Five criminal aliens have been arrested over the course of one week in New York City. What makes their arrests significant is that each criminal had been released by sanctuary jurisdictions in the city, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement.

In a news release, ICE said that Enforcement Removal Operations (ERO) officials had previously placed detainers on each of the criminal aliens, prior to their release from custody.

“These individuals are criminal aliens who were released back into our neighborhoods, posing an increased risk to New York residents,” ERO New York Field Office Director Thomas Decker said in the release.

“Because of the unnecessary threat being imposed by the city’s decision to not honor ICE detainers, ICE remains committed, in the interest of public safety and national security, to welcoming changes to current New York City policies and strengthening its relationship with local law enforcement.”

Thomas D. Homan, acting head of ICE, has said that in harboring criminal illegal aliens, sanctuary cities are boosting crime. In refusing to detain criminals, sanctuary cities put them back on the street where they “will re-offend,” and ICE agents will then be forced to track them down, which is a dangerous endeavor.

“Mayor De Blasio and the NYPD’s leadership have failed to heed the warning that refusing to cooperate with federal immigration officials when it comes to criminals and suspected terrorists would have consequences beyond making our City less safe,” said Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association in New York City, via a Facebook post.

“They have placed officers in an impossible Catch-22: between obeying the directives and orders of their superiors and elected officials on one hand, and the obligation they feel to follow the direction of the law and to cooperate with federal immigration officials on the other.”

ICE reports the following about the criminals arrested:
