It’s not just border states and its citizens that suffer greatly from President Joe Biden’s open border policies; dangerous illegal migrants are settling throughout the country. Last week U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents (ICE) arrested foreign nationals in states far from the border; they are wanted for violent crimes including sex offenders and murderers.
The Center Square reports the Chicago division of ICE arrested a Bosnian citizen with an active criminal arrest warrant issued by the Wyandotte County, Kansas, District Court for second-degree murder.
Days later, the New York City division agents arrested a 56-year-old “international fugitive wanted in Guatemala for aggravated rape in a continuous manner and with special aggravating circumstances” ICE said. The man was originally arrested in 2014 in Texas and had an arrest warrant from Guatemalan officials “for aggravated rape in a continuous manner and with special aggravating circumstances.” ICE said “on an unknown date and at an unknown location” he unlawfully re-entered the United States.
Early last week, the Baltimore division agents apprehended an Eritrean national in Washington, D.C. He was wanted for convictions in 2017 for sex crimes and sexual abuse committed against a minor, third degree sex offense and incest in Montgomery County, Maryland. He was arrested after having lived in the U.S. for 25 years.
The amount of costly resources devoted to a single individual magnifies how U.S. citizens suffer. The case of the caught Bosnian criminal is just one example:
The deportation officer assigned to the U.S. Marshals Service’s Kansas Fugitive Apprehension Task Force (KFATF), with the assistance of Kansas City Crime Stoppers, helped identify and arrest the Bosnian. Kansas City Crime Stoppers received a tip that he was believed to be living in the local area. The agents responded and deployed a surveillance team to the location. At one point, they initiated a lockdown because the Bosnian barricaded himself inside his residence. Agents then worked with a Kansas City Police Tactical Team to successfully breach the residence and apprehend him without further incident. He remains in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.

NYC Mayor Adams’ budget cuts slash total number of police and education funds
“No city should be left to handle a national humanitarian crisis largely on its own, and without the significant and timely support we need from Washington, D.C., today’s budget will only be the beginning,” said New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams about his decision to make budget cuts as a result of the overwhelming migrant crisis.
However, those who will suffer from budget cuts to the city’s services to offset the cost of dealing with the ever-increasing number of migrants are those that are in place to make the city better.
“The cuts will see police freeze hiring and bring the total number of police officers below 30,000. It would further slash the education budget by $1 billion over two years and affect a litany of other agencies” reports Just The News.
Albeit, Adams admitted: “In all my time in government, this is probably one of the most painful exercises I’ve gone through.” More than 110,000 migrants have arrived in New York City over the past year, including roughly 13,000 sent from Texas by GOP Governor Greg Abbott as part of his ongoing bussing plan to send new arrivals to the U.S. to sanctuary cities.
However, similar to other leaders of sanctuary cities, Adams is unwilling to put his money where his mouth is. In September, Adams warned that the crisis would “destroy New York City” and begged the federal government to pay for his mess.
“I’m gonna tell you something, New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this,” Adams said at the time. “The federal government needs to do its job. We need the federal government, the Congress members, the Senate and the president to do their job: close the borders,” said Adams’ advisor Ingrid Lewis Martin insisted in early October. “And until you close the borders, you need to come on with a full-on decompression strategy where you can take all of our migrants and move them through our 50 states.”
