I'm sorry to hear that someone attempted to steal your car. Unfortunately, there is no temporary solution for this. The car will continue to act this way until the ignition switch is repaired or replaced. With the ignition damaged, the anti-theft system cannot read the chip in the key so it will not start. For the time being, you may want to consider local transport options, friends or family, or different ridesharing applications that can get you to and from work until you have the starting issue diagnosed and repaired.

Q: Need to permanently disable the anti-theft kit

The only way to disable the system is by unlocking the doors or using a factory remote. If the door does not work, then it may have a bad switch on the key lock that needs replaced.
