2 Illegal Alien Killers, 1 Sanctuary State, 200 Miles of Terror

Less than 200 miles separate Tulare County and Stanislaus County. And a little over a week separates the two reigns of terror in these two California counties by Gustavo Garcia and Gustavo Perez Arriaga.

Both Gustavos were dangerous and violent illegal aliens. On Monday, December 17, Gustavo Garcia went on a murderous rampage that killed at least two people and put seven more in the hospital. On Wednesday, December 26, Gustavo Perez Arriaga murdered a law enforcement officer at a traffic stop.

Cpl. Ronil Singh, murdered by the second Gustavo, and Rocky Paul Jones and Rolando Soto, murdered by the first Gustavo, did not have to die. They died because California’s sanctuary state law took their lives.

Gustavo Garcia had a criminal record dating back to 2002 covering everything from illegal weapons to meth. He had been deported in 2004 and then again in 2014. There had been three immigration holds on the illegal alien criminal. Before he began his murderous spree, Tulare County sheriff's deputies arrested him. ICE put a hold on him as a dangerous illegal alien. But because of California's sanctuary state law, local law enforcement had to let him loose. A few days later, the illegal alien’s carnage began.

Garcia shot a farmworker picking fruit in the chest, robbed a mini-mart at gunpoint of $2,000, shot and killed a man, shot at a woman in the parking lot of a Motel 6, wounding her in the arm and torso, opened fire at two gas stations, killing Rocky Jones, fired shots into several homes, including the home of his ex-girlfriend, forcing her and her children to flee, opened fire on the deputies pursuing him, stole a car from three other farmworkers at gunpoint, and got into a high speed chase while deliberately trying to hit other cars.

He exchanged fire with pursuing cops during the chase, and smashed into other cars while going 100 miles, taking his own life and putting four other people in the hospital, including one critically wounded.

And that’s actually an incomplete list of the illegal alien killer’s crimes after the ICE hold wasn’t honored.

"Before SB 54, Gustavo Garcia would have been turned over to ICE officials. That’s how we’ve always done it, day in and day out. After SB 54, we no longer have the power to do that," Sheriff Mike Boudreaux said.

SB54, euphemistically named the California Values Act, banned local law enforcement officers from holding illegal aliens in custody on immigration detainers or communicating with immigration authorities. Introduced by Senator Kevin de Leon and signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown, the sanctuary state bill illegally made California a sanctuary state and tied the hands of law enforcement.

A little over a week had passed when Gustavo Perez Arriaga was pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving early in the morning. He shot Cpl. Ronil Singh, an immigrant from Fiji, and led law enforcement on a 55 hour manhunt as he fled for the Mexican border. When he was caught, he had traveled around 200 miles from the original scene of the crime. And he had taken the life of a family man and corporal.

Gustavo Perez Arriaga was an illegal migrant who had crossed the border into Arizona a few years ago. The illegal alien was allegedly a member of the Sureno gangs operating under the Mexican mafia. While he found employment as a farm worker, he boasted about his gang membership on social media and racked up drunk driving arrests that couldn’t be used to deport him because California’s sanctuary state law prevented law enforcement from doing anything until it was too late. Now it’s too late.

Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson blamed California sanctuary state laws for Singh's death and questioned why Sacramento was “providing sanctuary for criminals, gang members”. Cpl. Ronil Singh would have been alive, he pointed out, if his future killer had been deported.

Sanctuary state law advocates claim that they want to protect immigrants. Instead they killed one.

“Deepest condolences to the family of Cpl. Ronil Singh of the Newman Police Department. Our hearts are heavy during this holiday season. You truly lived the American Dream,” Senator Kevin de Leon tweeted.

Singh had been living the American Dream, until Kevin de Leon’s illegal alien nightmare took his life.

Singh "immigrated here lawfully and legally to pursue his American dream,” Sheriff Adam Christianson said. “He achieved that goal and his dream was taken from him."

Under fire, Senator Kevin de Leon doubled down on putting illegal alien criminals ahead of legal immigrants. “The type of tone and attitude that Sheriff Christianson has taken instills fear and panic in all immigrant communities,” he ranted. The immigrants attacked by his illegal aliens may disagree.

Meanwhile ICE Out of California, the pro-illegal pressure group, blamed the illegal alien crime spree on “gun violence”. “The California Values Act,” it claimed, “is part of the solution.”

Law enforcement officers, even those like Sheriff Boudreaux, who support illegal aliens to some degree, however agree that the sanctuary state mandate is costing lives.

“We are very frustrated with the fact that the way the laws are set up currently that law enforcement hands are tied,” Sheriff Mike Boudreaux said. “Our county was shot up by a violent criminal that could have easily been prevented had we had the opportunity to reach out to our fellow counterparts.”

In Fresno County, Sheriff Margaret Mims has faced harassment over her cooperation with ICE. "It's ridiculous the state dictates the local law enforcement which other law enforcement agencies they can and can't talk to,” she said.

Meanwhile in Los Angeles, there’s a new pro-crime sheriff in town.

Sheriff Alex Villanueva’s upset victory had allegedly been illegally lubricated by straw donors. And the pro-crime figure is vowing to go further than ever to protect illegal aliens and has even threatened to “physically remove ICE from the county jails.

" Across California, the sanctuary state law has been putting more illegal alien criminals on the street.

In Monterey, ICE detentions dropped by 83%, from 217 to 36. In San Luis Obispo County, the 87 illegal alien criminals picked up by ICE in 2017 had dropped to 0. Other counties have been partial holdouts, maintaining some limited and diminishing cooperation with ICE despite illegal alien lobby pressure.

