Lawmakers, including Congresswoman Grace Meng, say Hirsch poses a danger to the community and should not be released.

The Queens District Attorney's Office says even if he were to make bail, Hirsch would be under house arrest and electronic monitoring and that any violation of the terms or conditions could result in bail being revoked.
