One of two illegal immigrants held on bail for attacking NYPD officers in New York City last month has been released after a Brooklyn church posted his $15,000 bond.

Only two of the seven illegal Venezuelan immigrants charged in the January 27th attack on two officers outside a migrant shelter were held on bail, while the others were released due to New York’s bail reform law.

Yohenry Brito, 24, who had been in Rikers Island jail, walked free on Tuesday after Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Brooklyn paid his bond.

The pastor described the church as a “sanctuary.”

Rev. Juan Ruiz said, “Our church is basically a sanctuary.”

“We assume that people are innocent until they are proven otherwise,” he continued.

Meanwhile, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who has ties to billionaire George Soros, has faced criticism for releasing most of the accused attackers.

Republicans have called on the governor to remove Bragg over his handling of the case.
