NY Gov Andrew Cuomo has pardoned 29 illegal aliens including two who were sent to prison over murder charges. This is just further proof that Democrats have abandoned Americans and their safety in order to shield criminal illegal aliens.
You would think that illegal aliens now make up the base of the Democratic party, who will now try for amnesty of all illegals, starting with DACA. The total number of illegal aliens could be as high as 35 million according to a recent study.
And each and every one of them will get rights that are denied to you and me.
In this vein, I present you Andrew Cuomo. The Democrat governor of New York gave clemency to 29 convicts at the end of last year, including, according to The New York Times, “22 immigrants who were at risk of deportation or blocked from citizenship because of criminal convictions.”
“While President Trump shuts down the federal government over his obsession with keeping immigrants out, New York stands strong in our support for immigrant communities,” Cuomo said in a statement.
In the piece, The Times notes that those pardoned were “mostly convicted on nonviolent drug crimes.” Fair enough. See if this qualifies as a “minor drug crime” to you:
“The recipients of Mr. Cuomo’s commutations included Roy Bolus, 49, who was sentenced to 75 years to life for his secondary role in a drug deal that ended in the deaths of two men. Mr. Bolus is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in prison.”
“You meet him and say, ‘Why is this man in prison after 30 years for a crime he committed when he was 18?’” Steve Zeidman, professor and director of the criminal defense clinic at the City University of New York School of Law and one of the men who helped Bolus with his application, said.
“The governor also commuted the sentence of Michael Crawford, 38, who served 20 years of a 22-to-life sentence after being convicted at age 17 of shooting an individual who stole concert tickets from him in Buffalo in 1999,” the New York Post reported.
