President Donald Trump's acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Chad Wolf tried and failed to drum up anti-immigrant furor on his Twitter account.
Sharing a disturbing story of an undocumented immigrant accused of murdering a 92-year-old woman, Wolf said New York City had seen a "complete breakdown of law and order."
It wasn't because the hit television show had been cancelled.
Wolf's tweet fed the Trump-backed narrative that undocumented immigrants are somehow more prone to commit violent crimes than American citizens.
In reality, over a third of New York City's residents are foreign-born. Crime in New York City had a record overall low in 2019.
While there will inevitably be violent crime in a city of nearly nine million people, there's hardly been a dissolution of law and order.
Nevertheless, people were eager to send their evidence of the violent anarchy currently taking place in New York.
Some people used Wolf's own logic against him.
Others just used facts.
There likely won't be a complete breakdown of law and order in New York until the famously aggressive Central Park squirrels finish evolving.
