Lindsey Graham Demands Answers from DOJ and DHS on Illegal Migrants Brazen NYC Cop Attack

Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina has raised concerns about the actions of the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security regarding the release of illegal migrants in New York City who attacked police officers. He sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, seeking answers about whether the perpetrators will be deported and what actions the agencies will take in response to the attack.

The move comes after a group of illegal migrants attacked two New York City police officers near Times Square and were later released without bail. Surveillance footage showed the officers confronting the group before a scuffle broke out and the suspects kicked the officers before fleeing the scene. The suspects were soon arrested, but were later released without bail.

The suspects have been identified as Darwin Andres Gomez Izquiel, Kelvin Servat Arocha, Wilson Juarez, Jhoan Boada, and Yorman Reveron. Following their release, one of the suspects, Jhoan Boada, made a provocative gesture to news cameras as he left the precinct station.

The incident has raised concerns about the handling of illegal migrants involved in violent crimes. However, the Justice Department declined to comment further on the issue, and the Department of Homeland Security did not respond to requests for comment on the matter.

It remains to be seen how the agencies will address the situation and whether the suspects will be deported. The incident has also prompted discussions about potential impeachment proceedings against Secretary Mayorkas. The House Homeland Security Committee has cleared a resolution for his impeachment, adding to the political complexity of the situation.

As the investigation into the incident continues, questions remain about the broader implications of the illegal migration crisis and the potential impact on law enforcement and public safety.

In conclusion, the attack near Times Square has brought attention to the broader issue of illegal migration and the challenges it poses to law enforcement and public safety, as well as the responsibilities of federal agencies in addressing such incidents.
