SANTA CLARA, CA – Some sheriffs in North Carolina are actively suspending existing contracts and refusing to fully cooperate with federal immigration authorities when it comes to holding on to criminal illegal aliens just long enough for ICE to pick them up. They say they are not obligated to enforce federal immigration laws (a dubious claim, at best) and that they are more concerned with making illegal immigrant communities feel comfortable in contacting law enforcement.
We’ve been suggesting a common sense perspective on this worrying trend: Sanctuary Sheriffs further endanger our communities by refusing to facilitate the removal of illegal aliens with proven criminal records. How long until an illegal alien criminal, turned loose thanks to sanctuary policies, commits a heinous, and preventable crime?
It’s already a happening in California.
From Big League Politics:
“An illegal alien whom Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) tried to deport nine times has been arrested for murder in California.
“Suspect Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza, a Salvadorian national, was arrested Monday and booked into jail for murder,” according to NBC Bay Area. “U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said agents tried to deport Carranza nine times before, but their detainers were not honored in both Los Angeles and Santa Clara counties.”
The report said that ICE was not notified any of the times that Carranza was released from custody, which is typical of sanctuary city policies. Carranza already has several felony convictions on his criminal record.
“In Santa Clara County alone, Carranza has prior convictions for kidnapping, drug possession, battery on a police officer, trespassing and burglary. Carranza was diagnosed with psychosis back in 2016, according to a source,” the report said.
He allegedly murdered 59-year-old Bambi Larson, who police found stabbed multiple times in her South San Jose home. […]”
As long as the sanctuary policies of select sheriffs in North Carolina persist, the risks that they are setting up the Old North State for a scene such as the murder scene in Santa Clara.
