From KESQ News Channel 3: Border Patrol agents seized over $82,000 of methamphetamine and arrested a man previously convicted of sexual assault on a minor over the weekend.

Saturday evening, agents arrested Guatemalan resident Luciano Pablo-Martin, 48, near downtown Calexico after he tried to make an illegal entry into the United States.

Records checks on Pablo revealed he was previously deported from the U.S. on February 13, 2004. Agents also discovered that Pablo had been arrested by the San Diego Sheriff’s Department for lewd acts with a child under 14 twice, on November 14, 2003, and again on June 9, 2014. Pablo was convicted and sentenced to separate prison terms on each conviction.

“Here we have a case of an illegal alien who was convicted of a heinous crime against a minor, not once but two times,” said Assistant Chief Patrol Agent David S. Kim. “This subject preyed upon one of the most vulnerable segments of our communities, our youth. Our agents encountering and arresting him will ensure he is not released back to our communities.”

This was not the first incident agents dealt with Saturday, earlier in the day, at around 9:15 am, a 24-year-old U.S. citizen was arrested for allegedly trying to smuggle methamphetamine.

Agents discovered 15 vacuum-sealed packages wrapped in cellophane hidden in a compartment within the vehicle’s roof during an inspection at the Highway 86 checkpoint in Borrego Springs. The packages tested positive for methamphetamine and weighed a total of 18.33 pounds with an estimated street value of $82,485. The subject, vehicle, and narcotics were turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Sanctuary California: Illegal alien working as Uber driver arrested for four rapes, could possibly be more cases

Illegal alien Alarcon-Nunez free to roam and rape in sanctuary California

From Daily Mail: California prosecutors said an Uber driver living in the country illegally has been charged with raping, assaulting and robbing young women.

San Luis Obispo County District Attorney Dan Dow said Monday that Alfonso Alarcon-Nunez’s alleged four victims are between 19 and 22 years old and three were intoxicated when they were assaulted.

The 39-year-old Mexican citizen faces 10 criminal charges including forcible rape and first degree burglary for the alleged incidents that occurred on December 17, 2017, January 5 and January 14.

Alarcon-Nunez is suspected of having sexually assaulted at least four women in California’s San Luis Obispo, but authorities said there could be additional victims in the county and its neighboring Santa Barbara, KSBY reports.

Alarcon-Nunez, who has also used the name Bruno Diaz, was arrested at his Santa Maria, California home on January 17.

Authorities then discovered that he is an undocumented immigrant illegal alien, who had returned to the US illegally after having been voluntarily deported from New Mexico in 2005.

He now faces multiple charges of rape of an intoxicated victim, first-degree burglary and oral copution of an intoxicated victim. He also faces charges of assault with the intent to commit a sex offense, forcible rape and grand theft.

Authorities said that while Alarcon-Nunez was on duty as an Uber driver, he specifically targeted parties with the intention of soliciting rides from intoxicated women. Once arriving at their homes, he then allegedly assaulted them and stole items including cell phones, computers and jewelry.

Police said that he used a Venmo app account – under the name ‘Brush Bat’ – to collect his Uber payments in an effort to obfuscate both his identity and his Uber records.  

Dow said detectives are looking for potential witnesses and trying to determine if there are additional victims in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties northwest of Los Angeles.

At his Monday arraignment, prosecutors asked for $1.48million in bail – a significant increase from the $200,000 bail asked for at his arrest, The Tribune reported.

During a press conference Monday, Dow noted that US Immigrations and Customs Enforcement confirmed that Alarcon-Nunez is a Mexican citizen and said that he was using a 2015 California driver’s license, although it was not known how long he had been residing in the US.

He is being held at San Luis Obispo County Jail.

MS-13 wants to send younger and more violent offenders to the U.S.

ms-13

And yet demorats will continue to defend their sanctuary policies which allow these animals to freely roam in the U.S.

From Fox News: Frustrated MS-13 gang leaders feeling the pressure from the Trump administration’s crackdown are looking to send “younger, more violent offenders” to the United States to take over the role of being enforcers, officials say.

