“He’s been wreaking havoc,” a cop with more than 20 years on the job said, according to the New York Post.
“This is not an isolated incident. These migrants are getting arrested quite often here, and we really don’t know who they are. They really don’t have ID. They’re not being vetted properly, but some of them are committing some of the most violent crimes here.”
Martinez has currently been sent to Rikers Island with bail listed at $5,000 in his growing list of crimes.

"The housing of migrants has generated tension in a number of communities. Residents of Chicago protested and took legal action to prevent the city from housing migrants in a closed-down high school and two other locations on the South Side of the city in May," the Daily Caller reported.
"In New York, students and parents protested the decision by city officials to use school gyms to house migrants heading to New York City, which reportedly is considering the use of as many as 20 such facilities across the five boroughs of the city. The city is expecting as many as 10,000 migrants," it added.
NYC Mayor Eric Adams (D) has placed blame on both the Biden administration and Republican governors who have bused migrants from border states to New York City.
The numbers are a tiny fraction of the number of illegal immigrants passing through the southern border into states like Texas and Arizona left to largely fend for themselves under Biden's border policies.
The latest crime spree may help show the need to better protect the border as improperly vetted migrants are in some cases involved in serious criminal actions.
