New York Deploys 750 National Guard To NYC Subway System

New York State has deployed 750 National Guard and 250 MTA to NYC’s subway system to combat rampant crime and violence. Governor Kathy Hochul announced the measure as part of a multi-step plan to help NYC fight against criminality. A notable absence from Hochul’s press conference was NYC Mayor Eric Adams. Hochul said she had spoken to the mayor about the measure, and he was on board.

The governor wants to empower judges to use their discretion to impose bail on violent offenders to eliminate the catch-and-release policy that has been implemented recently. This policy led to the freeing of several “migrants” who attacked NYPD officers in Times Square. These so-called migrants fled the state soon after their release from jail, which sparked a nationwide manhunt.

One obvious problem with crime in NYC and the rest of the Empire State is the city and state’s sanctuary status. Neither Hochul nor Eric Adams has announced any plans to reverse this status, although they have both complained about the results of it.
