Since the death of George Floyd on May 25, the New York Police Department has had to repair hundreds of cars from damage inflicted by rioters across the city — 14 of the cars were set on fire and totaled.

With 14 totaled, seven are still being repaired, and the remaining cars have already been serviced and returned to the department. The repairs cost New York City taxpayers nearly $1 million.

Despite the violence towards police excallating, the NYC Comptroller urged Mayor Bill de Blasio To Cut Over $1B In NYPD Funding.

“Shootings were up 130% in the city for the month of June, according to the NYPD,” as reported by the Daily Caller.

The weeks of rioting have resulted in hundreds of cars being vandalized, burned, and smashed. The real losers in the situation seem to be the New York taxpayers.

DHS protects ‘privacy’ of migrants on terror watchlist

Fox News reporter Bill Melugin filed a Freedom of Information Act request that sought the nationalities of individuals on the terror watchlist who entered the United States illegally. No more identifying information such as their names or location were requested; nonetheless, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) responded that the right to ‘privacy’ of the migrants on the watchlist outweighs the public’s right to know.

The denial of the request occurred on the same day that at least one illegal immigrant reportedly on the terror watchlist was apprehended while attempting to infiltrate the Quantico Marine Corps base in Virginia, reports Just The News.

“The privacy interests of the individuals in the records you have requested outweigh any minimal public interest in disclosure of the information,” the department told Melugin in a letter, he wrote in a post on X. “Any private interest you may have in that information does not factor into the aforementioned balancing test.”

Melugin pushed back on the rejection in a post to social media on Thursday, defending his request for the information and claiming that most of the rejection had nothing to do with what he was asking for. He also vowed to appeal the decision.

“I did not ask for any names, IDs, addresses, anything that would breach privacy, nor did I ask for any law enforcement sensitive information,” Melugin said. “I simply requested *only* the nationalities of people arrested on the list, so the public can have an understanding of where in the world they are coming from.”

Just The News adds that the border crisis and influx of illegal migrants has resulted in at least 736 known or suspected terrorists being released into the country in fiscal year 2023. In this fiscal year, at least 210 known or suspected terrorists have been apprehended and then released into the country as of March 22.
