It seems that radical, liberal politicians in New York, including Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Mayor Bill de Blasio and the Democrat-led State Legislature - are all determined to ensure that New York claim the title of “Most Dangerous State” for its citizens. Between the new Bail Reform Law and New York City’s sanctuary law, the Democrat leaders of this state have made it one of the most perilous environments in the country.
Let’s start with the disastrous Bail Reform Law. Supported by liberal New York Democrats, including my opponent Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, this legislation needlessly and recklessly puts all New York residents at risk. We’re only a few weeks into 2020 - mere weeks after the law went into effect - and already we’ve seen tragic results.
Equally as dangerous is the establishment of Sanctuary Cities - local jurisdictions that obstruct Federal immigration enforcement and shield criminals, by refusing to comply with detainer requests from Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Sanctuary Cities continue to be supported by radical socialist Democrats whose misguided policies seek to protect the lives of criminal aliens over the lives of innocent Americans.
All New Yorkers should be outraged. New Yorkers have a critical opportunity in the 2020 elections to send a strong message that putting Americans in harm’s way is not acceptable.
