92-Year-Old Woman Raped, Murdered After NYC Sanctuary Policy Sets Criminal Free

Sandy Malone

ICE said that 92-year-old Maria Fuentes was murdered by an illegal immigrant with a criminal history named Reeaz Khan.

Queens, NY – Federal officials said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s “sanctuary city” policy is to blame for the brutal murder of a 92-year-old woman at the hands of an illegal immigrant in Queens on Jan. 6.

“Clearly the politicians care more about criminal illegal aliens than the citizens they are elected to serve and protect,” U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) said in a statement, The Washington Times reported.

Reeaz Khan, who is an illegal immigrant from Guyana, was arrested on Nov. 27, 2019 after he attacked his father in their South Richmond home, the New York Post reported.

Khan’s 41-year-old father had to be hospitalized after his son used a broken ceramic mug to slash his father’s arm and chest.

Court records showed that Khan was charged with misdemeanor assault, criminal possession of a weapon, and harassment, the New York Post reported.

The records also showed that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents placed a detainer request on him the day he was arrested.

However, because of New York’s new bail laws and the mayor’s liberal policies, Khan was released without bail after the judge issued a temporary order of protection for his father, the New York Post reported.

Only six weeks passed before Khan allegedly sexually assaulted and strangled 92-year-old Maria Fuentes.

“It was a deadly choice to release a man on an active ICE detainer back onto the streets after his first arrest included assault and weapon charges, and he now faces new charges, including murder,” Thomas Decker, ICE’s New York field-office director of enforcement and removal operations, said.

“New York City’s sanctuary policies continue to threaten the safety of all residents of the five boroughs as they repeatedly protect criminal aliens who show little regard for the laws of this nation,” Decker added.

Court papers said the elderly woman was found lying in the freezing weather about two hours after she was attacked by Khan, the New York Post reported.

Fuentes died from injuries that included rib fractures and a broken spine at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center.

Investigators found surveillance video that showed the before and after of the attack and shared it with the public to identify Fuentes’ murderer, the New York Post reported.

Khan’s brother was one of multiple people who identified the suspect for police.

Assistant District Attorney Joseph Grasso said that after Khan was taken into custody, he told detectives that he had found his victim lying on the ground, the New York Post reported.

The 21 year old said he was trying to help Fuentes when he “fell down, his belt broke, his pants fell down and his penis fell near her vagina,” Grasso said.

“Defendant then stated that he did lift up her skirt and tried to put his penis inside of her,” the prosecutor added.

Khan was charged with two counts each of second-degree murder and first-degree sexual abuse, according to the New York Post.

“Maria Fuertes’ blood is on Mayor de Blasio’s hands,” a retired New York Police Department (NYPD) detective said.

He said “it was only a matter of time before this would happen” with the city’s polices regarding ICE detainers, the New York Post reported.

The mayor’s sanctuary policy only allows NYPD to turn over illegal immigrants to ICE if they’ve been convicted of “serious or violent felonies.”

NYPD released a statement that said they had never received the ICE detainer for Khan, the New York Post reported.

However, ICE Spokeswoman Rachael Yong Yow said the agency had a fax confirmation receipt that proved a detainer request had been sent to NYPD’s Queens Central Booking at 7:41 a.m. on Nov. 27.

A spokeswoman for de Blasio expressed the mayor’s sympathies and chastised President Donald Trump’s administration for “politicizing this tragedy,” the New York Post reported.

Blood on the hands of Democratic or "progressive" politicians. I thought being progressive had to do with forward-thinking and the safety and well-being of people in our country. Apparently, that only applies to illegal aliens, criminals and other liberals.

More people are raped and/or murdered by cops than illegal immigrants. Everyone here support banning cops and punishing any police sanctuaries that continue to maintain a police force?

“Politicizing this Tragedy,” was accomplished the minute that the Governor and Mayor of New York decided to allow criminals to walk free, while law abiding citizens were lead to slaughter.

Failing to protect the citizens of New York from scum like this should cost the Governor and Mayor their jobs, pension and healthcare.

With the possibility of losing everything these Politicians get only after ONE TERM, will they work to protect their constituents from scum like this POS who could only prey on a 92 year old woman.

I hope the heirs of the victim: Step #1: Sue de Blasio and NYC into bankruptcy and Step #2: I defer to @Excalibr4 for punitive.

The guy admits to falling and on his way down his belt buckle “accidentally” opens, his pants “accidentally” unzip, they they “accidentally” fall down, and his penis “accidentally” flies out of his underwear and lands next to the victim.

That’s this rocket scientists story? Are they even sure he’s an illegal alien and not a card carrying member of the democratic party?

This sounds like a William Jefferson Clinton story if ever I’ve heard one! Honestly, who in the hell rapes and murders a nice 92 year old lady? Evil does, pure evil, and the Mayor’s policies and lame attempts at blame shifting when this woman’s death lays squarely at his feet.

It is political you liberal idiot. All you do called progressives care about is these illegals. Why must the criminal element be allowed to get away with crimes? There are good honest families who want to come here to better themselves and we should help. But WHY are the criminals allowed to stay? Get rid of these sanctuary cities who only allow this for the money they get from the Federal Gov for just being a sanctuary City.

I can honestly say this with every fiber of my being the mayor needs to lay his head down tonight and thank Jesus Christ God almighty that that woman was not one of my family members. Family members of victims need to go straight to the original calls in this case it was the mayor and then the rapist.

Hope you're all happy in NEW YORK!!!!! You all need to IMMEDIATELY RESIGN from Office and go away forever. That poor family of the 92 year old should sue the shit out of all of you, who voted for this absurd law! The Kingpin Mayor should be at the forefront of the lawsuit too! "YOU PEOPLE" are protecting someone who violates the law more than you did a 92 year old resident, who probably didn't ever do anything wrong in life! You should all resign, every one of you! So sick of all of you and your ridiculous left wing ways of doing things anymore. I can't wait till November, when America speaks!

Gtfo with this being Trumps fault. This is outrageous! I hope she had family and they sue the shit out of the city for their ridiculous policies. Let ICE deport the criminals. Start caring more about the citizens safety then the criminal illegals.

Criminal de Blasio should be put in jail.

With these crazy laws and crazy people, as a frequent tourist to New York, I’ll no longer travel there until the laws change.

How about a law that doubles the jail time for illegals? If you’re an illegal and murder someone, how about a mandatory death penalty? How about if you murder someone, mandatory death penalty?
