This is the real face of California's sanctuary state pro-crime law.
Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza, 24, was arrested on Monday for the murder of 59-year-old Bambi Larson, who was found dead at her home in San Jose on February 28.
Police say Carranza, who has no address and is a known gang member, stalked Ms Larson through her neighborhood before breaking into her home and attacking her.
San Jose Police Chief Eddie Garcia also revealed Carranza's lengthy criminal history, which began in 2013 when he was arrested crossing the border illegally in Texas and deported back to Mexico.
That was followed by ten arrests and at least three convictions for offenses ranging from drug possession to battery, false imprisonment and burglary.
When he was arrested for Larson's murder, Carranza was on probation for possession of methamphetamine, paraphernalia, false imprisonment and burglary.
Garcia also revealed that ICE had applied nine times for a detainer on Carranza, a move which allows suspects to be held longer than their prison term so their immigration status can be investigated by federal officials.
But, in California, sanctuary state law prohibits local law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration authorities. This secessionist measure is illegal and has caused a long list of horrifying crimes like this.
All nine requests had been ignored by county officials, ICE field director Erik Bonnar said, allowing Carranza to be freed so he could offend again.
ICE applied for a tenth detainer on Tuesday, following Carranza's latest arrest.
Why bother? Just send him to Sacramento.
Bonnar told CBS San Francisco: 'How many more people have to be killed or injured before California lawmakers will open discussions to revise the state policy prohibiting local law enforcement agencies from working with ICE to apprehend dangerous criminal aliens?
How many people had to die before the Left accepted that Communism doesn't work? Based on the Left's track record in China and the USSR, not to mention Cuba and Cambodia, we'll run out of people long before they search their souls and accept the truth.
