New York City is no sanctuary for residents: Illegal immigrant arrested six times in two months

Two months ago, a Venezuelan national arrived in the sanctuary city of New York City. Since then, he has been arrested six times for 14 separate violent offenses.

Daniel Hernandez Martinez, 29, of Venezuela, arrived in New York City on June 27 from the United States-Mexico border, as reported by the New York Post. He allegedly robbed a Costco in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, the very next day, as Breitbart News reported.

Martinez was charged with petty theft and, due to New York's bail reform law, was released from police detention without having to post bail.

The following week, Martinez is alleged to have robbed a Duane Reade in Manhattan's Columbus Circle and attempted to stab a security officer with a large knife while shoplifting at a different Duane Reade location.

Martinez was then charged with "menacing" and released again without bail.

On July 31, Martinez allegedly assaulted 52-year-old freelance journalist Jeffrey Bradac, who had just finished interviewing Martinez for his social media accounts. Bradac, who has been documenting illegal immigration in the city, claims he was assaulted with a bicycle tire by Martinez.

After evading capture at first, Martinez was apprehended by police after Bradac saw him outside the Row Hotel, where Mayor Eric Adams (D) has housed thousands of refugees.

Martinez was arrested less than a month later for allegedly assaulting a woman he did not know in Midtown West, Manhattan; grabbing her by the hair, dragging her across the ground, kicking her, and breaking her mobile phone.

Martinez was charged with assault, criminal damage, weapon possession, and threatening. Consequently, he was granted supervised parole from prison.

Three days after the assault, Martinez was arrested again for allegedly "menacing" a stranger with a chain, and four days later, he was arrested for allegedly stealing bicycles from Times Square.

Martinez requested medical assistance during his most recent detention and was transported to a nearby hospital. Martinez was subsequently accused of attacking a police officer who was attempting to change his handcuffs by kicking and stamping on his feet.

Martinez was accused of assaulting a law enforcement officer. Although prosecutors requested a higher bail amount, the magistrate set Martinez's bail at $5,000. Since then, he has been sent to Rikers Island.

Since the beginning of last year's spring, New York City has seen the arrival of more than 100,000 border crossers and illegal aliens, something that has been a contentious issue for the Biden administration.

In January, four migrants were accused of swiping thousands of dollars' worth of merchandise from a Macy's department store on Long Island, New York. Some had been living for free in migrant accommodations. All had recently arrived in the state.
