According to a report by Neil Munro of Breitbart News, Los Angeles County recently slashed its police budget by $14 million. The city has joined the defund the police mania that’s sweeping across the nation since the George Floyd riots kicked off in late May.
But the LA case gets even worse. This money will now be sent to illegal aliens who were jailed and were waitingto be deported by federal agents.
The vote took place on October 12 and was meant to resolve a lawsuit filed by multiple pro-mass migration groups. The $14 million is expected to be sent to people detained by law enforcement who were assisting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) with deportations from 2010 to 2014. Nearly all of these detainees were illegal aliens.
The payouts vary from case to case. They go from $250 to $425,000 and the average payment was about $700.
“This is a very significant settlement, and it is hopefully a wake-up call to law enforcement agencies around the country who continue to hold people for ICE,” Jennie Pasquarella, an ACLU lawyer, said to the Washington Post.
These budget cuts to law enforcement come at a time when crime is rising in Los Angeles, just like many other leftist cities that have now determined that common sense policing is passe. With less resources at their disposal, LA police will likely not have the means to adequately confront the city’s rising crime.
NBCLosAngeles.com recently reported on the city’s rising incidents of crime:
The Los Angeles Police Department said Tuesday an alarming increase in street violence had continued in recent days, with at least 50 people shot and more than a dozen murdered.
‘We haven’t seen that type of week in over 10 years,’ said LAPD Assistant Chief Robert Arcos.
California has become a laboratory for radical leftist policies. Its lack of respect for fundamental freedoms such as the right to bear arms and refusal to uphold the rule of law has made it a total cesspool.
It’s no surprise why countess Californians are fleeing the state and relocating to more freedom-friendly and stable states.
ICE Issues Detainer on Illegal Alien Felon Arrested in Shootings of Two Houston Police Officers
The suspect is an illegal alien.
A man arrested in the shootings of two Houston, Texas police officers- one of whom has died- is an illegal alien.
Breitbart Texas reported that Immigration and Customs Enforcement issued a detainer request on 51-year old Elmer Rolando Manzano on Tuesday, with the immigration agency revealing that Manzano is an illegal alien with a history of felony criminal convictions in the United States.
Elmer Rolando Manzano-Martinez, 51, is a citizen of El Salvador and convicted criminal alien who is unlawfully present in the U.S. On Oct. 20, officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) in Houston, Texas, placed an immigration detainer with the Harris County (Texas) Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) on Manzano-Martinez after he was arrested for murder.
Two officers of the Houston Police Department had arrived at an apartment complex to respond to reports of a domestic disturbance, with officers having previously been called to the residence in response to instances of Manzano fighting with his wife. Upon the arrival of the police, Manzano opened fire, shooting Sgt. Harold Preston multiple times, including in the head.
65-year old Preston was a 41-year veteran of the Houston Police.
Sgt. Harold Preston was a 41-year veteran of the @HoustonPolice — a cop who led a life of significance. A hero shot and killed today, Harold was a selfless public servant who we will #NeverForget. My prayers are with his family, community, and fellow officers. @ArtAcevedo pic.twitter.com/x1NqL7CBlu

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo went on to describe Sgt. Preston as a pillar of the community at a press conference at Memorial Hermann Hospital.
“We’ve lost just a wonderful human being,” Acevedo said of Preston after announcing that he had died in the shooting. “He is leading with men and women on streets, instead of choosing to sit in an office drinking coffee and reading the paper. That is the man he was — he is a man who lived with elderly parents to take care of them. As good as he was as a cop, he was a better human being, that is just the guy that he was and we are going to miss him.”
Another officer, Courtney Waller, survived the shootings and is recovering from a gunshot to the arm.

After barricading himself in the residence, Manzano surrendered to police and was arrested hours after the shooting. Chief Acevedo expects the criminal alien to be charged with murder.
Click 2 Houston reported on Manzano’s extensive history of felony criminal convictions shortly after his arrest. The illegal alien has been convicted of unlawful carrying of a firearm in October 1994; assault in August 2000 and December 2000; felony assault and causing bodily injury to a family member in May 2001; and evading arrest with a motor vehicle in December 2002.
Somehow, the repeat felon has proved capable of remaining in the United States and evading deportation, despite his criminal history.
