A beloved 92-year-old woman was sexually abused and murdered by a 21-year-old illegal alien after New York refused to hand him over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Reeaz Khan claims that he found Maria Fuertes laying on the ground in Queens when he got on top of her to try to help. He claims that his belt broke, pants fell down, and his penis fell near her vagina. At this point, he says, he lost control and tried to have sex with her.
“As I walked down the sidewalk I saw someone, a lady on the floor to the side of me,” Khan told the New York Daily News of the sexual assault and murder. “I should have kept walking and just not helped but it’s in my heart to help.”
The Daily News reports that “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.”
ICE had previously attempted to take Khan, a Guyanese national, into custody in November — but he was protected by New York’s sanctuary laws.
“Reeaz Khan, 21, an unlawfully present Guyanese national, was arrested Jan. 10 by the NYPD and charged with murder, sexual abuse, contact by forcible compulsion, and sexual abuse against a person incapable of consent. Khan was previously released from local law enforcement custody in November 2019 with an active detainer, due to New York City’s sanctuary policies,” ICE said in a statement.
Khan was previously arrested by the NYPD on charges of assault and criminal possession of a weapon in November. The same day he was arrested, ERO deportation officers lodged a detainer with the NYPD, but the detainer was not honored, and Khan was released following his arraignment.
“It is made clear that New York City’s stance against honoring detainers is dangerously flawed. It was a deadly choice to release a man on an active ICE detainer back onto the streets after his first arrest included assault and weapon charges, and he now faces new charges, including murder,” said Thomas R. Decker, field office director for ERO New York. “New York City’s sanctuary policies continue to threaten the safety of all residents of the five boroughs, as they repeatedly protect criminal aliens who show little regard for the laws of this nation.
And THIS is why liberal recommendations for “common sense” gun control doesn’t work and never will. They focus on the law abiding citizen and let the criminal run free. If they actually considered guns illegally in the hands of people as a threat to safety (and that is where ALL the threat is), WHY would they let this guy go free? Because he is illegally in this country?
His excuse sounds like he has a lot of experience making excuses to liberals.
ICE: 90% of all arrests of illegal aliens had criminal records so it isnt surprising when they are not tossed out they feel free to victimize citizens.
Sanctuary cities in violation of federal law are fine.
Sanctuary counties in violation of state law are an abomination.
Liberals are insane.
Hold the City liable for the death hang the killer by his neck until he is dead then have the entire City Council charged as aiding and abetting the killer allow the family to sue the City and all those involved its time for all Sanctuary Cities to be held liable for all crimes commited by illegal aliens
@Petercat: If you are talking about Virginia, the legislators are in violation of their States constitution, and the US constitution. NY is just another Democrat created mess.
