Guardian Angels are coming to Staten Island

In response to the recent rise in bias attacks on State Island the Guardian Angels appear to be coming to the boro to help defend the population, according to reports.

The non-profit group will send unarmed volunteers to help combat the increasing violence in Port Richmond and other neighborhoods.

The reaction from the group comes after the latest incident where a 40-year-old Mexican construction worker, who has lived here for 20 years, was attacked by a group who broke his jaw.

The Consulate of Mexico in New York sent a letter to the SI Advance commenting on the latest developments.

“In response to the escalating violence against Mexicans in Port Richmond, Staten Island, the Consulate General of Mexico in New York is posting personnel that will remain in the borough until further notice. This, in order to safeguard their rights and effectively assist and provide information to the Mexican residents of this area,” the letter said.
