Shows the mentality of what we have living in Queens and why Queens and especially SE Queens is a shit hole. About 30 Richmond Hill Residents were shouting and trying to stop Federal agents from arresting Hardat Sampat from Guyana.
Let’s look at the background of Sampat, the fine upstanding illegal citizen that he is.
Sampat, five years ago, was charged with second-degree burglary and agreed to be deported to Guyana when he was in Florida prison facing ASSAULT CHARGES, but came back to the USA ILLEGALLY. Then several weeks ago, he was arrested for burglarizing a home in Rockaway and also vandalized the apartment.
And as one person stated, “He’s a loving father, uncle, son” and he may well be, but he also is here illegally and committed crimes, so yes, he deserve to be shipped out of the country.
Figures, he would end up in SE Queens and figure 30 Richmond Hill residents would attempt to block his arrest AND that is why Queens and SE Queens is the way it is. I mean look at the place behind Melissa Rivera, a friend of Sampat. Old couch sitting out in front with crap on it and cheap crappy doors on the place with no security doors, typical SE Queens ghetto crap. And I am sure if the camera zoomed back, you would see the absence of any grass or trees and garbage and litter all over.
SE Queens (and Richmond Hill), what a shit hole it has become. Welcome to third world nation. Surprisingly deBlasio, Tit James and Melinda Katz did not issue a statement sticking up for the criminal. BUT even those three stooges know better with the evidence and background of Sampat to act all stupid progressive liberal.
My family came to this country LEGALLY, some of you new immigrants, try that as well or risk your asses being hauled off.
From The Daily News:
Tensions were high around 10 a.m. on 112th St. near 101st Ave. in Richmond Hill. More than 30 residents were shouting and trying desperately to keep the feds from arresting Hardat Sampat, who is from Guyana.
But the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, who swooped in while driving unmarked cars, boxed in Sampat on the one-way street as the driver of the car in which he was riding tried to get away, witnesses said.
“Why me?” Sampat’s sister wailed, according to family friend Melissa Rivera, 22.
The agents were all business.
“They didn’t even look her way,” Rivera said. “They didn’t care. This is what Trump is doing.”
ICE agents took Sampat, 35, to Manhattan Federal Court for processing, where he was expected to be sent to an immigration facility in New Jersey, relatives said. Sampat will be held until at least June 15 and then authorities will decide whether to release or deport him, his sister said. Federal officials confirmed the arrest late Tuesday, saying that Sampat was busted by ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations officers.
“He had previously been released from the custody of the New York Department of Correction with an active detainer in place,” ICE spokeswoman Rachael Yong Yow said in a statement.
Police arrested Sampat weeks ago for burglarizing the Rockaways home of a 37-year-old woman he knew on April 9 and on April 30. During the second alleged break-in, he vandalized the apartment by spraying white paint on the walls and furniture, according to court papers.
Relatives said Sampat was on his way to Queens Criminal Court on Tuesday for a scheduled appearance on the burglary charges when ICE agents collared him.
Video taken at the tense scene showed neighbors standing in the one-way street blocking a caravan of federal vehicles.
“You don’t know what kind of heartbreak it is to see this,” one woman is heard saying about Sampat’s arrest.
“I understand,” an ICE agent replied.
“No you don’t; you say you understand,” another woman said.
Facing the growing crowd and blocked in by a car owned by one Sampat’s relatives, ICE agents called for backup. NYPD cops were diverted to the corner for crowd control, but no additional arrests were made.
In February, Police Commissioner James O’Neill issued a defiant memo saying NYPD officers would not assist with Trump’s directive to round up undocumented immigrants or enforce administrative warrants issued by federal immigration officials to pick up people here illegally.
As of April 7, the last time the information was available, the NYPD hadn’t honored any of the 130 detainer requests they’d received from the feds this year. But Sampat was charged with second-degree burglary, one of the 170 felony offenses for which, if arrested, undocumented immigrants could face deportation.
Sampat agreed to be deported to Guyana while he was in a Florida prison facing assault charges about five years ago, but came back to the U.S. illegally to be with his family, neighbors said.
Rivera said Sampat had proof that he was in Florida when one of the burglaries took place — and wanted his day in court.
“He’s a loving father, uncle, son,” she said. “It’s not right. They just took him from his family.”
