Border Town

April 4, 2024

tragic story is unfolding in the Hudson Valley where a “Haitian national who was awaiting deportation hearings” has been accused of murdering his roommates in Middletown. 

The alleged killer, Kenol Baptiste, has been in the United States for 8 months. 

A local elected who recently returned from a border trip had this to say:  
“This is a failure on all levels of the federal government…”

“Who is monitoring them? That’s the problem.”

“We don’t have any history, no background on these individuals.” 

“This is a failure of the federal government and Pat Ryan bears the responsibility. His support for sanctuary counties, his lack of backing of border security and his enabling of Biden’s border crisis are turning every town into a border town.” – NRCC Spokeswoman Savannah Viar
