A granddaughter of the 92-year-old Queens woman who was raped and murdered last month by an illegal immigrant spoke at a White House event on border security Friday — and slammed New York’s city’s sanctuary city policy.
Daria Ortiz, one of victim Maria Fuertes’ grandchildren, spoke at the invitation of President Trump, who also delivered remarks on border security to members of the National Border Patrol Council, the union repping Border Patrol agents.
“I am the granddaughter of the 92-year-old woman who was raped and murdered in Queens. She raised her grandchildren while working hard to give us a future. Unfortunately, my grandmother had to be example of why something like this, [these] horrific crimes should never happen,” an emotional Ortiz said in the South Court Auditorium in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.
“Our families hope is that her death was not in vain and that preventive measures are put into place to ensure nothing like this ever happens
