WATCH: Sheriff Christianson Announces Arrest of Suspected Illegal Immigrant Cop Killer
Stanislaus County, California Sheriff Adam Christianson announced the arrest of the suspected illegal immigrant killer of Ronil Singh, following a manhunt for the suspect.
Suspect Gustavo Perez Arriaga was taken into custody Friday after allegedly shooting and killing Newman Police Department Corporal Singh on Wednesday.
“I want justice for the Singh family,” Sheriff Christianson said, vowing that “We were never more than a step behind this guy.”
“I don’t have any information yet on prior deportations, I simply want to focus on the fact that 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. I’m suggesting that the outcome could have been different if law enforcement wasn’t restricted, prohibited, or had their hands tied because of political interference.”
“We have to have a conversation about restrictive legislation that puts our community at risk,” Christianson also said.