The revelations were made Thursday during a House Committee on Homeland Security meeting on fighting international criminal organizations, where officials discussed the arrests and imprisonment of MS-13 members and leadership over the last year.

“They’re very much interested in sending younger, more violent offenders up through their channels into this country in order to be enforcers for the gang,” said Stephen Richardson, assistant director of the FBI’s criminal investigative division, according to VOA News.

Peter King, R-N.Y., the committee’s chairman, said his staff recently visited El Salvador and was told by law enforcement there that the gang — which mostly operates out of prisons in the Central American country — is “frustrated that MS-13 members in [the U.S.] are not violent enough.”

“It’s a horrifying thought,” King was quoted as saying by VOA News.

Justice Department figures say the gang has 40,000 members worldwide, with around 10,000 in the U.S. carrying out crimes ranging from extortion to gun trafficking.

“We’re looking at the information we’re getting and doubling down our efforts against MS-13,” Raymond Villaneuva, an assistant director for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, told lawmakers in response to King’s comments.

The gang, also responsible for dozens of gruesome deaths throughout the U.S., was designated a “priority” last year by the Justice Department’s Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force. Prosecutors are able to pursue any legal avenue to target MS-13, according to Attorney Gen. Jeff Sessions.

U.S. officials and three Central American countries announced in September that more than 3,800 members of MS-13 and the 18th Street gangs have been charged since March.

Sessions also said in December the Justice Department convicted more than 1,000 gang members in the U.S. in 2017, VOA News reported.

MS-13 is believed to be behind 25 killings on New York’s Long Island alone in the past two years.

Trump in July 2017 visited Brentwood, N.Y., a town that has experienced the gang’s wrath, and pledged to push Congress for additional federal immigration agents to crack down on gang members who are in the country illegally. He also called MS-13 members “animals.”

Many MS-13 recruits are middle- and high-school students, predominantly in immigrant communities, who are said to risk violent retribution if they leave.

Oakland mayor willing to go to jail to protest Trump’s immigration policies

Hillary Clinton

Libby Schaaf (l) and Hillary Clinton (r): Can we get a “twofer” and get them both thrown in jail?

Protecting residents illegal aliens is the proggies’ priority.

And just not too long ago proggies were cool with the feds’ rights. Funny how they flip flop depending upon who is president.

From Yahoo: The mayor of a California city has said she is prepared to go to jail after its council voted to end cooperation with federal immigration agents and protect its status as a so-called sanctuary city.

Speaking after Oakland City Council voted unanimously to end its cooperation following reports federal immigration officers were planning to launch massive raids across the Bay Area, Mayor Libby Schaaf said: “Let me be clear, that cities that have sanctuary status are engaging in their legal right.”

ABC News said, when asked if she was prepared to go to jail over the issue, she responded: “Yes”.

CBS San Francisco also reports this:

“It is no surprise that the bully in chief is continuing to try to intimidate our most vulnerable residents,” said Schaaf, referring to President Donald Trump. “We’re very clear that our values are to protect all of our residents regardless of where we come from. We want to protect families, not tear them apart.”

Schaaf’s remarks came on a day when rumors were swirling that ICE planned to launch a series of Bay Area raids — arresting as many as 1,500 illegal aliens — because California has become a Sanctuary State and several communities have adopted Sanctuary City policies.

“We are exercising our legal right to be a Sanctuary City and to protect our residents,” Schaaf told KPIX 5 of her opposition to ICE raids. “The fact that the federal government is suggesting that it is actively retaliating against jurisdictions that are exercising their right to have sanctuary policies — that is what is illegal.”

Illegal alien accused of stabbing stranger in neck at California market had been deported seven times

You own this sanctuary-loving demorats.

From Fox News: A man accused of an “unprovoked and brutal stabbing” at a market in California last month is an illegal immigrant alien with a criminal record who had been previously deported seven times, a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman told Fox News.

Ricardo Velasquez-Romero, 39, who also goes by the name Eulalio Miniz Orozco, was arrested last month after local police say he stabbed a 61-year-old man in the neck at Lola’s Market in Santa Rosa on Dec. 21.

