Suspected illegal immigrants accused of assaulting NYPD officers in Times Square were arrested in Phoenix, Arizona, Monday night. District Attorney Alvin Bragg faced backlash for releasing five out of the 12 suspects without bail.
The identities of the suspects arrested have not yet been released.
On Tuesday Senate candidate, Sheriff Mark Lamb of Pinal County congratulated ICE on their work capturing the suspected perpetrators in the attack “so let’s hope they send them back to where they belong, this is unacceptable. We got to continue to send a message we aren’t going to tolerate this kind of behavior from anybody let alone people that are here in this country illegally. Great job ICE. Great picking them up in Phoenix. To my brothers in blue in New York we stand with you” he said.

Sheriff Mark Lamb has been an outspoken critic of the Biden administration’s handling of the ongoing border crisis.
On a recent appearance of Fox Business (FBN) Sheriff Mark Lamb told Fox anchor Maria Bartiromo “They always talk about the root causes. They are the root causes. Under President Trump we saw 400,000 apprehensions in one year. Now we’re seeing 300,000 apprehensions every month. These numbers are unsustainable. The only way we’re going to stop it based on what I see and the intentionality of what this administration has done is replace them. Which is why I’m running for the U.S. Senate.” He goes on “I love being the sheriff, but I can only protect my herd from the wolves for so long. At some point I got to go hunt those wolves and that’s why I’m taking my fight to the U.S. Senate.”
