Church shooter with a 30-year criminal record was up for deportation twice


Luis Manuel Vasquez-Gomez, a 52-year-old native of the Dominican Republic who lived in the Bronx, was the shooter of a New York City Christmas concert on December 13 at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine.

The  New York City Police Department (NYPD) officers showed up within five minutes of him shooting in the air, and then at police. Police begged him to drop his gun, but he refused.

NYPD officers were forced to shoot Vasquez-Gomez. He was rushed to a hospital where he died.

Vasquez-Gomez was wearing a Dominican Republic face mask and hat and, according to the New York Daily News, was carrying a manifesto where he justified the shooting “because of the way the United States treated the people of Latin America.”


According to records, Vasquez-Gomez had a long criminal history dating back three decades.

He arrived in the U.S. in 1976 as a legal immigrant. In 1989, Vasquez-Gomez pleaded guilty after cutting the hand of a man. He got off without prison. Then he was caught selling cocaine after being arrested for attempted murder. Gomez had fired in the direction of a woman and police officers. He went to prison and got out in 1995. The criminal of 30 years was ordered deported, but in 2007 and 2017, the bleeding hearts made sure he got to stay.

Vasquez-Gomez was last in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody in 2008 after he violated his parole in 2007. He was released from ICE custody that year.

It’s absolutely ridiculous that some people insist on keeping these lunatic criminals here. Unfortunately, expect it to get much worse under Biden. He promised open borders. That includes a sanctuary for criminals. Why Americans are supporting this is a mystery. 84 million Americans apparently want this and love Biden.

We must believe the election was the most secure ever. Therefore, 84 million came out for Joe and his open borders.

The Results of the Shooting Could Have Been Much Worse
