Time Square’s New Billboard Of The Illegal Immigrant Attack On Police

A conservative group — the Job Creators Network — is paying to put up a billboard in Manhattan’s Times Square that depicts the illegal immigrants who allegedly assaulted New York Police Department (NYPD) officers in January in order to put pressure on the Biden administration over its open border policies.

“Hey Joe! If cops aren’t safe because of your open borders, nobody is,” the billboard taunts the Democrat president. The billboard includes a video that captured the incident in Times Square and went viral on social media in January, adding to the national debate over how to secure the border and better protect Americans with immigration policy.

The advertisement directs viewers walking past in New York City to visit the website SecureOurBordersNow.com, where the organization has a petition ready for visitors to sign urging the president to get serious about border policy.

Authorities are holding Yohenry Brito, 24, on $15,000 bail for his alleged participation in the police attack, which began after several pedestrians refused to clear a sidewalk after police gave them orders to move.

“President Biden needs to stop playing political games with the southern border,” said Elaine Parker, the chief spokeswoman for the Job Creators Network. “The administration already has the authority and resources it needs to act.”

Biden says that conservative Republicans are stopping him from achieving border reform because they are unwilling to support his Ukraine-Israel-Border bill, a compromise worked out by establishment leaders of both parties in the U.S. Senate, but rejected by conservative senators.

Republicans say Biden’s bill allows too many new illegal immigrants across the border daily for federal, state, and local resources to comfortably or safely sustain. Some worry it will invite more pressure on the border from illegal immigrant groups moving in from all over the world and crossing the U.S. border illegally from Mexico.

One week ago, five illegal immigrants pleaded not guilty in a Manhattan court to assaulting two NYPD officers in Times Square in January. The court sent Yohenry Brito, 24, Yorman Reveron, 24, Kelvin Servita Arocha, 19, Darwin Andres Gomez-Izquiel, 19, and Wilson Juarez, 21, to Rikers Island to await trial after arraignment, all due back in court on Apr. 13.
