The man accused of assaulting and murdering a 92-year-old woman is believed to be in the country illegally.

Reeaz Khan, a 21-year-old Guyanese national, is believed to be behind the brutal slaying of Maria Fuertes in Richmond Hill.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said the NYPD released Khan in November after he attacked his father with a broken coffee cup, ignoring a federal request to turn him over for deportation.

The officials blamed New York’s sanctuary city policies for Fuertes’ rape and murder. Under the policy, the city only hands over undocumented people convicted of a violent crime.

“Clearly the politicians care more about criminal illegal aliens than the citizens they are elected to serve and protect,” Thomas Decker, an ICE field office director, told the Daily News.

City Hall and the NYPD have said a detainer was not issued for Khan.

A spokesperson for Mayor de Blasio told WABC: “If Mr. Khan is convicted, the city will cooperate with federal officials in accordance with local law. It is shameful that the Trump Administration is politicizing this tragedy.”

ICE said there’s a fax confirmation receipt showing a detainer request was made.

Khan is awaiting trial at Rikers Island. He allegedly followed Fuertes as she was picking up recyclables on Jan. 6, throwing her to the ground before  assaulting and attacking her.


  1. Only an uprising and a revolution against these filthy murderous traitorous America hating DemonRats will stop this madness ,these leftist sewer rats have turned this once great country of ours into a third world hell hole,these traitors and gangsters need to be put on trial for high treason and when found guilty hang them from the gallows all of them

  2. Immigrants as a group are more law-abiding than legal residents and citizens. So I guess this illegal immigrant murderer (assuming he is guilty) is stealing the job of a real American.
