A 26-year-old Palestinian migrant is facing hate crime charges in New York after police say he stole a homeowner’s U.S. and Israeli flags out of his yard and then beat the man to the ground while yelling antisemitic slurs.

“These are not the type of people who come to America like my great-grandparents did, like your great-grandparents and grandparents and parents who came to America to kiss the ground,” Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman told reporters Tuesday.

“Instead, they spit on our flag, they trample on our values and they commit crimes. And they do so at taxpayer expense.”
