On Friday, Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte–an illegal alien criminal–allegedly shot and killed two sheriff’s deputies in the Northern California counties of Sacramento and Placer. He also allegedly shot another man in the head for resisting a car-jacking.
Monroy-Bracamonte had been deported twice before using a false identity.
Authorities had plenty of opportunities to remove Monroy-Bracamonte long before he decided to wake up one October morning in 2014 and allegedly murder a cop with a so-called “assault weapon.”
Monroy-Bracamonte apparently showed no regard for human life, and should face the death penalty for destroying so many families.
But what do we do with the politicians who were his accomplices before the fact in this terrible crime?
Under Jerry Brown and a supermajority of illegal alien enablers, whose welcome-mat policies have encouraged more illegals come to California than any other state, should be held responsible. President Obama has been no better: by executive order, he has effectively nullified all enforcement of immigration laws in the United States.
You can see the names of those who voted for the Trust Act (AB4), to protect illegal alien criminals from detection, if their crimes are deemed minor (just like this alleged killer).
Monroy-Bracamonte’s alleged crimes would have been deemed minor under this law, and he would have been “legally” permitted to remain here, had his arrests been in California instead of other states. That means this policy endorsed by Gov. Jerry Brown, Attorney General Kamala Harris, and even some police chiefs, are complicit in protecting this dangerous man from being deported before he allegedly committed this unconscionable double-murder.
It is ironic that California Democrats and a handful of Republicans just passed a law (AB1014) to allow the government to break down your door and confiscate your guns without a day in court if a “family member” deems you a threat to yourself or others, but they will not allow law enforcement to cooperate with ICE to remove illegal aliens who pose a threat to public safety.
It is strange that the so-called journalists who rant and rail in favor of gun control and unchecked illegal immigration have remained silent on how an illegal alien–yes, he’s not “undocumented,” his documents were false–could navigate our society for over a decade, get a drivers license, work, and buy a gun in spite of the byzantine myriad of gun control restrictions now in place to prevent it.
He must have bought it–yes, you guessed it–illegally.
A report from the AP says that the alleged killer “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.”
Further down at the end of the article, the AP makes note that this illegal alien, whatever his name is, had racked up no less than 10 tickets and multiple misdemeanor offenses between 2003 and 2009 as “Marcelo Marquez.” Prior to that, Kice tells us that Monroy-Bracamonte was first removed from the country in 1997 after being convicted in Arizona for possession of narcotics for sale. Then Monroy-Bracamonte was arrested and repatriated to Mexico a second time in 2001.
ICE investigators were able to figure this out less than 24 hours after his arrest because they ran his fingerprints through the ICE database, something that is forbidden in California by the Trust Act for all but the most violent criminals.
This raises serious questions.
How did he get a drivers license?
How is it that his fake ID was not detected over a decade, even though he’d had over a dozen encounters with law enforcement, either at traffic stops or as misdemeanors?
After the passage of AB60 in California, illegal aliens may now obtain a California drivers license as long as they can produce a consular ID known as a Matricula Consular, which the FBI has said is one of the most insecure documents in existence. Once you have your California drivers license, you can build an identity, just like Monroy-Bracamonte did with a Utah Drivers license.
I am tired of reading stories about how we have to “look the other way” so that illegal aliens can have a better life in violation of our laws. I’ve watched too many good people become victims at the hands of people here illegallywho were given the benefit of the doubt one time too many.
One thing is certain: we cannot grant amnesty to 11, 12, 20, 30 or 40 million illegal aliens, especially when the government has no idea who they really are, and no feasible way to sort through whatever number is correct.
It’s time we stand up to our government and demand that it enforce our immigration laws, and recognize our right to carry as we choose so we may defend our own lives, put at risk by the policies of these Marxist-progressive-illegal-alien apologists who have made states like California a sanctuary for illegal alien criminals.
