A Bosnian illegal immigrant who assaulted New York police officers two years ago has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.
U.S. District Judge Rachel P. Kovner sentenced Dzenan Camovic on Wednesday in the case that included stabbing and shooting officers.

"Today's 30-year sentence, along with Camovic's removal from the United States, guarantees the community will be protected from his hate-filled ideology and actions," said Breon Peace, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York.
"We will never stop working to protect the safety of our brave law enforcement officers and community from those who would do them harm," she added.

The sentencing brings a conclusion to the two-year-long case that involved both the New York Police Department and the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force.
The sentencing also comes as the nation continues to grow concerned over the issue of illegal immigration as a result of the open border policies of Democrats under President Joe Biden.
