Granddaughter of elderly Hispanic woman killed by illegal immigrant blasts 'sanctuary' law
LINK

Daria Ortez, the granddaughter of a 92-year-old Hispanic woman who is said to have been murdered by an illegal immigrant in New York that was previously spared deportation under the city's sanctuary ordinance, blasted the controversial policy on Friday.

At a press conference alongside Donald President Trump, Ortiz said her grandmother would still be alive if the New York Police Department had complied with a standing order to turn-over the alleged killer to Immigration and Customs Enforcement in November when he was in police custody for a separate matter.

"The tragedy in all of this is the fact that this could have been avoided, had there been no sanctuary law," Ortiz said. "The tragedy is my grandmother is not ever going to be here again."

She added: "The man who was responsible for this should have never had the opportunity to do this."

Ortiz was a guest of Trump at the National Border Patrol Council where she delivered an emotional tribute to her grandmother, an immigrant from the Dominican Republic. The young woman described 92-year-old Maria Fuertes as a "shining example of when people come legally to this country, work hard, and do the right thing and are law-abiding citizens."

Ortiz said Furtes "raised her children and her grandchildren while working hard to give us a future."

As TheBlaze previously reported, Maria Fuentes was sexually assaulted and murdered just steps from her home in Queens on Jan. 6.

Initially, police officers thought her death was the result of a slip-and-fall accident. Upon further investigation, law enforcement officials arrested 21-year-old Reeaz Khan and charged him with raping and then strangling the nonagenarian to death.

According to WABC-TV, Khan is a Guyanese national who was in the country illegally despite having a violent criminal record. He was arrested in November after stabbing his own father. While he was in police custody, immigration enforcement ordered Khan to be detained. Had the NYPD followed the detainer order, Khan would have been turned over to ICE. Instead, pursuant to Mayor Bill de Blasio's "sanctuary city" policy, the alleged violent criminal was released back to the streets.

Following Fuertes' murder, police leaders and federal immigration officials slammed de Blasio's policy as "dangerously flawed."

"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," ICE Acting-Director Matthew Albence said.

"One simple phone call and Maria Fuertes could be alive today," he said.

She should own every dime Deblasio (and the city council) has or ever will have.

I’m guessing the dems stance on this is the ends justify the means? Has any of the New York politicians commented?

Well, any liberal will tell you that killing a few grand mothers is a small price to pay for big government socialist utopias.

I have yet to see any explanation as to how sanctuary cities make good policy.

It's not like people are being rounded up just because they are here illegally (though they should be). These are people who have broken the law and are released to commit more crimes as opposed to being detained for deportation.

They are not innocents. They are criminals. Why do libs want criminals released? It makes NO sense at all. You would think this is an issue that cuts completely across the aisle for both parties.

I just don't get it.

Raping an elderly woman should carry the same punishment as raping a child.

Sanctuary policies can burn in hell. Colorado is pushing hard this way. Borders and laws exist for a reason.

Deranged Left: please look the other way, and remember that your house-painters and lettuce-pickers are cheaper because of our sanctuary policies

I don't get libs on the sanctuary issue. When Arizona tried to enforce it's own immigration policy, Obama sued them and won. Federal immigration policy supersedes state law. Yet libs argue the opposite with sanctuary policies. Which is it?

Raping any woman should have the same punishment. Cut his dick off and let him bleed out.

The Left owns the judges and courts in that area. She might well lose, IF she could even find any atty to take the case.

It's going to take a few generations to cure the USA, my friends, and, the medicine has barely begun.

I hate when opportunistic politicians seek partisan advantage from the suffering of a grieving family member.

Sometimes it is the Left (school shootings, etcetera), and sometimes it is the Right.

In both instances, it is despicable.

I've been told by many learned scholars that it's ok because it "starts a conversation."

frick you.

Deblasio and his ilk should owe this woman's family everything they own.

Who the frick else is going to better explain the letting out of murderers, rapists, and other scum for the sake of pandering for votes.

That woman would not be dead if not for deBlasio. He killed her the same as if his hand was on the knife.

You are such an insufferable prick.

Your contrarian opinion on everything is so tiresome. You’re a fricking douchebag who stands for nothing, yet argues for everything.

Completely different circumstances and motives, but I understand that you can’t help yourself.

Maybe constant well funded lawsuits can do more vs sanctuary cities than our politicians.
