Alleged CA Cop Killer Dodged Law Enforcement With the Help of 7 Other People in the US Illegally

After California police officer Ronil Singh was shot, a massive manhunt broke out to find the alleged killer, Gustavo Perez Arriaga.

Authorities searched for two days until they finally found and arrested Arriaga. When they identified him, authorities announced that he was an illegal immigrant who had gang ties and prior arrests.

Now, a report from ABC News claimed that Arriaga was able to evade police for two days because he had the help of seven other illegal immigrants as he attempted to flee to Mexico, according to NewsBusters.

After the alleged shooting, Arriaga was assisted by two of his brothers as well as his girlfriend and four other acquaintances — all of whom are in the United States illegally.

Watch ABC’s coverage below:

Arriaga’s seven accomplices are in custody for “assisting the suspect in evading police.”

Singh, an immigrant from Fiji, was allegedly shot by Arriaga after pulling him over for a suspected DUI. He was only 33 years old.

The horrific shooting captured the nation’s attention, including that of President Donald Trump. He took to Twitter to make a plea for increased border security.

Singh’s death came as border security debates in Washington, D.C., continue to rage through the partial government shutdown. In anticipation for their House takeover, Democrats released details of their most recent funding bill on Monday, and it included just $1.3 billion for border wall funding. Trump requested $5 billion to fund the wall.

Outside of Washington, a debate has sparked about the use of sanctuary laws that prevent local law enforcement from partnering with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). As IJR Red previously reported, California’s sanctuary laws prevented law enforcement from partnering with ICE to deport Arriaga despite his prior arrests and gang ties.

Although charges have not been officially filed against Arriaga, he is expected to face murder charges.

Arrest all of them and then deport them after they have served their sentence! Stop the insanity!

This is what is the problem with sanctuary laws, they hide the criminals from being removed from society, because of all the loopholes. This is what needs addressing rather than a government shutdown.

Add Pelosi and Moonbeam Brown to the list of accomplices that should be arrested for aiding and abetting.

Every one that assisted him should be charged with obstruction and accessory after the fact maybe even murder. (include all of those “sanctuary” bast@rd politicians)

fun facts: despite being an illegal and being twice arrested for DUI, Arriaga remained free. In this country. Thanks sanctuary morons.

Notice as well the gun-control syndicate has yet to ask “How did he get a gun as a non-citizen and criminal.”, but they only go after law-abiding citizens.

Let’s be honest. The “wall” is not the silver-bullet solution. It must be backed by enforced legal deterrence, denial of services, and other punitive disincentives. Also minefields, armed UAVs, and technology. Major reforms to immigration policies are also needed, e.g. “birthright” citizenship.

Right now the cost of breeching the border is nominal. That’s got to change.

The current migration at our southern border is costing U.S taxpayers a Kings Ransom. Fleeing persecution? or fleeing for freebies? If there latest “Demand”; for U.S. taxpayers to fund their trip home and give them $50,000 each is any indicator, its for freebies. In any event, they sure don’t stay in Mexico when they reach “safety” or ask for political asylum in Mexico. Why? because Mexico will give them NOTHING. So they make the long journey to our border, our generous Democrats.