Department of Homeland Security databases indicate Velasquez-Romero “has been repatriated to his native Mexico seven times since 2007,” a spokesman for ICE said.

“Records indicate Mr. Velasquez also has multiple prior criminal convictions, including those from felony drug and weapons charges,” said James Schwab, a spokesman in San Francisco for ICE.

Schwab said ICE has placed a detainer on the suspect with the Sonoma County Jail, indicating a desire to take custody of him when released from local custody, and “continues to closely monitor the legal proceedings of Mr. Velasquez.”

At the time of the stabbing, Santa Rosa Police said the victim and the suspect had been sitting at different tables in the restaurant and had not spoken to each other.

“At one point, the suspect stood up and walked toward the victim,” the local police said a news release. “The suspect had an unknown stabbing instrument in his hand and stabbed the victim once in the neck. The suspect then fled the area on foot.”

Velasquez-Romero had been residing in Santa Rosa for the previous two months, police said.

The victim, whose name was not released, was transported to a local hospital with a life-threatening injury. At the time of Velasquez-Romero’s arrest last month, the police said the victim’s condition had been upgraded to stable.

Velasquez-Romero has been charged with attempted murder.

It follows the case of Kate Steinle, who was shot to death in San Francisco in 2015 by an illegal immigrant alien named Jose Ines Garcia Zarate. The case fueled a nationwide debate on sanctuary cities. Zarate, who had previously been deported several times, argued the shooting was an accident and was acquitted of murder last month.

California recently became a “sanctuary state,” where local police are prevented from asking people about their immigration status.

Demorats own this: Previously deported illegal alien accused of killing two cops wishes he’d killed more

illegal luis bracamontes

Illegal alien Luis Bracamontes free to roam in sanctuary California

Demorats choose to provide sanctuary to illegal aliens who kill our citizens. Shame on them.

The death of an American citizen, Kate Steinle, by the hand of an illegal alien, meant absolutely nothing, NOTHING, to them.

SHAME ON THEM.

From Sacramento Bee: There’s never been much dispute over whether Luis Bracamontes shot and killed two Sacramento-area deputies in October 2014.

Hehas repeatedly admitted to it in court hearings, and at the start of his trial Tuesday his own lawyer essentially convicted the illegal immigrant alien of killing Sacramento sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer sheriff’s Deputy Michael Davis Jr. in a daylong spree of violence that started in a Motel 6 parking lot near Arden Fair Mall.

“Let me be clear and up front,” public defender Jeffrey Barbour told the jury hearing his case. “Mr. Bracamontes is responsible for the death of Deputy Danny Oliver and Detective Michael Davis. “He shot them both.”

The statement came during an extraordinary opening day during which the proceedings devolved into a spectacle of the defendant threatening to kill more people, giggling as a prosecutor described his crime spree and his own lawyers once again questioning his sanity.

“I wish I had killed more of the mother——-,” he boasted to the jury as prosecutor Rod Norgaard described the outbreak of violence.

Smiling broadly, Bracamontes added, “I will break out soon and I will kill more, kill whoever gets in front of me … There’s no need for a f—— trial.”

That outburst led to Sacramento Superior Court Judge Steve White briefly removing the jury, then warning Bracamontes. “You will not disrupt this trial, you will not speak out,” White told him. “If you do, you will be removed from the courtroom.”

Barbour, who along with partner Norm Dawson has questioned Bracamontes’ sanity, then asked the judge to reconsider his finding that Bracamontes is mentally competent to stand trial.

“Your motion is denied,” White told Barbour. He then had the jury come back in and instructed them not to pay any attention to what had happened. All of them indicated they could do so, and Norgaard concluded his opening statement just before noon.

Barbour and Dawson then renewed their efforts, asking the judge outside the presence of the jury if they could enter a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity.

“We believe Mr. Bracamontes’ outbursts, his laughter, are a function of his mental illness,” Barbour said.

But the judge was having none of it, noting that the issue already had been litigated in previous hearings and that if Bracamontes chooses not to help his lawyers that’s up to him. “He is not incompetent to stand trial,” White declared.

