The Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance is asking Governor Andrew Cuomo to reverse his bail reform laws in an effort to curb looting on the streets, CBS2’s Marcia Kramer reported exclusively on Wednesday.

“I want the office and I believe it would be appropriate to join 49 other states to eliminate cash bail and to have the judge, however, have the ability to detain someone when there is a clear risk of re-offense,” Vance told CBS2.

Vance continued, “This is about people who are taking advantage of this moment when people want to come out and protest peacefully. I’m calling for more judicial discretion.”

Because of the state’s no cash bail laws, suspects are arrested and for many crimes including stalking, grand larceny, assault as a hate crime, and second-degree manslaughter,  the majority of them can be released without paying bail, NYPD Chief of Department Terrence Monahan said Tuesday.

The New York Police Department has expressed concern over the lax laws, saying that most of the suspects they’ve arrested in the violence and looting sprees in the aftermath of the tragic death of George Floyd are back on the streets the next day.

On Tuesday, Monahan told the New York Post that he brought concerns to Vance about the laws. However, there was nothing Vance could do, he told Monahan.

Just The News put together a terrifying report on the announcement by officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations. Data released Monday unearthed that the agency arrested more than 130 sex offenders illegally present in the United States in a nationwide campaign.

From Oct. 22 through Nov. 4, law enforcement arrested 138 noncitizens, “including some with an executable final order of removal,” ICE wrote in a statement about the operation.

“Many of those arrested were described as citizens of Mexico who were convicted of child sex crimes. Offenders’ published ages ranged from 24 to 65″ adds Just The News.

“These sex offenders will be removed from the U.S., ending and impeding their ability to further victimize residents,” said Salt Lake City ICE official Michael Bernacke.

Five noncitizen sex offenders were apprehended in the Salt Lake City area, 21 were arrested in the Los Angeles area, five in the Seattle area and 15 in the San Francisco area.

ICE’s removal office conducted 3,415 arrests of noncitizens for sexual assaults last fiscal year, authorities said.
