Migrant accused of shooting two NYPD cops had immigration case dismissed within a year of illegally crossing into U.S. | 3 June 2024 | The Venezuelan migrant accused of shooting two NYPD cops during the early hours of Monday morning crossed into the US illegally last year, but the case against him has already been dismissed, The Post can exclusively reveal. Bernardo Castro Mata, 19 -- who shot one officer in the chest and another in the leg after they attempted to stop his moped in Queens -- had a hearing in Chicago on May 6 where an immigration judge closed his case, according to ICE sources. The information emerged less than 24 hours after The Post exposed the Biden regime's dismissal of asylum cases and deportation orders against 350,000 migrants because they didn't have criminal records or aren’t deemed national security threats. Those migrants are also under no obligation to leave the country and are no longer monitored by Immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE] -- making them undocumented.
