Murder Is The Reward For Sanctuary Cities

Gangbangers in the once beautiful city of San Jose committed another double murder in August. As usual, the suspects are Mexican immigrants, most likely illegal, and were recently arrested.

SAN JOSE (BCN) – Suspected gang members were arrested in San Jose on Thursday in connection with the murder of two men in August, police said Friday.

The suspects were identified as Abel Herena, 26, and Juan Cruz, 27. Both are San Jose residents and documented members of a criminal street gang, according to police.

Officers arrested Herena and Cruz on a warrant in connection with the murder of 26-year-old Phillip Ayala and 27-year-old Alex Rodriguez.

The homicides occurred on the night of Aug. 28 outside The Fairways at the San Antonio Court apartment complex, located at 305 San Antonio Court.

Detectives believe Herena and Cruz also shot and injured a third person at the complex that evening.

San Jose and Santa Clara County are officially sanctuaries for illegal aliens. Santa Clara County even objects to deporting illegal alien criminals and tried to end participation in Secure Communities.

The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously today to opt out of the federal government's Secure Communities Program known as SCOMM.

The 5-to-0 vote came after more than an hour of public testimony that largely denounced the federal immigration initiative, which automatically sends fingerprints taken by local law enforcement agencies of arrested individuals to the Department of Homeland Security.

Supervisors however, admit Attorney General Jerry Brown will likely block the effort just as he did in San Francisco.

"There's been an agreement by the attorney general that would cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement and extricate the information anyway so I'm concerned with that," Santa Clara County Supervisor George Shirakawa said.

Those opposed to the government initiative say that it forces communities to live in fear and that even victims of crimes can be deported causing immigrant families to be torn apart.

Shirakawa proposed that the county send a letter to the Department of Homeland Security formally requesting that Santa Clara County not be a part of the federal program.

"We are not here to do the job of ICE," he said.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-San Jose, has been writing letters to the Department of Homeland Security to ask when and how a request to opt out would be honored.

One by one, members of the public spoke before the board calling attention to what they call the dangers of a policy that pushes illegal immigrants into hiding and makes them fearful of interacting with local police.

Laura Villalobos told the board that she knows many parents aren't even involved in their children's education or volunteer at schools because they are worried about being fingerprinted.

There were two speakers out of 18 who spoke in favor of SCOMM.

Lee Ellak of San Jose told the board that if it opted out of the Secure Communities Program, Santa Clara County would become known as a safe haven for illegal immigrants and cost the county untold millions in crime and social services that are provided to immigrants.

"ICE is trying to and Secure Communities is trying to get rid of that criminal element within the illegal immigrant community," he said.

After the board's unanimous vote to opt out of SCOMM, a large group of people at the supervisors' meeting gave the board a standing ovation for taking the position.

So, one should not be surprised that murder is the reward residents of San Jose and Santa Clara County. Well, the people there wanted sanctuary and they are continuing to get it good and hard.

Y'know, it kinda sucks to find out that an old friend you grew up with died only days before he was to become a father; what's worse is searching for that friend online,only to find some nobody using his corpse to prop up a soap box about an issue far removed from the actual crime committed. Enjoy putting sombreros on all your strawmen, bro.
