Build the wall!
After a massive manhunt for the murder of Police Corporal Ronil Singh, on December 28, 2018, Stanislaus County Sheriff Department announced the arrest of a 33-year-old illegal alien, Gustavo Perez Arriaga, in Bakersfield, Calif., and have charged him with homicide. Along with the arrest of Arriaga, two other men, 25-year-old Adrian Virgen and 27-year-old Erik Razo Quiroz, who are also illegal aliens, were also arrested for accessory to a felony.
The suspect, 32-year-old Gustavo Perez Arriaga, is a known gang member and has at least two DUIs, Stanislaus Sheriff Adam Christianson said at a news conference in Modesto. Arriaga has been in the states for “several years” illegally, where he held several jobs working as a farm laborer, according to Christianson.
Neighbors of the home where he was arrested Friday recalled being awakened as the raid took place in the Kern County community of Hilltop.
Sheriff Adam Christianson of the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department told Fox News that Arriaga’s relatives and friends who are also in the U.S. illegally tried to help Arriaga evade authorities.
“They are primarily family members and associates, all of whom were actively engaged in aiding and abetting this criminal fugitive,” Christianson said.
Even though arrests have been made of these illegal aliens, the Sheriff says he cannot communicate with ICE about their custody status.
The Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department released photos of two more illegal aliens who have been arrested in connection to the murder of Corporal Singh.
Because California is a sanctuary state, the Stanislaus Sheriff cannot communicate about the arrests of the illegal aliens with ICE.
Thank you, Democrats!
Watch the interview with Fox News’ Jason Chaffetz and the Stanislaus’ Sheriff Christianson :
“Based on their charges and criminal histories, we haven’t dug into all of them yet, at this point I can’t honor the detainers, because of the court’s ruling on Fourth Amendment violations, nor can I communicate with ICE about their custody status.”
