Stanislaus Sheriff: State sanctuary laws interfered with apprehension of suspected cop killer

The illegal immigrant suspect suspected of killing a Northern California policed officer is in custody.
Newman Police Department Corporal Ronil Singh was a lawful, legal immigrant who was killed while making a traffic stop.
Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson says Gustavo Perez Arriaga was caught in less than 50 hours, despite political interference from sanctuary laws designed to protect illegal immigrants.
He says the legislature’s concerns are misguided.
”We provide an exceptional level of protection for everyone regardless of their immigration status and this tragedy in my opinion could have been prevented.”
He says this is not the first time a law officer has been victimized by state laws that shield criminal illegals.
“Deputy Danny Oliver, Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputy, also gunned down by a criminal illegal alien.  We need to have a conversation about restrictive policies that tie the hands of law enforcement.”
He says the solution has to come from Washington.
“Congress has to find a path that provides immigrants a legal, lawful path to the United States for those who really do, like Corporal Singh, seek a better life, a better education and the American Dream.”
