Report: Criminal Migrant Gangs Target NYC to Commit Crimes Then Go to Florida to Spend the Money

Criminal Illegal immigrant gangs target New York City to commit their crimes, knowing they will get away with it, and then head to Florida to spend the money, according to NYC law enforcement sources. NYPD Detectives reportedly told CNN’s Chief Law Enforcement and Intelligence analyst John Miller that the criminal gangs return to the sanctuary city to commit more crimes because they know if they try it in Florida they’ll “go to jail.”

A group of illegal aliens assaulted two NYPD officers in Times Square on Saturday and were quickly released without bail back on to the streets. Viral video footage shows a verbal confrontation between the illegals and the officers that quickly escalates to violence. The criminal gang attacked the the outnumbered officers as they were trying to restrain one of the suspects, beating and kicking the officers while they were wrestling on the ground.

The perpetrators were identified as 19-year-old Darwin Andres Gomez-Izquiel, 19-year-old Kelvin Servita Arocha, 22-year-old Jhoan Boada and 21-year-old Wilson Juarez. Three other suspects reportedly remain at large.

According to Miller, who formerly served as the NYPD’s Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence & Counterterrorism, the crew have only been in the country for a couple of months and have already achieved extensive rap sheets that include robbery and grand larceny.

The video spurred outrage online and a subsequent images of Boada flipping off the media after he was sprung from jail prompted even more outrage.

Miller was asked to react to a a clip of Democrat New York Governor Kathy Hochul taking an uncharacteristically tough stance on illegal immigration.

“To hear her talk about that, it is also directly related to the fact that these were police officers. Does that have any impact? Does that change anything?” CNN anchor Erica Hill asked.

“Well, it’s so complicated because, you know, you’re a New Yorker. You move through the city every day as I do. We see these people. We touch these people. They’re out looking for work. They’re delivering our food. They’re at the gas stations and the car wash,”  Miller began. “These are people who came in waves, you know, 170,000 probably to New York City. But within that group, this hard-working, you know, throngs of people in search of hope and a better life, there is this one percent you know, criminal element that looks at a different opportunity here,” he added.

“These individuals, I went over their rap sheets yesterday. Multiple charges. Grand larceny, robbery, attempted robbery, grand larceny, grand larceny,” Miller continued. “This particular crew operated on mopeds and scooters. They were doing organized retail theft. They were doing snatches on the street, iPhones, iPads, clothing, so on and so forth. One of them that they are still seeking has 10 charges in one day because he’s part of a pattern that’s been going on. And I’m looking at the dates that their arrests started, which is probably close to when they got here. They’ve only been here a couple of months.”

What the law enforcement analyst said next prompted a stunned reaction from Hill.

“So what the detectives are telling me is, they have crews here that operate in New York, do all their stealing, then go to Florida to spend the money and then come back,” Miller explained. “I’m like, ‘Why don’t they just stay and steal in Florida?’ They said, ‘Because there you go to jail.’”

Oh!” Hill responded.

After a few seconds of stunned silence,  co-host Phil Mattingly jumped in to say, “fascinating.”
