Tulare County, Calif. Sheriff Mike Boudreaux joined Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) on Nunes’ podcast Wednesday to discuss a twice-deported illegal immigrant who went on a shooting rampage in Nunes’ district.
“So now we know that the man who was involved in the robbery, the shooting of the [migrant] field worker, the armed robbery in Pixley, as well as the shooting in Tulare are all the same man,” Boudreaux told Nunes.
Pixley is a town in Tulare county. The crime spree took place in several different towns within the county just before Christmas.
The suspect, illegal alien Gustavo Garcia, also shot a woman at a hotel at random. The crimes were committed at random in what the Sheriff called a “reign of terror.” All of the crimes took place in a matter of 24 hours.
Shortly thereafter, a man was shot and killed in a neighboring town in the county. Police suspect Garcia was involved in that homicide. Soon, police caught up with Garcia and chased him, resulting in a shootout. After the suspect evaded the police, he shot and killed a man at random.
When the police finally caught up with Garcia again, they engaged in yet another shootout. Boudreaux said at least 40-50 rounds were fired. This exchange culminated in Garcia stealing the vehicle of migrant workers and leading the police on yet another chase.
Garcia eventually crashed headfirst into oncoming traffic. He died in the accident. Fortunately, no one else in the crash was killed though one man was severely injured.
The Sheriff confirmed for Nunes that Garcia was known to police and had been deported twice previously. He had been in custody after committing a misdemeanor, but California law protects suspects from immigration status checks if they have only committed a misdemeanor. Thus, Garcia was allowed to go free.
“This is where it gets really frustrating for law enforcement, and I appreciate you bringing some attention to this,” Boudreaux said. “We – the day before [the rampage] – had Gustavo Garcia in our custody on what’s called ‘under the influence of a controlled substance.’ One of our officers had arrested him right off the street for a misdemeanor under the influence of drugs.”
The Sheriff continued to explain that since Garcia sis not have a warrant for his arrest with a large bail, he could not be held under California law. He also explained that when Garcia was arrested for the misdemeanor, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) sent the Sheriff’s office a detainer for Garcia, which was blocked because the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals determined that ICE detainers were unconstitutional.
Garcia’s final tally of barbaric behavior includes: One robbery, four shootings (resulting in at least one, but possibly two homicides), two high-speed chases, two police shootouts, one stolen vehicle and a major crash on a crowded highway.
All of this could have been avoided, but innocent lives were lost because of California’s immigration laws are utterly insane. Once again, the cost of social justice is the lives of Americans.
Worth noting: the mainstream press has not cover Garcia’s rampage.

Customs and Border Patrol Arrest 36 Camouflaged Illegal Aliens at Open Borders Organization’s Smuggling Camp
Illegal immigration is back on.
Customs and Border Patrol arrested more than three dozen illegal immigrants at a smuggling camp operated by a left-wing open borders organization in Arizona on Friday night, possibly signaling that illegal immigration is back on after the coronavirus halted human smuggling and trafficking operations at the U.S-Mexico border.
CBP Tucson Sector Chief Roy Villareal recounted the operation, which was executed on a camp operated by the ‘No More Deaths’ open borders group, which coordinates and assists in dangerous border crossings on the part of illegal aliens in southern Arizona. CBP executed a federal search warrant on the camp in Aricava, Arizona, after investigating the criminal activity associated with the facility.

“On July 31, 2020, Border Patrol agents from the Tucson Border Patrol Sector, with support from CBP Air and Marine Operation’s Tucson Air Branch executed a federal search warrant on the No More Deaths camp near Arivaca, Arizona. Upon entry, over three dozen Illegal border crossers were found within the camp,” revealed CBP in a statement to News 4 Tucson.
The group that was arrested may have been one of the biggest detained by CBP since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, which largely halted illegal immigration. The capture of larger groups of illegal immigrants in recent days and weeks may signal that large-scale human smuggling operations may be back on after a hiatus.
Chief Villareal shared CBP imagery revealing that the group formation of illegal aliens traveled directly to the No More Deaths camp in Aricava, suggesting a degree of coordination between the open borders group and the border crossers.

Federal authorities have pointed to the left-wing camp as a tool utilized by drug smugglers and criminals seeking to infiltrate the United States for years, having dismantled the camp through court order before.
Law enforcement operations occur in the area around the No More Deaths camp regularly as this is a key smuggling route for both undocumented migrants and drug traffickers.

No More Deaths continues to incentivize highly dangerous border crossings in the Sonoran Desert in the thick of the Arizona summer, endangering the lives of law enforcement, the public, and unauthorized migrants who make the treacherous journey with the promise of assistance.
