In the wake of an illegal immigrant killing a Newman police officer, Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson asked the pertinent question: Why does California give sanctuary to criminals and gang members?

My take on the whole issue is that California and national Democrats think the “rights” of illegals are more important than the rights of citizens.

The accused killer of Newman police officer Ronil Singh, a husband and father of a 5-month-old son, Gustavo Perez Arriaga had two previous drunk driving felony arrests and gang affiliations.

Before the California sanctuary law was passed by Democrats, including state Sen. Cathleen Galgiani and Assemblywoman Susan Eggman, Arriaga would have been deported and Singh would still be alive. But instead, he was never deported and when he was pulled over, he killed Officer Singh.

The Stanislaus County sheriff called the sanctuary law bad public safety policy as well as dangerous and irresponsible.

Early in December, another California county, Tulare County, had another “reign of terror” after illegal immigrant Gustavo Garcia was arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance and then released, thanks once again to the California sanctuary law.

Less than 48 hours later, Garcia would go on a rampage through Tulare County that left three dead, including Garcia, and at least seven hospitalized. He’s accused of racking up a dozen crimes in 24 hours.

These two “reigns of December terror” have been brought to Golden State citizens through the “courtesy” of California Democrats. And these Democrats, the causes of these murders, have the gall to attack President Trump.
