Brooklyn, NY – “The senseless murder of Daniel Enriquez on a Q Train this weekend — in broad daylight — strikes fear in the hearts of even the most hardened New Yorkers. 

“It’s the latest infuriating example of how far New York City has fallen since the de Blasio Administration and Democrat-led state legislature began dismantling the effective, conservative crime fighting strategies of Governor George Pataki and Mayors Rudy Giuliani and Mike Bloomberg. 

“This is what happens when Broken Windows policing is abandoned; when police presence is reduced; when no-cash-bail is enacted, and when undercover officers are outlawed. This is what happens when criminals are given priority over crime victims. 

“Mayor Eric Adams has pledged to put more police officers on subway platforms and moving trains, but we wonder, frankly, whether he has enough officers at this point to pull that off.  He must lead the effort to return the NYPD to effective personnel levels. 

“We also need to elect a Republican governor this year who can stand up to a State Legislature that’s been infected by the dangerous academic movement called wokeism. It doesn’t work. All wokeism does is give us more crime victims to memorialize. We mourn Mr. Enriquez and his family, and pray that his murder does not go unanswered. The current situation has to change.”