Similar battles are being fought in counties across California as the number of illegal criminals grows.

Sanctuary state defenders claim that these illegal alien criminals are exceptions to the rule. But when Gustavo Perez Arriaga went on the run, after murdering a law enforcement officer, a network of illegal aliens stepped out of the shadows to help him flee justice and return to Mexico.

7 men and women were arrested for aiding the cop-killer. Every one of them is an illegal alien.

So WHY hasn't the US DoJ issued a warrant for the arrest of the Governor, County Sheriffs, and Attorney General of the State of California for violation of US Immigration Law? Isn't harboring an illegal alien against the law? If, I for example, harbored someone that broke federal law, would I not be arrested?

John C. said...

Good Question FrenchKiss. Everyone is so afraid the leftist news media and the democrat operatives calling them racists they are paralyzed with fear. That includes the DoJ and the USAG. Our country is being run by people who don't care about us citizens and don't car about our safety or security. America was lost while the Patriots slept. We did this to ourselves.

Any city or state that claims to be a "sanctuary" for criminals, should IMMEDIATELY have any federal funding cut off! In the case of a state, ALL congressional representative of that state, should also be removed the the U.S. Congress!

1. Corporal Singh, who long ago immigrated from Fiji, (not too far away from new Zealand, from which I emigrated) was not, when murdered by a hostilely-colonizing invading criminal alien, "an immigrant."

For years already, Corporal Singh had been an American. If he wished, a hypenated-American, maybe a "Fijian-American" or an "Indian-American." But I'll bet New York City to a single brick, on and from what I've read and heard of Corporal Singh, that he was, as I am and demanded to be known to be, an AMERICAN-American and;

2. Please quit calling invading and hostilely-colonizing criminal invaders "illegal "immigrants" and distinguishing some of them from others by calling only some of them, "criminal" illegal "immigrants and please also note;

3. "Immigration is a legal and lawful process, the word is not a synonym of "migrant" -- and, it must be noted, there are no "illegal" immigrants. Also, please note (the second and every subsequent immigration crime [false ID, EG] being a felony) that EVERY criminal-alien invader is a criminal.

Every one.

This is the level that Donald Trump should have channeled. Why aren't you writing for him?

Dan Tige said...

I suspect that two "minor" changes in federal law might also change California's attitude toward illegal immigrants:
• representation in the U.S. House of Representative to be based on the count of U.S. citizens and persons legally residing in a state
• federal assistance programs limited to U.S. citizens and persons legally residing in a state

Obviously, there are logistical issues with those changes, not the least of which would be the verification of citizenship and legal residence. But until the obvious incentive is removed for a state like California to harbor illegal aliens, additional representation in the U.S. House of Representatives, California politicians will do what is in their own power interests.

"Immigrant" does include those who came from somewhere else, complied with all laws, protocols, etc, and have become citizens here. One may be a citizen AND an immigrant. Please note, an immigrant citizen is a "naturalised" citizen, but is NOT a "natural born citizen", and thus not eligible to even run for prsident or vice president.

The term "illegal immigrant" is an invalid one.. if one is "illegal", i.e has NOT complied with all laws for entry and lawful residence, he is NOT an "immigrant" who will have so complied. Thus anyone not here in accordance with all our laws is an illegal foreign invader. And should be treated as such.

ALL of those sheriffs in California have sworn an oath to uphold and enforce the US Constitution and all laws enacted PERSUANT THERETO. Thus, that oath supercedes any demands of California to violate that oath by refusing to comply with valid federal laws. This, since FedGov demands FedGov be informed when someone in custody, and found to be here illegally, if those sheriffs do NOT uphold that law as in these two cases was not done, those Sheriffs are subject to FEDERAL penalties. WHY will not DoJ put these sheriffs on notice, and do so publically, that if they continue to refuse to comply with valid US law on the matter, they WILL be charged under present laws.... as well as perjury felony level for swearing that oath and failing to keep it. For US DoJ to make it public policy that such LEO's who fail to inform per valid US law WILL be held accountable under US law... they'd have to make a decision... most WANT to uphold those laws, especially now one of their own has been murdered by an illegal foreign invader who was present and enabled by the sheriffs who decided to comply with State non-law rather than comply with Federal law....what, willl Gavvie Nuisance arrest them for not obeying California's illegal law, or will Fed AtG arrest them for refusing to comply with Federal law? I'd say stiff Gavvie.... and let HIM try to trump ICE and the courts. if these two sheriffs (Tulare and Stanislaus Counties) were to uphold their oaths of office/Fed law, whcih is their sworn duty (they being the chief law enforcement officers within their counties) there will be an abundance of huffing and puffing on the joined parts of Gavvie Nuisance and Becerra the Beast, on the California side) and Trump's DoJ on the other.

Anyone else remember back when the National Guard were deployed to assure the safety of the first busloads of students being integrated in Alabama, I believe it was? The governor, a tried and true dirtbag (Wallace?) threatened to prevent the mixing of races in HIS schools, National Guard troops were deployed, and well armed, to assure the kids went INTO the white schools.... and were not harmed. Ol Georgie Boy was near apopleptic... but when being faced down by armed troops he made an "informed decision" and was allowed to live......

First off, Kevin de Leon and Jerry Brown should be arrested for sedition. De Leon is a criminal and a La Raza bigot, who has bragged about his family being here illegally. He then introduces SB54, and it’s then signed into law by traitor Brown. I’m not sure why local police agencies are even obeying this “law.” They should ignore this sedition and cooperate with ICE. How many more Americans have to be slaughtered before people come out of their stupor and start arresting and defying traitors like De Leon and Brown!
