NYC’s Quality of Life Deteriorates Amidst Rising Migrant Crime, Warns Former NYPD Commissioner

Former NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly has issued a stark warning about the deteriorating quality of life in New York City, attributing a significant portion of the decline to rising migrant crime. Notorious gangs such as Venezuela’s Tren de Aragua and El Salvador’s MS-13, described by retired FBI Assistant Director Chris Swecker as “prison-spawned gangs,” are posing a serious threat to American cities. Swecker goes as far as labeling them the “most dangerous gangs on the planet,” speculating that Latin American countries are intentionally emptying their prisons. These gang leaders, emerging from the depths of South American prisons, are establishing crime rings within the United States.

While law enforcement officials are sounding the alarm about the collapse of public safety, left-wing politicians are denying the existence of a problem. Ana Maria Archila, co-director of New York’s Working Families Party, attributes the public’s concerns to racism and xenophobia rather than acknowledging the reality of the situation. However, the evidence of public safety spiraling downward is undeniable. Instances of migrants assaulting police officers in Times Square, running prostitution rings, robbing pedestrians on mopeds, and engaging in shoplifting and looting are becoming increasingly common. Tragically, a migrant who recently left New York has been arrested for the murder of Georgia nursing student Laken Riley.

The open borders policy implemented by President Biden is allowing the worst criminals to enter the country. Mayor Adams, when questioned about stabbing incidents and violence against police officers at the Randall’s Island shelter, downplayed the seriousness of the threat by stating that even the most peaceful person would be irritated when confined with 3,000 people. This response fails to acknowledge the gravity of the situation. New York’s misguided “sanctuary city” policy exacerbates the danger by preventing the NYPD from cooperating with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to determine the appropriate course of action for arrested migrants.

Mayor Adams has now expressed the need to change the sanctuary status, allowing ICE to pick up and deport migrants who commit felonies. This is not the first time he has made such a statement, and it is imperative that action follows his words. One such case that highlights the consequences of this policy is that of Jose Antonio Ibarra, a 26-year-old Venezuelan who entered the United States illegally in September 2022. Despite being arrested once during his time in New York, he was not detained. Ibarra is now charged with the murder of Laken Riley, and Swecker suggests that this is not an isolated incident but rather the actions of someone with a history of criminal behavior.

The resurgence of the vicious MS-13 gang, which may potentially join forces with Tren de Aragua, further compounds the threat. In 2016 and 2017, MS-13 gang members brutally hacked and beheaded four teenagers on Long Island using machetes, knives, and a chisel. The left may deny the existence of migrant crime, but a recent Pew Research Center report reveals that 57% of Americans believe the influx of migrants is leading to an increase in crime.

Mayor Adams recently boasted about the safety of Times Square, but the reality contradicts his claims. Just two days prior, a teenager visiting the iconic location for the first time was attacked and stabbed by a gang of masked assailants, including several migrants. These incidents highlight the significant danger posed by migrant gangs. Additionally, sex trafficking remains a pervasive scourge, with women leaving shelters in the evening to be picked up by cars, leaving their children behind. Homeland Security Investigations Deputy Agent in Charge Darren McCormack confirms that this is happening across all five boroughs of New York City.

  1. As a blog commenter, I would like to share a personal example that relates to the issue of rising migrant crime and its impact on the quality of life in a city.

    In my hometown, there has been a noticeable increase in crime rates over the past few years, coinciding with an influx of migrants from neighboring countries. While it is important to acknowledge that not all migrants are involved in criminal activities, there has been a concerning trend where a significant portion of the crimes committed are attributed to individuals who have
