“This is a criminal illegal alien with prior criminal activity that should have been reported to ICE. We were prohibited, law enforcement was prohibited, because of sanctuary laws, and that led to the encounter with Officer Singh.”

Sheriff Adam Christianson, Stanislaus County, California




Most of the mainstream media is doing their best to ignore this story:


Gustavo Perez Arriaga, the man accused of shooting and killing Newman Police Corporal Ronil “Ron” Singh has been captured.

A total of seven other people who, authorities believe, misled law enforcement about his whereabouts or aided him in fleeing were also arrested.

TIMELINE: Manhunt and arrest of suspected Newman cop killer

The Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office says that Arriaga was taken into custody, using Cpl. Singh’s handcuffs, nearly 200 miles away in the Kern County town of Lamont early Friday morning.

The suspect’s brother, 25-year-old Adrian Virgen, and a co-worker, 32-year-old Erik Razo Quiroz, were also arrested on “accessory after the fact” charges for attempting to protect Arriaga. Authorities say both men are also in the country illegally.

Another brother of Arriaga, 34-year-old Conrado Virgen Mendoza from Chowchilla, and Arriaga’s girlfriend, 30-year-old Ana Leyde Cervantes of Newman, were arrested on Friday for aiding Arriaga in evading authorities following the murder of Corporal Singh, Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department said on Friday night. Their booking photos were released, along with that of Arriaga.


Go here to read the rest.  The dead officer was a legal immigrant from Fiji.  A Sikh, he tred a traditional path for followers of that religion who often embark on careers in the military or law enforcement, where they tend to be distinguished for courage and fidelity.  He was murdered by illegal alien Gustavo Perez Arriaga during a routine traffic stop.  The powers that be in California are doing their best to ignore this murder since it goes to the heart of two myths about illegal immigration:  that it is harmless and that society as a whole benefits from it.  Gustavo Perez Arriaga had been arrested at least twice before on DUI and had known gang affiliations.  In a sane world he would have been deported long ago.  The Sheriff of Stanislaus County rightly blames the murder of his officer on California being a sanctuary state for illegal aliens.  Corporal Singh leaves behind a wife and a baby boy.  God help them and God help us.

  1. Where are the bishops? Where is the USCCB? They are not shepherds in any sense of the word. They are blind guides who need to be left when it comes to any prudential issue. May God bless the Singh family.

  2. The media only reports stuff (largely divorced from the realities of ordinary people) that advances the leftish agenda. For example, “If not for white nationalism, the murderer would have graduated from an Ivy League Med school and discovered the cure for cancer!”

    There! You’re welcome.

  3. T. Shaw, to that end, you’ll now no longer hear about poor young Jazmine Barnes. When she was shot, her sister said it was a white man with a beard in a red truck. The press was covering it on a daily basis, followed by commentary about racism in America. A representative of Jazmine’s family said it was likely hate because of the problem of racism in America today. There were rallies and TV commentaries on the problem with racism. It turns out that the shooter was actually a Black man. Expect poor Jazmine and her family to be talked about a couple more times, then dropped into oblivion.

  4. To paraphrase Cupich, “Gustavo Perez Arriaga came here to escape violence. You just don’t like Latin Americans.”

  5. This does bring up a good question. I hear a lot about Americans supporting or opposing this or that bit about Trump’s policies (often summed up as “the wall”) but I can’t seem to find any break down of this group’s opinion on it. I know personally of some legal immigrants that support the wall, but what is the general trend? Maybe nobody’s thought to ask them or break down the data to figure it out. Maybe. Though I get the feeling that if most legals opposed the wall and wanted to abolish ICE we would be hearing more about that.

  6. Nate-
    I don’t know what the over-all balance would be (especially if you ask them when there aren’t any relatives around) but most of the border patrol I know are visibly “Hispanic” and love the idea of it being harder to get shot at.

  7. Nate: 30 Dec 2018 poll reported: 80% of polled say illegal immigration is a problem; 58% say it’s a serious problem.

    Thank God President Trump is showing the Leftists they cannot do whatever the hell they want based on phony claims of moral superiority.

    There are more economical, effective alternatives to the Wall.

    If the media and left for one second believed that illegals were Republican voters or wanted to assimilate into normal America, they’d order them to submit to mandatory abortions, order forced sterilizations, and budget $50 billion for border land mines.

  8. I feel ya T.Shaw, but I already know how those on the left will respond. Usually by assuming that those 80% are the racist, evil, no-good white/christian/whatever folk. However they usually seem to give extra weight to words of immigrants so I’d be curious if they would react to immigrants who wanted the wall. And what do they think will happen if they keep importing voters who want a wall built.

  9. Most of the US border patrol in Montreal Quebec are “Hispanic” Americans…
    I know, because in trying to bring a piece of equipment across the border on a plane, I learned that Montreal “is not a port of entry”…
    it must be shipped.
