Illegal immigrant accused of killing two deputies.
Here’s a bombshell from Associated Press, “Suspect in Killing of Deputies Was Twice Deported.”
A man suspected of killing two deputies during a shooting rampage in Northern California was deported twice to Mexico and had a drug conviction, federal authorities said.
The suspected shooter told Sacramento County Sheriff’s investigators that he was 34-year-old Marcelo Marquez of Salt Lake City. However, his fingerprints match the biometric records of a Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte in a federal database, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Virginia Kice said.
Monroy-Bracamonte was first removed from the country in 1997 after being convicted in Arizona for possession of narcotics for sale. Monroy-Bracamonte was arrested and repatriated to Mexico a second time in 2001, Kice said.
“The fingerprints were the basis for our request for an immigration detainer,” she said Saturday.
The detainer requests that local authorities turn him over to federal custody after his case is adjudicated so ICE can pursue his deportation, Kice said.
The suspect was being held without bail on suspicion of two counts of murder, two counts of attempted murder and two counts of carjacking.
His wife, 38-year-old Janelle Marquez Monroy, was also in custody on suspicion of attempted murder and carjacking after the attack on Friday that left two deputies dead and two other victims wounded.
And the President is planning to grant some kind of blanket amnesty to guys like this in a few weeks. This is example number one today of why that should never happen. We need to know who these people are—in each and every case—before we grant them any kind of privileges.
Enterovirus 68 that has killed and crippled Americans across the country after being brought in by Obama’s Central American “unaccompanied minors” fiasco is another. Immigrants need to be vetted for criminal backgrounds and for disease before they’re allowed to settle here.
Yes, our immigration policies need an overhaul, but you don’t do it in such a way as to put existing citizens at-risk. The President needs to work within our system, rather than placing himself above it, like a dictator.
