An old woman was raped and died a horrible death. Sadly, it was entirely preventable.
Acting Director Matthew T. Albence is livid.
“There is no worse feeling than when those citizens you are sworn to protect are needlessly harmed.”
How devastating must it be for the Acting Head of ICE know that it’s HIS department’s job to scoop up threats like the guy who raped and murdered this elderly woman, and the only thing that stopped ICE from saving her life was a ‘woke’ policy that prevents cops from notifying ICE that bad guys need to be scooped up and carted away in handcuffs.
This happened in AOC’s own backyard. The same AOC that has campaigned for the better part of a year demonizing law enforcement officers whose job it is to prevent tragedies like this one.
Get it through your little head, girl. ICE were the good guys, Alexandria. Will SHE look the bereaved family members of Maria Fuertes in the eyes and tell her that she still stands by a policy that makes ‘angel moms’ the bad guys and violent border jumpers the ‘victims’ of law enforcement?

“Make no mistake, it is this city’s sanctuary policies that is the sole reason this criminal was allowed to roam the streets freely and end an innocent woman’s life,” Albence said.
“One simple phone call and Maria Fuertes could be alive today,” he added later.
It was only steps from her home that she was raped and murdered by 21-year-old Reeaz Khan.
But prosecutors say he was caught on surveillance video approaching Maria Fuertes from behind while she was still standing, checking a pile of garbage bags for returnable empties on 127th St. in South Richmond Hill just after midnight Jan. 6.
The video shows them then falling to the ground together, disappearing from view behind a car for four sickening minutes just around the corner from the victim’s home.
Then Khan, a day laborer who lives less than a mile from the crime scene, is seen running off alone.
…Fuertes died at Jamaica Hospital with a fractured spine, broken ribs, internal hemorrhaging and tears in her vagina, according to court papers.
Kahan is reportedly from Guyana.
