this endless wave of open borders terror.
Here’s how much damage one single invader was able to do in a city where leftist pro-crime politicos have ensured there is no functional justice system.
With no borders and no justice system, predators like this are able to enter and do whatever they want.
A man who arrived in New York City two months ago from Venezuela has randomly attacked at least three strangers and two cops, and gotten arrested – and released – six times on 14 different charges, police and sources said.
Daniel Hernandez Martinez, 29, arrived on June 27 and allegedly committed his first crime the following day.
“He’s been wreaking havoc,” a cop with more than 20 years on the job said. “This is not an isolated incident. These migrants are getting arrested quite often here, and we really don’t know who they are. They really don’t have ID. They’re not being vetted properly, but some of them are committing some of the most violent crimes here.”
Attack a security guard with a knife under DA Bragg and you get released on your “own recognizance”.
He “pulled out a large knife and advanced toward an undercover officer” while yelling unintelligibly, court documents show.
Martinez was charged with menacing this time, but again released on his own recognizance because the charge wasn’t bail-eligible.
The violent assaults escalated from there and he kept getting released.
On Aug. 21, he violently attacked a woman in Midtown, cops said. He “grabbed a stranger by the hair, dragged her across the floor and kicked her,” and smashed her phone on West 45th Street around 1 a.m., court documents show.
He was charged with menacing, assault, criminal mischief, and weapon possession, and placed on supervised release, according to court records.
Three days later, he was arrested for menacing with a weapon and harassment after threatening a stranger with a chain in front of 701 Eighth Ave., cops said. He was again released with no bail.
Combine open borders and pro-crime policies like eliminating bail, backed by Gov. Hochul and pro-crime Dems and you get endless terror with zero consequences.
He requested medical attention and was taken to Beth Israel Hospital. While there, he assaulted a police officer who was trying to change his handcuffs, kicking him twice in the shins and stomping on his foot, the records show. He was charged with assaulting a police officer.
This is what open borders and open jails are doing to the country. It’s time to close the borders and close the prison doors.