The jury returned after a lunch break and, after Barbour conceded his client killed both deputies, he urged the jurors to listen to evidence presented that may be of use in the penalty phase, when they will have to choose between the death penalty or life in prison if he is convicted.

Bracamontes, 37, an illegal immigrant alien from Mexico, is on trial along with his wife, Janelle Monroy, 41. She faces a possible sentence of life in prison.

Part of the evidence defense attorneys hope will spare Bracamontes from the death penalty is the fact that after his arrest a blood test found an “excessively high” amount of methamphetamine in his system that may have made him paranoid and agitated, and that he wrote a suicide note in the house where he holed up before surrendering to authorities.

“Forgive me, God,” the note read. “Please take me with you. I love you, Janelle.”

Prosecutors say the suicide note was written after Bracamontes turned on the burners of the home’s gas stove and tried to have it ignite to kill him and any officers who rushed in. Instead, Bracamontes crawled out of the house and surrendered meekly.

He is charged with killing both deputies, shooting a motorist in the head to steal his car and wounding another Placer County deputy in Auburn. His wife is accused of assisting Bracamontes after Oliver was killed by helping move an assault-style rifle from car to car as the couple fled authorities.

The case is being heard by two separate juries, one for each defendant. Monroy’s attorney Pete Kmeto attempted in his opening statement to draw a sharp line between Bracamontes’ actions and hers.

“There’s no issue as to whether or not she shot anyone,” Kmeto said. “She didn’t.”

Instead, he portrayed her as a victim who lived in fear of her husband, especially after she saw him kill Oliver. “The evidence is going to show that this woman who loved this man and was married to him for years was stuck in a car with a crazy person,” Kmeto said.

Norgaard, a Sacramento prosecutor who is handling the case with Placer County Deputy District Attorney Dave Tellman, had a different perspective, telling her jury that she moved Bracamontes’ weapon from car to car as the pair embarked on a 40-mile rampage that ended in Auburn.

“They were in it together all along,” Norgaard said.

The case has drawn widespread media attention, partly because of Bracamontes’ status as an illegal immigrant alien and his history of arrests and deportations in Arizona. President Donald Trump has weighed in on the case, mentioning it during a speech to Congress last year and introducing the widow of one of the slain deputies.

Illegal alien who killed Kate Steinle sentenced to time served

Kate Steinle: Murdered by an illegal alien in sanctuary San Francisco

I despise the illegal-alien-loving folks in California.

From Fox News: The illegal immigrant alien and seven-time felon who was acquitted of murder and assault in the 2015 San Francisco fatal shooting of 32-year old Kate Steinle was sentenced to three years in prison on Friday.

Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, who has been in custody since shortly after the shooting, was credited for time served. He will be on parole for 48 months and will remain in custody to face federal charges.

The case sparked national debate over immigration reform and so-called Sanctuary Cities that shield illegals from deportation, of which San Francisco is one.

The felony possession was the only conviction to come out of Garcia Zarate’s trial in November. The jury decided Steinle’s death, the result of a ricochet bullet fired from roughly 100 feet away, was an accident.

At a hearing Friday, Garcia Zarate entered the courtroom wearing huge oversized bright orange sweatshirt and sweatpants. He was uncuffed and smiling as he shook the hand of each member of his defense team, including new attorney Tony Serra. His attorneys requested a new trial, but the judge denied the motion.

Garcia Zarate is expected to be turned over to U.S. Marshals to face new charges in federal court, under an indictment handed down on Dec. 5.

A federal grand jury has charged Garcia Zarate with being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition and being an “illegally present alien” in possession of a firearm and ammunition.

Public defender Matt Gonzalez told reporters the new charges are “discriminatory,” and a reaction by administration officials upset over his client’s acquittal of murder and assault.

Garcia Zarate could be arraigned as early as next week for the federal charges, which carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison. Immigration officials have also indicated they plan to deport him for a sixth time.

On Friday, Serra blasted the federal government for filing federal charges against Garcia Zarate after he was cleared of most state charges. “Shame on the federal government, shame on the Trump administration. Shame on them in terms of bringing a retaliatory, vindictive prosecution,” Serra said. “So we will take those issues on.”
