As we’ve said many times, the most common victims of criminal illegal aliens when released from sanctuary jurisdictions are legal immigrants. Such is the case of Maria Fuertes, 92, who was allegedly raped and murdered by Reeaz Khan, an illegal immigrant from Guyana.
Fuertes’ granddaughter, Daria Ortiz, joined President Trump and spoke against the sanctuary jurisdiction policies that protected Khan from an ICE detainer so he could then rape and murder Fuertes. He heartfelt speech reported brought tears to the eyes of many who were in attendance, and rightfully so. Heinous crimes like these that could be prevented if radical progressive sanctuary city policies never existed make it even tougher for the families of the victims.
Every defense of the theory that sanctuary policies make people safer has been summarily debunked. At this point, they only exist because Democrats are too stubborn to acknowledge facts. They prefer feelings, just not the feelings of victims’ families.
