California’s Sanctuary City Stance Caused Officer Ronil Singh’s Death

In the midst of the drama over the government shutdown, California’s Stanislaus County Sheriff department along with multiple other agencies were engaged in a major manhunt for an illegal who shot Corporal Ronil Singh to death during a routine traffic stop on Wednesday. This wouldn’t have happened if California hadn’t decided it was politically correct to become a sanctuary state.

Corporal Singh was an immigrant himself. One who came to the United States LEGALLY.

“He came to America with one purpose, and that was to serve this country,” said Newman Police Chief Randy Richardson, calling Singh an “American Patriot.”

Again, there’s a significant difference between Singh and the shooter. Singh came here legally. The shooter … didn’t.

Arriaga crossed the border into Arizona illegally several years ago and has worked as a farm laborer in the Stanislaus County area, Christianson said. He has two prior driving-under-the-influence arrests and ties to the Sureño Street Gang.

So the shooter was here illegally, had been arrested TWO other times and was a known gang member. Why was he still here? Because of the stupid asinine and incredibly dangerous Sanctuary City stance the state of California has taken.

California has been diving headfirst down this dangerous path for years. Heck, they couldn’t even pass the Kate Steinle law and a jury let her killer go free. The incidences of violence involving illegals is climbing and yet our politicians have decided pandering to the illegals is the way to go.

San Fran Nan is on vacay in Hawaii and Maxine Waters went to the Bahamas instead of dealing with the government shut down. Designating funds for better border security and the border wall is not on their radar. Do they care about Corporal Singh? Nope. Not one bit.

What about the rest of the 53 member delegation from California? Crickets all over the place.

California law enforcement is hurting today. They lost one of their own and it shouldn’t have happened. Ronil Singh’s family is understandably devastated.

Reggie Singh managed to hold himself together just enough to thank all those who worked tirelessly to find his brother’s killer. A powerful moment of both anguish and grace.

I applaud Sheriff Christianson for casting the blame squarely where it belongs. On the shooter and the sanctuary city mess.

He was absolutely correct. 

“While we absolutely need to stay focused on Officer Ribuk Singh’s service and sacrifice, we can’t ignore the fact that this could’ve been preventable,” Christianson said, noting how Arriaga had several run-ins with police — which couldn’t be reported to ICE on account of California’s sanctuary law.

“Under SB54 in California, based on two arrests for DUI and some other active warrants that this criminal has out there, law enforcement would’ve been prevented — prohibited — from sharing any information with ICE about this criminal gang member,” the sheriff explained.

“Ladies and gentlemen, this is not how you protect a community.” [Emphasis Added]

We have laws in place for a reason! The sanctuary city mess protects only those who are here illegally. It leaves American citizens and those who are in this country legally twisting in the wind.

Furthermore, this sanctuary stance puts ALL of our First Responders at risk. Amazingly, CNN reported the Sheriff and Police Chief Youngblood’s remarks.

“When you tie our hands and don’t allow us to work with our federal partners and communicate with our federal partners about people who commit crimes and who are in this country illegally, we’re going to have incidents like this, not just on police officers, but on the public that we serve and protect,” he said.

What does Governor Jerry ‘Moonbeam’ Brown have to say about all of this? Not a damned thing. Instead he gives 15 illegal immigrants clemency.

What about Gavin Newsom? Did he have anything to say? Crickets.

A good officer is dead because of this entire sanctuary city crap. He would be alive today if, after the FIRST DUI arrest, the shooter had been deported.

Adopting the Sanctuary cities stance puts us ALL at risk. It needs to stop NOW. Otherwise more US citizens like Kate Steinle and Officer Ronil Singh will die.
